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
ADELPHIA ARSENAL 2-2 MAYONA CITY
FC CORATIA 2-0 OLYMPIANS
DERBENHAM CITY 1-0 ROCHESTER UNITED
HALLAS HOTSPURS 2-4 TOTTERDAM SV
LSG 1-0 WHA
