Goals galore at Atlantis
FOLLOWING a number of call- offs last week, it was back to business as usual in the Atlantis Leisure five-a- side football league.
Menzies Parcels 2 Oban Joinery Services9
Oban Joinery Services finally got their league campaign under way after a couple of unfortunate call- offs. It was a close game with OJS going in at half-time just the one goal to the good.
A quick flurry of goals and dominant play saw them put seven past a yet again depleted Menzies squad, who did well to hold on in the first half with a squad of five. Man of the Match was OJS’ Scott MacMillan.
Oaklea 3 Glensanda 9
In an encounter where the scoreline did not reflect the true closeness of the game, it was the defending champions Glensanda who overcame an Oaklea squad who were well up for the game.
Glensanda had a depleted squad, but the clinical finishing of once again man of the mMatch Craig McEwen saw them overcome a difficult game in which they were trailing. Oaklea made a great game of it with some excellent play, unfortunately they just couldn’t put many of their chances away.
AC Milama 11 OES 3
AC Milama continued their unbeaten start to the season with another big victory over a tough OES side. The victorious side have started the season well, and played with a lot of confidence, and if not for a great performance from OES goalkeeper, the scoreline could have been a lot worse for the newcomers. Man of the Match was AC Milama’s David McPhee who did the job at both ends of the pitch with some fantastic finishing and good, aggressive defending at the other.
Cuan Mor 3 Inter Milama 8
In the last fixture of the afternoon, it was Cuan Mor who looked likely to take the points, going 3- 0 up after the first 15 minutes and looking extremely dangerous and comfortable.
Inter Milama, who were without their captain Grant MacPherson dug deep and pulled one back before half-time. The second half was a totally different story as Inter came racing out of the blocks and really took control of a game that they could have easily let slip away.
Robert Johnston was involved in nearly all of Inter’s goals and was certainly worthy of the Man of the Match award.
