Time flies and we think it will be a great way to celebrate the friendship we have built over the years !

We had three games last Sunday and some unexpected score !

Century Park Fc 10-0 Krauts

We didn’t find a match report from Bilgin this time except a message that his team was hit by a bus…..! Century Park took control of the game and never looked back. Fafa in fine form scored a hat-trick and had a couple of assists. It was 4-0 at half time and in the second half Century Park made things worse for Bilgin troops by scoring three goals in 3 minutes (78-81 minute of the game). Krauts didn’t manage to score which is rare and conceded 10 goals which is even more rare…..! Lets see what Biling will do and how they will bounce back. Century Park Fc will in fine form will meet the team in form ERS next !

Galacticos 5-1 Japan

The galacticos are in an uptrend and are conceding less goals every week. Of course Japan is a hard opponent with the fast moving players but Galacticos defended well / They got on the score sheet by Lin.

Marlins 1-7 Lions

This encounter is dubbed as el classico of Green City and both teams came with strong line ups. It appeared to be a game with two different halves. In the first half both teams were testing each other with fast counters on both ends. The Marlins took the lead after a poor clearance left Wilson free to choose a corner. The Lions stayed calm and tried to get back in the game but missed the final touch on their counters. At half time both teams got their instructions from the coaches and the Lions took advantage of their strong bench and brought on more fresh legs some experienced and some young and fast. It was from a corner that Fabie levelled the game 1-1. Zippy got a big chance to put the Marlins back ahead but his effort went wide and within a couple of minutes the Lions scored two more goals by Jona and Nicolas both players who started on the bench. This quick turn- around unsettled the Marlins and they started to lose grip on the midfield. The Lions kept coming and took advantage of the open space. On fast counters they scored another three goals to make the final score 1-7.


This Sunday we will have just one game as some teams will participate in the Veteran Masters Tournament
