Bafana hit high fives

By Craig Silver, May 8, 2008

Bafana Bafana eased their relegation fears after hammering 2005 Premier Division champions Faithfold A 5-1. Simon Lawrence (3) and Aron Lawee (2) did the damage against a Faithfold team that had two players sent off and finished with eight after another had to leave early. Andrew Wolfin grabbed Faithfold’s consolation.

A brace from Gary Cohen put Montana Boca United A within touching distance of promotion from Division One after they beat Camden Park 2-0. Already-promoted Glenthorne United were forced to put title celebrations on ice after they were thumped 4-1 by North West Neasden B. Strikes from Stevie Krein, Ben Forman, Bruno Frankel and Adam Klein boosted Neasden’s promotion hopes.

A hat-trick from wonderkid Roie Spitzer plus a penalty from top-scorer Assi Avital kept alive Golders Green’s hopes of avoiding the drop after they beat fellow strugglers Faithfold B 4-1. Simon Wax claimed Faithfold B’s consolation. Jason Sears and Johnny Winton helped Brady beat Chigwell B 2-1. Ian Bean, Alex Bourne and James Sandler were among the scorers as Southgate Harmen A ended their season on a high with a 4-0 success over Hendon B.

Oakwood B face an anxious wait to see if they will be crowned Division Two champions after they were held to a draw by Brixton Old Boys. Robert Bloch and Daniel Geey scored for the Os who hold a nine-point lead over South Mancs A who have three games in hand. Relegated Life FC sprung a surprise when they claimed only their second league win of the campaign against already-promoted Neasden C.

Two goals from Ed Lewin and one from Lewis Cohen sealed the win. Neil Hunwick (3), Eddie Walton (2), Louis Florentin-Lee and Yves Florentin-Lee helped Holy Mount Zion thrash Zig Zag 7-0. FC Team A clinched promotion from Division Four thanks to a hat-trick from Johnny Breger in the 3-0 success over Pure Orange Function Band.

Josh Lewis and a last-minute winner from Yoni Conway helped L’Equipe clinch second place in Division Five with a 2-1 win over Real MAL. Goals from Jonny Reid, Steve Weller and top-scorer Neil Lux helped Team JLGB past champions South Mancs B. Daniel Polak (2), Ben Hildebrand and Eli Meshulam struck as high-flying Hendon Hawks claimed a 4-2 success over FC Marylebone.
