Tripimeni 7 Komi Kebir 0

Tripimeni  sit prettily at the top on the League  table.  Komi Kebir got off to a great start against Tripimeni who always seem to get going late in their game.

Komi Kebir had the first chance with their striker Andy Stylianou hitting a great strike which the Tripimeni keeper Tarkan Assak  tipped over the bar. Komi were then down to ten men when Mirauld was sent off. This seem to make  Komi Kebir work harder and really gave it all and were disappointed to go in at half time 1-0 down when Alfie Bartram scored with a sceamer of a goal.

Komi Kebir fell apart when the second goal went in with Ahmet Rifat the scorer. Volkan crossed for Sam Bartram to score the third and Leon Semper cheekily chipped the Komi Kebir keeper to add the 4th goal.

Volkan the ex Komi Kebir player added the fifth goal and Ahmet Rifat secured his second to make it 6-0 and a Leo Semper second goal completed the score giving Tripimeni a comfortable 7-0 win and on track for the championship.

Apoel 4 New Salamis 1

What a turnaround for Apoel unlike last week when they could not hold on to their lead versus Tripimeni but this time round they made sure they kept their 4-0 half time lead even although they were  playing with ten men from the tenth minute when Boresh Chalcan was sent off.

Apoel new signing Sean Bennett Johnson scored both the first two goals in the first ten minutes. Andy Aristidou scored in the 35th minute with Michael Spencer adding a fourth.

Last year’s champion’s New Salamis scored a consolation goal in the 88th minute scored by Kyri Portou.

A very important win for Apoel it still gives them a chance of the championship.

Livadia 2 Rizokarpasso 2

Third placed Rizokarpasso had a hard time with Livadia even although they really attacked the Livadia rearguard they could not capitalise on their attacks.

Rizokarpasso led after ten minutes with Ricardo and just before the break Livadia equalised with a goal from Elias Katsoulides.

The Rizokarpasso goalkeeper Zourto was sent off and replaced by defender Nick Nicou  in the 50th minute but all the goal action had to wait until the dying minutes when Rizokarpasso scored in the 89th minute with Chris Varnavas and Livadia in added time with a penalty scored by Matt Demetriades.

Second Division

Arachne 2 Asha 2

Arachne the current second division leaders can’t be pleased with dropping two invaluable points against underrated Asha.

Arachne equalesed ten minutes after the break with an Anthony Kyriacou header from a free kick. Soon after Adam Alterparmakian made it 2-1.

Achna 3 Anorthosis 3

Both teams are promotion candidates with Achna who took  the initiative to take the lead and be 2-0 up within ten minutes with goals from Emerson Meade and Paul Abbott but Anorthosis fought back to take a 3-2 lead into the break with goals from Danny Coolridge who dribbled past three players before placing the ball neatly below the oncoming Achna keeper and a Vas free kick goal and Fabian Simms adding a third. Achna’s equaliser came in the 80th minute with a Justin Zacharia screamer.

This draw puts Anorthosis and Achna in third and fourth spot respectively.

Pantel 0 Pendayia 7

Pendayia went crazy to win their first game of the season and they did it in style it must have been the seven up drink that Harry the Pendayia manager gave them before the start of the game.

Pendayia were two nil up at half time with goals from Dimitri Lazos and Hakan. Further goals came from Theo Vasilliou, two from Mark Richards, Jordan Shaw and Joe Barnet.

KLN 3 Maronites 0

Cyprus Youth (KLN)  started brightly and had two shots cleared off the line in the first fifthteen minutes . Maronites had a couple of opportunities. The first goal came when Cedric Jackson played in Jamie Constantinou who beat two defenders and squared the ball to Chris Papacosta who volleyed it home on 30 minutes. The second half it was great end to end stuff with Chris Papacosta scoring direct from a free kick curling the ball sweetly into the top left hand corner.

Maronites pressed hard to get back into the game but with 15 minutes to go impressive KLN captain Ryan Whelan played a delightful through ball to exciting young winger Ricardo Ramos who slipped in Chris Papacosta again who delicately chipped the Maronites keeper for his hat trick to give KLN their first league points of the season and take them four places up the table.

Lets hope they get back to their old days where the  great KLN strikers Panny Panayiotou  and Panny Vrahimi thrived.

All Saints 3 Brotherhood 7

The first half both teams were evenly matched with the scores going like a yoyo but then Brotherhood had the better second half but All Saints still battled. 1-0, 2-0, 2-1 3-1, 3-2, 4-2, 5-2, 5-3 and finally 6-3 and 7-3 to Brotherhood.

Newly reformed All Saints are getting better as they get fitter All Saints goals were scored by Andreas Savva , Rhys Watson and Andreas Michael.
