DANNY CARO'S GOAL OF THE WEEK
Benjy Israel used all of his fresh legs to run from midfield, beating four men, rounding the keeper and slotting home in goal of the week/season contender!

-------------------------
-------------------------

DANNY CARO'S SAVE OF THE WEEK
Josh Cohen (Blancos) - a header from a corner was destined for the roof of the net until Cohen, in his last Blancos appearance, intervened with his fingertips to tip over the bar

-------------------------
-------------------------

DANNY CARO'S QUOTE OF THE WEEK
Adam Hersh (Blancos) - "It is sad to see some of the Los Blancos founding members moving on to bigger and better things. Josh Cohen, who has been Mr consistent between the sticks and has been one of the top goalkeepers to grace the MSFL for many years. His performances have literally won us games and he will be missed and we wish him much luck when he makes Aliyah in the summer"

CHIGWELL SEE OFF NINE MAN THORNES
CHIGWELL ATHLETIC 2 GLENTHORNE UNITED A 1
Glenthorne United's title hopes suffered a fatal blow as they were beaten 2-1 by local rivals Chigwell Athletic at the Met Police Sports Ground.

Two wonder free-kicks from Paul Hizer did the trick for Chigwell.

Fabio Rivieccio scored for Glenthorne who were unable to repeat last week's 2-1 win over Richard Slater's men.

And to make matters worse, Glenthorne had Adam Shafron and Jake Barnett dismissed - both last men on seperate occasions.

Chigwell player-manager Richard Slater told JC Sport: "We were the better side overall and deserved the win. We started the game with quick tempo, but yet again we wernt clinical enough in front of goal for the amount of chances we missed.

"They had a 15-minute spell in second half after their goal, but thankfully we put the game to bed and ended our season with a win."

Glenthorne boss Sam Rosenthal told JC Sport: "We 'can't argue with the sending off's but we still had the chances to win the game, even when we went down to nine men.

"Credit to the boys for a great season, shame that teams pulling out and forfeiting games have decided our fate in the league."

HARMEN SHOW OFF THEIR SIX PACKS
FAITHFOLD B 0 SOUTHGATE HARMEN 6
A stunning hat-trick from BEN MURRELL saw Southgate Harmen finish the season on a high after hitting Faithfold B for six to register their eighth win of the season.

Further strikes from Sam Castle, Alex Bull and Josh Franklin ensured outgoing manager Dan Uzan received the perfect send-off.

An emotional Uzan told JC Sport: "The last five years at Harmen have been incredible. It's a special club that was set up by Jon Hirshler, Marc Cohen and Simon Lyons 12 years ago. I have tried my best to keep the team together, to keep them challenging, and most improtantly to have a squad of players we could be proud of."

FIVE-STAR BLANCOS SEAL PROMOTION
NORSTAR B 1 LOS BLANCOS 5
Los Blancos clinched promotion to Division One with, goalkeeper Josh Cohen marking his last game for the club with a goal from the penalty spot.

Further strikes from Joel Kutner, Benjy Israel and a double from player-manager Adam Hersh saw them pip SPEC FC to the runners-up spot.

Blancos boss Adam Hersh told JC Sport: "We started a little nervously but as we got into the game we started to totally dominate and all that was lacking was a goal to kick us on to a comfortable victory.

"This season has been a very satisfying one with many predicting a mid-table finish at best for LB. We have played some excellent football and fully deserve our promotion spot. Commiserations to SPEC who pushed us all the way."

Blancos' Joel Minsky told JC Sport: "It was a cagey first half, but Blancos class told in second. We're promoted to Division 1 at first time of asking."
