Mocha Champs upset Agricola Red Triangle 5-2 when the two teams collided on Sunday afternoon last at the Grove Playfield as the STAG sponsored East Bank Football Association (EBFA) Senior League continued.
The opening match did not come off as Diamond United gifted a walk over to Soesdyke Falcons which moves into the third place on 9 points with their third win, trailing leaders Grove Hi Tech (12) and Herstelling Raiders (10), all completing five matches in the seven team / one round league.
By the end of the first half, Mocha was well on their way to upsetting Agricola with three goals already in the back of the nets. Tyshawn Forris, after the first half hour saw neck and neck exchanges, broke the deadlock in the 35th minute.
This was the exact opening that the Mocha boys were waiting for as one minute after taking the lead; it was doubled, Forris again doing the honours of rocking the nets to complete his double. Before the break, Andell Anthony gave Agricola an indication of what was to come when he scored Mocha’s third goal in the 40th minute.
Picking up from where they left off in the first half, Mocha were back into goal scoring stride in the 52nd minute when Anthony found the back of the nets for his second strike to make it 4-0 in favour of Mocha.
Ten minutes later the score read Mocha 5 Agricola 0, Anthony completing his hat-trick. Agricola, which lost their previous match to Herstelling looked a shadow of themselves and not fully recovered from the Hestelling loss.
However, they were able to pull back a couple of goals during a late surge and even missed a penalty which could have further reduced the deficit. Brian Prince in the 66th and Egbert Nedd one minute later were the only players to score for Agricola as Mocha walked away with full points with a 5-2 win.
Matches will continue this Sunday at the same venue when Diamond open against Kuru Kururu Warriors at 13:30hrs; the second game pit Agricola against Soesdyke Falcons.
