The DHL Sunday Football League’s third week saw the day’s best match between Harry’s and OtisAir Wanderers at Ed Bush with a wonder goal by Alwin Brooks of Wanderers.
The early exchanges were even until after 26 minutes Wanderers produced the move of the match to take the lead when a Ricky Parsons cross landed perfectly for striker Brooks to head home powerfully for his fourth goal of the campaign.
Right on the stroke of halftime Wanderers skipper Rob Moorhead was sent off by the referee for dissent. The sending off gave Harry’s a boost and they started the second-half with much more purpose.
On 60 minutes they were awarded a penalty kick for hand ball which James Smith converted. Then, just a few minutes later came the turning point when Harry’s were awarded a second penalty, again for hand ball but on this occasion Smith’s kick was expertly saved by Wanderers keeper Jan Juschtzak who dived full length to claw the ball away.
The save gave Wanderers a lift and despite being a man down their counterattacks were dangerous, which reaped rewards when Alexander “Junior” Dunn broke forward and with great composure, scored two predatory goals in the final ten minutes to earn his side a 3-1 victory.
The second match at Ed Bush saw Fidel’s Old Boys race into a third minute lead against Luca which set them on their way to a 3-1 victory.
It was striker Nino Dilbert who used his blistering pace to sprint onto a through ball, which he calmly dispatched into the net.
Luca deservedly equalized on 25 minutes through striker Chris Hedley. Four minutes later Dilbert restored his side’s lead with another calm finish to make it 2-1 at the interval.
In the last minute veteran Fidel’s midfielder Darren Stainrod turned the clock back with a fine finish. The only negative for the Old Boys was a red card for Olar Razvan for dissent toward the end.
The solitary match at the TE McField Annex at the weekend saw Boca Juniors come from behind to inflict a 3-2 defeat on the Bounty Hunters.
Striker Alex Almeida put the Bounty Hunters ahead early in the first-half but Boca hit back thanks to a Keamille Mighty hat trick which put his side firmly in control of the game.
Almeida set up a nervy end for Boca when he scored his second of the game but it proved to be just a consolation goal.
In observance of Remembrance Day there are no Sunday League matches this weekend.
