Recap: Week 6

Southlanders Unbeaten After Six Matches; Take Over First Place
The substitutes came up big in several BSL matches this weekend. Lets start with the first leg of the Empire Cup. The biggest moment of the match came when the Gunners Adam Jahn was red carded. Normally losing a man has a negative effect on a club but, the dismissal allowed the Spartans to have Jermaine Jones enter the match. Jones did not score, but his yellow card allowed the Gunners Noguiera to enter the match and he scored the equalizer to salvage a tie for his club.  Across the coast, Union SC broke a 2-2 tie with SC Canada when Dillon Serna was subbed into the match to score the game winner for the Southlanders. Juninho would add some insurance, but the damage was done by Serna. The win pushed Union SC into first place in the BSL for the first time since week 15 of 2009. Meanwhile, Gold Coast FC handed Cumberland Athletic its first defeat ever thanks to a Gabriel Torres brace. The result moved the Wildmarys down to 2nd place, and the Suns up to 3rd place. Also this week, Orange County moved into the playoff zone of 5th place after defeating the struggling Battle. This match was another game that had a sub score off the bench. The Zodiac's third scorer was Ricardo Clark off the bench. Second City got back in the win column defeating Gateway United 3-2, and Rose City got the club first win of the season defeating Burud Town 5-0.

  1. Though it didn't affect the outcome, I don't think I had a LF. I remember rushing to post and barely getting it submitted before the Vancouver-Columbus kickoff.

    2. In my haste I posted the wrong week number in the title, so I went back and changed it after the fact, so I think the timestamp is from the last edit.

  2. Monkeys, backs, something something. Expect a post from me soon on the main league page. For now, suffice it to say that I find this result an aberration and this team needs help.
