Cosumarite Domestic Sports

This topic is for posts regarding the various domestic sporting leagues and events throughout Cosumar and its puppet nations. Readers may post brief comments as long as they are related (no discussions/arguments). Questions should be relayed to me via TG or IRC.


I have been running Cosumarite domestic leagues for Association Football and American Football since shortly after I became an active member of the NS Sports community in the summer of 2010. In 2014, I finally decided it was about time that my domestic leagues had their very own forum thread. Up until then I'd simply kept giant Excel spreadsheets with all my results and changes, aside from posting in the International Newswires, when applicable. Managing these Excel files became tedious, and I thought posting everything on the Forum would be a lot more fun and encourage me to stay up-to-date on all my leagues and not slack off on them as I may have occasionally done in the past. But most of all, I wanted the rest of the community to be able to view my work more accessibly.

Harlighet Ligan History

Postby Cosumar » Mon Aug 25, 2014 4:47 pm

Image


The Fiefdom Soccer Federation (FSF) is the governing body of Cosumar's domestic soccer leagues. It also manages Cosumar's delegations for various international competitions, such as the World Cup, AOCAF, Olympic Games, and U-21/18 events. The FSF was formed in the year 983 (Cosumarite calendar) to bring a single structure to our various loosely organized leagues. With the goal of turning Cosumar into an internationally respectable soccer destination, the newly-founded FSF created three top divisions of sixteen teams each (Harlighet Ligan [1], Sekundar Ligan [2], and Tredje Ligan [3]). Two teams relegated/promoted from each based on the results of each 30-game season. Below these three top leagues, the FSF splinters into various regional lower leagues (Lagre Ligans).

The current Cosumarite year is 998, the fifteenth anniversary of the FSF's formation. It has grown into the largest and most popular sporting league in Cosumar. Harlighet Ligan matches frequently draw crowds of 100,000. Top Cosumarite clubs such as OAS Royal FC and Mallox have become lucrative brands across Atlantian Oceania. Cosumarite clubs have not been able to sustain consistent UICA success due to the lockouts and restructurings that have periodically disrupted the FSF's operation. Everything appears to be ironed out now, however, and the FSF looks poised to make huge strides towards becoming a top international league. The current FSF President is Tomas Navarro. Below is a chronicling of all Harlighet, Sekundar and Tredje Ligan season results up to this point.

Season I (983)

In the inaugural FSF season, OAS Royal FC took home the Championship, becoming Cosumar's first official domestic champion and club to enter in the TakilQuil Cup of Champions. Royal's triumph was not much of a surprise, being projected to finish in the top two slots since before the season started. Only one point behind OAS Royal was Mallox, a squad that was quite the surprise at the time. Little did we know it was the beginning of a dynasty.

After the season, OAS Royal FC was invited to participate in the Tenth Aeropag Football Invitational, in which they placed 5th. In UICA play, none of the Cosumarite teams advanced very far likely due to inexperience.

Season II (984)

OAS Royal FC won their second straight FSF Championship and TQCC berth. OAS had a great season and amassed nearly 70 points, although they were closely trailed by Mallox the entire time, similar to Season I. The same four teams represented Cosumar in the CC and GC as Season I - the only difference was FC Kaldukosic and Eastweald switching places.

Ramusok United nearly reached their first Globe Cup appearance but were short by 2 points. Surprisingly, Harlighet Ligan newcomer Real Azuris fared very well in the increased competition and finished in the top half of the table. Fort Archer was sent back to Sekundar Ligan after an abysmal 16 point Harlighet Ligan debut. Joining them was (somewhat unexpectedly) two original Harlighet Ligan members, Stoneshore United and Zakhoro Aces.

In UICA play, OAS Royal FC became the first Cosumarite club to advance past qualifying into the group phase of the Globe Cup.

Season III (985)

Mallox dominated the third Harlighet Ligan season, becoming the first team besides OAS Royal FC to be named champion. Klyde FC qualified for its first Globe Cup. Starting with this season, only two teams were to be promoted and relegated per league to provide more stability. Nevertheless, Cassandra City came shockingly close to disaster after suffering through a nightmare of a season with leading scorer Luke Crisalus sidelined with injuries after MD6. In UICA play, Mallox advanced to the Round of 32 of the Globe Cup.

Season IV (988) [There was no 986 or 987 due to financial difficulties]

After a two year break from Harlighet Ligan football, the clubs stacked up surprisingly similar to how they did in 985. OAS Royal FC seemed rejuvenated under new manager Oscar Jain. The Breakers of Real Azuris were the surprise team, narrowly missing their first Globe Cup berth. No noteworthy Cosumarite performances in the UICA that year.

Season V (989)

In the fifth Harlighet Ligan season, OAS Royal returned to the top of the table for the first time since 984. Ramusok United rebounded from a poor effort in Season IV thanks to a terrific season from goalkeeper Tomi Koskinen (league MVP). Cassandra City also had a rebound year, but at the expense of Eastweald, which dropped to 10th - its worst finish yet. Fort Archer finally managed to stay in Harlighet for more than one season, avoiding relegation due to a dramatic tiebreaker with Morponte Fief on the final day.

Kaldukosic's Leviathan Arena missed out on hosting the Champions' Cup by one vote on this year. Zakhoro Aces made it to the group stage of the SBCC.

Season VI (992) [Due to a lockout dispute, there was no 990 or 991 season]

Once Harlighet Ligan play finally resumed, Mallox picked up where they left off and took the League Title for the third time. Cassandra City advanced to its first ever Globe Cup. CC's success was a huge surprise, having never finished in the top half of the table before. Former power Eastweald continued its downward spiral, missing the Globe Cup for third consecutive season with a perfectly mediocre 10-10-10 record.

AC Holmenkollen advanced to the Round of 16 of the Series B Champions Cup, the farthest a Cosumarite team had ever advanced in a UICA tournament, though they were forcibly booted out 4-1 by the eventual champions, Turori's Kionao Locals.

Season VII (993)

In the season the marked the tenth anniversary of the FSF, OAS Royal FC took the League Title for the fourth time in seven years with a record-shattering 76 points, while traditional power Eastweald will advance to its first Globe Cup in over a decade. The Golds' success was a moderate surprise, having been steadily declining over the past few years. Projected to finish near the top of the table, FC Kaldukosic once again finished surprisingly low at 8th while Cassandra City proved last year's 2nd place finish wasn't a fluke with another strong season.

The Klyde Sportsplex was once again close to hosting a UICA competition, placing 3rd in the host vote for the SBCC. In the Champions' Cup, OAS Royal FC knocked out favorites Royal Khaldoon (QPM) to advance to the group stage. They placed third in the group and were later eliminated in the Round of 32 of the Globe Cup by the Sonoma Center Panthers of Commerce Heights.

Season VIII (994)

Ramusok United did the seemingly impossible, becoming the first club not named OAS Royal or Mallox to win the Harlighet Ligan. The defensive trio of Tomi Koskinen, Kirum Mortonsson and Jonatan Stuttgart was virtually unbreakable. No major surprises elsewhere, besides Kaldukosic underachieving as usual.

