And so the winter break cometh. Round 17 saw the 2016 finale of ESL action.
ADELPHIA ARSENAL 2
(Martinez 41, 57)
Adelphia Arsenal maintained their lead at the top of the ESL with a fine display against title-contenders Elverpool. Elverpool haven’t won in five games now and there needs to be a regrouping over the winter break. Diego Martinez opened the scoring, heading in from Bartowski’s corner kick. Twelve minutes after the restart, he doubled the lead with a superb one-two with Henry Thomas.
Elverpool had good moments, with Aaron Johnson and Blake Solo going close, but when it’s not going for you- it’s not going for you. Raj Vadra will have to motivate his men for a sustained run after the holidays.
For Adelphia Arsenal, they finished 2016 as the they begun it, playing excellent football and exciting their fans. Manager Frank Lebeau will be very pleased – WINTER CHAMPIONS!
