At­lantis Leisure five-a-side league is now un­der way

The Oban Times - - Sport -

THE AT­LANTIS Leisure fivea-side league got un­der way at the week­end with pre­vi­ous win­ners Glen­sanda re­ceiv­ing their sil­ver­ware.

Last sea­son’s tour­na­ment went down to the wire, with Glen­sanda and At­lantis Leisure go­ing head-to-head for the ti­tle. Glen­sanda ran out 4-1 win­ners in the end.

This sea­son got off to a slightly re­served start.

AC Mil­ama 4 Hakuna Juan Mata 4

The league got off to a ex­tremely high qual­ity start with new­com­ers Hakuna Juan Mata go­ing be­hind three times but show­ing su­perb re­silience to peg a goal back each time be­fore go­ing 4-3 up them­selves with five min­utes to play. A missed penalty could have cost AC Mil­ama dearly but a late equaliser en­sured both teams de­servedly took some­thing from the match. Man of the match was Hakuna Juan Mata’s Cammy MacMil­lan.

Oak­lea 2 Cuan Mor 2

De­spite there not be­ing a sin­gle draw in the en­tirety of the league last sea­son, the open­ing fix­tures of this sea­son saw sev­eral.

Oak­lea’s man of the match Kieran Hendry put his team ahead but a good fight­back from Cuan Mor, aided by an Oak­lea red card, saw the points shared be­tween two well­matched teams.

OES United 4 Men­zies Parcels 4

De­spite fin­ish­ing at the foot of the ta­ble last sea­son, a su­perb per­for­mance from Men­zies saw them feel­ing ex­tremely unlucky not to be walk­ing away with all three points.

A well-bal­anced dis­play and two well-taken penal­ties saw Men­zies go 4-1 up but a su­perb fight­back from the league new­com­ers saw them get the game back to 4- 4 be­fore an in­cred­i­ble triple save from Men­zies’ man of the match Mark Reilly en­sured the points were shared.

Glen­sanda 5 At­lantis Leisure 1

A re­match of the fi­nale of last sea­son saw cham­pi­ons Glen­sanda easily see off a slightly de­pleted At­lantis team.

An­other su­per per­for­mance from man of the match Craig McE­wan en­sured Glen­sanda took the vic­tory, with James Scott play­ing ex­tremely well in goal, in the ab­sence of last year’s play­ers player of the sea­son David Kin­sella. Glen­sanda again look the team to beat this year.