In the UICA world, The Klyde Sportsplex once again came within a few votes of hosting the SBCC, finishing 2nd. Pelethas United advanced to the group stage of the SBCC, but went winless.

*Due to a fiefdom-wide renaming and restructuring of governing districts, many clubs merged or re-branded. The previous seasons above already reflect these changes for the sake of viewer continuity. The FSF also completely restructured. There was no 995 or 996 Harlighet Ligan Season.

However, the UICA qualifiers from 994 were sent again in 995. The Zakhoro Aces advanced to the group phase of the SBCC and nearly advanced.





Season IX (997)

OAS and Mallox seem to finally be relinquishing their unrelenting grip on the Harlighet Ligan, allowing another club to earn its first League Title for the second consecutive season. This time it was Klyde FC who shocked pundits, featuring a well-balanced team with GK Blinne Va'Taurus and RB Tae Woo Miyori dominating in the back and FW Jacques Bourbon and MF Fraz'm'nar Gor of Glaser combining for 33 goals. Giovanni Aldinne also led Real Azuris to a wondrous 2nd place finish, the former Sekundar Ligan side's highest ever. It was a crazy season all-around, with shocking results each week. That's what two years off will do to a league. FC Kaldukosic finished disturbingly low at 11th - inexcusable for a club that spends as much as they do.

It was a dismal performance for Cosumar in the UICA tournaments, with only Klyde FC and AC Holmenkollen advancing past the third preliminary round.

Sekundar Ligan History

Overview of Past Winners:
I: Real Azuris
II: Dawchire Town
III: Versiaville
IV: Morponte Fief
V: Zakhoro Aces
VI: AC Holmenkollen
VII: West Gundar FC
VIII: Zakhoro Aces (2)

2 - Zakhoro Aces
2 - AC Holmenkollen
1 - Real Azuris
1 - Dawchire Town
1 - Versiaville
1 - Morponte Fief
1 - West Gunar FC



Season I (984)

In the first Sekundar Ligan season, Real Azuris proved that they deserved to play among Cosumar's best; winning the Sekundar Ligan, a promotion, and a berth to the Series B Champions' Cup. Centus FC and Fort Archer also earned a promotion taking 2nd and 3rd place respectively. Olask's success was a bit of a surprise, as many believed FSF should've assigned them to start in Tredje Ligan. Conversely, two highly-touted clubs in Klyde Heritage and Dusk Athletic failed to live up to their high expectations. Current 1st division side AC Holmenkollen, IFK Aldenskoett, and Sarmon United finished in the bottom three and were relegated to Tredje Ligan.

In the Series B Champions Cup, none of the Cosumarite teams advanced very far likely due to inexperience.

Season II

Dawchire Town and Atletisk Surpronuk will both be returning to Harlighet Ligan next year, after being relegated in season 1. These two FSF blue-bloods largely dominated the Ligan, along with repeat SBCC participant the Olask Islanders. Morponte Fief came in 4th, becoming the first original Harlighet Ligan club to get stuck down in the Sekundar for more than one season.

In UICA play, Atletisk Surpronuk became the first Cosumarite club to advance past qualifying and into the group phase of the Series B Champions Cup.

Season III (985)

Versiaville surprised Zakhoro Aces and Morponte Fief and took first place, earning their first ever promotion and first ever UICA qualification. The projected champions, Zakhoro Aces and Morponte Fief, finished 2nd and 3rd respectively, both qualifying for the SBCC. For the second straight season, Morponte Fief missed out on a promotion by one spot. Pardock Island and Treftadaeth Alliance were relegated back to Tredje Ligan after their first season in Sekundar.

*Due to financial difficulties, FSF had no 986 or 987 season*

Season IV (988)

Once season play resumed after two years, Morponte Fief won the SL crown and will finally be returning the Harlighet Ligan after a 3 season (=5 year) absence. Fort Archer finished second and also earned a promotion back to Harlighet Ligan, also after a 3 season absence. Present-day Harlighet side West Gundar FC qualified for their first UICA tournament. Atletisk Surpronuk, projected champions, finished alarmingly low at 7th place. Stoneshore United and Klyde Heritage also underachieved. Keenan Athletic and Pelethas United were relegated, while newcomer Fevelo United (the first club from one of Cosumar's extraterrestrial colonies to play in the Sekundar Ligan) just barely managed to evade relegation.

Season V (989)

Zakhoro Aces won the SL crown and will be returning to Harlighet Ligan after being relegated last season. Versiaville finished in 2nd and also earned promotion back to Harlighet Ligan, also after being relegated last season. Dusk Athletic qualified for their first UICA SBCC just one season removed from the Tredje Ligan. The Crusaders struggled and were relegated to Tredje Ligan for the first time in club history.

Due to a lockout dispute, FSF held no season in 990 or 991

Season VI (992)

AC Holmenkollen and Nomad Brotherhood earned their first ever Harlighet Ligan promotions and SBCC berths, while seemingly permanent Sekundar Ligan sides Pardock Island and FC Sven fell short of promotion once again, but played in the SBCC. Atletisk Surpronuk was shockingly relegated to Tredje Ligan - a huge blow to a once proud first division club.

Season VII (993)

West Gundar FC earned its first ever Harlighet Ligan promotion. Former longtime Harlighet club Stoneshore United finally made its return after several years in Sekundar. Seasoned Sekundar squads Pardock Island and Fort Archer fell short of expectations and did not even contend for a SBCC berth. Regela United became the second club from a Cosumarite extraterrestrial colony (after Fevelo United) to survive a season in the Sekundar Ligan.

Due to a fiefdom-wide renaming and restructuring of governing districts, many clubs disbanded or merged. FSF also completely restructured. No 995 or 996 season. The Sekundar Ligan returned in full force for a ninth season in 997.

Season IX (997)

AC Holmenkollen shocked the world by winning the Sekundar Ligan crown just one season removed from the Tredje Ligan. West Gundar FC returned to Harlighet Ligan play after just one-season pit stop in Sekundar. The two-year layoff seemed to really hurt the Centus Serpents, who couldn't shake the rust off all season and dropped eight places from their third place finish last season. FC Flen was relegated for the first time in club history.

Season I (983)

In the first ever Tredje Ligan season, Pelethas United ran away with 1st place and a promotion to Sekundar Ligan. Pelethas United was very impressive, dominating most of the teams on a consistent basis. Fevelo United also overachieved, stealing the 2nd place spot and a promotion in lieu of their fourth place projection. Preseason favorite Treftadaeth Alliance had a solid season, finishing 3rd and earning the final promotion spot despite failing to meet expectations. Pardock Island, which was expected to be relegated, shocked all of Cosumar by coming within 1 point of a promotion. Nuur Origins FC, Varvonti Firestorm, and Sporting Pirankoper were all relegated to the lower leagues.

