ABU Dhabi are still blazing a trail
ABU Dhabi are still blazing a trail

The big match of the week in the HUCKNALL SIX-A-SIDE MONDAY NIGHT LEAGUE at The National Academy went the way of reigning champions Abu Dhabi.

However, they were helped by the fact that opponents, Team 316, were badly depleted, enabling Abu Dhabi to ease to a 4-2 victory, with Jack Walker taking the man-of-the-match award.

The result maintained the champions’ 100% record so far this term. But only six points seaparate top from bottom after another night of high-quality action. Indeed league newcomers, Naughty America, also remain unbeaten after a 2-0 win over Tuesday night league champions, Newstead, that featured a man-of-the-match display by Harry Townsend.

Sitting in third place are Baywatch Babes after a close-fought 3-2 success against The Groomsmen, which was inspired by star man James Stokes. And continuing to do well in fourth are Asian Persuasion, who defeated Warriors 3-1.

Life in the league doesn’t get any easier for Tea And Busquets, who slid to a 7-0 defeat against KFC. But last season’s bottom team, Heaton Sports, celebrated their first points of this term by spanking Wa1tz D1sn3y 8-0.
