Champions League

JLS 8 Scouting for Goals 0

Scouting for Goals were soundly beaten for the second week in a row, but they have played last season's top two teams.

JLS were as goal hungry as ever and showed no mercy as they launched wave after wave of attacks, with semi retired Sam Blunt at the heart of the action. JLS's scorers were Ben Thomas, Bruce Cocking, Sam Blount and Martin Sleeman, who all scored twice.

Scouting for Goals 0 FC Corona 5

New team Corona FC started in style and their slick interpassing soon showed a reward as Gavin Cunliffe opened the scoring.

From then on it was one way traffic with Cunliffe adding a second and Joad Vez completing a hat-trick for the new team on the block.

JLS 2 Undateables 0

This was a keenly fought contest, that was won with first half goals from Martin Sleaman and Ben Thomas.

Undateables had their chances to get back into the game in the second half as JLS tired, but a mixture of wayward shooting and great defending prevented them from capitalising and JLS ended the match worthy winners.

Dixons Cider 1 The Brit 0

An early goal from Kieran Bishop settled this game in Dixons' favour, but their defence had to work overtime to prevent The Brit from getting back int0 the game.

Dan Sacky had the best chance for The Brit but his goalbound strike was brilliantly saved by Dixons' keeper.

Corona FC 2 Cookies Little Monsters 0

Cookies played a big part in this game against one of the top sides and it is testament to their progress that Corona had to be at their best to narrowly beat them.

The Saints 10 Beach Boys 1
