ESL Round 33: Adelphia clinch title with win, all tight at the bottom

ESL Round 33: Adelphia clinch title with win, all tight at the bottom

Eborian Super League | 2017-18 Season | Round 33

Adelphia Arsenal wrapped up the title in the penultimate round, having an unbratable four point lead at the top. Meanwhile, the race to the bottom, or escape out of it heated up. It will be all to play for next Saturday.


In the late Saturday night Kickoff, Adelphia looked unusually nervous in front of the prime time cameras. Fernando Marquez provided a 9th minute lead, with a brilliant header, but Hallas always looked like scoring. Hallas indeed got their equaliser on 49 minutes, when Peter Harvey snuck in at the far post to pop the ball in. Adelphia took back the lead, 26 mins before the end, when a neat 1-2 between Wilcox and Thomas enable the former to set up Luis Velasquez for a low tidy finish. Adelphia had done enough this year! All wrapped up with one game to go, taking in the celebrations in front of their home fans. Continue reading “ESL Round 33: Adelphia clinch title with win, all tight at the bottom”

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


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.


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.


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 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 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.

Eborian Super League 2017-18 | Round 31

Adelphia Arsenal sharpened their grip on the ESL championship with a 4-0 win over hosts Melborg. New jorg United , Elverpool, Angel and ALFA all won too.


A Henry Thomas hat-trick saw Adelphia ease past Melborg and keep their six point lead at the top intact. Luis Velasquez added a final insult with the fourth in the 90th minute. HC Frank Lebeau sang his team’s praises adding ” We have really picked up the pace and intensity as we close in on what we feel is within our grasp. We have been clinical today, in defence and in attack, I am so proud of their hard work and mental toughness” Continue reading “ESL Round 31: Adelphia hone in on trophy”

3CL: Real and Nova to meet for the trophy

CONCAFA Champions League | 2017-18 | Semi-finals


Nova Porto bested New Jorg United in the first semi-final on Tuesday, following a 2-2 draw in New Jorg. United led 1-0 and 2-1, giving them some hope, but they could not stop Nova Porto from levelling and taking a 5-3 aggregate lead, plus an away goals advantage.

Nova shut up shop for the last twenty minutes, as the hosts, needing three more goals to go through failed to trouble the scorekeepers again.


The ‘FSN’  show was too much for the Latanian giants’ defence, scoring two away goals to put the tie beyond any doubt. Juve scored a late consolation, knowing they will have to be a lot stronger in defence next time around.

Real and Nova will meet in the final next month. An all-Maridian affair.

ESL round 30: Elverpool harm NJ’s title hopes as the Arsenal keep winning

Eborian Super League | 2017-18 |Round 30

New Jorg United’s second defeat in three rounds leaves them  six points off the pace in the race for the ESL Title. Adelphia maintained their good form, whilst at the other end Pottsburgh, Hallas and Seafax all picked up a point each.


Chris Sulley was shown a straight red card in the ninth minute, for an awful tackle on Emerson Dosa. Despite this, United took the lead before the break, with a Peter Aguba special, breaking past the Elverpool line to slot home.

Elverpool regathered for a second period against 10-men, Defet. nder Chris Tallé headed in from a corner, to equalise.  With twenty minutes left, Axel Heinz took over and produced two fantastic strikes to leave the United fans looking in disbelief at their title hopes. ‘Pool maintained their six point advantage over ALFA for the final 3CL place.


Chris Bartowski gave the visitors the lead, in a hard-fought battle in San Andreas. The Spirit had plenty of their namesake, but couldn’t find the elusive equaliser, Balasz Nagy coming closest. In stoppage time, Luis Velasquez finished off a classic Adelphia counter attack, involving Henry Thomas, Jordan Wilcox and Velasquez.


ALFA’s poor home form continued against struggling Hallas. Roman Baric struck an individualistic goal from nowhere in the 7th minute. ALFA could not produce a second, and it cost them. Hallas levelled on 50 minutes through Emerson Alaves. Paul Leek was sent off with 17 minutes remaining, but the hosts couldn’t produce anything worthy of breaking the deadlock. A point each, no more than either deserved.

Other results:

LSG  0-2  Angel FC
Amorgan Celtic 3-1 FC Coratia
Olympians  4-2  Harteford Hammers
Rochester  1-2  Melborg FC
Oakland Forest 1-1 Seafax Strikers
Pottsburgh  1-1  Totterdam SV




Copa Eboria: Adelphia and Olympians book their places in the final

COPA EBORIA | Semi-Finals | 2017-18



It was a long day for FC Coratia, playing their first ever professional cup semi-final. They were hammered by the Adelphia front-line, led by Henry Thomas and Luis Velasquez, with Wilcox and Marquez in support. 3-0 down at half-time, they restored some pride by pulling one back – courtesy of a Luis Costanzo header. It was not going to be enough, however. Adelphia scored two more, to put the tie beyond any doubt.

Velasquez and Wilcox both scored two each, with the other coming from substitute Lilian Diané.  Adelphia  outpowered their ESL rivals to book another final slot.



League Cup winners Olympians went ahead early in a bad-tempered affair. Aslan Burakgazi found Nacho Vargas in acres of room at the back post for an easy header. Amorgan fought back- literally. There were some awful tackles in the rainy semi-final tie. Olympians lost midfield aces Tiago Alves and Paulo Conceicao within fifteen minutes of eachother, with Amorgan’s offenders only receiving bookings. Amorgan scored either side of half-time, with Ashley Banks setting up Eduardo. Eduardo returned the favour for Banks’ first ever cup goal.

