The Grand Bahama Champions Soccer League’s (GBCSL) recent slate of action proved that the mens division is anyone’s for the taking while ladies of Sanitation Services’ Borussia Dortmund are tough to slow down.
This past Saturday and Sunday at the YMCA Soccer Pitch (June 15-16) the competition continued and so did Dortmund’s ladies’ winning streak. Thanks to a victory by way of forfeit the defending women’s champions scored a victory over Pharmachem’s Chelsea, who were unable to field a team that Saturday. The forfeit score was recorded as 3-0.
The men of Borussia Dortmund then took the field and faced off against the number one ranked men of Polymers’ Barcelona. It was too close to call for the majority of the match, but Barcelona managed to escape with a 2-0 victory.
Barcelona’s Andre Levarity had his footprint on this match as he scored the pair of goals for Barcelona in the sixth minute and 69th minute of play.
That Sunday, the ladies of Paradox’s Real Madrid ran away with a 3-1 victory over the ladies of Subway’s Barcelona. Ace striker Janeka Edey put in two goals to lead Madrid in the victory. Her teammate, Jalan Taylor chipped in with one goal. Derishae Demirette was the only goal scorer for Barcelona.
On the men’s side, the defending champion men of FOCOL’s Real Madrid slid further in the rankings this season after going undefeated last year. Although Madrid took this past week’s opponent, the men of Municipal Motors’ Chelsea, to the brink, Chelsea still escaped this week with a 3-2 triumph.
