Team of the Week goes to Clash FC over their win over Brunello FC at Shigaku. A 4-1 victory giving Clash FC their 7th win in a row. Brunello are currently at the top of the division with 10 points clear from the second place team but that did not stop Clash FC. Clash, positioned third, have had their on and off games.
