Elverpool and New Jorg finish the year with draws: Share first place

Elverpool and New Jorg finish the year with draws: Share first place

ESL | Elverpool & New Jorg United

The season stops for the winter break with a three way tie at the top, with everyone having played 17 games. Goal difference separates Elverpool with New Jorg United and Adelphia Arsenal.

Elverpool could only draw 1-1 with a resurging Olympians side, whilst New Jorg also drew 1-1 with another contender – Angel FC.

Elverpool are the Christmas Champions on goal difference, but with such a tight situation at the top of the table, it doesn’t feel like a defining omen for the next 17 games, beginning in January.

Tuesday December 5-
Adelphia 2-1 FC Coratia (match brought forward)

Friday December 8-
Olympians 1-1 Elverpool

Ten games in : Progress Reports

ESL 2017-18 | After ten rounds

We’re almost a third of the way through the season, so it’s a good marker point to check in on the teams and see who has done well or performed terribly after ten games.

Adelphia Arsenal | Position: 1st 

Reclaimed top spot with a 1-0 win over Angel. Have looked pretty solid, with new recruits settling in pretty well. Luis Velasquez has eight goals in 9 games, looking like the man Adelphia thought he would be. Continue reading “Ten games in : Progress Reports”

3CL: Adelphia do good, ALFA are humiliated

3CL: Adelphia do good, ALFA are humiliated

CONCAFA Champions League | Group Stages | 2017-18

We’re now halfway through the group stages of the 3CL, so it’s a good time to take stock of the progress of the ESL teams and the other big teams.

In group A, Juvenese have shown to be solid, even though they managed a 0-0 draw away to Centurions. Two wins before that (@ Angel 3-2, vs Stade Lenseille 3-0). ESL’s Angel FC have won their other two games after getting off to a losing start at home to Juvenese. They seem quite assured of making their way through to the last 16.  Continue reading “3CL: Adelphia do good, ALFA are humiliated”

ALFA began their title defence terribly, with a dismal 3-0 defeat to rivals New Jorg United. There had been an even flow of chances in the first half, until a rash decision to come out by ‘keeper David Busch resulted in a foul on Peter Aguba- a foul, a sending off and a penalty, converted by Aguba). With the extra man, New Jorg looked very comfortable in the second half. Aron Mulder made it two on 64 minutes. Continue reading “Opening night 2017-18: from champs to chumps?”

IC3: Eboria claim third place over Spain (PKs)

IC3: Eboria claim third place over Spain (PKs)

WEFA Intercontinental Champions Cup | 3rd Place Play-off | Lisbon

Spain_150px  SPAIN  1-1  EBORIA 150px-Flag_of_the_EborianRepublic2015
(EBORIA 4-2 on PKs)

Eboria claimed a historic third-place in the IC3, beating the co-hosts Spain in the play-off for third place on penalties. It was 1-1 after normal time, after extra time, so the deadlock was decided via shoot-out. Matt Murphy scored an equaliser in the second half, following Spain leading through Alvaro Morata, again.

After a scoreless extra-time period, in which the hosts were down to ten-men after a reckless Sergio Ramos foul earned him a straight red, Eboria held their nerve in the shoot out. They scored all four penalties, whilst the Spanish missed two. Sol Harrison scored the decisive kick.

Tony Jones’s men have proved themselves worthy of entry to this tournament, with two wins, two draws and 1 defeat in the five games, with a bonus of the penalty shoot out win tonight.

Although all eyes will rightly be on the final between Chile and Portugal, Eboria will have given notice that they are for real, with next summer’s World Nations Cup a priority.

Eboria: Ferguson, Holland, Ayandele (C), Givens, Cooper, Mills, Harrison, Langford (sub Murphy), Wilcox (sub Carter), Marshall (sub Baric), Thomas.

Eboria’s run in the IC3 came to an end in Barcelona tonight. Chile, led by Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal were just too strong for Eboria on the night. Eboria had been without playmaker Matt Murphy and lost Buckhalter and Myers to injuries before half-time.  Continue reading “IC3: Chile too hot for Eboria in Semi-final”

[ Álvarez 6]

Adelphia Arsenal got revenge for last season’s cup final defeat to Juvenese, with a frantic opening to this year’s final. Left Back Ryan Givens broke free down the left and was tripped inside the box by Hugo Alaves, resulting in a penalty kick. Henry Thomas stepped up and broke the deadlock in the fourth minute. Just two minutes later, perhaps mirroring last Sunday’s switch-off against Elverpool, Adelphia dropped their intensity for a moment and Tigres capitalised. A good move involving Pizano and Gillet set up Dario Álvarez for the equaliser, a low crafted shot past a helpless Alberto in goal.

Both teams traded chances in a very open first half; Gillet and Pizano going close for Tigres, Thomas, Mowabé and Bartowski going close for Adelphia. The Arsenal converted a chance out of seemingly nothing after two successive over-hit crosses had opened up the Tigres penalty area. Luis Cesar popped the ball back in and Diego Martinez, playing his very last game for Adelphia, reacted first and slotted the ball past Fredi.

Tigres pressed heavily for the equaliser in the second half, but found Adelphia’s two lines of four impossible to fully break down. Thomas and substitute Jordan Wilcox missed chances to put the tie beyond any doubt with counter-attacks. Adelphia’s Captain Jerome Mowabé kissed the turf in joy at the final whistle- Adelphia, for the second time in their 21 year history, were CONCAFA Club Champions!


Adelphia (4-2-2-2): Alberto, Givens, Robinson, Ayandele, Cooper, Mowabé (c), Bartowski (sub James 73), Luis, Cesar (sub Wilcox 45). Gbaja-Muamba, Thomas, Martinez (sub Velasquez 88).

Tigres (4-4-2): Fredi, Serginho (sub Bonaventura 49), Alaves, Jorginho (c), De la Torres Nillson, Dufueñtas (sub Diaz 80), Pizano, Álvarez, Sota (sub Vargas 64), Gillet
