ESL Round 32: ALFA hold Adelphia, gap at top to four points

ESL Round 32: ALFA hold Adelphia, gap at top to four points

Eborian Super League  | 2017-18 | Round 32

ADELPHIA ARSENAL  1-1  ALFA

Defending champions ALFA were not willing to perform the guard of honour for Adelphia Arsenal, and it showed in a stubborn and persistive performance at the DIY Depot Arena. Once again Roman Baric struck early to give ALFA the lead, but they failed to hang on to that lead- sitting back and trying to block the borders. Adelphia are masters of the counter-strategy, but also can adapt to circumstances. When nothing else was working, skipper Jerome Mowabé played a nifty one-two with Jordan Wilcox and curled the ball into the far bottom corner of the net.

FC CORATIA  2-2  ELVERPOOL

Elverpool will feel that they dropped points away to Coratia, but to the neutral eye, a draw was a fair result. Emerson Dosa and Jimmy Langford’s goals were cancelled out by fine strikes from Shannon Davis and Hermosillio.

OAKLAND FOREST  1-2  NEW JORG UNITED

New Jorg United kept up their claim for the title, with a goal apiece from Michael Odonkwa and Aron Mulder. Boorgarde had equalised for Oakland, whilst Peter Aguba missed  a penalty late on. Even so, United looked fairly safe in this outing. With two to play, they can still claim the title.

AMORGAN CELTIC  1-2  ANGEL FC

Amorgan Celtic gave up two late goals, giving Angel an outside hope of claiming the championship. Roberto De Melo cancelled out Eduardo’s 15th of the season, before captain Marcelo Santos gave one more captain’s winner to the cause.

HALLAS HOTSPURS  1-0  HARTEFORD HAMMERS

Hallas went one step further in confirming their survival in this vital six-pointer against the Harteford Hammers.  Eddie Decker’s late strike pushed Hallas four points safe.

Other results:
Melborg FC  2-1 LSG
Pottsburgh Athletic 1-0 Olympians
San Andreas Strikers 3-2 Rochester United
Seafax Strikers 1-1 Totterdam SV

The Table:
Adelphia’s lead is cut to four points, though they can still clinch the title next week.
Coratia and San Andreas moved up, whilst Amorgan moved down.

Seafax moved out of the the bottom three and hold their own destiny in their final two games. Rochester will play Harteford in the final round, we await to see if that’s going to be significant.

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!

Line-ups:

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
