Amigo’s and Amiga’s,
We had a record 7 SPL games on Sunday. 3 games were in the SPL Veterans who kicked of their new season. The cowboys made their debut in the Veteran League and lost their first game which tells a lot about the level of the Veteran league. In the SPL we had 4 games and its interesting at the top with the top teams all winning their games and at the bottom things can as well change as teams are within close range of each other !
Krauts 0-6 ERS
It was a bad weekend for Bilgin’s troops as they couldn’t find the net which is rare but we have not seen Stas around for a while and that might explain it. Bilgin was not around and those statistics don’t lie ….as most of the time they will lose. ERS on the other hand have been playing with the same squad week in and week out and had no problem to beat the Krauts despite their manager Sam not being around. The first half was 2-0 and in the second half the scored another four goals. Ondrej scored a hat-trick !
MMFC 1–8 Marlins
Steve was back at the helm of the Marlins but in the first 45 minutes the players seemed not ready or at least didn’t impress the manager. It was 5 minutes before the first half end that Gui opened the score with a free kick. The manager took charge of the half time speech and it worked for the Marlins as within minutes Gui scored his second. But as we know MMFC never give up and they blasted home a strike unstoppable for stand in goalie Banksy to come back in the game. Gui in fine form had other plans and completer his hat-trick. In the last part of the game the Lally and Rosselli partnership proved deadly for MMFC as the netter another 5 goals to make the final score 1-8 !
Japan – Lions 1-3
Japan is always a tricky opponent as they don’t allow the other team to switch off as they never stop and keep playing football regardless of the score. The Lions team looked strong on paper and proved to be strong on the day with good passing combinations. However disaster struck for the Lions when Jack headed home a deflected corner in his own goal ! The lions stayed calm and waited for their chance. A long run by Aga free on the right and his ball in was finished by Felix to equal the score. The Lions took the lead just before half time with a header by Fabi. In the second half the legs started to get a bit tired of both teams but the lions had plenty of opportunities but the Japanese goalie was outstanding. Azz put the game to bed with a good header over the Japanese goalie who was out of his box to make the final score 1-3 !
Galacticos 0–1 Century Park
It was hard for the Century Park players to play on the pitch of SCSC as they miss their home turf at Century Park. Full credit to the Galacticos who believed in a major upset until the end but with only 10 minutes to go it was Singhi who scored what proved the winner for Century Park in the end !
This weekend we have only two games as SCSC will host a Frisbee tournament on Sunday.
