Week 13 Round-up

Tiangong, Capricornus 8, 249

With the final whistle at Tiangong stadium, week 13 closed with more MAFL twists and turns.

The Chinese clubs both took surprising wins stirring up the sentiment from the swamp.   

Dongji's 2-1 win came at the expense of Novyimir, pulling them down to share a last place standing.

For Wuji, back-to-back wins promises up new life for the team.  It is also the first time this season that they find one of their team members on the leaderboard. Waaijer earned her 3rd goal in today's match against United.

The western clubs, San Olympus and Mariners, keep their winning streaks going.  12 and 9 wins respectively. 

 #12 Terrell takes to the air to capture the deciding goal at 18 minutes into the 2nd half.

The Titans victory over Al'amal was compliments of #12 Jube Terrell; whereas the Comets demonstrated firepower with a 3-0 assault on the Immortals.

 Comets #42 Chanara Benjamin gets results at 32nd mark.

The last time they faced each other was 6 weeks ago, with Titans taking the match only after PKOT!

The excitement is palpable.  The Titans face the Comets on their home turf!  The Comets have never lost a home game... and the Titans have only given up one game (and that was an away match)!

The Immortals and Al'amal may be licking their wounds after this round of defeats, but they too face off in a 3rd and 4th spot battle. 

It is also noteworthy to mention that this was a week where the women took charge.  Of the 10 goals scored over Saturni and Solis, 8 were made by female players!  If you haven't read the You Kick Like a Girl posted on Dhanus 16th, you should, it truly resonates!

Regardless how you are looking at the sport, whether it is from boys vs girls, from the top, middle or bottom, the MAFL continues to excite.
