Domino’s Dominators and Caesar’s Army were the lone teams to end the 20-team round-robin stage of the 2019 White Oak Strictly FX Soccer 6s Cup at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo, with a 100 per cent winning records on Sunday night.
Competing in Pool C, Dominators followed up their 5-1 beating of Jumbeez, where Isaah Leacock netted the competition’s first hat-trick and 3-1 win over The Reyes Bomb from Saturday’s opening day, by hammering Pure 6-0 and Sweaters United 5-1 to top their five-team pool with a maximum 12 points, three ahead of Reyes Bomb, who defeated Jumbeez 3-1 and Pure 3-2 in their remaining matches.
They were joined in the quarterfinals by White Oak and Caesar’s Army of Pool A, NetSix and Chill and Punchy Punch from Pool B and Air Committee and XO Night Life from Pool D.
In Pool A, Caesar’s Army won all four of their matches as well, beating White Oak 3-0 and Vas Lounge 4-2 to finish on top ahead of Wild Goose, who ended with six points from two wins and two defeats but with a better goal-difference after a 3-0 triumph in their decider.
NetSix and Chill stormed to the top of Pool B ahead of Punchy Punch and last year’s runners-up Diginitariez on goal-difference as well, after blasting Tribe 9-0 and Dignitariez 3-2.
The pair of Punchy Punch and Dignitariez had started the day in prime positions to advance with six points each. However, Punchy Punch’s 5-3 win over Bagalito was good enough to make up for their narrow 2-1 loss to Dignitariez and take second spot by virtue of a better goal difference as well.
And in Pool D, XO Night Life sneaked ahead of their rivals to grab first place with ten points after eking out a 2-0 win against Red Ants and a 1-0 win over previously unbeaten Air Committee, who slipped to second after whipping Stickerz International in their other match.
In the quarterfinals yesterday, Caesar’s Army faced NetSix and Chill, Dominos Dominators came up against Air Committee, Punchy Punch battled Wild Goose, and XO Night Life faced The Reyes Bomb.
The winners of the tournament, which ended last night, will collect $10,000 cash and $10,000 in services from SFX.
