Liberty City FC 0 – 3 Oaklyn United

It was the rivalry match of the week in Tercera when Liberty City FC and Oaklyn United met. Both of this teams have pledge to support CASA and Red Card Cancer to raise donations for Cancer Awareness, a gesture we salute and support. On the field, it was back to business for Oaklyn United, who were coming off big win against Berber in their previous match. Oaklyn took the lead in the 15th minute when Patterson played a ball over the top of the defense to find #2 Hendrickson who slotted it past the keeper. United found a second goal in the 24th minute—this time through #18 Pastore—after recovering the ball with some high pressure. Oaklyn United’s midfield was able to keep control of the game in the second half and the team added a third goal after another long through ball found Hendrickson in behind. He would finish the chance with a chip of the keeper to put the cherry on top. The result keeps Oaklyn United in the tight race for the top spot, which they will look to make their own as they face teams in the bottom half of the table in their next three games. For Liberty City, their next match will be against Roy Kent FC as both teams look to move away from the relegation zone.

Barenjager SC 0 – 6 Fishtown FC

It was a one team show at Gratz Supersite when Fishtown FC picked up where they left off, having demolished of Cracovia last week. It was an early start that may have caught Barenjager sleeping, as they conceded two goals in three minutes to Fishtown’s #77 J. Ely and #11 Gulama. Barenjager seemed to come into themselves a little after that, but the two early goals had Fishtown in a groove as they found a 3rd goal in the 35th minute courtesy of #11 Gulama again. In the second half Fishtown kept their dominance, controlling the tempo in midfield and creating more chances, three of which ended in goals from #16 Carnevale, #37 Rivera, and #19 Assah. The win brings Fishown FC back into playoff spots as they prepare to face Kensington SC Blue Bells inter next game.

Berber United 6 – 3 Bluestar Legends

After losing their undefeated status Berber United were looking to get back on the winning track, but had an inspired Bluestar Legends in front of them to make it a very challenging feat. Berber looked like the better team coming right off the gate, as they scored three goals in the opening 20 minutes to jump to a big lead early. Despite going down big early, the Legends showed some grit and were able to get two back before halftime. The second half was even to begin, but as time went on Bluestar Legends kept pushing up to look for an equalizer, leaving some space in their backline which Berber took advantage off in the dying minutes of the game to score three more while conceding only one. The win keeps Berber United tied for the second place, with a great matchup against first place SJ Gentleman awaiting them next week.

Philly Skyliners looked like the better team early in the game as they jumped into the lead in the 20th minute with a goal from #24 Todd. The Skyliners took full control of the game from there and were able to extend their lead just before the halftime with a goal from #11 Nepal.

FC Delta 5 – 6 FC Sköge

A very entertaining, back and fourth game at Germantown Supersite with goals coming in on all shapes and forms. FC Sköge opened the scoring in the 23rd minute through #13 Weah Jr, which provoked an immediate response from FC Delta with an equalizer in the 27th minute by #97 Nan, followed by a go-ahead goal in the 29th by #0 Barrie. FC Sköge responded in the same way, scoring in the 31st minute through #24 Molina, before Weah Jr scored his second in the 38th, and #18 Alemi joined the party in the 40th minute to give Skoge a two-goal lead going into halftime. The second half featured the same frenetic play as FC Sköge got their fifth goal just five minutes in, with a goal from #22 Harder that looked to seal the win. But FC Delta would not stop fighting and got two fgoals from #97 Nan. It was hat-trick for him as he put his team back in the game. Back in, at least, until Weah Jr himself scored his third of the game to give Sköge back a two goal lead in the 69th minute. FC Delta kept battling and found a bit of luck in the 86th minute when an own goal by Sköge gave them a slimmer of hope. Ultimately, however, they were unable to find an equalizer and FC Sköge walked away with all the points. The result keeps FC Sköge among the top spots in the standings, and they will look to remain there next week when they face Leaders FC.

Washington Square SC (A) 5 at Rapid Daybreak (H) 0 

After an unexpected bye last week, Washington Square SC were back in action against Rapid Daybreak. Both teams were looking for a first win this season. Although both teams desperate for some points, the game was a one-sided affair with Washington enjoying the majority of the possession. With his team in need of a leader, #77 Adam D’Antonio stepped up and played a huge role in his team’s first win of the season, making a ton of run from his left back spot to create a bevy of chances. D’Antonio earned his Man of the Match honors by punishing Rapid’s midfield with his through balls and crosses into the 18-yard box. Still in search of the scoring touch, Rapid remain rooted to the bottom of the table, while the result sees Washington climb out of the relegation zone.



