Post reclaim 2nd spot

Post reclaim 2nd spot

The PPPost team surged back into second place of the PPPost Mini Soccer Championship on Tuesday night with a brace of victories at the Kidzcool Astroturf pitch. A hard fought match against Banzai saw the Post side accelerate away from their opponents in the final five minutes, knocking a few “lucky” goals past Banzai’s self-styled “best goalkeeper in the competition” to record an 11-6 win.

The Post went on to beat Me Mates 9-5 and leapfrog reigning champions Devenco in second through a superior goal difference. JBCF remain three points clear at the summit, with their only loss coming against Devenco.

The most entertaining contest on Tuesday night was saved til last, with Me Mates taking on steadily improving hosts Kidzcool. A nerve-racking final third had the sides notching goals in quick succession at both ends to stay on level pegging. However, a last-gasp strike by Me Mates saw Kidzcool’s hopes of their first points of the campaign dashed, with the final scoreline of 11-10 reflecting the epic battle.

In other games on Tuesday, Cellcard registered wins against Ezecom and Banzai to climb to fifth place. More fixtures play tonight at Kidzcool Children & Family Fun Village on Chhroy Changvar peninsular, while next Tuesday sees the concluding round of the first half of the tournament.
