New League Leaders after hard-fought Quinta thriller
Sunday football round-up, with Rod Martin.
The Torbay Sunday League is developing into an exciting contest as new League leaders emerged last weekend. Three teams are challenging at the top with only one loss each.
Wheel Power FC inflicted a first defeat on rivals Old Brewery FC and knocked them off their lofty perch with a hard-fought 3-1 win at Quinta. Liam McAuley (pen), Dalian Dickinson and Steve Bowker scored for Power to overhaul Brewery on goal difference, while Tom Ogilvie replied. A good game was nearly spoiled by some poor referee decisions but the better team won on the day.
That game is our featured 'Match of the week', with a gallery of pictures available to view here.
Power will hope to consolidate their position this Sunday, on the 3g pitch at Paignton Community College, against Indian Ocean FC.
Brewery meanwhile, go to King George V to face a revitalised Spartans FC who dispatched fifteen past Torbay Wanderers without reply. Si Ross got five while there were hat-tricks for Jamie McIntyre, Curtis Booth and Dom Aplin. Scott Corderoy completed the rout.
Wanderers will try to bounce back at Cricketfield Road against Palace Place Boys who also scored double figures in their bottom of the league battle with Moon FC. Stuart Bowker (6), Richard Frost (4), Luke Dandy (2) and Jules Emati-Emati kept the ref's pencil scribbling in a 13-1 win at Whiterock.
Finally, third placed Plough Inn FC eased into the next round of the Bill Matthews Cup at Buckland and Milber. Josh Moore's treble and goals from Shaun Waldron and Dave Crowhurst ousted Indian Ocean FC 5-0. Dog and Duck FC are up next for Plough in a league match at Barton Downs.
