City led the match 1-0 at half time after Clifford Murphy’s goal before turning on the power in the second half and making the score 8-1.

Kurt Peterson scored three goals, while Karl Pereira scored another three and from Nigel Bailey and Anton Bellairs added one each.

Third place Mahle Old Grey also had a big win over Priory. Richard Clarke scored twice and Wayne Blochlinger added another to put Old Grey up 3-0 at half-time. Clinton White added their fourth, while Clarke scored a peanut and Blochlinger a goal in the second half.

Shamrocks returned to their winning ways with a 5-2 win over NMBM.
