The five-a-side football season
reaches the playoffs at the King’s Sports Centre next week and the competitive
element is as entertaining as ever. The three WestTel Five-A-Side leagues have
become an integral part of the sports scene and many Premier League players use
games as a top up for their fitness and match sharpness. They are bound to
continue to grow now that new company Logic is the new main sponsor.
Before this week’s games, in
Division One Burger King and WestTel were neck and neck with 30 points each
having lost only once in their 11 matches. Burger King’s Rene Carter was the
top scorer on 17 and Chris Ebanks of Abbleby second with 15. Way behind in third
place were Old Boys on 19 points and then Transformers on 15. BDO-Tortuga were
fifth, then Appleby and Chilled @ Aqua Beach seventh.
In Division Two, Centre Spot
started the week top on 27 points with only one loss all season – 5-3 to newcomers
CFP Buzz Crusaders in the third week. Defending champions Paramount All Stars
were second and Coconut Joe’s third. Before Monday’s games the Centre Spot duo
of Lee Parry (16 goals) and Ben Marler
(15) were top scorers. Ricoh Brown of HSBC also had 15 goals.
In the third division, undefeated
PWC had won nine and drawn two to be way ahead on 29 points of Heineken
All-Stars who had 17. KPMG Blue Iguana were third on 14 points.
Richard Crozier had hit the net an
incredible 25 times for PWC, way ahead of Heineken’s Junio Hurlston (14) and
the KPMG pair of Miklos Ujhelyi and TC Mhlanga, both on 10.
Meanwhile, the co-ed finals are on
this Sunday between the No.1 team Scotiabank against the second seeded McAlpine
United at 4pm.
