Mayhem ends Ya Yas streak

Ring the solemn church bell. Let Dino Sita pay the cost. The honking cars are silent, as the undefeated Ya Yas have lost.

After Ya Yas ended Blazers' streak last year and won their pizza, the hunter has become the hunted, as the Ya Yas streak ended last Sunday on two goals from Mayhem's Stephanie Ross.

While some teams are motivated by tough love or by inspirational testimonials, and even though diamonds are supposedly a girl's best friend, when it comes to getting the gals going on Marshall Mayhem, say it with pizza.

In other women's league action, Fusion kept it close with Sitas, losing 2-0 on goals from Kendra Graham and Shelbi McDonnell.

In the men's league, it was 4-1s all round, with Wolves supplying the Ted Dixon victory over Ridgepoint Bruins.

The top seeds arrived in first, but left in second place after the lumbering Bruins were knocked back a step from the concentrated Wolf-pack attack. Bruins' striker Calem 'Mav' Carmichael may have the instincts of a fighter pilot and be used to shooting nets to shreds, but until the ailerons in his left knee are repaired, he'll continue to splutter around like a riddled Red Baron.

Wolves' goals were scored by Jeremy Hudson with a pair and singles from Rick Timothy and Junior Dixon.

Halfmoon Bay were on their heels with Pender as Colin Bradleyand Glenn Haffey put them up by two, but Paul Van Wersch put it back in reach, only to have Josh Beaulieu save his penalty with two more Halfmoon Bay goals coming from Bradley and Jesse 'Antz in His Pants' Morantz ending the match 4-1.

At Cliff Gilker, Sitas' Mike Brown went bounding like a spring gazelle after being sprung by long ball passes, going toe-to-toe in defensive end foot races with CPU fullbacks, each of whom afterwards looked up towards the sub bench in panting lathers.

CPU wiry winger Simon Hocking went face first into the quagmires of tangled legs to emerge with the ball. CPU's four goals in the win came with a pair from Eoin Walker, and singles from Martin Blackwell and Ken Campbell, with Sitas' goal from Richard Watson.