Cosumarite Lacrosse League (CLL) -- Season I

What is now the CLL once consisted of just six struggling franchises when it was founded 20 years ago, and only had twelve member teams six years ago. In the short time since, lacrosse's popularity has risen rapidly thanks in part to Cosumar's sustained success in the World Lacrosse Championships. With this sudden boom in demand for lacrosse, the old lacrosse league has been reformed into the CLL and numerous expansion teams added (now 24 teams total). Most major markets in Cosumar now have a lacrosse presence. Though the CLL's attendance and TV ratings are still dwarfed by soccer (FSF) and american football (CFA), its surging popularity and high level of play have made Cosumar something of an international leader for the sport.

League Format: 24 teams, half in Eastern and half in Western Conference. Single round robin season. Top 12 advance to a single-elimination playoff for the CLL Championship (called the Silver Cup). Seeds 1-4 have first round byes.

Here are the final regular season standings:

Just like the Cosumarite Lacrosse League (CLL), the Cosumar Basketball Association (CBA) has completely reorganized itself for the 998 season. Eight new expansion teams have been added (four in each conference) and court measurements and official rules have been altered to bring Cosumar in line with international standards. This will allow to Cosumar to begin sending CBA teams to IUBC competitions. Since so much has changed, the CBA is wiping the slate clean and will begin anew. Hence, this season will be Season I of the new Cosumar Basketball Association.

Following the RL NBA model, the CBA consists of 32 teams with 16 in each conference (Eastern and Western). After a season of 62 games, the top eight teams in each conference will advance to a playoff for the CBA Title. Best of 7 series in the playoffs. Here's how the season turned out:

LEAGUE CYCLE X PREVIEW

LEAGUE CYCLE X PREVIEW

The excitement of the World Cup is dying down, and it's time to turn our attention back to Cosumarite domestic play. The Fiefdom Soccer Federation will embark on its 10th season this year and looks poised to give us one of its most exciting seasons yet. The Cosumarite National Team stars will go back to their separate clubs, joined by an influx of foreign talent. The Halighet Ligan is fully of questions....will Mallox or OAS Royal FC take back the spotlight, will Klyde FC repeat, or will a new club win its first Championship for the third consecutive season? Which Sekundar Ligan and Tredje Ligan underdogs will win over the Fiefdom's hearts in their quest for unlikely promotion? Keep reading for TheCourier.cos' exclusive Season X Preview. We'll give you team-by-team analysis, predictions, and more!






Image



Overview of Past Winners:
I: OAS Royal FC
II: OAS Royal FC (2)
III: Mallox
IV: Mallox (2)
V: OAS Royal FC (3)
VI: Mallox (3)
VII: OAS Royal FC (4)
VIII: Ramusok United
IX: Klyde FC
X: _______???



KLYDE FC
Klyde City, North Klyde Fief

Image
Image
Nickname: The Doves
Founded: 649
Ground: The Klyde Sportsplex (88,000)
Manager: Jorginho Bulle
Team Captain: RB Tae Woo Miyori. Top Scorer Last Season: FW Jacques Bourbon (19)
Preview: Klyde FC winning the Harlighet Ligan last season was no fluke. In retrospect, it's a wonder that no one saw it coming. The Doves have slowly built a remarkably complete and well-balanced team. Tae Woo Miyori is the best back in Cosumar, and combines with veteran GK Blinne Va'Taurus to form a strong defensive unit. On the other side of the pitch, the combination of Jacques Bourbon and Glaser's Fraz'm'nar Gor proved to be a quietly efficient goal-scoring combination all season, with the two combining for 33 of the team's 50 goals. Jorginho Bulle's team also improved over the offseason with the addition of Benjamin Clucke from Mangolana sure to bolster their already-strong midfield featuring talented youngsters Kaspian and Simmalton. With their success last season, the Doves have built something of a rabid "bandwagon" fanbase, so The Sportsplex should be rocking all season. It will be tough to defeat them at home. Klyde FC has few weaknesses and will finish near the top of the league again. However, I don't see them repeating - they just don't have the necessary creative firepower.....they will end up with a few too many draws that should've been wins.
Last Season: Champions (17-8-5). Prediction: 2nd.


REAL AZURIS
Azuris, South Klyde Fief

Image
Image
Nickname: The Breakers
Founded: 962
Ground: Masemor Stadium (42,243)
Manager: Akira Eld
Team Captain: MF Giovanni Aldinne. Top Scorer Last Season: Ipier Ubuntu (23)
Preview: Unlike Klyde FC, The Breakers' unexpectedly high finish last season was a fluke. Don't get me wrong, Real Azuris is a quality side, but there are at least three or four significantly better teams this year. Club centerpiece Giovanni Aldinne, while still great, continues to get older and frailer and they've yet to find a suitable replacement. Ipier Ubuntu broke out last year as a prolific goal scorer, but there's no one else in their attack that scares me. Now that teams know to gameplan against Ubuntu, others will have to step up sometimes. Akira Eld has done a phenomenal job transforming Real Azuris into a respected Harlighet Ligan club (remember where they were 10 years ago?) but there are some roadblocks that prevent them from making it back to UICA competitions this year (such as losing 2 of their 4 starting defenders). It will be a bit of an off year for the Breakers,
but they'll still finish in the top half.
Last Season: 2nd (17-3-10). Prediction: 7th.


MALLOX
Mallox Township, Gellano Fief

Image
Image
Nickname: The Tigers
Founded: 804
Ground: Orange Palace (35,700)
Manager: Alvin Burnsides
Team Captain: CB Franz Rowgedeb; Top Scorer Last Season: Anders Engström (26)
Preview: The Tigers have three Härlighet Ligan championships to their name as well as five 2nd place finishes. Mallox has never finished below the top four of the table. Until they slip, and they haven't yet, I will not bet against them. Known worldwide for their fast-paced, aggressively attacking style, they are an exciting young bunch to watch and have improved a lot since last season. Anders Engström, Harlighet Ligan's top scorer last season, is coming off a productive World Cup and looks ready to lead the league again. The combination of Engström with Jimmy Kelly and Lucas Cabral makes for a truly frightening and dynamic attack. The Tigers will score goals by the dozens this season. Their underrated defense, with top-quality players like Rowgedeb, Kazeera and Keane, will do the rest. Not to mention young Felix Merchison, who many are predicting to be the next great Cosumarite midfielder. They were a little raw last season with a lot of new inexperienced pieces, but I think everything comes together for Alvin Burnsides' reinvented Mallox team this season.
Last Season: 3rd (15-7-8). Prediction: Champions.


