Forward Yvonne Barnato #58 claims the only goal of the match on a free kick.

Europa flies to a home victory with Barnato beating Badal on a free kick.

Suit malfunctions force Captain Uday Lanka out early in the first half.  Without their striker, Immortals put in a good effort but lagged behind Europa United in shots on target. Instead, they picked up 6 yellow cards as they hassled the Europa United midfielders.  

GOALS

  • FT 26' Barnato scores on free kick for Europa United

NOTABLE SUBSTITUTIONS

  • HT 12' Fox substituted for Lanka due to EV suit malfunction
  • FT 14' Hama substituted for Aurak due to EV suit malfunction

Titans are deflated after Wong successfully converts a penalty kick in the 2nd half to give Wuji the lead. 

The teams are evenly matched with Lian leading Wuji with strong offense in throughout the game. Saprai is awarded a red card after smashing an opponent's lifepack with her knee. The serious offence resulted in the Titans defender being suspended for 2 matches. Nash allegedly has post-match 'hissy fit', lashing out at teammates.

GOALS

  • HT 14' Lian scores the first goal for Wuji
  • HT 22' Nash scores for Titans
  • FT 21' Wong scores a penalty kick for Wuji
  • FT 25' Galio scores the final goal for Wuji

NOTABLE SUBSTITUTIONS

  • FT 20' Zheng taken out due to suit malfunction

Captain Liddell Bradley #95 and Comets lick their wounds after losing a match they should have won.

Comets left baffled as Al'Amal steals the win despite being outplayed and outgunned by the Season 1 champions.

The Comets were in perfect form controlling much of the match.   Uncommon missteps were what let the match slip away from the disciplined team. Guler was able to cross a shot into the bottom left of the net. Many are calling the goal a lucky fluke, but time will tell whether Guler will perform consistently in his new role as forward.

GOALS

  • HT 14' Shelton scores for Comets
  • FT 17' Farra scores for Al'amal
  • FT 27' Guler scores for Al'amal
