Old Boys too sprightly for CML

The most eye-catching result in the Heineken Sunday League’s Week 8 fixtures was Fidel’s Old Boys’ unexpected and fully deserved victory against CML Claymores. 

Claymores had an unbeaten record going into the match at Ed Bush and looked set to continue that run when Graham Blyth struck in the 29th minute.  

Old Boys responded when Lucaino Deriso hit an equalizer in the 60th minute and Niall Hanna wrapped it up for a 2-1 victory near the end. 

Then Harry’s took on Boca Juniors at Ed Bush. Harry’s scored on eight minutes through Jas Muratagic and two more quickly followed from Jono Firstbrook and Kris Pearson.  

Boca struggled to recover from conceding so early and fell further behind when Harry’s predatory striker Floyd “Irons” McKenzie completed the scoring 10 minutes from time with his eighth of the season for a comfortable 4-0 win. 

In the first game at the TE McField Annex, OtisAir Wanderers beat Shellaz 3-0.  

Wanderers’ top scorer Peter Rose scored impressively on 16 minutes. Rodrick Pierson broke the offside trap to sprint through for their second and ten minutes from time Rose was brought down inside the Shellaz box.  

Rose took the penalty but his kick hit the woodwork before teammate Ben Silveria smashed the rebound in. 

Atletico Luca hosted Maples Revolution in the next Annex game. Maples midfielder Jon Pump opened the scoring when he arrived late at the back post. Then, on the very next attack, Maples striker Jack Leeland scored his fourth goal of the campaign.  

In the second half, Luca tried to force their way back into the game but were repelled by a stubborn Maples defense. That is until five minutes from time when Luca striker Kodel Thompson scored his fifth so far. Maples held on for a 2-1 win.  

This weekend at the TE McField Annex, Maples Revolution host Harry’s in the first game before Old Boys play Shellaz.  

At Ed Bush Atletico Luca take on Boca and CML face the Wanderers.
