Newly promoted Stare Byki FC made it three wins in a row on Sunday, dispatching Das Magic 3:1 at Oak Brook. The Byki, affected by injuries, could only field ten players. Their disciplined defensive stance held off Das Magic in the first half, despite Das Magic seeing far more of the ball.
The Byki struck twice within three minutes to open the second half. Joe Sauerman ran free in the box to slip one past Das Magic keeper Reed Sheehan. Dmytro Korinenko made it 2:0 in the 56th minute with a blast that deflected into the goal.
Das Magic pounced on a weak Byki clearance in the 67th minute to pull one back. But the Byki put the result beyond doubt 15 minutes from the end through Matt Tutich.
Gazelle SC downed SAC Wisla 2:0 on Sunday at River Rd. Although Wisla enjoyed many extended periods of ball possession, it was Gazelle who were the better marksmen. They took the lead after 20 minutes after catching Wisla on the break.
That goal would prove to be enough and the visitors added a second in the 75th minute to ensure the victory. Gazelle have won both of their matches so far and have yet to concede a goal.
Vikings AA won for the first time on Thursday, following two draws to open the season, when they beat up on CKS Warta 5:3 at Hawthorne. For Warta, they are without a point after three rounds.
It was a fairly even contest at the start, but Vikings looked more dangerous on quick breakaways and counterattacks, knocking home two in the first 17 minutes.
Warta clawed their way back via Eddie Saucedo's goal in the 39th minute, but the Vikings restored their two-goal advantage just before halftime, converting a set-piece opportunity.
Warta's task became more difficult when Tadeo Gonzalez was sent off ten minutes into the second half.
Vikings took full control when they knocked home a fourth in the 65th minute.
Luis Adame got Warta back to within 4:2 in the 77th minute, and Vikings put the three points in the bank with a clinching goal two minutes from the end.
RWB Adria downed AAC Winged Bull 4:1 on Thursday on the strength of two goals from Taylor Bond. Adria needed just ten minutes to get on the board through Bond, and then Qudas Lawal increased the lead to 2:0.
Derek Huffman struck in the 55th minute to make it 3:0. Winged Bull tried to make a game of it with a goal from Steve Younus coming on the counterattack.
Bond sealed the result for Adria with his second goal, coming on 70 minutes.
Piotr Sliwa had a tidy evening in goal, conceding just once.
