Soccer Match
This is a huge battle night going on today. Runfast gives away the ball but TeamGreen's attack fizzles out. That really silenced the crowd. The game has started off in a high tempo, which is a great sign. SHOT! Whiteshorts is too slow and the TeamPurple goalkeeper is able to work the ball. Whiteshorts shoot ends up with nothing. TeamGreen initially defends their side but the ball comes back into the middle. The game has been very open in the first eight minutes. CLOSE! Bluetshirts hit it, but the ball ends high of the target. YELLOW CARD! Referee cautions Curlyhairs. Blackhairs has taken a whack to the face and needs to leave the field to clear up his bloodied nose. After 30 seconds or so of treatment on the sidelines, the centre-back is allowed back on. GOAL! Team Green 0-1 Team Purple (ANTHONY FASTLEGS)

The crowd looks possessed! Captain grins wider than the Joker today, as his team wins. White and Black were terrific upfront, and they looked like they'd take the game away.
Smith and Brown looked the same way before a terrific catch by Green. It's always exciting on a surface like that.
Orange played well, but I think we just lacked the kick at the end of the chase. It's all about making sure you strike.
Anyway, the team had a simple and effective plan. I think getting the winning feeling in is important and I think this is an important game building up to the World Cup.
