IT’S BEEN a whole week since our last report so loads to catch up on, with 25 games played in all competitions.

First up was the 10am kick off on Wednesday last week, which saw Toke City take on Obi Wan Kenobi Nil in the semi-final of the Consolation Shield. Obi Wan had won 2-1 in the corresponding league fixture so City were out for revenge.

The first half ended one apiece, with Jack Thomas scoring from the spot for City, before Mat Angella equalised. The second half saw Thomas score a further three goals, whilst Obi Wan had captain Alex Deevey sent off and missed a penalty, before succumbing to a 6-1 defeat.

 In the second semi-final on Thursday, upset-specialists Aber Kadabra were in unfamiliar territory in their first ever meeting with Goal Diggers. Tom Pullen and Tomm Bjornsen’s goals for Kadabra were not enough as AUFC star, Rian Devlin put them to the sword with all six goals for the Diggers, meaning the game ended 6-2. Goal Diggers and Toke City will meet in the final this Thursday at 6pm on Vicarage Fields.

Wednesday afternoon saw three Bundesliga games, starting with a shock win for Pathetic Athletic against Sex Panthers as Dave Daly bagged two goals in a 3-1 win. Owen Whitmore was named man of the match, as Aber Lions overcame Bassett’s Allsort Army 4-2, and Shakhtar LastNight got their first win of the season 3-1 against FC Beaver.

On Sunday, in the same league Sex Panthers, worse for wear after Varsity celebrations, were beaten for the second time in a week, going down 3-2 to Obi Wan Kenobi Nil. Ryan Jenkins bagged the winner, before Andy Roberts was sent off for Panthers.

Later on Commodore kept up their impressive form with a 2-0 win over Aber Kadabra thanks to a peach from Captain Sam Scott, and Toke City stuffed Shakhtar LastNight 10-3, with Alex Avery the stand-out player. Toke City played once again on Monday against Bassett’s Allsort Army, running out 5-1 winners, with a further two goals for Avery.

In La Liga, there were five games on Wednesday. First up Prestige Worldwide got their sixth win from seven games, beating S.E.S. 6-4, after being reduced to ten men. We Hate Ben’s leading scorer Nathan Lang got their only goal in a 1-1 draw with Abertina, whilst Lewis Williams scored six as FC Hammer demolished Ivory Toast 22-0.

In the clash of the underdogs, Aberconda lead 1-0, before giving away an 85th minute penalty to lose 2-1 to Borussia Teeth. The remaining game was a 6-0 walkover for Goal Diggers as Internazionale Utd couldn’t raise a team.

Four games were scheduled in La Liga on Sunday, starting with Borussia Teeth’s 1-1 draw with Goal Diggers. FC Hammer’s threadbare squad managed a 2-1 victory over Aberconda – though the star player was Erik Olsson, who picked up his fifth man of the match award of the season for Aberconda. Elsewhere Internazionale United forfeit their game with Abertina 6-0, and S.E.S. didn’t turn up to play Ivory Toast, who were awarded their first points of the season.

Monday evening was a washout, but Goal Diggers forfeit their match against Prestige Worldwide, and Internazionale confirmed they wouldn’t be able to fulfil their next two fixtures on Tuesday (vs We Hate Ben) and Thursday (vs FC Hammer).

The Premier League is the league where anyone could beat anyone, and the week’s big result saw captain Jonny Evans grab the winner as FC Inter Yournan went back to the top of the league with a 1-0 win over FC Leave-My-Arcelona. Arcelona player Tony Bickley was booked for diving.

CPD Y Geltaidd were awarded a 6-0 win as Athletico Bil-Banter couldn’t raise a team, and four goals from Joe Bowen helped Notinher Forest beat AC A Little Silhouette of Milan 5-2.

Sunday had four games in the Premier League and AC ALSOM were in action against top-of-the-league FC Inter Yournan. ALSOM remain bottom of the league on one point after a 7-1 defeat, in which Joe McClemont got four for Inter.

Geltaidd prepared well for their fixture on Tuesday against Pornstars with a 3-0 win against Academic Athletic, who aren’t yet out of the title race. Premiership Pornstars also bagged an impressive win against Notinher Forest, coming out 4-1 winners thanks to a Tomos Huws hat-trick, though Huws did miss a penalty in the second-half. The battle of the bottom half of the table saw Aberzaijan striker Sam Pickering score his 10th goal of the season as his side drew 2-2 with Athletico Bil-Banter.

Monday fixture between Academic Athletic and FC Leave-My-Arcelona was postponed for 48 hours and will be played Tuesday evening at 6pm.
