‘Irons’ hat-trick boosts Harry’s

The Heineken Sunday League matches at the weekend resulted in victories for Maples Revolution, Harry’s and OtisAir Wanderers. 

In week 4 of the season, first at the TE McField Annex saw Maples Revolution pick up their second win with a 2-1 victory against Shellaz.  

Ray Hydes scored for Shellaz after six minutes, and in the second half the Shellaz defense continued to frustrate the Maples attack. 

Richard Crozier got the crucial touch on 58 minutes to draw the teams level.  

Four minutes later, the Shellaz resistance crumbled when striker James Plowright got the decisive winning goal. 

Harry’s hosted Fidel’s Old Boys in the second match at the Annex, and prolific striker Floyd “Irons” McKenzie scored all their goals in their 3-1 win.  

McKenzie struck the opener on 26 minutes, only for Old Boys to restore parity five minutes later thanks to Anthony Williams with a brilliant header.  

The match was put beyond the reach of the Old Boys when McKenzie struck on 52 and 54 minutes, both penalties. The first one came after Steve Wilson was brought down and the other one was from a handball to bring his season’s tally to six.  

Old Boys could have got one back late in the game but were denied by the crossbar. 

OtisAir Wanderers left it late to snatch all three points against Atletico Luca at Ed Bush in West Bay.  

With the game tied at 1-1 and entering its final minute, Wanderers striker Rodrick Pierson was played through and coolly took the ball around the dive of the despairing goalkeeper to score.  

Wanderers scored first through Andre Berghaus on 14 minutes.  

A more determined Luca side started the second half, resulting in their best spell of the game and an equalizer on 57 minutes.  

From a corner kick, Nicolas Persico jumped acrobatically, twisting his body mid-air to volley a thunderous shot home.  

With the game tied, Wanderers pushed forward, but Pierson intervened to provide the most dramatic of finishes. There was an explosive start to the second game at Ed Bush when Boca Juniors scored inside the first minute against CML Claymores. With their first attack of the game Yuhan Sutherland let loose with a hopeful strike from distance that caught the CML keeper cold.  

CML striker Steve Lovell hit his second goal of the season, shooting low in the 49th minute for the equalizer.  

Thereafter CML enjoyed the better of the game but couldn’t find a way past a resilient Boca defence and had to settle for a draw.  

The goal CML conceded was their first from the opening four games of the season and is the reason why they have the meanest defence in the league. 

This weekend at the TE McField Annex, Shellaz hosts Luca in the first game, while it’s the Wanderers against the Maples in the second match. At Ed Bush, Old Boys take on Boca and CML face Harry’s.