RAMUSOK UNITED
Ramusok, Ramusok Fief

Image
Image
Nickname: The Blues
Founded: 751
Ground: Fire River Arena (80,000)
Manager: Alf Durand
Team Captain: GK Tomi Koskinen. Top Scorer Last Season: Gabriel Nowitzki (14)
Preview: Move over OAS Royal, Ramusok United are the big men in town now. Hitherto thought of as the second fiddle in Ramusok, the Blues are finally a better team than their cross-town rivals. OAS still has a couple or three more championships than Ram U, but the Blues are trending up while the Whites seem to be treading water. Alf Durand's club had the best defense in the league last season (allowing only 20 goals all season) and likely will again this season with Koskinen, Mortonsson and Stuttgart all returning. Ramusok United also had a HUGE transfer window headlined by MF Robin Geirsson of Polar Islandstates. Something terrible would have to happen to keep them out of the Globe Cup. They don't have a lot of depth, but if they stay healthy the Blues have a lot of potential.
Last Season: 4th (13-9-8). Prediction: 3rd.


CASSANDRA CITY
Cassandra City, Criscalus Fief

Image
Image
Nickname: The Stars
Founded: 882
Ground: The Amphitheatre (53,120)
Manager: Ron Bromwyn
Team Captain: RAM Francois Renault. Top Scorer Last Season: Bruce Sanchez (18)
Preview: Cassandra City had a productive offseason, bringing in Klaus Minkowski from The Fallenmark Islands, Cosme from Northern Sunrise Islands and Kyle Fleming from Nova Anglicana. Fleming should pair well with Renault and ease some of the burden on the aging superstar. Cosme and Minkowski are good players, but they aren't the impact acquisitions Cassandra City needed to make up for the departure of leading scorer Bruce Sanchez for overseas. Still, the Stars are a quality bunch and should be in the mix for a UICA qualification again. Ace Newman's development is key for CC's future, the young forward had a good showing in the Olympics and looks ready to take that next step. If Newman evolves into the creative finisher Bromwyn thinks he can be, CC might exceed my prediction. One of the best attributes of this team is their depth, they have several subs who could be starters on other teams and lots of young talent on the bench. For now though, the Stars are very good but not quite great...look for them to finish 5th just like last season.
Last Season: 5th (14-6-10). Prediction: 5th.


EASTWEALD
Yambridge, Gellano Fief

Image
Image
Nickname: The Elves
Founded: 704
Ground: Old Weldenskirgen (43,209)
Manager: Henrique Ventura
Team Captain: CB Abdiel Assad. Top Scorer Last Season: Coden Hari (11)
Preview: It is a sad thing to see a club with such a proud history continue to be bogged down by organizational ineptitude and underperformance. Sadly, I see this trend only getting worse this season. The Elves' best players, defenders Endyl Paru and Abdiel Assad, while still great, are all over 32 and injury prone. They aren't succeeding in developing young talent, and they failed to bring any help via transfers. Sure, they got that midfielder Wiggins from Super-Llamaland, but he's hardly the answer to their offensive struggles. Eastweald's defense remains elite (3rd fewest GA) and will keep them from falling too far, but they have got to figure out a way to score more goals. But as of now their starting frontline consists of the "just ok" Coden Hari and a 17 year old with zero previous Harlighet Ligan starts (Otto Rush). Eastweald finishes in the bottom half and goes into full-fledged rebuilding mode after this season.
Last Season: 6th (13-8-9). Prediction: 10th.


MORPONTE FIEF
Mortim, Morponte Fief

Image
Nickname: The Riders
Founded: 856
Ground: OmniTech Park (29,680)
Manager: Grant Bulle
Team Captain: MF Abel Scarloff. Top Scorer Last Season: Curtis Hickory (15)
Preview: Morponte Fief first came up from the Sekundar Ligan four seasons ago and avoided a quick relegation by the skin of their teeth. Since then Grant Bulle has steadily improved his club, cementing The Riders as a consistent threat in the Harlighet Ligan. They don't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. The signing of former National Team star Abel Scarloff was obviously huge for Morponte, as the 35-year-old's leadership and expertise guided them to a highest-ever finish. Though their best two players (Scarloff and Hickory) are over 30, Morponte also has a foundation for the future with one of the best youth academies in the fiefdom. As a result, youngsters like LB Fabian Zavaleta and CM Kyron Everdale are already starting to emerge as reliable starters for the club. Bulle seems to be grooming Everdale to replace Scarloff. The expectations are higher than ever for Bulle's side, but I see the upward trend continuing for The Riders. They're not quite a UICA-quality squad, largely because of their frailty on defense (only 1 starting defender with more than 10 starts in Harlighet Ligan), but they're certainly worthy of a top-half finish this season.
Last Season: 7th (13-7-10). Prediction: 8th


OAS ROYAL FC
Område av Storslagenhet, Ramusok Fief

Image
Image
Nickname: The Whites
Founded: 982
Ground: The Royal Palace (54,000)
Manager: Luke Crisalus
Team Captain: ST Sur Arora. Top Scorer Last Season: Sur Arora (22)
Preview: For the first time in club history, OAS Royal FC lost more matches than it won last season. Oh how the mighty have fallen. But not really. The Whites had a torrid season full of injuries and misfortune, but don't put too much weight into it. Sur Arora, widely considered the best scorer in Cosumar, netted 22 goals last season despite missing a lot of time due to injury. Now back that he is back to full health, and paired with prized acquisition Atlas Yrska of Calorax, the OAS Royal attack should be much improved. Defense was their strong suit last season and will be again this season, Quebec's Jannick Kontiola as well as National Teamers Alexander Pearce and Jon-Perohlin Nodtveit spearheading the back line. While the Whites are extremely strong at defender and striker, they are not as deep or well-rounded as they have been in the past. New starting goalkeeper Jaclyn Maris of Nephara is something of an unknown commodity. They lack a true dominant presence in the midfield. OAS Royal FC will likely make the Globe Cup by virtue of their 5-6 highly-paid stars, but are no longer an undisputed lock to do so.
Last Season: 8th (11-7-12). Prediction: 4th.


CRAWFORD CITY FC
Crawford, Numenvernien Fief

Image
Image
Nickname: The Elephants
Founded: 924
Ground: Orangi Stadium (61,000)
Manager: Rastus Van Daele
Team Captain: CB Philip O'Hair. Top Scorer Last Season: Mikah Andersen (10)
Preview: Watching CCFC's matches last year was like watching grass grow at times, averaging only 0.7 goals per game. I think actual elephants would be more creative on the pitch than the Elephants were at times last season. Nevertheless, the club still manages to sell out Orangi Stadium for every game and their notorious supporters make it one of the liveliest matchday atmospheres in Cosumar. The passionate and loyal fanbase deserves to see success, but CCFC seem like they have been perpetually stuck in the middle of the table since the league's inception. I don't see that changing this season, but there is reason for optimism going forward. The Elephants are the youngest team in the Harlighet Ligan, with not a single player in their 30s besides center back Philip O'Hair. Jakk Winterfyll is the best young goalie in Cosumar, as evidenced by his 30 goals allowed last season (5th in league) and recent international caps in the Olympics. The Elephants' ceiling depends on the performance of Sekundar Ligan star Chad Overstreet, who they brought in to rectify the goals drought in Crawford. Their strong homefield advantage and good defense/goalkeeping will keep them well clear of the relegation zone, but make a run up the table they need someone to score goals - it's that simple.
Last Season: 9th (11-6-13). Prediction: 9th.


