[SPL News] Marlins see red but stay on top of the SPL !

Amigo’s and Amiga’s,

Last Sunday October 16th, 2016 we had good playing condition unfortunately only two games as Galacticos had two team events on the day and couldn’t field enough players.

Marlins 6–1 Krauts

No Bilgin and No Manu but plenty of players for the Krauts ! Statistics of the Krauts winning games while king Bilgin is not there are not looking good as it would be a single digit figure. Marlins started strong and scored quick by James after a one two with Pete. Soon there was a second after a goal keeper error scored by Jamie Lally. The Krauts kept trying hard on fast counters and succeeded by a fast break on the wing and good finish by Gonzalo. Pete of the Marlins made it 3-1 with a fine header after a good cross. With half an hour gone there was a bust up between two players of each team and kevin gave them the marching orders. Bad luck stroke again for the Marlins as Ash Reid was unlucky to rupture and Achilles tendon and will be out for several months (We wish him a speedy recovery !). James scored his second for the Marlins just before half time. In the second half it was more of the same but when Banksy committed a professional foul it was his second yellow and Kevin ordered him to shower early ! Marlins left with 9 players only still managed to score two goals by Jamie G and James for his hat trick !

Century Park FC 3–0 Japan

Usually its Japan who are the best prepared for the start of the game but this time Century Park scored after 4 minutes by Fafa and soon scored their second by Shingi who scored two minutes later. Japan had to run behind the facts for the rest of the game and to finish of their solid performance they scored their third goal with 5 minutes to go by Shingi again.

 

This weekend we will have three games all at Waigaoqiao and the outlook is for rain but we should be good to play !

  • 1300-1500 Krauts – Galacticos @ Waigaoqiao
  • 1300 – 1500 ERS – Japan @ Waigaoqiao
  • 1500-1700 Lions – Super 48 @ Waigaoqiao

 

Enjoy the games !

Cheers Freek / Yamada-san

[SPL News] Big scores in the SPL

Amigo’s and Amiga’s,

We had our first “three locations 5 games weekend” as Waigaoqiao is becoming available again after the cricketers are packing up! Its more difficult to manage but in return we are able to play more games. For the teams who didn’t pay the fee yet you need to contact me and make an arrangement ASAP ! We are already looking forward to the Santa Cup 2012 please write down the date 16 December. It will be largest Santa Cup ever with over 20 teams attending and we do hope for some early snow to make it more attractive !

  • Gremio 3-0 Super 48

As per above picture the Hawks changed into Gremio and that means more camera’s at the pitch and more samba football in Jinqiao ! Gremio was nice to Super 48 as they missed many opportunities and to be fair both Super goalies did a good job to keep the damage small.

Not the result the Lions wanted to see but they could only blame themselves by not taking their chances ! As this was a 1000 AM Waigaoqiao kick off the Lions found a few players missing due to the Halloween parties in Shanghai the night before.

  • Shanghai 2000 3-4 ERS

ERS is still unbeaten this season and the man in form Nico Ch scored a hat-trick ! Shanghai 2000 is getting more and more used to the SPL level and come close in this game.

  • Pistolera Bulls 1-10 Cowboys

Bilgin’s men were not ready as they found themselves trailing 0-3 within the first 15 minutes. Cowboys were in control of the Bulls and that seems logical if you are a Cowboy!

  • Marlins 13-1 Galacticos

Not sure whether this was a football game looking at the score line ! Fedja the Marlins striker already scored 14 goals this season so defenders you are warned upfront !

Next Sunday we have four games :

  • 930-1130 ERS – Super 48
  • 1130-1330 Gremio – Japan
  • 1330-1530 Flamenkos – Cowboys
  • 1400-1600 Pistolera Bulls – Shanghai 2000

Hope that some of the lower ranked teams can get some points this Sunday ! Good Luck to everybody !

 

Cheers
Freek – SPL President on behalf of the SPL Committee
