    At the bottom of the 1st Division, Mike’s Ninja Turtles and 10-weeks absent Clockwork Orange were relegated.

    In the 2nd Division, JC Comets (18/+55) are champions. They are joined in their promotion celebrations by Alewive FC (18/+4). Alewive led most of the season, only to fall back to #4 in recent weeks. Alewive’s 42:34 victory, combined with losses by #2 Kingsbridge and #3 Arrows S.C. gave Alewive the honors. The last time Alewive was in the 1st Division was the Fall of 2005. At the bottom of the division, Sehome Mariners (9/-8) clung to salvation, while Duck Butter Bandits (9/-41) and last year’s League Cup winner, Phoenix TS (9/-67), were relegated.

    In the 3rd Division, the top three teams all lost, but Turboduck SC (18/+42) and Pioneer Detasselers (18/+22) are promoted at the expense of Aviators (16/+43) and winning Surreywood Rangers (16/+19). 11-weeks absent Geckos are relegated to non-league, replacing Real Hillsdale.

  • Mug’O’Suds Invitational: And then there were four. Phoenix TS advance on away goals 2:1 after drawing 1:1 at home, and 2:2 on the road, to Sasha Juniors. Their semifinal opponent will be SDFC Macross, who ended the two-year Mug’O’Suds championship reign of unclean sheets. The former champions did not go down without a fight, drawing the second leg 3:3, but falling 3:5 on aggregate. The first team in the other semifinal is cincinnati contomati, who won both legs to advance 3:1 over Surreywood Rangers. Making the other semifinal an all-Spain affair, Spanish Girls overcame a first leg deficit to advance on away goals 2:1 over Ladanday Rovers, after the series ended even at twos.

  • League Cup: In the 1st Division, top side Dynamo Silver Spring defeated second place Weirder Bremen 11:0.

(9 points / +33 ‘goal’ diff) and Clockwork Orange (9/+20) remain perfect, but do not meet each other until the final week of the summer session. Will it be a battle of the unbeatens? In the 3rd Division, a whopping 70% of the teams are on six points, led — barely — by Shaolin Mystigods (9/+17).

  • Mug’O’Suds Invitational: Five of twelve matches ended in draws, highlighted by the 4:4s put up by Dynamo Kyiv YCK and Alewive FC, and Hotspur and Sasha Juniors. Weirder Bremen edged Stonebury United 4:3, thanx to unusual insight in picking up San Jose’s defender Beitashour. After three of six group rounds, the leaders are Spanish Girls (A), Alewive FC (B), Hotspur (C), SDFC Macross (D), Weirder Bremen (E) and cincinnati contomati (F).
  • FA Cup: After three of six rounds, there are four perfect teams, and one without a point. In off the post (9 points / +15 ‘goal’ diff) leads Group A, Weirder Bremen (9/+44) leads Group D, Mike’s Ninja Turtles (9/+50) leads Group E and Darcian Greywacke (9/+14) lead Group F. The other group leaders are Aviators (B), MurphDogs (C) and Cánicas A.C. (G). The perfectly awful team is Sehome Mariners (0/-53) in Group B.
  • League Cup: The 1st Division had both the game of the week and the blowout of the week. The game of the week featured pointless Cánicas A.C. hosting mid-table Top Shelf. Cánicas A.C. are no longer pointless, must surely be disappointed with the 27:27 result. The blowout of the week saw the week’s third high scorer stomp a mud hole in the week’s third low scorer, Clockwork Orange 24:-4 Glorydaze. Dumpley Street Morons (12 points / +48 ‘goal’ diff) lead Dynamo Silver Spring (12/+22). The 2nd Division is shaping up to be a case of the haves and have-nots. Kingsbridge (12/+44) have a razor-thin lead over Weirder Bremen (12/+43). They are followed by five teams on nine points—which means the bottom three sides, on a collective six points, must have already switched their sites from promotion to avoiding relegation. In the 3rd Division, previously perfect Sehome Mariners were embarassing, losing -8:5 to Alewive FC, who are now top.
  • No Brew City side placed in the MFLS Weekly Top 25.

  • FA Cup: In Group F, Darcian Greywacke won their second two-‘goal’ victory in two weeks, defeating Shaolin Mystigods 28:26. The two sides are now at opposite ends of the group, Darcian leading, Shaolin without a point. In Group G, the top two teams lost to the bottom pair, leaving all four even on three points. This upcoming will will shake things out further, as each team finishes its first pass through the other teams.
  • League Cup: After four weeks, the division leaders are all on a perfect 12 points. In the 1st Division, Dumpley Street Morons (12 points / +53 ‘goal’ diff) lead Mike’s Ninja Turtles (9/+30).

Early group leaders are Spanish Girls (A), Alewive FC (B) for the first time in living memory, Hotspur (C), SDFC Macross (D), Stonebury United (E) and cincinnati contomati (F).
  • FA Cup: The FA Cup kicked off in less than the expected exciting fashion as a number of matches stuggled to achieve positive cumulative scores, including Aviators 0:5 Pioneer Detasselers, Real Hillsdale -5:10 Cánicas A.C., Mike’s Ninja Turtles 3:-1 Turboduck SC, and Weirder Bremen 0:-1 JC Comets. The early group leaders are Surreywood Rangers (A), Dumpley Street Morons (B), Grass Pitch Please (C), Alewive FC (D), Glorydaze (E), Van der Sara FC (F) and Kingsbridge (G).
  • League Cup: The week’s only decent game was in the 1st Division where Dumpley Street Morons defeated Glorydaze 21:16. Dumpley Street Morons top the division on a perfect 9 points and a healthy +42 ‘goal’ difference. In the 2nd Division, Kingsbridge have done even better, leading on 9/+53 after whacking Weirder Bremen 26:0. The 3rd Division was all about blow outs: Pioneer Detasselers 5:21 Van der Sara FC, Surreywood Rangers 31:8 Juice10, and Dudley Street Hooligans 8:36 Appleton Aarhus. Sehome Mariners (9/+34) are top.

In the 2nd Division, goal difference separates the top three teams: Kingsbridge (6/+27), Weirder Bremen (6/+17) and JC Comets (6/+7). The 3rd Division has the closest race, Sehome Mariners (6/+25) leading Dudley Street Hooligans (6/+24).
