It’s a reasonably clear day down near the beach and as the table tells us it is tight at the top! Sacred Heart 5 wins and 15 points, Uni White 4 wins 1 draw 13 points and Uni SA 3w 1d and 1L on 10 points. Today’s game will be tough as Immanuel are mid table and have performed well against the top sides drawing with Mercedes and Uni SA! This is one will need to see the boys at there best away from home to get the points! Scoring Goals will be the key! (No kidding genius) if the whites can put 2 away the stats say they cannot be beaten!
My prediction 2-1 win with the whites defense again a critical factor! As I wait for the pre game warm ups to start I ponder what happen to Marine Land that use to be just down the road and the 2 dolphins they had? I wonder how many of the current team have had a Sunday session at the Grand? Will the salt air bring out the best in the unbeaten whites and finally as a plane flys over how the hell do they stay in the sky! Anyway back to the warm ups and Immanuel look like a side with experience and youth they took some time in a huddled talking tactics and seem switched on for the match. Their warm up was well organIsed and they are a team to be dealt with! This will be a challenge. The whites lads inspecting the pitch a keen to play on what looks like a fantastic surface of artificial turf! This is a great set up down here and this should be a belter! The breeze is favoring the southern end which could be the scoring end? Bres instructions – play to feet, use the width but it’s a big pitch so play smart there’s 2 halves!
The first half starts and The whites are kicking to the northern end after Jahn the captain for today has the toss.
Early yellow after a late tackle puts some pressure on Immanuel
7 mins and a free kick to Immanuel but easy save!
A corner to the whites is cleared and then quick free kick and a shot saved. The whites seem to be enjoying the smooth surface and looking good. 72 for them looks the man with some searching runs early!
Immanuel get the free and it’s poked wide!
Throw in and a shot on goal by Eddie and just saved should have been 1 nil to the whites! Up the othe
