Casa Soccer League round-up week 3

First of all, congratulations to all the Casa Soccer League goalies who were better than the pros in the Union game. If you played, you were better. Trust me.

Primera

Philly Soccer Firm and Drinker’s Pub rounded out their records at an even 1-1-1 with a tie Saturday morning. Tom Gritter scored and remains the only Firm player to notch a goal thus far. AC Milan and Krakovia remain undefeated after a 1-1 tie. The two goals were the first allowed by either team this year. Grey Lodge remains undefeated at the top of the table but it wasn’t quite as easy as last week. Their 1-0 squeaker over Penn United keeps United at the bottom of the table. Joining Penn in the search for that elusive first win, Cannons dropped points to Philly United in a 2-0 loss. Philly leaps into a tie for fourth with the win.

Segunda

Nittany United put seven past Sporting Philly in a rough 7-2 victory. Four yellows were issued in the match and Sam Huntingdon picked up a hat trick when he slotted in the last goal. Memphis Taproom scored their first goals of the year in a 2-2 tie with Philly Athletic. Memphis was listed as the Away team for the first time this year, leading many CASA pundits to wonder about their home form. Memphis is listed as the away team for next week’s matchup with Sporting Philly before heading home to play Skulls. NewPhillyUnited kept the undefeated dream alive with a 1-0 shutout over Steagles while the rest of Segunda took a Union-related week off (Philadelphia Union, not player’s union… yet).

Tercera

Mt. Laurel FC dropped from the top spot in Tercera despite a 2-1 win over Bayern Makefield. Quaker City’s 2 goal shutout of Loose Cannons allowed them to leapfrog Mt. Laurel on goal differential. Makefield continues a brutally tough stretch of the season when they travel to QC next weekend. Revolution 76 snuck by FC Spartans by the slimmest of margins with a 1-0 win. Rev76 is in third and needs to keep winning if they want to stop the Twin Titans of Tercera from running away with the division. That’s right, the CASA report recommends winning. It’s a secret strategy so keep it to yourself, all seven readers. Tri-County continued its winning ways with a 3-1 triumph over Sons of Ben Independence. Luckily the loss didn’t depress SOB, as they showed up in force in the endzone at the Linc to catch Sebastian Le Toux (Vive Le Toux!) putting his name in the Philadelphia Union record books.

Abierto

A barrage of goals in Abierto this weekend, with two teams bulging the ol’ onion bag eight times. Spruce Goose shut out FC Kilbanes 8-0 while Revolving United got an 8-1 win over Sons of Ben Union. AOH 61 grabbed a 4-0 shutout over Sidewinders, to keep a sterling defensive record of on goal allowed all season, no small feat in such a high-offense division. Sweet Lucy’s FC also held fast, beating The Incredibles 3-0. Sons of Ben Zolo and Pennypack Park Rangers tied at 1-1 to round out the weekend of games.

  1. FC Kilbanes did not “shut out Spruce Goose” 8-0… Spruce Goose shut out FC Kilbanes… It was a hard fought game that we deserve proper credit for.

  2. Definitely. It’s fixed. Thanks for the heads-up!
