Every time a Division 1 team wins the Robert Walters TOTW award I always seem to talk about how open the league is. This weekend was no different and this report will go along these usual lines.....Division 1 is wide open.
Pumas defeated Celts 7-1 which was impressive, Swiss finally got a team together and defeated Zion 5-2, FCI continued their good form but this weeks TOTW award goes to Panthers FC.
It's been all change for them this season with a new manager and many new players. Saturday saw them at full strength for the first time this season for their game against BFC Tokyo.
Panthers took an early 2 goal lead, Kensuke Toda scoring both goals. Early in the 2nd half BFC scored from a lovely free kick. Panthers continued to play on the front foot and Toda completed his hat trick. BFC scored a late goal but Panthers held on to win 3-2.
Special mention to Antonio who played his last game before departing Japan. A good send off for him.
Well done to Panthers for winning this weeks Robert Walters TOTW, bring on top of the league Pumas this weekend!
