Action from the Division 1 game between Joy Dive and Phuket Condos & Homes.

Division 1

Phuket Condos & Homes v Joy Dive FC: 1 – 5

The first game was the clash between table toppers PC&H and Joy Dive FC. PC&H were looking for revenge after losing in the reverse fixture, while Joy Dive were looking to get back to winning ways after two games without victory. Joy Dive, with new recruits for the second half of the season, started quicker and never looked back. At the final whistle Joy Dive had slotted in five goals for a 5-1 win.

Morning Star v Shakers FC: 2 – 1

Another classic match-up, as local boys and title defenders Morning Star went up against Shakers FC. It was Morning Star who started in control, with goals from Arnaud Soudachan and Karl Ward. In the second half, Shakers took the pace up a notch in an attempt to turn the tide. They succeeded in pulling back a goal with a well taken effort by Pedro Carrera, but the last 15 minutes were a stalemate, and Morning Star were finally rewarded with a close 2-1 victory.

Holiday Inn FC v Nanai Boys: 1 – 2 

The last match of the evening was between bottom sides Holiday Inn and Nanai Boys. Holiday Inn were looking to extend their recent good form, while Nanai Boys were still after their first win of the season. Holiday Inn took the lead, but Nanai Boys pulled one back before the break. In the second half the game became physical with several yellow cards given out, as both teams were eager for points. But it was Nanai Boys who clinched a late goal, rewarding them with a 2-1 win – their first this year.