Grapes FC (A) 1 at Aston Phila FC (H) 6 

With Aston Phila FC rolling though their opponents with ease and Grapes FC on a sudden skid, losing their last 2 matches and by large margins it was no surprise that Grapes approached this match with a emphasis on their defensive marking. Unfortunately for the Grapes, no matter how hard they tried, there were unable to prevent Aston Phila from working the ball through their midfield and leaving the defense scrambling to recover. Grapes FC did do well to hold their opponents to just two goals in the first half, but spent the majority of the half chasing the ball. Tired legs showed in the second half and Aston Phila FC took full advantage of their opponents difficulties to close down the ball. With Grapes FC surrendering nearly all 50/50 balls to Aston Phila, Grapes FC allowed another four goals in the last twenty-five minutes, having pulled within one with #6 S. Miller’s goal in the 58th minute. Aston remain perfect on the season with a 5-0-0 record (one of only two teams out of all six divisions to have not lose or draw so far this season), while Grapes have lost their last three matches and are in dire need of a turn around. 

Aston Phila FC: 30′ – Ryan Keller #47 45′ – Shane Evans #11 65′ – Gage Reber #7 71′ – Ryan Silipino #18 74′ – Jimmy Jaime #13 77′ – Ryan Silipino #18 – Man of the Match: Ryan Silipino #18 – Aston Phila FC

Grapes FC: 58′ – Shawn Miller #6


La juve (A) 3 at Mighty Ducks (H) 3 

Coming off a big 6-3 result against Grapes FC for their first win of the season, La Juve would start their match against the unbeaten Mighty Ducks with just nine players at kick off due to traffic complications. The Ducks took advantage ascaptain #6 Nick Green put his team ahead in the tenth minute, only to have La juve equalize a few minutes later. Now playing at full strength, both the Ducks and La Juve shared an even split of possession with both teams creating a lot of chances. Coming out of the half with a 2-2 score, La Juve pressed the Ducks backline and found their third goal from a familiar source, #0 Javier and his hat trick in the 70th minute would give his team a brief lead in the 2nd half only to have it washed away with a brilliant run by #3 C. Gallagher, who would find the equalizer in the 80th minute to keep the Ducks unbeaten. La Juve had a solid chance to escape with another big upset win, but were caught ball watching at the last minute and had to settle for a draw, which will feel more like a loss having come so close to the three points.

La juve: (15’ 39’ 70’ #0 Javier) MotM: La juve #0 Javier

Ducks:( 10’ 25’ #6 green)(80’ #3 C Gallagher)


Still Processing FC (A) 0 at Oaklyn United Pride (H) 4 

Both Still Processing FC and Oaklyn United Pride were winless in their last two matches heading into their week five showdown. Having seen their opponents lose heavily the week before, Oaklyn looked to take advantage with both #99 Amari and #24 each getting a brace before the half hour mark to put Oaklyn ahead 4-0 early on. Still Processing were never able to recover from that fifteen minute barrage and played cautiously for the rest of the match, clearing balls out of the back to stop Oaklyn’s advances. With the four goal cushion, Oaklyn sat back and played out of the back more often to eat up time with their possession and earn their second shut out of the season. With half the season nearly complete and having struggled to find scoring form, Still Processing FC find themselves in tenth place and dangerously close to relegation.

Oaklyn (99) Amari 14’, 10’ (24) Sills 16’, 24’ 


Inter Phila (A) 1 at Mark Wahlberg’s Cousins FC (H) 1 

The week five match between two of Quinto’s most physical teams, Inter Phila and Mark Wahlbergs Cousins FC, played out as expected with a lot of hard 50/50 challenges, a tactical midfield battle for possession, and a number of big chances that were well defended by both sides. Cousins were gifted a PK early on to the dismay of Inter, who pleaded for a card for simulation but were turned away by the match official. Inter’s keeper made the debate moot when he guessed correctly to deny Cousins and keep the game scoreless. Heading into the end of the first half, #9 Toma would find himself on the receiving end of a well placed pass that he took into space for a clean finish and a 1-0 lead. Cousins FC would battle back and snag the tying goal midway through the second half from a well placed cross and clinical finish from #15 Brennan. With the matched locked at 1-1, both teams would hold the ball and look to create chances but neither found the final pass or finish. Inter came the closest towards the end of the game, but both teams were forced to settle for a draw in a very hard fought match.

