Round 6 and the whites sit 3-2 with a great win against Rostrevor last week to deliver them their first loss for the year! (That was sweet & boo Hoo to those whingers)
We must keep in mind the whites are 1 win off top!
Today see the unknown Woodside who are new to the competition come to the city to meet the whites at home.
So far the woodchoppers aka warriors are winless, racking up some big defeats so all goes well for a whites victory.
It’s another perfect day at 23 degrees ( who said climate change does have its advantages! Bloody Greens)
The pitch is in great condition with with a breeze springing up favoring the city but scoring should be done at both ends I apologize for today’s report as I need to play taxi during the first half as son no. 2 needs a lift to the Footy at 1.20 (soft and yes my fault I know) anyway I will try to pick things up as we go!
Warm ups and the whites go through their normal routine and look sharp! One change Wes in and Darren out with a calf injury
Woodside are in the Crystal Palace colors who also play in tonight’s FA cup final against ManU (let’s hope they win tonight but not today) they seem a young and old side (with 4 oldies) and at 12.40 have not started their warm up and are getting change still!
12.45 and 5 woodcutters stand in a circle and kick the ball to each other!!! I observe they look like they are not the fittest side in the competition and most seem built with extra insulation for the cold days and nights up in the hills.
The breeze is now a wind!
The football next to us is boring as Adelaide Uni lead 7.7 to 1.1 against Flinders Uni
It is official Woodside are the first team we have played not to do a proper warm up! What do they expect no wonder they are 5 zip
Ok we are ready to go and the first half Is off and running.
All whites early and John wins the ball in the middle and plays in Abdul for number 1. A nice finish
Another attack and Sol crosses in but too long for Hamood
While I was away
Woodside in and a long ball results in a goal
Rob A scored
Header goal to John
Penalty missed by John
Ball through the middle and john to Sol he is one on one and beats the keeper for our 4th
Woodside cross in but the header wide and Dan take the goal kick
Hamood down the left cut back to Saba but it’s wide.
Hamood wins the ball with a great tackle in the middle and passes to Abdul and he is in in goal and powers it passes the keeper from number 5
Abdul again but no offside and again offside. I think Abdul can see a double hatrick
The whites are in and Jonny hit but no, he hits it again but no. Hits it again and it’s over the top! WTF?!?!
Whites forward and it’s Abdul again for number 3! I have lost count! I think it’s 6 – 1
Abdul 3, Johnny 1, Sol 1, RobA 1
Anyway whites in again and Johnny nearly knocks the goal keeper out! But no goal
Wes get his chance as he is subbed on
Whites go again as this as expected is a cake walk
A bad tackle and a yellow as Rob2 gets hacked down. Rob takes the free kick and a curling ripper finds Sava’s toe for our 7th
Balls worked forward and Wes hits it but saved
Wes cut through the middle and Johnny is just wide
Saba passes to Wes and a shot on the outside of his boot and it’s pushed away. Great effort
Hamood down the left and a great cut back and Johnny bangs it in for number 8 ..finally johnny
The middle field is dominating
Saba breaks and the walk goes wide to Wes and he smashes it in for number 9.
We are close to full time! Is there 10?
Hamood hacked down and is subbed off
Free kick Woodside and its in the wall which was Wes just standing there of to the left!
And that’s full time a lazy 9-1 victory. I missed 30 mins but I can say it was simply a slaughter.
Whites 4-2 for the year and goal difference took a health boost!
Simply All played well! That’s it!!