Olympians limped through and battled to the end, equalising with seconds left. A hopeful ball into the box by Williams was deftly controlled by Bret Hardy and finished into the corner. During the extra period, Amorgan hit the woodwork twice, whilst Aslan Burakgazi followed Hardy’s flick on and buried the ball past the helpless Wagner in goal.



This final may be the chance for either team to complete a ‘double’ – Olympians can complete a domestic cup double (Copa Eboria and League Cup), whilst Adelphia Arsenal, if they do win the ESL can win the domestic League and Cup double.

CONCAFA Champions League | Last Sixteen | 2nd Legs

Last night’s last sixteen second leg games saw greatness, goals and a little more controversy.

The Nova Porto – AS Milazio match was an open affair. With Milazio needing a lot to advance- they went for it. They were two up after twenty eight minutes, with Cozza and Boschkamp scoring, only to concede an own goal just before half-time. When Cozza bagged his second, the away fans were singing, as 3-3 on agg, Milazio would go through on away goals. With 20 minutes left, Xavi Ramires crossed for Diego Martinez to head the hosts through to the next round, breaking Milazio’s hearts. Bosch missed a chance at the death to take them through.

Independiente lost 1-0 to Centurions in the return game, but went through 3-2 on aggregate. They never really looked like going out and were surprised to lose this game.

Following last week’s controversial first leg, it reigned in Adelphia, where Giapoli defeated the reigning champions Adelphia Arsenal 4-2 on agg. Adelphia coach Frank Lebeau and several players will be suspended for the opening games next season- Henry Thomas, Eddie James and Ryan Givens all picked up two yellow cards over the two games.

In a carbon-copy of the first game, New Jorg United cruised over Club Panteras 2-0. Peter Aguba and Aron Mulder doubled the advantage, never looking in any danger. The next round will provide a bigger question for this team.

Rosano Centrale had a pedestrian 1-1 draw with Galencia. The Latanians had made easy work of this two weeks ago, Gala had no real answers and seemed to get more out of the game than they deserved.

In the tie of the round, ESL Champions ALFA were beating Real Mardis in Mardis 3-1 for 90 minutes (4-4 on agg). After trailing 1-0 after only four minutes to a dazzling Suárez goal, they came back. On the half-hour, Roman Baric broke through and slotted home. Second half stunners from Drew Campbell and Laurent Féyembé took the game to extra time. In extra-time, Suárez struck from the spot, following Abou Diarra’s red card for a foul on Félix in the box. ALFA went down to 9 men, when Danny Marshall received a straight red for his lunging sliding tackle on Antonio Cruz. They did so well to take it to extra-time but then fell apart and lost 5-4 on aggregate.

Juvenese hammered RC Santos 3-0, to win 5-2 on aggregate.  Lopes, Soares and Estevez completed the rout. Santos had trailed on away goals and lacked the bite up front to make a challenge.

Angel FC drew 1-1 with last year’s losing finalists- Club Tigres, to knock them out on away goals rule. Tracy Jackson gave them a first half lead that gave them the big advantage. Needing two goals to advance, Tigres could only manage one, with veteran Carlos Pinto stabbing home a penalty kick late on.

CONCAFA Champions League | Last Sixteen | 1st Legs

Last night’s last sixteen first leg games saw greatness, goals and controversy. CONCAFA have already stated that they will ask Frank Lebeau to explain his comments and actions towards the referee.

The Nova Porto – AS Milazio match was keenly fought, with Milazio’s new strike-force firing a blank in a 2-0 defeat at home. Nova’s goals came from Césaro and Diego Martinez, meaning they have a great advantage to take back home. Milazio have to score at least three to advance. Should be an attacking second leg.

Independiente scored three away goals in a 3-1 demolition of Centurions. Veteran striker Juan Pablo Sisco nabbed a brace.

The controversy reigned in Giapolis, where Giapoli defeated the reigning champions Adelphia Arsenal 2-0. Adelphia coach Frank Lebeau angrily confronted the referee at half-time and full-time, stating he felt the referee was conned by ‘dives and deceptions’, the visitors were denied a clear penalty in the second half and several players were booked, two of which were debatable.

New Jorg United had an easier time in Panduras, beating Club Panteras 2-0. Peter Aguba and Sasa Lucic struck crucial away goals, to take back with them in two weeks time.

Rosano Centrale also won 2-0, away to Aguadorian side Galencia. The Latanians made easy work of this tie, with the hosts seemingly trying not to concede at home (and failing).

In the tie of the round, ESL Champions ALFA hosted favourites Real Mardis at the ALFA Arena, they kept the hosts level at half-time 1-1, but conceded two second half goals to trail 3-1. The Maridian Champions will be without striker Nelinho for the second leg, following a hamstring problem that will keep him sidelined for several weeks.

Juvenese and RC Santos drew 2-2 in Marida, with away goals coming from Sandro Ramires and Gianni Grassi, to put the Bianconeri firmly in charge.

Angel FC also drew 2-2, away to last year’s losing finalists- Club Tigres. Alex van der Kamp and Roberto de Melo saved the Eborian side’s blushes. They will be missing Frederic Kané for the return game- as he misses at least a few weeks with ankle trouble. Several other players are ‘bruised’ from a very physical encounter.