STONESHORE UNITED
Port Stoneshore, Stoneshore Fief

Image
Image
Nickname: The Greys
Founded: 771
Ground: Sweethaven Stadium (70,000)
Manager: Wendel Moores
Team Captain: CB Elliott O'Dell. Top Scorer Last Season: Mikka Alpulainen (8)
Preview: Wendel Moores' defense-first philosophy seems to be both saving and stifling this team at the same time. Last season Stoneshore United scored the fewest goals of any returning team (19) but also allowed the fewest (23). Over two-thirds of their matches contained one or zero total goals. Alexander Soarhaven, Elliot O'Dell and Justinian Singleton make one of the best defensive trios in the league. Add in the arrival of Torisakian defensive midfielder Esa Vähälä and the Greys look airtight in the back once again. Adding Estenian striker Yuri Makarov was also a good move. Unfortunately, Stoneshore has very little quality in the midfield, with Chaim Eizenhart being the only projected starter with any Harlighet experience. The club's well-documented (yet inexplicable) financial difficulties have tied Moores' hands when it comes to improving the team. Stoneshore United has managed a decent stay in the Harlighet Ligan this time (three consecutive seasons) but they might not have the personnel to make it four. Unless they have some key players exceed expectations, I foresee them struggling badly this year. They will either relegate or come dangerously close.
Last Season: 10th (11-5-14). Prediction: 13th.


FC KALDUKOSIC
Kaldukosic, Kaldukosic Fief

Image
Image
Nickname: The Champions
Founded: 756
Ground: Leviathan Arena (98,000)
Manager: Alex O'Neill
Team Captain: FW Corey Simmons. Top Scorer Last Season: FW Grenville Antonsson (23)
Preview: It's hilariously ironic that wasted potential (and dollars) has become the mantra of the team known as "The Champions" despite having never actually been champions. FC Kaldukosic has arguably the best set-up of any club in Cosumar. The nicest stadium, the largest urban area all to themselves, an aura of prestige, a billionaire owner with endless pockets........yet they seem to be stuck in a downward spiral. They haven't qualified for the UICA since Season VI, finishing 8th, 8th and 11th (an all-time low) in the seasons since despite having one of the heftiest payrolls. On paper, they look great once again. Corey Simmons is still a fearsome scorer despite getting a little long in the tooth and Grenville Antonsson broke out last season as a reliable young sidekick for him. Cosmo Coppellian is a great young defender who played well in the Olympics. The acquisition of Bennett Perkins from the Zakhoro Aces was a good move, as was the signing of talented Torisakian goalkeeper Karl Tennfjord. The loss of Team Captain and National Teamer Dean Harold McSaunders really hurts, but they replaced him as adequately as possible by landing Steven Bennett, star midfielder from Darvale. FC Kaldukosic is loaded with quality and is an enticing pick to finish highly, but we say that every year. Can Alex O'Neill bring everything together and guide this squad to its fullest potential? If so, they could earn a top five finish. If not, anything could happen and O'Neill will likely be out of a job.
Last Season: 11th (10-8-12). Prediction: 6th.


NA'MALSILLE MARINERS
Na'Ailee, Na'Malsille Fief

Image
Founded: 945
Ground: Varela Road (28,340)
Manager: Knut Rosenthal
Team Captain: FW Ejegefe Na'Safeh. Top Scorer Last Season: FW Ejegefe Na'Safeh (21)
Preview: The Na'Malsille Mariners have never been relegated, but they sure like to give their supporters a scare! They've finished the season within three spots of relegation for each of the past six seasons, and were in the relegation zone halfway through the season for four of those. I suppose Knut Rosenthal deserves some credit for motivating his side to finish strong and stay above the line each season, but word has it that ownership's patience with the eccentric manager is running thin. They want to see the Mariners push for a top-half finish while National Team star and longtime club figurehead Ejegefe Na'Safeh is still in his prime. Na'Malsille has some intriguing up-and-coming talent, but they're just so young! Four teenagers slated for starting positions this season. And though Na'Safeh is a brilliant striker, the Mariners lacked a secondary scoring threat last season. I'm not sure that snapping up CAM Darwyn Lucassen from Yambridge FC was sufficient to address this weakness. They're also the only team currently composed completely of Cosumarite players - not a single foreigner on the roster. Last season was a small improvement - their highest finish since Season V - but it's still not where they want to be. Rosenthal gets the sack if they finish below 12th this season.
Last Season: 12th (10-6-14). Prediction: 11th.


FC SAMOTATH
Samotath, Parougan Fief

Image
Nickname: The Blackhawks
Founded: 845
Ground: Lockwood Memorial Stadium (35,000)
Manager: Casimiro Rosales
Team Captain: CAM Roberto DeCinezo. Top Scorer Last Season: FW Addam Andsman-Savage (25)
Preview: FC Samotath needs to thank its lucky stars that the Mareibat premier league folded prior to this season. Team Captain Roberto DeCinezo pledged his services to Bellight FC of the fledgling league because the 36-year-old was growing weary of the Harlighet Ligan level of play. But when the Mareibat league cancelled the season at the last minute, DeCinezo had no choice but to return from whence he came. I'm frankly baffled that he's "tired" of FSF-level soccer as he had a great showing last season. Anyways, with the lethal scoring duo of DeCinezo and Andsman-Savage reunited, FC Samotath will be a threat to just about anybody again this season. They can score goals on just about anybody - the aggressiveness of their attack is matched only by Mallox. However, unlike Mallox, FC Samotath does not have the quality in the back to make up for it. Right back Emory Gurrevitz was a good offseason addition, he'll be sharp coming off of his role as a substitute in the Olympics, but he's not an instant solution. Their defense was horrendous last season. But the Blackhawks don't need a great defense, they only need one good enough to allow them to outscore the other side. Prized young midfielder Vareza Na'Noni also got snatched up by Polarian club Red Star Severny. While having players in top leagues is good exposure for Cosumar, it does little for the Blackhawks this season.
Last Season: 13th (9-8-13). Prediction: 12th.


