Academy SC Lionfish defeated Latinos B 4-0 with Kaleb Barboram scoring a hat trick and Oliver Cooke rounding off the scoring.

In the day’s most anticipated match-up, 345 FC B outlasted Academy SC Stingrays 2-1 with Daniel DeQuintal and Breannach Lynch securing the victory for 345 FC B. Academy’s talented Joshua Elliott’s late goal did set-up a tense last few minutes, especially when he hit the outside of the post with the final attack of the game.
