Gameweek 8 had an exciting round of matches as Horizons strengthened its grip on the title. Mercurial is on the way to pull off a miracle after winning two in a row and move away from the bottom. Mavericks, Indian Ocean, Rare Dare FC and Project 7 all lost which should lead to a frantic finish as we approach the final three game-weeks.

Yataghan BFC 2–1 Rare Dare FC

Yataghan won a close encounter against RDFC to stay in the top half of the table. Yataghan managed to net two early goals when they went up 2-0 within the first ten minutes of the game whilst spending the rest of the time preserving the lead against a RDFC side that played well throughout and would feel deserved a point. Mica Levy was outstanding for Yataghan and the Argentinian winger is one player to watch out for in the upcoming games. RDFC have found cohesion in their game and will be looking to end on a high note.

Indian Ocean 0–8 Saints FC

Indian Ocean suffered its third loss in a row when Saints routed them in an 8-0 thrashing that now leaves Indian Ocean languishing at the bottom of the table. Saints FC comprehensively outclassed its opponents with Debangshu Seal scoring 5 to stay alive in the title race, at least, mathematically. Indian Ocean’s 5-0 thrashing of FC Kougen Kikou in GW 5 seems like a distant past and has lacked a real sense of direction in the last few weeks. With only 3 games to play and the upcoming fixtures against in-form Flipkart and Samba teams, relegation threatens the team barring a miracle.

Saints FC (Debangshu Seal 16’, 38’, 54’, 56’, 59’; Vikas Vasan 18’; Akshay Rawat 28’; Rajesh Prakash 43’)

Horizons FC 6–0 Project 7

Horizons FC moved one step closer to defending its title in an easy outing against Project 7. Horizons scored 5 in the first half before cooling down in the second, trying out different approaches to the game.  Project 7 had a mid-season revival but now finds itself in the relegation battle with a depleted squad. Project 7 has a game in hand over their rivals but need Rahul Singh in top form if they are to steer away from the drop zone. Horizons have been a class apart this season and are on their way to completing a perfect season without losing any games.

Samba FC 1–0 Flipkart FC

A 50th minute winner by Harith Balakrishna decided a tightknit affair between Samba FC and Flipkart FC. This win takes Samba over its opposition in the standings and will be eyeing top-four finish. Both teams played well in defense and a tactical game that was heading for a draw might have been a fair outcome but the result shows how far Samba has come as a team.  Flipkart has slowed down after its impressive start and is missing star striker Pavan Powar, who provides them with pace and finishing up front.

Mavericks FC 0–4 Mercurial FC

Mercurial FC came out on top against Mavericks FC in an important 6-pointer that sees the former rise from the bottom of the table. Dheeraj Bhagavan has been in good form and grabbed a brace whilst Padyumna Sharma, Aditya Holla and Martin D’ Souza put in solid performances for a team that is slowly coming together. Mavericks FC has had a disappointing season but need to get its act together with only 3 games to go. Mavericks still has to play Horizons and Saints, which makes the game against Project 7 next week even more significant.

Mercurial FC (Errol Tauro 16’; Dheeraj Bhagavan 32’,50’; Pradyumna Sharma 35’)

Gremio FC 3–1 FC Kougen Kikou

Gremio FC came from behind to defeat FC Kougen Kikou to take away all three points. FCKK went up in the first half when Daichi Takiishi put his team ahead but an impressive display of perseverance from Gremio saw them equalize soon after and the game was put to bed later with two goals in the second half. FCKK set up well tactically but in the end could not keep out Vignesh D, who leads the goal-scoring chart with 11 goals in 6 games. Gremio seems to have third place wrapped up whilst FCKK might have to settle for a mid table finish this season.
