Heineken Sunday League leaders Agua were edged out in a five goal showpiece by Harry’s at the weekend.
Agua have been riding high in the league recently, only losing once all season and their confidence was high ahead of their clash with Harry’s at the TE McField Annex.
Harry’s scored first in the 24th minute through Manuel Gutierrez. Agua’s Massimo Tirotta pounced to equalise immediately after.
After the interval Harry’s Cadassie Pollard scored and then their captain Chris Fenn made it 3-1 from a penalty.
Agua were then awarded a penalty in the 64th minute and Dan Cummings demonstrated why he’s the league top scorer for his seventh of the season.
In the remaining minutes Agua threw everything at their opponents to force the equaliser, but despite coming close it remained 3-2.
At Ed Bush in West Bay second in the table Triple Crown Wanderers took advantage of Agua’s slip up, winning 2-0 against Old Boys to leap frog over Agua to the top of the table on goal difference.
Wanderers goals came from Joaquim Martins on 35 minutes and Emmanuel Brown in the second half.
The second game at Ed Bush was between Maples Revolution and Latitude 19 Boca Juniors. Maples controlled a lot of the possession in the first half but despite this dominance fell behind to Ariel Tatum’s goal after 28 minutes. Into the second-half Maples eventually got the reward they deserved when Paul Hennessy latched onto a low cross to fire home.
Then with just two minutes left Maples hit Boca when James Plowright bundled the ball home with his chest. This late goal stunned Boca and gave them their third defeat in as many weeks. The remaining fixture of the weekend was the entertaining clash between CML Claymores and a Shellaz FC whose players cut dashing figures when they took to the field in their new bright orange uniforms.
CML broke the deadlock when Kevin Gillette hit a thunderbolt from around 35 yards. Shellez bounced back to make it 1-1 before half-time thanks to Wayne Heslop.
In the second-half Shellaz pulled ahead for the first time when Damion Spencer scored from the penalty spot. Thereafter the half belonged to CML and in particular to their in-form striker Tim Edwards who hit a superb hat-trick.
CML first pulled level through Chris Turrell and then Edwards his three goals in succession, his most impressive was a hooked shot at full sprint past a helpless keeper. CML’s Des Harris powered a header into the goal, but unfortunately for him it was past his own keeper for a consolation Shellaz goal which rounded off the scoring at 5-3.
The top of the Heineken Sunday League is exceptionally tight with only one point separating the top four sides and two of these teams, CML Claymores and Triple Crown Wanderers meet this weekend in a match-of-the-day clash.
