Second half Tropiciana stepped up a gear and we were much better and dominated for first twenty minutes or so. Ruby's kept battling and got back in it with a great header from CK Fung to set up thrilling and tight finish but Club Tropicana held on. Bibley added if Ruby's put out a squad and play like that every week they will stay up.
 
Bants were not able to distance themselves from bottom pack with FWD winning 6-2 against them. FWD Mathieu Demange hattrick along with newbie Karif Arun scoring a double while Adam McCarthy scored a double for his side.

David Tse and Gordon Chung both scored for YG while Jamie was the scorer for TWF. According to TWF coach, it was an unlucky game for TWF as they missed 3 clear chances in the first half.

In the Legends League 28o & 90% humidity at 1pm didn't stop the French Dragons and FWD playing a decent game at Ma On Shan. FD seemed to have a slight advantage from the beginning as they had 17 players versus 12 for FWD.
Scoring fast was the key in this fixture and both Paul and Gary did that very well for the Dragons scoring 2 goals each in the first 30 minutes. The 4-0 score and the second half allowed all subs to replace tired legs with Jorge scoring his 16th & 17th goals of the season.
