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. Sometimes they will have their top goal scorer, winner of the Div 3 Golden Boot from Season 16, Kai Tsutomu, playing in nets. Sometimes they barely have 11. But recently they've found their form and are yielding great results. As stated in this beggining of the season, I truly believe Clash have one of the best teams in Division 3 and still predict them to be one of the two teams to be promoted.
The game between Clash and Brunello was quite even in terms of possesion. Some may even say Brunello controlled the game a bit better. But Brunello could not finish off their buildups while Clash remained clinical in the box. The first three goals scored by Daisuke Tanji with Riki Sekine delivering the nail in the coffin, Clash took a comfortable 4-1 win over Brunello FC.
Congratulations to Clash FC for earning the Robert Walters Team of the Week!
