Boca pounce on Agua

The fastest goal of the Heineken Sunday League season was scored on Sunday when Boca Juniors’ Yannick Solomon hit the net against Agua with only 15 seconds gone.

Boca kicked off to start the match and without an Agua player even touching the ball, Solomon sprinted past his marker to fire home. Then Boca’s top scorer Henry Mitchell broke the off-side trap to score. After the restart Agua’s Dan Cummings scored before Boca’s veteran Ardin ‘Cheeky’ Rivers restored his side a two goal cushion with a composed finish. That was the way the match finished and inflicted a fatal blow to Agua’s defence of their Championship Crown.

Second placed Triple Crown Wanderers kept up their winning run when they faced CML Claymores at the TE McField Annex. Claymores offered little in the way of a threat, but did defend manfully as they repelled waves of the Wanderers attack and after some near misses the pressure finally told on 27 minutes when Rico Brown hit an unstoppable shot. Into the second half and the Claymores, without substitutes to call upon, started to wilt as the morning temperatures soared which allowed Wanderers to take advantage with two more by Brown who claimed an impressive hat-trick. CML remain at the bottom of the table for another week.

Prison picked up their second 5-1 victory on the bounce, this time against the Old Boys, who were themselves defeated for a second week in a row 5-1. Derron Campbell fired home first for Prison. Old Boys player-manager Steve Henshaw kept his nerve with a penalty kick which was retaken twice before his last kick was deemed satisfactory by the referee, pulling his team back into the match. After the interval Old Boys tired as they tried to contain Prison’s crisp passing game, but were helpless as Prison hit four unanswered goals with a Joe Wright brace followed by Campbell’s second and Bradley Grant completing the scoring.

Leaders Harry’s faced a stern test of their championship credentials against MC Devils at Ed Bush on Sunday and for 60 minutes the Devils matched everything Harry’s could throw at them before finally stumbling. Devils snatched the lead when a hand ball resulted in a penalty which full-back Kevin Ashworth dispatched. The game was levelled soon after when Firstbrook out ran his marker to slot the ball home and tie the game at half-time. Just a minute after the restart Harry’s pulled ahead for the first time when league top-scorer Floyd ‘Irons’ McKenzie kept up his remarkable scoring record when he converted an easy chance. The Devils keeper pulled off some first class saves to keep his side in the game as he was called upon with increasing regularity as Harry’s stepped up their attack – but with two minutes left Harry’s made the game safe when Yaz had an easy tap in from four yards 
for a 3-1 win.
