Red Star 45's Report:

" Sky must be kicking themselves they weren’t at this one to fill some screen time. A 6 goal thriller of a second half with a last minute equaliser for Dementia provided a fitting end to foreseeable fixtures. Red Star were under the cosh for much of the first half, relying on some miraculous goalkeeping and some good work by the crossbar to keep it goal-less at half time. An unfortunate own goal against Red Star early in the second 45 threatened to be the harbinger of an onslaught, but a surprise equaliser by Gareth from close range saw things suddenly shift in favour of the Reds in Green. A slippery mix up at the back for Dementia allowed Red Star to take the lead with Will ushering the ball over the line. Feathers fell briefly when Dementia themselves equalised, but an incisive through ball from Si was enough to cut open the less than Rapid defence, allowing Red Star’s “4ft 2 cheating/diving dwarf” to have almost the last laugh, winning the race with the advancing keeper to slide the ball home from 35 yards. Red Star almost finished things off when Tahir came within the width of the woodwork from converting after the keeper struggled with a soapy low cross, but alas it was not to be. Dementia launched one last attack and when the ball emerged through a despairing defence, evaded a despairing tackle and spun past a despairing goalkeeper, a cruel finale was ensured. Red Star left the pitch disappointed not to have taken all the points, but in reality they rode their luck at several moments against a quality opposition. A draw against the league leaders is a fair achievement. I think everyone involved would say this game was exactly the reason we all still pull on our boots and get out there and play. Send us floods, send us plagues, but don’t take our football away. "
