After being at the top of the
league for the majority of the season Agua Football Club were at last deservedly
crowned Heineken League Champions for season 2010-11 last weekend.
Agua headed into the last round of
fixtures two points clear of second placed Fire Pros Boca Juniors and needed to
take something from their match with last season’s winners Harry’s FC to claim
A draw would have been enough for
Agua to clinch the title due to their superior goal difference, but in the end,
they ground out a 2-1 victory to claim their first Sunday League crown.
Stephan Kormos’s in-swinging corner
somehow managed to squeeze home between a Harry’s defender and the post on the
half-hour mark. Irons McKenzie hit Harry’s equaliser after 60 minutes before
Walter Fajette hit his tenth goal of the season ten minutes from time for the
Fire Pros defeated MC Devils 3-1 at
the TE McField Annex. Michael Broderick hit the first of his two goals from the
penalty spot for Fire Pros. Sandwiched in between these two was a screamer from
Taka Mhoshiwa who curled a shot into the top corner. Fire Pros completed the
scoring on the day when Al Hogarth powered home a header three minutes before
International Kickers lost 3-0 to CML
Claymores. CML raced to a 2-0 lead thanks to strikes from Simon Conway and
Chris Turrell. The scoring was completed in the second half thanks to Ben

AC Lunetta rounded off their
completely forgettable campaign with a 21st defeat. With the points gained
column sitting at zero they did manage to gain a crumb of consolation when they
scored to loud cheering during their game against Old Boys for only their fifth
of the season by Jerney Zavadlev.
By the time Zavadlev scored they
were already three goals behind, Henry Mitchell hitting two with strike partner
Coulson getting the other. Mitchell scored again in the closing moments for a
4-1 Old Boys win.
The only player sitting in the top
three spots of the Golden Boot table to score at the weekend was Mitchell who
was last season’s top scorer. He took his tally to 22 with his hat-trick to
leap frog Tirotta of Agua into second place. But it wasn’t enough to catch Fire
Pros’ Mike Ebanks at the top whose 24 goals earned him the Golden Boot award.
This weekend the Sunday League
season closes with Agua FC attempting to win the coveted double against
International Kickers in the CML Cup final. Kick-off is at 8.30am at the
