The 16 Star Bowl final is this Friday, 4 May. It’s at Bangor FC grounds, the site of many a cup final victory for the blue’n’black. It’s at 6.30pm and let’s get a good crowd out to cheer on the lads. …. and Jason, of course!
The Golden Glove will go to the last kick, or the last deperate lunge by the keeper past the post, of the season. As the season reaches its pinnacle, a clean sheet from Kayo Dobrolowski of 14 Star means he joins Luke Kilpatrick of 16 Star at the top of the table. They share the lead with six clean sheets each. The big question now is can Luke, who still has one game left, pull off one last clean sheet and win the trophy outright?
Conor George ended the season the way he started it – with a hat trick that seals the Golden Boot. In fact, its been obvious for a while now that Conor’s lead was unlikely to be chipped back, but we’re a cautious bunch at Aquinas and have left a declaration of the result until now. So, it’s official, the Golden Boot has been called for 2017/2018 – CONOR GEORGE HAS WON THE GOLDEN BOOT. Conor has 37 goals to his credit and can’t be caught by the chasing pack. Take a bow, Conor!
Who would have thought that any competition would have been decided by Everton? Champions League, Premiership .. no Last Man Standing. Going into the weekend’s fixtures, we had ten still hoping to pick up the prize fund of £1,000. Leicester losing and the Stoke/Burnley draw, amazingly, took mout nine of them. All eyes turned to the Everton game to see if Senior player, Mark Cummings could win the Grand outright. It took a Seamus Coleman header off the line in the 94th minute
Jack Broderick’s brace powered under 16 Star into the final of the SBYL Bowl competition. When we have the date, time and place for the final, we will let you all know. In the meantime, 16 Star, enjoy your preparations for the final and let’s get a great blue’n’black crowd out to support them on the day.
Martin Ramsey is getting closer to that captivating 200 Aquinas goal milestone. He now stands on 198 and everyone associated with the club is hoping he can round off the season in 200 club style. C’mon Martin!
We had two clean sheets today. The Seconds put a run of disappointing results behind them with a return to winning ways – and then some. They won 8 – 0 today at Rathmore, the Great Fort. Gavin McDonald kept it neat and tidy between the posts to notch up his third clean sheet of the campaign. Earlier in the day, Luke Kilpatrick of 16 Star also shut out all attempts on his goal to draw level at the top of the Golden Glove table and set up a nail biting finale to the season for
After a couple of slow weeks when it came to goals, the hat tricks are back in style. If I’m being pedantic, there were no hat tricks as today’s top scorers put four in the net. Liam Maguire did it for the Seconds in their comprehensive 8 – 0 win at Rathmore while Declan McVarnock also put four away in the 15s’ league winning victory over at Victoria Park.
Conor George’s biggest rival for the Boot, Nathan Skelly, scored today as the 15s clinched the league title. He narrows the gap on Conor slightly, but as the season grinds to an end is it too little too late to stop the long time leader.
