The battle for supremacy in the Stag Beer / East Bank Football Association division one league continued on Sunday last at the Grove Playfield with two matches. In an exciting feature match Kuru Kururu Warriors came from behind on two occasions to defeat Mocha Champs 3-2.
The opening game produced a comfortable 4-0 win for Soesdyke Falcons over Herstelling.
Mocha, yet to register a point in this the second and final round of the league took the lead in the 5th minute through a Sherwin Fordyce goal as they signaled early intentions that they were going to take the fight to their opponents.
Mocha looked a well organized unit whilst the Warriors took some time to get into stride. The Linden Soesdyke Highway based Warriors drew level in the 37th minute with R. Haimnauth who had looked very organised playing left side midfield breached the Mocha defense.
The half time whistle sounded without further changes to the score line. Both sides improved in defensive third but as the game matured the fitness of players was now coming into focus. Mocha took back the lead in the 75th minute through an own goal that came off the boot of Warrior, D. Roberts.
Not content to allow Mocha an easy ride, the Warriors again equalized six minutes later when C. Johnson rocked the nets on the 81st minute. Now sensing that they were the fitter of the two sides, the Warriors upped their offensive game, that pressure saw Mocha scoring against themselves in the 84th minute, Dwayne Layne being the culprit.
In the few remaining minutes, Kuru Kururu Warriors were able to defend their lead as Mocha’s efforts to at least take a share of the points proved futile; the Warriors coming away with full points.
In the opening game, Soesdyke Falcons did not have any trouble in turning back the challenge of upstarts, Herstelling. Goals by Colin Holder (33), Roger Dey (60), Kisey Benson (70) and Ulato Sam in the 80th minute sealed the deal for the Falcons.
