MATCH REPORTS

 

Week 3 of 10

Top Goalscorer - M Wesby - 27

The net was bulging again this week at Verwood as the pacesetters Inter smash in 21 against Tekkers. Hot shot Wesby scores eight to take his total to 27 from four games! Verwood B are the other team with a 100% record as they crush XFC 24-6 in a absolute goal fest!

The two other games in the middle of the table were much closer affairs. Yes Ndidi go it alone in third as they edge Ding 8-7 in an epic contest. Sheffield and Verwood can't be separated as they finish locked in an enthralling 8-8 stalemate, wow!
