Game Report by Real JVL: Game Report by Mind Smart United:
It was a tough night for Real JVL as they played Mind Smart United for the second time this season. The first game ended in a 1-1 draw, but the odds were against a similar result this time. JVL started the game with 9 players and then added one more, and among the missing were their starting and backup keepers as well as the team’s leading scorer. Mind Smart had a roster of 20, and their biggest concern was making sure everyone got sufficient playing time -- a first-world problem if ever there was one.

JVL defended valiantly in the first half but ended up conceding two goals, the first of which was arguably offside and the second was the result of a mixup in the box between keeper and centre back. They also had a few opportunities on the counter and the game could easily have been tied at the half. But 20 against 10 was just too much, and JVL started to wilt under the constant pressure from Mind Smart in the second half. Mind Smart potted three more for a final score of 5-0. It was a clean, hard fought game but JVL were fairly beaten.
