The Heineken Sunday League made a welcome return over the weekend with CML Claymores, Harry’s FC, Atletico Luca and OtisAir Wanderers all winning.
At the TE McField Annex, CML Claymores striker Steve Lovell was his team’s hero when he caught the Fidel’s Old Boys defenders napping early in the game by pouncing to fire home for a 1-0 victory.
Then at the Annex, Harry’s went ahead against Boca Juniors through predatory striker Floyd “Irons” McKenzie on 38 minutes.
Harry’s withstood some Boca pressure before killing the game off with a second goal on 62 minutes from Kristopher Pearson for a 2-0 win.
Maples Revolution, who finished second in the league last season, were defeated by Atletico Luca. Maples went ahead when midfielder Dennis Lee fired home. Luca made an immediate reply, equalizing through Kordel Thompson’s first goal for his new team.
Luca’s Delano Mitchell put them ahead after the break and striker Mike Stroh completed the 3-1 win.
Last season’s champions, OtisAir Wanderers, faced Shellaz and produced the most eye-catching performance of the weekend with a 9-1 victory at West Bay’s Ed Bush stadium.
In blazing sunshine, Cohen Daley played an intelligent one-two for Wanderers before scoring.
Then Wanderers striker Derron Campbell was left unmarked in front of goal and he had plenty of time to pick his spot.
Campbell’s strike partner Peter Rose weaved his way through the Shellaz defense before taking the ball around the keeper to finish from close range for their third.
Shellaz were awarded a penalty for a handball infringement and player-manager Matthew Owens scored. After the break, Rose hit his second to make it 4-1. Shellaz battled manfully but their resistance crumbled when three goals flew in during a 13-minute period as Campbell and Rose claimed their hat-tricks. Andre Berghaus and Rodrick Pearson added for Wanderers to complete the rout.
This weekend at the TE McField Annex, CML hosts the Wanderers while Boca takes on Luca and at Ed Bush Old Boys and Shellaz are matched while Harry’s face Maples.
