Bleeding Goers stake a strong claim for glory

The first round of games in the Tallaght Champions League witnessed The Bleeding Goers stake a strong claim for outright success with a resounding 8-1 victory over the Average Joes. Arguably the biggest upset was in the Wednesday League where reigning champions the Auld Fella's unexpectantly fell to a surprise defeat away to unfancied Poxy Sox.

Wesley Nolan had his troops really fired up for this battle and they just got the better of their opponents to win by a single goal on an 8-7 scoreline

Champions League GROUP 2

THIS group produced two cracking games with Orwell and the F2's playing in our featured match.

It went right down to the wire with Shane Prunty's Orwell FC winning it by the narrowest of margins 6-5.

The F2s will be disappointed not to get anything from the game and will have to show their strength of character and pick themselves up for next week's game against the Rusty Balls.

Rusty Balls and The Renford Rejects renewed rivalries in a pulsating game with the lead changing hands throughout the entire 60 minutes but in the end a goal from captain Joe Collins rescued a point for his team Rusty Balls and the teams walked away with a point a piece. This group is wide open and there will certainly be a few twists and turns before the title is decided
