Game Report by Brandt's Creek: Game Report by Mabui:
Brandt’s started the game with 9 players but contained Mabui until a full complement was on the field. Mabui struck first with a fine diving header. Brandt’s then got to grips and great work from wing wizard McCrae (who knew?) lead to a cross and a back-post header from Mal “Motor” Nordine to tie things up again. Mabui were awarded a penalty for a handball, but Colin "The Cat" Bennett pulled off a great one handed save to keep things level at the break.
Second half began like the majority of the first with Brandt’s on top but not taking advantage of the multitude of chances. Bennett had to be sharp and brave again to save at the feet of a Mabui striker. Finally, the Brandt’s pressure paid off with Brad "Hammer" Grange finishing off a fine move with a low shot placed into the corner. Injuries then played a part again as two Brandt’s players had to leave the field reducing Brandt’s to 10 players for the last 15 mins. As Mabui tried to take advantage of their extra man “Motor” Nordine capitalized on a mix up in the Mabui defence and coolly stoked the ball into an empty need from 30 yards out. Just to keep things interesting Mabui notched a second with a few minutes remaining, but Brandt’s kept cool heads and played the game out to seal the 3-2 win.