ZAKHORO ACES
Zakhoro, Ankortroth Fief
Image
Founded: 888
Ground: Zapt Park (29,400)
Manager: Šimon Holguín
Team Captain: DMF Reuben Hamasaki. Top Scorer Last Season: FW Bennett Perkins (19)
Preview: The Zakhoro Aces are one of those unfortunate clubs that always seem to be bouncing back and forth between the Harlighet and Sekundar Ligans with little stability. They actually managed to stay up last season after winning the Sekundar Ligan the year prior. So here they are, in the bright lights of the Harlighet Ligan for a second consecutive season. Is a third within reach? I doubt it. Even though it was a nice payday, losing leading scorer Bennett Perkins to FC Kaldukosic hurt. The Aces invested that money in...a couple teenagers from Western Borderlands. While it could work out for them in the future, this move does nothing to help their on-field performance this season. Without Perkins, there is no one on their roster that really scares defenses. The Aces also lost key players in the midfield and back line. Captain Reuben Hamasaki is actually the only returning midfielder that started last season's opening match. Šimon Holguín is a fantastic strategic manager and will get the most out of this season's cast of unknown faces, but it may not be enough.
Last Season: 14th (8-9-13). Prediction: 15th, Relegation


AC HOLMENKOLLEN
Holmenkollen, Ramusok Fief
Image
Nickname: Cedars
Founded: 971
Ground: Cedar Road (17,900)
Manager: Martyn Dirchs
Team Captain: DF Neville Bloxham. Top Scorer Last Season: Tormas Alpulainen (14)
Preview: After a one-season absence, the Cedars are back in the Harlighet Ligan. They steamrolled the competition to win their second Sekundar Ligan Championship last season. On paper, AC Holmenkollen doesn't stack up well against the rest of the Harlighet Ligan. Forward Tormas Alpulainen bolted for a payday at Lumberjacks FC of Nova Anglicana and defensive linchpin Ben Seppänen will miss the season with an ACL injury. But this small club from suburban Ramusok is still a feisty bunch with a reputation for punching above their weight, so you have to feel good about their chances to make some noise. The new strike partnership of Dmytro Kurosawa and Cyril Christopherson should score plenty. Martyn Dirchs has spoke highly of new signing MF Vyacheslav Kolen from Fevelo. Neville Bloxham proved his mettle as a quality defender and leader in the Harlighet Ligan last time the Cedars were here. They will lean on his experience again this time.
Last Season: Sekundar Ligan Champions (17-10-3). Prediction: 14th.


WEST GUNDAR FC
Ruminov, Gundar Fief
Image
Nickname: Rugged Men
Founded: 924
Ground: Harmonia Stadium (23,000)
Manager: Peter Honeycutt
Team Captain: CM Jared Flynn. Top Scorer Last Season: ST Alberto Silva (24)
Preview: AC Holmenkollen and West Gundar FC seem to be joined at the tip. The two were relegated together after Season VIII, and then earned promotion together in Season IX. Holmenkollen is the better team of the two right now. Frankly, I was surprised the Rugged Men secured a promotion at all. I thought Samaj FC, Olask Islanders and Centus Serpents were all more prepared for the Harlighet Ligan than they were. Nevertheless, WGFC is in the top-flight once again and will have an opportunity to earn their place. MF Dale Knight seems to be a gem from their youth academy. Jace Todd is a good goalkeeper and should keep the damage down, but it's producing goals that will be the problem for this team. Silva has had phenomenal seasons in Tredje and Sekundar Ligan, but he's never played against Harlighet-caliber defensemen.
Last Season: 2nd in Sekundar Ligan (16-6-8). Prediction: 16th, Relegation

SEASON X - First Third



Image

Here we are, ten games into the tenth Harlighet Ligan season. Mallox has been the team to beat thus far, but little else has gone as expected. Real Azuris is doing a good job of proving last season wasn't fluke, with big wins over Cassandra City and Klyde FC in the last two weeks. Morponte Fief is the surprise overachiever so far, sitting in a Globe Cup slot, but it remains to be seen if they can maintain their hot streak for 20 more matches. Newly promoted side AC Holmenkollen has also fared surprisingly well. They rocketed to a 4-1-2 start but have cooled off slightly since then. The biggest talking point of the first third of the season is Kaldukosic FC's catastrophic struggles. If their 11th place finish last season was a massive disappointment, I wonder what they would call this? The "Champions" currently sit in 15th place with just one win. They still have plenty of time to turn things around, but it's not the start they were looking for.

Biggest matches so far
MD1: OAS Royal FC 1–2 AC Holmenkollen (OAS Royal shocked by newcomers AC Holmenkollen in home opener)
MD2: Mallox 2–0 OAS Royal FC (Jimmy Kelly scores two goals at Mallox wins this classic rivalry game)
MD2: AC Holmenkollen 1–0 Ramusok United (The lowly Cedars sucker-punch another top team)
MD4: AC Holmenkollen 4–5 Cassandra City (Thrilling game won by Cassandra City, Ace Newman nets season's first hat trick)
MD4: Mallox 1–1 Klyde FC (The defending champions walk into Orange Palace and force a draw in stoppage time)
MD4: OAS Royal FC 0–1 Ramusok United (Ram U symbolically defeat their crosstown rivals)
MD6: Zakhoro Aces 3–0 FC Kaldukosic (Kaldukosic's pain is epitomized by a spanking from struggling Zakhoro)
MD6: Mallox 3–0 Real Azuris (Mallox handily wins the first matchup between the two current top clubs)
MD9: Real Azuris 1–0 Klyde FC (The Breakers get the better of their bitter rivals to the delight of ecstatic home crowd)
MD9: Morponte Fief 3–1 Mallox (Tigers surprised by upstart Riders at OmniTech Park)
MD9: FC Samotath 5–5 AC Holmenkollen (Highest-scoring game of season thus far, ten goals in draw)

The Centus Serpents defense has been the story of the Sekundar Ligan so far. Through ten games they have only allowed 3 goals. LB Jukka Lindroos is playing lights out for them. I would be shocked if he's not in a top league overseas next year. Thomas Teverridge and Samaj FC aren't far behind though and will make a strong push for 1st over the rest of the season. Sindo Crusaders are the surprise side of the first third, shoving their way into the promotion conversation with some world class goals from CAM Stian Mac Pharlain. Yambridge FC, projected to finish last, are somehow in 5th at the moment. They haven't played some of the top teams yet though, so they'll likely recede in the long run. Still, 5-1-4 is an impressive record for a team just one year removed from a long stretch in the Tredje Ligan.

Down in the Tredje Ligan, Fort Archer and FC Flen (the clubs relegated from Sekundar Ligan last season) are dominating so far. Ziemelu Skaida and Dawchire Town are also putting valiant bids for promotion. Biggest underachiever so far is Everlong FC, which is currently slated for relegation despite being hyped for a top 5 finish.

SEASON X - Second Third



Image

With 20 of the 30 matchdays behind us, the Harlighet Ligan table is finally starting to shape up. Not only has Real Azuris managed to overtake first place, they've also put some distance between themselves and the rest of the pack. Giovanni Aldinne and Ipier Ubuntu have both had spectacular seasons. Cassandra City and Mallox are neck-and-neck for 2nd, with Ramusok United and OAS Royal tussling for the final Globe Cup spot. Crawford City FC and Morponte Fief are also still in the mix. AC Holmenkollen's dynamite start to the season has fizzled out and they now must fight hard to stay above the relegation line. Kaldukosic FC has finally strung together some respectable performances and seem clear of relegation at 12th, but they're still nowhere near where they wanted to be this season. Na'Malsille Mariners are currently in position for their first ever relegation.