Inter Philadelphia – #9 Marcel (43’) MoM: Inter Philadelphia – #9 Marcel

Mark Wahlberg’s Cousins – #15 Brennan (65’) 




Green Street Hooligans (A) 5 at Philadelphia Strikers (H) 1

Hoping to brush off their poor performance last week, which saw the Hooligans suffer their first lost of the season, Green Street put on a show to win 5-1 against the Philadelphia Strikers. Looking well rested, the Hooligans jumped out to an early 3-0 lead before the Strikers managed to pull one back in the 23rd minute. The game would go quiet up until the around the 70th minute when GSH started to really control a lot of the possession. They put the game away when Deleo and Argyris capped off braces in the 74th and 77nd minute to guide their team to their fourth win of the season. They remain just one point shy of first place Philly Athletic Club. The Strikers had a pretty decent showing last week in their draw against FC BTC but were unable to find any real cohesion in this match and will need to make some adjustments to shore up their defense.

– Hooligans – Argyris – (5m) (74m) Deleo – (9m) (77m) Egiestine – (20m) MOTM – Deleo- Hooligans


Dyslexia Untied (A) 2 at Bench Mob FC 3 (H)

After their surprise upset against Green Street last week, Bench Mob FC set out to keep the momentum going in their match against Dyslexia Untied, who themselves celebrated their first win of the season last week. Untied played well and nearly made it out of the first half with a 2-0 lead, but fell foul of what would be the first of three goals from Bench Mob’s #21 Potts, less than a minute after Dyslexia went up 2-0. After securing the tying goal in the 77nd minute, Potts would break through the defense of Dyslexia yet again and grab the game winner just a few minutes later to secure back to back wins for Bench Mob FC.

FC BTC (A) 4 at Boys Do Cry FC (H) 3 

The tears were flowing for Boys Do Cry this week as they suffered another heart breaking loss. BDC must having thought it was their day as they came from behind to take a 3-2 lead over FC BTC, having gone in 2-0 down at the half. BTC’s half time lead lasted less than fifteen minutes into the second half, as BDC awarded a PK. #12 Roche tied the game and snagged his brace eight minutes after converting the PK to give his team the 3-2 lead. Their jubilation did not, last, sadly. Not to be outshone, FC BTC’s own #12 got in on the action on the 75th and 78th minute, scoring the tying and the go-ahead goal. FC BTC held off a barrage of shots from the Boys, who really pushed for the tying goal in the final minutes, but not even the great Stephen Tice was able to knock in one last goal. FC BTC battled back, showing great heart and determination, and got themselves a well earned victory that keeps them in the top three of the table.

– Goals- Boys Do Cry: #12 Roche 52′ 60′, #91 Colella 54′

Kensington SC BIG C.A.T.S (A) 0 at Philly Athletic Club (H) 2 

After only allowing one goal through four games, Philly Athletic Club went on the attack against Kensington SC, who were still looking for their first goal of the season. With midfield possession the primary goal for Philly, Kensington struggled to move the ball forward and enjoyed the majority of their possession in their own defensive half. The revamped defense for Kensington stronger than previous matches this season, as both center backs communicated clearly and held a high line most of the match. Philly did eventually find a way to break through, however, scoring late in the first and at the very end of the second half. Kensington will take heart from their performance this week but need to find some goals. Philly keep up their impressive run and their place atop of the standings.

Telle Bouche FC (A) 1 at Rapid Nightfall (H) 1 

Telle Bouche FC headed into their week five match against Rapid Daybreak winless in their last two, having not scored a goal since their 2-1 win over S.O.B Athletic in week two. Rapid, on the other hand, have found a win after each draw so far this season. After going up 1-0 in the 20th minute, it appeared the trend would continue, having suffered a draw ast week against UCFC. Rapid’s lead wouldnt last long, though, as Telle Bouche pulled the game level, with #3 Daisey scoring a beauty of a goal just five short minutes later. The second half played out with both teams creating chances but failing to find that final pass or the quality finish to take the advantage. In the end, neither team could find a way to break down their opponents formation and had to settle for a hard fought 1-1 draw.

– Rapid Nightfall FC: #6 Andrew 20′ / Telle Boucher FC: #3 DAISEY 25
