Reds into third on E-League ladder: E-League Round 3 wrap


FUTWIZ Jamie and vDreaMz--Shooter have won their second E-League match in a row to put the Reds into third place on the E-League ladder.

In other matches, Melbourne City edged a nerve-jangling first instalment of the Melbourne Derby as the E-League ladder began to take shape in Round 3.

Both legs of each fixture were played simultaneously to account for a delayed start time, adding a new layer of intrigue to proceedings.

But there was no trepidation for Sydney FC's in-form pair, mimicking their Hyundai A-League counterparts by surging to the top of the table.

Xbox: James 'iCripsy' Williams 1-2 Jamie 'FUTWIZ Jamie' O'Doherty

Jamie O'Doherty recovered from an early deficit to inflict a 2-1 defeat on James Williams, his first in the competition.

After trading jabs in the lead-up, it was Williams who landed an early blow with a third-minute opener for Roar.

O'Doherty quickly hit back to equalise on 20 minutes and was suddenly ahead on the half-hour.

That lead proved enough as the Adelaide man had his crossbar to thank for keeping out what would have been a late equaliser, securing him a second successive victory.

 

PS4: Dino 'ol_Mate_' Flocco 1-2 Zachary 'vDreamz-Shooter' May-Burgess

Zachary May-Burgess made it back-to-back E-League wins with a well-earned 2-1 victory over Roar representative Dino Flocco.

Fresh off a maiden success last week, May-Burgess grabbed the first inside 20 minutes and added a second from the penalty spot just before the break.

Flocco did pull one back in stoppage time, but it was to be nothing more than a consolation.
