United victory leaves fans roaring for more as they tie with the Dynamos at the top.

No longer plagued by the missed penalty kicks that hung over him in Season 1, Darkeem Dennis sent the ball straight into the corner to win the game for Europa United. Dennis has contributed steadily to goals in the last games for United—making on of the top three scorers in the current standings.

Pernet is out with a nasty arm fracture. The injury could potentially put the United forward out of play for the rest of the season.

Dynamos rally after last week's loss and easily steamroll the Titans at Novyimir Stadium.

Many are questioning the Dynamo's meteoric rise through the standings. Club manager, Ludomir, is crediting the team's success to discipline and working hard throughout the off-season.

Titan's midfielder, Sarah Kelly, is out of play with a sprained ACL. "We're looking at a recovery time of at least three weeks with knee injuries—even with all the medical tech that we have," says Titan's coach Salgado. 

GOALS

  • 1ST 13' Budnik scores for Dynamos
  • 2ND 8' Stadnyk scores for Dynamos
  • 2ND 14' Samrend scores for Dynamos

Immortals are stuck in a rut, gave game away amidst mounting frustration.

Although the teams were evenly matched on the field, the Immortals missed the mark due to sloppy play. Lanka's streak of goals came to an end today. The Comet's winning goal has been hotly contended by Immortal goalkeeper, Chamanda Badal—who claims that she missed the save by a hair because her thrusters did not fire when activated.

So far, no malfunctions in Badal's suit has been reported in post-match equipment inspections.

Fingers are beginning to point as fans blame Cezar Vaduva's coaching for the Immortal's poor performance. Immortal's manager, Andam Mirza backed up Vaduva, but promised change, saying, "Vaduva has innumerable years of experience with football clubs on Earth and we trust him. We're approaching this as a team here. And things are going to change, we're not going to let our fans down."

GOALS

  • 1ST 17' Elliot scores for Comets
  • 1ST 23' Hagendoorn scores for Immortals
  • 2ND 6' Benjamin scores for Comets

Dongji puts up a good fight, but is unable to ward off Wuji during extra time.

Without Ekberg to lead the team, Dongji fights hard to in an equally pitched battle with Wuji, but is defeated in extra time by a well-aimed header from Beldad. Unable to perform under the pressure, Geng misses his penalty kick, costing Dongji their chance to take the lead and possibly win the match in the second half. 

This win puts Wuji ahead of Dongji on the standings as the rivalry continues between the two teams. Ekberg has taken personal responsibility for the loss and apologized to fans and teammates post game for his display of immaturity that earned him the suspension.

  • 2ND 3' Xie scores for Dongji
  • 2ND 19' Wong scores for Wuji
  • 2ND 22' Geng scores for Dongji
