Eats Easy’s Emil Schultz scored all of his team’s five goals, thanks to teamwork and communication. It started at the 12th minute mark when Schultz connected the goal. It did not stop there as he followed up seven minutes later with his second goal.

Paire was not to be counted out so easily as Patrick McCallion answered back at the 25th minute mark to keep his team’s hopes alive.

After an exchange of back and forth action, Schultz connected his third shot at the 42nd minute mark. PFC’s Ajani Burrell then took matters into his own hands bringing the ball within the teeth of the defense and striking a long shot within the same minute.

PFC’s hard work seemed to be paying off as its players finally tied the game, 3-3, at the 50th minute mark thanks to McCallion’s second goal of the night.

But as soon as Eats Easy found their second wind, Schultz sank much-needed goals at the 68th and 70th minute marks to secure the win for his team, 5-3, and claim the Masters Division title.

Another exciting game

The battle for third place between the Matansa Football Club and Los Viejos was just as exciting. At first, Matansa set the tone as its players gathered three goals in the first half, two coming from Dhiraj Chhetri and the other from Lar Wongpaya.

Los Viejos had a slow start, scoring one goal only but its players flipped the script in the second half with three goals courtesy of Peter Loken and Tyce Mister. After Matansa scored one goal, the regular game ended in a 4-4 tie, forcing a shootout via penalty kicks.

In the end it was Los Viejos that triumphed, 6-4, after firing two goals while MFC remained silent.
