Chapman Athletic had a huge 6-nil win over La Fiamma in round three of the Men’s A-grade competition two weeks ago. Rovers managed one goal against Olympic FC but it wasn’t enough and Olympic netted 4 goals. It was an absolute thumping in the women’s match between Chapman Athletic and Batavia United with Chapman Athletic booting a high 15 goals to Batavia’s none. Scores were all level in the Olympic vs La Fiamma Scorchers with the final whistle sounding and scores were 3-all. It was a tight match-up between Saints and La Fiamma Red but it was the Saints who took home the 2-1 win. In the other women’s match it was Rovers who trumped Marconi 2-0. This week’s match results will be published on Monday.
