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”

WNCQ18 Eboria qualify, Marida in play-off

WNCQ18 Eboria qualify, Marida in play-off

WEFA World Nations Cup 2018 Qualifiers | CONCAFA

It had come down to the last round of matches. If Eboria won against Latania, they were getting the automatic spot, draw or lose- and Marida could snatch that spot with a win away to Saint Louis.

Eboria won 2-0 at home, thanks to goals from Jake Carter and Roman Baric. Latania’s Mario Lotti hit the post and bar either side of half-time, teenage prodigy Mauro Bellatoni also missed essentially an open goal when it was 1-0. Baric’s strike with eleven minutes remaining meant that what was happening in Saint Louis was irrelevant. With qualification settled, it’s time to sort out the front end of the team- as they will possibly be without a fully fit Matt Murphy for the run up to the finals.

Marida won 3-0, thanks to a brace from Carlos Ricardo and a (now) rare goal from -Manha. Césaro limped off before the interval, which will be of concern for Nova Porto. Félix did not play either, following a minor injury picked up in the previous game.

Marida will now have a two-legged play-off against New Zealand for a place in the World Nations Cup finals next summer.

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”

Adelphia Arsenal maintained their lead at the top of the ESL with a fine display against title-contenders Elverpool. Elverpool haven’t won in five games now and there needs to be a regrouping over the winter break. Diego Martinez opened the scoring, heading in from Bartowski’s corner kick. Twelve minutes after the restart, he doubled the lead with a superb one-two with Henry Thomas. Continue reading “Ending in style! Adelphia vs Elverpool”
