The action heated up in the Grand Bahama Champions Soccer League (GBCSL) this past weekend.
This past Saturday and Sunday’s slate of competition served up a few thrillers at the YMCA Soccer Pitch.
On Saturday (May 12) in the Women’s Division, Borussia Dortmund’s (sponsored by Sanitation Services) undefeated run continued against the Chelsea Football Club (sponsored by PharmaChem).
Dortmund’s record was pushed to 7-0-0 (win/draw/loss) on the season, with a 3-0 default victory. With the loss Chelsea maintained their second place spot in the standings and now hold a 2-2-3 record on the year.
On the men’s side, Dortmund (Sanitation Services) gained the early advantage on their foes, Barcelona (Polymers). With two early goals forced, Dortmund just needed to defend as long as they could until the final whistle was blown.
However, Barcelona did not go away quietly and eventually stormed back to force three unanswered goals, to score the 3-2 heartbreak of Borussia Dortmund.
Barcelona sits in third place thus far, with a record of 3-1-3.
Dortmund was left winless, once again, and sit in fourth place at 0-1-6.
The Mother’s Day edition of the GBCSL was an ultra-competitive affair.
Real Madrid (Paradox) and Barcelona (Subway) played each other close and would not give an inch in their Ladies’ Division clash. However, both teams played to a draw of 2-2.
Real Madrid holds the fourth spot in the standings and their record after the draw stood at 1-2-4. For third place Barcelona, their record became identical to Real Madrid’s 1-2-4 standing.
However, on the men’s side, first place Real Madrid (FOCOL) was taken to the brink by second place Chelsea (Municipal Motors). Nonetheless, Real Madrid prevailed to score the 4-3 win over Chelsea.
Real Madrid improved to a 6-1-0 mark for the season while Chelsea fell to 3-1-3.
