E-League: Mariners down reigning Champions 12-5

E-League experts are calling it the upset of the season, but who would ever doubt King @KyrenFIFA & @JesseD1996? On Thursday night, our E-League competitors represented the club proudly, downing Sydney FC 12-5 on aggregate across Xbox & PS4.

The final match-up of the night saw defending premiers Sydney FC take our Central Coast Mariners.

Xbox: Necat “NFamous_Shadow8” Gorgec 3-7 Kiran “KyrenFIFA” Gupta

The final Xbox game of the night saw KyrenFIFA take on NFamous_Shadow with the Mariners representative putting on a strong performance to claim his side the three points.

A bizarre goal kicked off proceedings in the first leg, as three players contested for the ball with Raphael Varane seemingly managing to score with his head whilst on the ground in the 28th minute. Kyren then managed to extend his lead with two more goals after the break, with Shadow grabbing what would be a consolation goal.

In a much more orthodox fashion, Nfamous managed to open the scoring in the second leg through Cristiano Ronaldo in the 13th minute after he cut inside and finished with his left foot past the keeper. Kyren then equalised shortly after before both competitors added another goal each to leave the game poised evenly at 2-2. Once the second half kicked off, Kyren again asserted his first leg dominance and scored an additional two goals to secure a 4-2 aggregate win.

PS4: Jesse “JesseD1996” Da Silva 5-2 Joshua “Joshawaa” Gresham

Filling in for FUTWIZ Marko, Joshawaa looked comfortable as he faced Central Coast’s JesseD, who returned after missing the previous week.

In a tight first legged affair, both sides failed to open the scoring early on, with the first goal not coming until the 81st minute with Joshawaa managing to score a well worked Cristiano Ronaldo chance. It only took five minutes for JesseD to equalise through his own Cristiano Ronaldo which left it until the final game of the night to decide a winner.

The second leg went much differently in terms of the scoreline, but the scoring started in a similar fashion. JesseD opened the scoring through Eusebio in the 10th minute, before Joshawaa replied with an equaliser three minutes later courtesy of Ronaldo Nazario. But from then on it was all JesseD as he retook the lead with Cristiano Ronaldo just before the half hour mark, before adding a third and fourth goal in the second half, with Johann Cruyff topping off a wonderful performance and the collecting all three points for the Mariners.
