The Doghouse Devils are closing in on indoor football’s number one spot.
Doghouse currently sit first in the 2013 Kings Sports Centre men’s summer league, with 21 points and a 7-1 record. The Devils beat Transformers, 8-2, in their week nine clash last week. William Foster had a hat-trick, Fran Donoghue had a brace with Martin Cooke and Kevin Ashworth adding to the winners’ tally. Transformers, now seventh out of nine teams at 3-1-4 with 10 points, surrendered an own goal but had scores from Chris Douglas and Jevon Nickelson.
Doghouse took over the top spot from the Cayman Free Press Buzz Crusaders, who dropped to second at 6-2 with 18 points after losing to CML, 4-2.
Dave McLaughlin and Andres Ruiz scored for CFP while CML got a brace from Graham Blyth and goals from Lee Hart and Steve McIntosh. CML are now fourth at 4-1-3 with 13 points.
The Dominion Devils beat PwC, 5-3, thanks to a brace from Mike Kenna. Steve Wilson had PwC’s lone goal. With the victory, Dominion are third at 5-3 with 15 points while PwC are eighth at 2-6 with six points.
KPMG II, nicknamed the Titans, beat their office mates at KPMG, 8-1. Iamuwana Mhlanga was among the scorers for the winners while Ken Smith had the lone goal for the losers.
Week 10 of the league took place this week, with the last games on Wednesday night as CFP faced Deloitte and KPMG II battled PwC. The playoffs are slated to begin next week and Kings assistant director André Morgan said seeding will be important.
“Remember, the first place teams get a bye before the playoffs and the last placed team at the end of the regular season doesn’t make it to wildcard week,” Morgan said. “We are approaching the end of the summer league and next season we will have two divisions as usual, Division One/Competitive and Division Two/Social. The expected start date is the week of 30 September and the expected end date is the week of 16 December.”
