Agua are no longer perfect

Controversy reigned in the Heineken Sunday League game between Harry’s FC and Agua FC at the weekend.

The match was delicately poised with Harry’s leading 2-1 but with only minutes remaining Agua were awarded a crucial penalty. De Riso of Agua stepped up to take the spot kick and managed, at the second attempt, to put the ball into the net after Parry in Harry’s goal saved his initial kick – however much to Agua’s dismay the referee disallowed the goal under mysterious circumstances.

In a game of few chances Agua took the lead against the run of play when Fajette scored just before half-time. After the interval Harry’s managed to pull level thanks to Chris Fenn’s sixth goal of the season. Then came the first of two penalties, the first for Harry’s following a push at a corner kick – but in the confusion that followed a melee developed which resulted in Fenn’s morning going from good to bad with a red card.

Irons McKenzie was entrusted with the spot-kick and he kept his nerve to tuck the ball home for a 2-1 lead. Then followed the controversy with Agua’s penalty but with no time left to equalise Agua’s unbeaten record in the Sunday League came to a shuddering halt after 13 games. The earlier game at the TE McField Annex was a cagey affair when International Kickers hosted CML Claymores. Kickers scored first when Tinoco got his head to a cross for his seventh goal of the campaign after three minutes. CML battled away and equalised when Alan Johnson scored 18 minutes. Each team enjoyed periods of pressure thereafter but there was no further scoring and a point apiece was just about the right result between two even sides.

Meanwhile at Ed Bush, AC Lunetta and Old Boys met in a one-sided match with Old Boys coming out on top with a convincing 8-0 victory against their luckless opponents. The score was 4-0 at half-time through Cummings, Coulsen, Chivers and Graham. Into the second and Henry Mitchell got a brace followed by Munden and finally Tatum rounded off the scoring giving Old Boys their biggest win of the season.

Mid-table MC Devils had the distinction of having the meanest defence in the league. That was before Sunday’s game when their goals conceded column jumped from 13 up to 19 after Fire Pros Boca Juniors crushed them 6-1. Devils chief tormentor was Mike Ebanks who got four and team mate Carlos Welcome chipped in with two while their consolation goal was scored by Ian Jamieson.
