The Street 6-a-side league looks like it´s going to go to the wire, even at this early stage of the season. With just 2 games played, none of our teams has a 100% record, and only one team has failed to register a point. It suggests that plenty of teams will fancy their chances of becoming our inaugural Champions.
The Mighty Morphin Flower Arrangers and Butleigh Dynamos share the lead at the top of the table after hard-earned wins. MMFA edged to a dramatic 4-3 defeat of Victoria Sports, despite conceding 2 early goals. They showed their resilience to bounce back with 2 quick-fire goals of their own, and despite Victoria twice hitting the post, they eventually held on for victory. Craig Chant deserves special mention for a tireless display up-front for MMFA.
Robbie Growdon snatched the only goal of a tight game as Butleigh Dynamos overcame last week´s league leaders, Bayern Neverlosing. After a goalless first half, Sam Edmondson expertly marshalled the Butleigh defence and contributed several telling interceptions in maintaining a clean sheet.
Green Army squandered their chance to top the table after falling to a disappointing 4-2 defeat by Surfers Yard United. Green Army enjoyed decent possession but wasted a host of chances, while Surfers were clinical in attack, with Harry Tabor and Sonni Lovell each netting twice. Special mention must go to Surfers keeper Nathan Phillips for his Man of The Match display with a string of fine saves.
WABS u16s got off the mark with a narrow 1-0 defeat of OMG FC. Both teams played some neat football (especially WABS´ Cory Bobbett) and were solid in defence, but both lacked a penetrative edge, and it took a speculative long-range effort to break the deadlock.
