Mes made it 5 league wins in a row edging out Corinthians in a 5 goal thriller at Happy Valley Pitch 1. Corinthians opened the scoring via Marcus McMillian but were pegged back when Will Harvey levelled the scores. And it was that man Harvey again who put Mes 2-1 up only for McMillian to return the favour and bring the scores all square. In the eyes of the Corinthians management a draw would have been a fair result but Mes scored in the final 10 minutes to take all 3 points when a Leroy Lita free kick came back to him off the wall and a volley in off the post sealed the victory taking Mes up to 3rd in the league.
It was the same run of events in the earlier kick off at Happy Valley Pitch 2 as Krauts scored two goals in the last 10 minutes to beat Tropics 3-2. Coming out the traps a lot faster and hungrier, Krauts dominated possession for the first 20 minutes and took the lead from a terrible decision to award a free kick when Bastian Braun curled low round the wall. However, Tropics got back into the half and in their first sight of goal the ball broke to James Manning inside the six yard box who smashed it into the net. From there on Tropics had the better of play and into the second took the lead when Julien Dresco was fouled in the box and Kyle Wager converted the spot kick. However it was to be Krauts day as another Braun free kick was delivered into the postage stamp before he hit the winner with 5 to go. "An important win" was the comment from Sacha as his Krauts leapfrogged Tropics into 7th place.

Team Shotguns could only have themselves to blame for their 1-2 defeat to Blue Samurai. They played with 9 men for the first 10 minutes and Blue fully capitalized on this advantage to score two through the efforts of Ahmed Jemli and Benjamin Cadman.

They continued to gear up the pressure and created a lot of chances but still short of an equalizer in the first half. After the break the Blues got back in shape and it was more balanced, but they were forced down to 10 men after a red card in the final 15 minutes but they held off the pressure for the victory.
