Salmon frustrates Bayern boys

Bayern Mincha moved five points clear at the top but they were unable to secure maximum points after a fierce battle against third-place FC Team, for whom player-manager Mitch Young and Richard Salmon registered.

    A nervy start saw both sides failing to create many clear-cut chances, but a magetic 50-yard pass on the half volley from Samuel Kanter, reprising his role in the hole, found Adam Ellis who tapped home to put Bayern ahead.

    It wasn't long after that FC Team drew level after some confusion in the Bayern defence, with Young making no mistake.

    After the break, Bayern pounced quickly with some neat play from Leader and Eli Davila finding Ellis in space. A glorious finish saw Mincha take the lead.

    A Zigic-esque header from Salmon via a trademark FC Team long-throw meant level pegging once again.

    A Bayern onslaught late in the day wasn't enough - Akiva Fink's with a disallowed goal, Alon Pinhas weaving inside and Gavriel Nussbaum nearly finding the net with his head.

    FC Team's Mitch Young told JC Sport: "We were the better team and should have won.

    "We created a number of clear-cut opportunities in the first half and the game should have been out of sight.

    "However, with Adam Ellis, they were always a threat and out of the three chances that they created all game, he scored two of them. Without him it would have been very comfortable but there you go. The football we played in the first half was excellent and we enjoyed the game."

    Bayern joint-manager Alon Pinhas told JC Sport: "A good Sunday League scrap overall, with some questionable refereeing and interesting WWE auditions from the FC Team boys.

    "Good luck to our opposition for the rest of the season though."
