Week 3 Round-Up: Streakers and Suspensions

28 Oct

Zanzibar FC are looking into allegations of a streaker running on to the pitch during Mozambique Stars’ 3-2 victory over Gor Mahia.

ZFC week 3 was full of incident with a bag full of goals, yellow cards, dodgy refereeing and worst of all, an alleged streaker running on the pitch.

In the opening game, Taifa Stars edged passed a resilient Gor Mahia team 4-3 with goals from Aarif Fazel, Mehboob Ajwani, Shaneabbas Kara and Shan Sardar leaving up and coming Gor Mahia keeper Faraaz Fazel considering a change of career.

Mohammed Hassan Rashid will have to serve a one-match suspension as he  picked up his second yellow card of the season which rules him out of Gor Mahia’s crunch game wih AFC Leopards on 3rd November.

Mozambique Stars beat AFC Leopards 3-2 in a thrilling encounter with Calbe-Ali Najarali scoring the winning goal with only a few minutes left.

Mozabique Stars’ celebrations at Toronto City Sports Centre were marred by an alleged streaker running on to the pitch. Zanzibar FC are taking this incident very seriously and have opened an internal investigation into the safety and security policies around the ground.

Zanzibar FC commissioner Mehboob Alidina was quoted as saying “we take all incidents such as these seriously, if the allegations are found to be true then the individual in question will be banned for life from Zanizibar FC. We have a zero tolerance policy against streaking”.

In the third game of the night, FC Dynamo and Sofapaka FC shared the spoils 1-1 which is a result that neither team will be happy with.

The final game of the night saw Manama FC dispatch an under-par Gymkhana 5-1 with the help a match winning performance from superstar goalie-turned-striker Mohamed Mohamedali. Mohamedali scored the vital second goal and setup captain Mo Imran Amirali for Manama’s third goal which set them on their way.

Amirali completed his hat-trick which included a header and Hasnainali Walli completed the rout with a Van Persie esque finish.

There was a hint of handball in the lead-up to a Manama FC’s crucial third goal from Mohamed Mohamedali who when asked responded that it was the hand of god.
