Thunderbolt Sam’s day!

    Mostyn FC

    Camden Sunday League
    Challenge Cup

    THERE are just eight teams left battling it out for our prestigious Camden Sunday League Challenge Cup.
    There was a staggering 44 goals scored at Hackney Marshes at the weekend as trophy-chasing teams from all three divisions went head-to-head for a place in the quarter-finals.
    The biggest win of the round belonged to Division Two leaders Mostyn FC, who thumped Division Three opponents FC Bertoli.
    Hotshot Sam Roberts was the star of the show, scoring five goals with an unstoppable display of clinical finishing. Among the striker’s efforts were two 25-yard thunderbolts that would have beaten any keeper in the Camden Sunday League. Alhaji Allie, Grant Murphy, Darren Leung and Daniel Rowland were also all on target as Mostyn ran out 9-0 winners.
    Phoenix netted the second biggest win in round two of the competition with a 9-2 victory over Constitution.
    Phoenix, who will be crowned Division One champions if they avoid defeat against CS Maritimo this Sunday, took the lead through Paul Dunne. A spirited Cons side equalised to make the score 1-1 at the break.
    In a rampant second-half showing, leading scorer Anthony Clark hit a hat-trick to take his personal tally to 28 for the season.
    With man-of-the-match Kevin Duffy pulling the strings for Phoenix, Jake King and Paul Butler were allowed to get forward and grab two goals apiece. Midfielder Michael Patrick also found the back of the net to score his 11th goal of the campaign.
    Luke Bernard-Morgan scored his second hat-trick of the season as Reddot sealed a routine 5-1 win over MDM. Despite Luke’s timely treble, the man-of-the-match award went to Aaron Clarke, who was in outstanding form as he set up three of Reddots’ five goals.
    Colm Lawlor scored his first goal of the season, before the prolific Paul Reid rounded off the win.
    Mitchell Graham scored twice as CS Maritimo booked their place in the last eight with victory over the Mayville ‘B’ team. Filipe Catano and Carlos Tomar added their names to the score-sheet as Maritimo won 4-2.
    Field Crusaders, Cobden Athletic and Sir Robert Peel complete the quarter-finals line-up.
