BTM League Last Round Of League Matches Played.
By Richard Beale………
Despite the scorching heat and soaring temperatures our local footballers continue to try to entertain us. The last round of League matches have been played and the “play offs” for the lucky teams will be held over the next two weekends. And thus in the middle of July the local football season will eventually finish !.
Our 2 teams in the Esentepe area, Bahçeli and Tatlısu had mixed fortunes.
BTM Group 1 :
Result : YEDIKONUK SK 1 TATLISU SERACILLAR SK 4
Match played on Sunday 4th July at Neutral venue Maraş Stadi.
This match was switched to a neutral venue at the last minute, due to the riot that took place between these 2 teams a month ago. Tatlısu needed to win and hoped that leaders Kumyalı would slip up at home against Yeni Erenköy/Yesilköy.
In the end a much changed Tatlısu did the business , but unfortunately for them Kumyali won their final match 1-0 to go through to the quarter finals.
Scorers : TATLISU : Ümit (43) and (88), Turgay (65), Hakan (90). YEDIKONUK : Doyuhan (85).
BTM Group 3 :
Result : GORNEÇ SK 6 BAHÇELI SK 1.
Group winners Gorneç hammered Bahçeli to go through to the quarter finals. Gorneç’s burly striker ARDA scored all 6 goals for the home team. Cemre scored a consolation goal for Bahçeli.
THANK YOU TO ALL PLAYERS OF BOTH TATLISU AND BAHÇELI FOR PROVIDING US WITH EXCELLENT ENTERTAINMENT DURING THE SUMMER.
The seven group winners will now go through to the quarter finals (Kumyalı, Çanakale, Ortaköy, Akincilar/Vadili, Akçay, Gorneç and Yilmanköy. The 8th team is Yildirim being the highest 2nd place team based on points
