Paperight Papercuts 5 – 6 Random House Struik Running with Scissors
The inaugural indoor football match for the newly-formed Paperight Papercutz ended in a narrow 5–6 loss to Random House Struik Running with Scissors.
The match was a close affair, with the lead see-sawing between the two sides the entire way throughout. Despite flagging energy reserves, Paperight managed to enter the final stages of the match at 5–5 after being down 3–4 at half-time, but with with 40 seconds remaining on the clock, RHS scored with a neat volley to snatch the victory.
Paperight were spirited in their loss, but suffered a knee injury to Oscar Masinyana and a face-bruising to Tarryn Anderson, both soon on their way to represent the company at London Book Fair next week. (I suppose football matches before big conferences aren’t the best idea.)
Congrats and thanks to Random House Struik for coming to Claremont Arena, our new official home ground, and we look forward to settling the score in the return fixture in Gardens in a month’s time.
Perhaps it’s time for a Cape Town publishing indoor football league?
