Wanderers top over break

Triple Crown Wanderers will top the Heineken Sunday League over the Christmas break after they beat CML Claymores at the weekend.

Wanderers and CML went into the game level at the top of the table on 16 points at Ed Bush in West Bay.

Wanderers went ahead through William Dias on 22 minutes then went two up in the second half through Atkinson and that is how it stayed.

CML came closest to a goal when from a corner the ball was headed off the line. The Claymores lost only their second game all season.

The third side that shared top spot were Agua and they played Latitude 19 Boca Juniors at Ed Bush. Agua started brilliantly when after two minutes Walter Fajette capitalised on a defensive error.

Boca equalised after 19 minutes through an Ariel Tatum thunderbolt from 30 yards.

Agua striker Massimo Tirotta fired home from 10 yards for the winner.

Elsewhere, it was a bottom of the table clash at the TE McField Annex when Shellaz registered their first points of the season after beating Old Boys 4-1 to move off the bottom of the table on goal difference.

Shellaz got the opener through a fortuitous handball decision in the Old Boys penalty box after only five minutes and Christopher Morgan made no mistake.

Old Boys equalised through Steve Coulson who ran at the defence before slipping the ball into the net.

Shellaz should have retaken the lead when they were awarded second penalty for handball, but on this occasion the ball was hit the wrong side of the post.

Then in the 26th minute Shellaz made it 2-1 when from a corner kick the ball struck Patrick McDonald and ended up in the back of the net.

After the interval Philip Doyley grabbed a brace to make it 4-1 to Shellaz. His first was headed home at another corner and the second a well struck shot from 20 yards.

The last game of the weekend saw Maples Revolution fall to a 3-0 defeat to Harry’s at the TE McField Annex.

Few clear cut opportunities were created, but the one real piece of quality resulted in a goal when Harry’s produced a crisp passing move that Chris Fenn finished off.

After the interval Harry’s dominated and striker Floyd ‘Irons’ McKenzie struck twice. His first came soon after the restart from a free kick that the Maples keeper failed to hold and McKenzie knocked in the rebound. His sixth goal of the season arrived soon afterwards for a comprehensive 3-0 victory.

The next round of fixtures for the Sunday League team is in the New Year in the first round first leg matches of the CML Cup, where the most mouth watering clash is between CML Claymores and Agua.