Biggest matches of weeks 11-20
MD11: Real Azuris 0–1 West Gundar FC (Alberto Silva and the Rugged Men silence Masemor Stadium in their best performance of the season)
MD11: Kaldukosic FC 0–4 Klyde FC (Klyde has a field day in Kaldukosic, jumping to 3rd place and sending Kal tumbling to last)
MD12: OAS Royal FC 0–1 Crawford City FC (CCFC pulls off the shocking upset at OAS)
MD13: Morponte Fief 0–8 Cassandra City (Cassandra City scores the most goals of any team this season, embarrassing Morponte Fief in Mortim)
MD14: Mallox 7–3 Zakhoro Aces (The Tigers explode for seven goals in exhilarating shootout with Zakhoro)

Pelethas United and Versiaville, both of whom were in Harlighet Ligan last season, recovered from their slow starts and have gradually wrested back control of the table. The Miners in particular look especially dominant. Samaj FC and the Centus Serpents occupy the final two SBCC slots, though Olask Islanders are right behind them. The league is still very tightly packed - no one is safe yet, nor is anyone out of it.

Sekundar Ligan regulars Fort Archer and FC Flen continue to impose their will on the Tredje Ligan. Goldstaff City and Dawchire Town FC have emerged as the few remaining contenders to possibly challenge them for one of those promotions. Gwynt Tywyll, who many saw as the best of the newly promoted teams, has had a dud of a season and looks destined for relegation back to the Lower Leagues.

SEASON X - Final Third



Image

MD21
Crawford City FC 0–0 West Gundar FC
FC Samotath 3–0 Na'Malsille Mariners
Morponte Fief 1–0 Stoneshore United
FC Kaldukosic 5–1 Zakhoro Aces
Eastweald 0–0 AC Holmenkollen
Real Azuris 3–1 Mallox
Cassandra City 5–4 OAS Royal FC
Klyde FC 0–1 Ramusok United

With only ten games remaining in the season, the stakes are higher than ever and that fact is evident on the field as sides fight tooth & nail for every ball, knowing a single point here or there could make the difference in the season. This is when great teams rise and the rest crack under the pressure. Real Azuris continues to impress, widening their lead and putting Mallox's UICA chances in jeapordy with a 3-1 win over said club. Ipier Ubuntu has been absolutely stellar for The Breakers, he simply can't stop scoring goals. Na'Malsille Mariners got gashed in Samotath, sliding them down into last place. FC Kaldukosic continued their recent resurgence (took long enough) with two goals from Corey Simmons in an exuberant 5-1 whipping of the Aces. Ramusok United went on the road and stole three points from under the nose of the defending champions in Klyde with a golden volley from Robin Geirsson in the 87th minute. The win jumps Ram U into the 3rd place. Cassandra City and OAS Royal FC shared the most exciting game of the week, which the red-hot Stars took five goals to four at home. Cassandra City has been on quite the uptick in the second half of the season and find themselves in second place with nine left to play.

MD22
West Gundar FC 2–0 Klyde FC
Ramusok United 1–1 Cassandra City
OAS Royal FC 4–0 Real Azuris
Mallox 0–0 Eastweald
AC Holmenkollen 3–3 FC Kaldukosic
Zakhoro Aces 0–1 Morponte Fief
Stoneshore United 0–0 FC Samotath
Na'Malsille Mariners 1–0 Crawford City FC

Leaders Real Azuris stumbled against OAS Royal FC, but none of their chasers capitalized on the opportunity. Ramusok United and Cassandra City battled to draw, with Gabriel Nowitzki and Francois Renault scoring for their respective sides, as did Mallox and Eastweald. Klyde FC's woes continued as they surrender a pair of goals to Alberto Silva and WGFC, who are fighting to dig themselves out of relegation. The Rugged Men simply wanted the points more than Klyde did and it showed. Jorginho Bulle needs to find a way to re-motivate his team to defend their title. They're not out of it yet, but they're going to have to play better than they did this week. Morponte Fief quietly advanced to 5th place with a win over Aces, their UICA hopes still strong. Last-place Na'Malsille Mariners also played with a desperate attitude and managed to steal a valuable three points from Crawford.

MD23
Na'Malsille Mariners 1–0 West Gundar FC
Crawford City FC 1–0 Stoneshore United
FC Samotath 5–1 Zakhoro Aces
Morponte Fief 6–1 AC Holmenkollen
FC Kaldukosic 0–0 Mallox
Eastweald 1–0 OAS Royal FC
Real Azuris 0–1 Ramusok United
Cassandra City 4–1 Klyde FC

Morponte Fief continues to look stronger than ever, securing an impressive team win over the Cedars, with six separate players getting on the scoresheet. Now in position for their first ever UICA berth, Morponte have a lot to keep fighting for over the next seven matches. Cassandra City is another team riding high. They followed up their 5-4 win over OAS last week with a statement 4-1 win over Klyde this week. The Doves have been struggling mightily of late, but they're still the defending champions. With Real Azuris falling to Ramusok United at home, the gap between them and Cassandra is now only one point, with Ram U also creeping within striking distance. Mallox is left scratching their heads after a draw with Kaldukosic. The Tigers have played well, but the results just aren't going their way. Barring any surprises, the championship looks like a three-way race between Azuris, Cassandra and Ram U. Of the three, only the Blues have won the Harlighet Ligan before.

MD24
West Gundar FC 2–0 Cassandra City
Klyde FC 1–1 Real Azuris
Ramusok United 0–0 Eastweald
OAS Royal FC 3–3 FC Kaldukosic
Mallox 3–0 Morponte Fief
AC Holmenkollen 4–1 FC Samotath
Zakhoro Aces 0–1 Crawford City FC
Stoneshore United 1–0 Na'Malsille Mariners

Remember what I said last week about it being a three-way race? Scratch that. Only one point was won between all three of those teams this week, allowing Mallox and Crawford to jump right back into the picture with wins. Mallox said "Don't even think about it young'uns, the Globe Cup is OURS" and bumped Morponte Fief from the final UICA slot 3-0. Klyde FC got a much-needed momentum boost by forcing a draw with bitter rivals Real Azuris. West Gundar, proving their will to avoid relegation, prevented Cassandra City from seizing 1st place with a raucous 2-0 home win. AC Holmenkollen exploded for 4 goals against Zakhoro, their first win since MD14.

MD25
Stoneshore United 0–0 West Gundar FC
Na'Malsille Mariners 5–5 Zakhoro Aces
Crawford City FC 2–0 AC Holmenkollen
FC Samotath 3–3 Mallox
Morponte Fief 0–0 OAS Royal FC
FC Kaldukosic 1–1 Ramusok United
Eastweald 1–0 Klyde FC
Real Azuris 5–0 Cassandra City

No major changes in the table this week, as points were shared across the board. The notable exception was Real Azuris' crushing 5-0 defeat of Cassandra City, their primary pursuers. This was a HUGE victory for Real Azuris, as it puts a five-point cushion between them and 2nd place. Giovanni Aldinne, Ipier Ubuntu, Delfinho, and Raphael Martin all scored in the win. The only other decisive result was Eastweald's 1-0 win over Klyde FC at Old Weldenskirgen. This result likely puts the dagger in Klyde's chances for the UICA this season, let alone defending their title. A relegation battle between Na'Malsille and Zakhoro turned into an exhilarating ten-goal affair, with Ejegefe Na'Safeh producing a rare 4-goal performance. The result, however, was inconclusive with the goals splitting up five-a-piece.

