Bend it Like Benji have taken a hold on first place of the men’s Pool A ladder of the Bangalow Summer 6s Soccer after beating Bayer Neverlosen last week.

A win to Bayer would have seen them leapfrog Bend it Like Benji into the top ladder position, but their opponents were too strong, winning 5–0. Bend It Like Benji remain undefeated across their five games.

In Pool B Ball and All are just in front of the Red Rockets on the table, but neither side dominated in their game last week that finished 1–1.

In Pool C there is a tussle between Kippah FC and The Porks, who are tied for second place, just one win behind Bat Soup.

In the women’s Pool A the Sharkies 2.0 are proving hard to beat and have five wins from their five starts. Last week they dusted up the Eureka Streakers, beating them 12–0.

The Balna Blowins also had a good win beating the Prawn Stars 7–2. Sendy Wendys beat Kiss My Pass 8–1, while the Cocktail Party and the Pink Panthers were locked in a two-all draw.

Aville and Balna Blowins top Pool B in the women’s while Breakway Beers top Pool C.

A catch up round was played last Tuesday after a washout in round two, ahead of the final regular-season game on Wednesday 23rd of November.

Three weeks of finals will then determine this year’s champions.
