The gameweek started with a Lincoln side, perhaps not playing at their best, beating Lions 3-1. Goals from George Cabrera, Roy Chipolina and Bernardo Lopes won it for Lincoln, with Juan Manuel Llaves scoring for Lions. For Lincoln, they opened up an eight point gap at the top of the league after seven games, while Lions sit in fifth after a balance started to the season.

On Thursday, Manchester salvaged a 1-1 draw against Gib Phoenix, courtesy of an 87th minute screamer from Jorge Junco, after German Cortes had given Phoenix a first half lead. The two sides are eighth and ninth respectively, but Phoenix opened up a five point gap on Manchester after they won a re-arranged fixture on Monday.

Europa kept up their recent revival in form by beating Lynx 2-0, with the strike partnership of Kike and Enrique Carreno both scoring in the win, which saw Europa move up to fourth, 11 points off the top albeit with a game in hand. Meanwhile, Lynx’s mini-revival of their own came to a hault; they remain bottom, behind Manchester on goal difference.

The first part of Saturday’s double-header saw a somewhat surprise result as Mons Calpe overturned St Joseph’s 3-1.  Mons, the better team on the day, won courtesy of a brace from Rodrigo Cerrilla and a finish from Manu Camacho. Saints, who ended with 10 men after David Parra’s red card, had made it 2-1 courtesy of Fran Mejias, but they remain third, while Mons find themselves sixth.

The final match of the gameweek saw Glacis defeat 9-man Gib United 2-0 courtesy of goals from Albi Gonzalez and Mahamud Sidi. The first red card was shown at 0-0 to Aymen Elghobashy for an alleged headbutt, while at 2-0 and with the game gone Filipe Aguiar picked up a second yellow for a rash challenge. Gib United stay second but now are eight points off the top, while Glacis move to seventh after a key win for them.
