Adelphia Arsenal overtook New Jorg United following a 1-0 victory in the top of the table clash at the DIY Depot Arena on Saturday night. The result also ended New Jorg’s domestic unbeaten run this season.

Captain Daniel Ayandele struck in injury time at the end of the first half, with the Centre Back volleying in from a half cleared corner. Aron Mulder went closest for the visitors, who were missing two regulars through injury and suspension. The result leaves Adelphia on top of the table, with one round to go before the Christmas break.

Adelphia HC Frank Lebeau said that it was a stellar performance from his side, adding  “we penetrated their lines at the right times, everything went to plan today. I am very pleased with the team shape, the passion and determination tonight.”

Bautista: “We need  to be more consistent”

Bautista: “We need to be more consistent”

Angel FC Head Coach Marcos Antonio Bautista has bemoaned his teams inconsistency again, following the teams loss in a Landor Derby to LSG 1-0 this weekend.

“I don’t understand how we seem to pick and choose when we play. We cannot win trophies if we are not playing in a rhythm. We need to be more consistent.”

He added “I know this was a derby match, but that is no excuse that I will use. We knew the opposition and knew the gameplan. We did not execute.”

Angel have won nine of their fifteen games this season, but have lost six games- which appear to be a lot for this stage of the season for a top team.

Angel and ALFA disappoint, Olympians goalless

ESL 2018-19 | Round 13

Angel’s Head Coach Marcos Antonio Bautista expressed his disappointment at dropping all three points away at Coratia this afternoon. The team rested a few players, following the fantastic midweek win away to AS Milazio in the CONCAFA Champions League and did not show the shape and determination of the preceding days.

MAB said to reporters “To show up like this for a game disappoints me, we had the players, we have a squad on paper that can compete. We did not prove this today and I am dismayed. I need players to put on the shirt and try their best. I am not sure I can say this for all who went out there. I take responsibility for this showing and the player will have to look at themselves, individually.”  He added ” We will fight on, for the right to be champions, I will not rest”.

ALFA lost a close one, 3-2 at home to rivals Elverpool. The team led 2-1, thanks to goals from Roman Baric and Danny Marshall, but conceded a late brace to Axel Heinz. Elverpool’s JPL was delighted with the win, whilst ALFA’s Picardo was left angry at the defensive shape at the death and vowed to work on that for next time.

Olympians, meanwhile, held out for a goalless draw at home to San Andreas, perhaps tired from the Copa Unidad(e) experience on Thursday evening. They remain in fourth place- which bearing in mind their start to the season (0-0-3) is remarkable.

ESL Matchday One | Season 2018-19

The first weekend of ESL action has now been completed, with three new teams- but all 18 having a new look, with new players and kits, coaching staff. Let’s rundown the first 9 matches of the 2018-19 campaign:

AMORGAN CELTIC  2-2  NEW JORG UNITED

Amorgan began the season with a well-earned draw with New Jorg, although Brian Mason’s side will be disappointed to have conceded a 94th minute equaliser, courtesy of Peter Aguba.

Amorgan led twice, thanks to goals from new recruit Zack Freeman (what a difference a year makes, huh?). Aaron Mulder negated the opening strike, but NJ never looked on top form, Amorgan harassed and hurried them at every corner. A great start.

ALFA  0-1  MELBORG FC

ALFA started the new era, with Head Coach Carlo Picardo and Striker Mario Lotti with a loss at home to Melborg.

Debutant Vitor Ramires scored the only goal of the game, eight minutes after half-time. David Wilkerson’s squad looked much sharper than last year.

ELVERPOOL  4-0  SAN ANDREAS SPIRIT

Elverpool kicked off their campaign with a dominating victory over San Andreas. Goals from Aaron Johnson (2), Axel Heinz and Scott Bradshaw saw the reds ease past the Spirit, leaving the feeling that there is much left in the tank.

ANGEL  1-0  OAKLAND FOREST

Angel’s veteran playmakeer Alex van der Kamp saved the home team’s bushes with a late direct free kick goal. Oakland had pressed and marked Angel out of the game- with a very workman like performance. Marcos Antonio Bautista’s men’s class showed through in the end. Debutant Christian Makamalé looked sharp up front, but was double-team marked
