The Apple Blossoms beat the Pistachio Cherries 1-0 in an eight-aside football match held at the Wuxi Worker’s Stadium in the Hui Shan District on Tuesday.

A crowd of 150,000 watched the mid-week match which opened the 2012-13 Wuxi Expat E-Aside Football League (WEEAFL) season.

The crowd, clearly cheering for the Apple Blossoms, screamed loudly and lustily after Blossoms’ Mid-Fielder Julius Crispy headed a perfectly delivered corner, from striker Chad "Choo Choo" Smith-Johnson, that was able to barely the elude the grasping and perfectly-manicured hands of a diving Pistachio Cherries Goalkeeper Kenny "Kisses" Dryden.

"It was a super-duperly placed header by Crispy!" said Dryden. "All my Pistachio Cherries teammates were just so jealous of Crispy who besides making a superb header was able to keep his hair in place when he scored the goal!"

After the match, the team shook hands, patted each other, and hugged in a spirit of fraternal sportsmanship. An invitation from the Apple Blossoms to shower in the Blossom’s well-appointed shower facilities was readily accepted by the Pistachio Cherries team.
