Hellenic’s recent good form has enabled Neven Payne and his troops to leapfrog several rivals to share the top spot with Glendene United in the Safa Western Cape Regional ABC Motsepe League.

The affectionately nicknamed “Greek Gods” set the cat among the pigeons when they recorded a 3-0 victory against newcomers Atlantic Nacional at the UCT astraturf field over the weekend.

Hellenic also secured a well-deserved point from their mid-week away clash against Steenberg United, playing to a goalless draw at the Philippi stadium.

The four points from two matches has propelled Hellenic to 21 points from 10 outings, which mirrors that of Glendene United.

United did not find the going easy in their home game and drew 2-2 with Ajax Cape Town, while Steenberg United dropped more valuable points when they played to a 2-2 draw with the Central Karoo outfit Barcelona.

The Steenberg side is placed third on the standings with 20 pints from nine matches while Ikapa Sporting, who edged out Ramblers FC 1-0, occupy fourth place with 19 points from nine matches.

Nonetheless, Hellenic never looked in danger against Atlantic Nacional and held a 2-0 lead at the break, following a brace from Fabian Wareley.

Though the visitors were full of running in the second half they gradually ran out of steam before the final whistle – they never really looked like scoring, with their shots directed all over the turf.

However, Alfonso Fraser grabbed the third goal after some nippy footwork that put the result to bed with a convincing win.

ABC Motsepe League results:

Hellenic 3, Atlantic Nacional 0; Zizwe United 1, Crystal Palace 0; Glendene United 2, Ajax Cape Town 2; The Magic 2, Mitchell’s Plain United 1; RC Athletico 4, Black Cats 0; Steenberg United 2, Barcelona 2; Grassy Park United 2, Milano United 1; Ikapa Sporting 1, Ramblers 0; Glendene United 1, Atlantic Nacional 0; Ikapa Sporting 1, RC Athletico 0; Steenberg United 0, Hellenic 0.