MD26
West Gundar FC 0–0 Real Azuris
Cassandra City 0–1 Eastweald
Klyde FC 4–0 FC Kaldukosic
Ramusok United 2–0 Morponte Fief
OAS Royal FC 4–0 FC Samotath
Mallox 0–2 Crawford City FC
AC Holmenkollen 2–1 Na'Malsille Mariners
Zakhoro Aces 2–0 Stoneshore United

What has gotten into West Gundar FC? After spending the entire season in the bottom two, they've stumped both Cassandra City and Real Azuris in the last few matches. They didn't defeat Real Azuris (0-0), but I'll be damned if they didn't outplay the Harlighet Ligan leaders for the majority of the game. Once again though, Cassandra City failed to capitalize on the opportunity, allowing Eastweald to waltz into The Amphitheatre and win 1-0. Klyde FC played angry and took it to Kaldukosic 4-0, but it may be too little too late for the Doves. Ramusok United looked impressive in a 2-0 home win over feisty Morponte Fief, surging into second place behind Real Azuris. Crawford City FC stunned Mallox IN Mallox to leapfrog the Tigers into 4th. The Elephants have overachieved so far this season. Can they keep it up? None of the bottom five or six teams are safe from relegation yet, but AC Holmenkollen did a huge favor for themselves by beating last-place Na'Malsille 2-1.

MD27
Zakhoro Aces 1–0 West Gundar FC
Stoneshore United 0–0 AC Holmenkollen
Na'Malsille Mariners 0–0 Mallox
Crawford City FC 0–1 OAS Royal FC
FC Samotath 0–0 Ramusok United
Morponte Fief 0–1 Klyde FC
FC Kaldukosic 1–0 Cassandra City
Eastweald 0–1 Real Azuris

Eesh, managers are getting really defensive now with only a few matches to go. Not a single game produced more than one goal today. With Real Azuris winning at Old Weldenskirgen it's all but certain they will be Harlighet Champions for Season X. None of the other teams still within got three points this week. Real Azuris is now seven points ahead of Ramusok United (2nd) and nine ahead of Cassandra City (3rd) with only three matches to go. Stranger things have happened, but the Breakers deserve to win. They've been the only truly consistent team in what has been a topsy-turvy and tightly-packed season. We'll see if they can hold on...but more interesting right now are the battles going on for the Globe Cup spots and for the right to stay in the top flight. With the top of the table so tightly packed (besides Real Azuris), any club in the top nine at this point could still burst into the top 4 and make the Globe Cup. As for relegation, it seems likely that two of the following three teams will be making exiting: Na'Malsille (23 pts), West Gundar (23 pts) or Stoneshore United (25 pts). Holmenkollen and Zakhoro aren't in the clear yet either though.

MD28
West Gundar FC 0–1 Eastweald
Real Azuris 0–3 FC Kaldukosic
Cassandra City 3–0 Morponte Fief
Klyde FC 1–4 FC Samotath
Ramusok United 1–0 Crawford City FC
OAS Royal FC 0–1 Na'Malsille Mariners
Mallox 0–0 Stoneshore United
AC Holmenkollen 0–3 Zakhoro Aces

A FC Kaldukosic side with nothing to play for went on the road and thrashed the club fighting for their first ever Harlighet Ligan Championship. It's baffling, but Kal just looked much looser and freer while Real Azuris seemed distracted and sluggish. Second-place Ramusok United took advantage of the Breakers' blunder and secured a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Crawford City FC with a stoppage time goal from Martin Mazida. Ram U now sits four points behind leaders Real Azuris with two matches to play. Real Azuris controls their own destiny but if they stumble, the Blues are in good position to surge ahead. Cassandra City is technically still in contention as well since their 3-0 win over Morponte brings them within six points of the leaders. Traditional powers Mallox and OAS Royal both had a surprisingly tough week, tying Stoneshore and losing to Na'Malsille, respectively, allowing Crawford City to maintain the final Globe Cup slot despite their loss. Eastweald has quietly made a run here in the late part of the season, defeating West Gundar today, and have put themselves within reach of the Globe Cup as well. West Gundar was the only team in the relegation battle to lose this week, seemingly spelling doom for them. But who will join them below the line?

MD29
AC Holmenkollen 5–0 West Gundar FC
Zakhoro Aces 5–1 Mallox
Stoneshore United 0–1 OAS Royal FC
Na'Malsille Mariners 1–1 Ramusok United
Crawford City FC 1–0 Klyde FC
FC Samotath 1–1 Cassandra City
Morponte Fief 0–1 Real Azuris
FC Kaldukosic 1–0 Eastweald

We have a Harlighet Ligan Champion! Fraz'm'nar Gor's goal gave Real Azuris a win in Morponte, while Ramusok United and Cassandra City both tied inferior opponents on the road. Ahead by six points with just one match remaining, Real Azuris has done it! Formerly a nondescript Sekundar Ligan club, Jorginho Bulle has finally managed to take this club all the way to the top of the FSF despite all the naysayers! Congratulations to the Breakers and to all their supporters in Azuris. In other news, AC Holmenkollen send West Gundar FC back to the Sekundar Ligan in embarrassing fashion, with Dmytro Kurosawa scoring his first top-flight hat trick. Somehow a Zakhoro Aces team with nothing to play for managed to dominate Mallox, who is fighting for a UICA berth. Mallox had a phenomenal start to the season and led the table most of the way but has collapsed in uncharacteristic fashion here in the second half. This loss disqualifies them from UICA play this season - the first time Mallox has EVER been excluded from the competitions. Is this season just an aberration or is a sign that the winningest Cosumarite club is finally declining? OAS Royal and Crawford City FC both won today, meaning the final Globe Cup spot will come down to these two teams. CCFC currently leads OAS by two points.

MD30
West Gundar FC 4–1 FC Kaldukosic
Eastweald 0–1 Morponte Fief
Real Azuris 5–1 FC Samotath
Cassandra City 6–1 Crawford City FC
Klyde FC 1–0 Na'Malsille Mariners
Ramusok United 1–0 Stoneshore United
OAS Royal FC 1–1 Zakhoro Aces
Mallox 1–1 AC Holmenkollen

There you have it, another Harlighet Ligan season in the books. Real Azuris cap off the best season in club history with a triumphant 5-1 home win over FC Samotath, to the boisterous crowd's delight. The trophy was presented and a city celebrated. It is the third consecutive season a different club not named OAS Royal or Mallox has won the league. It seems we truly have entered a new era, as neither OAS nor Mallox qualified for the UICA this season either. Representing Cosumar in the Globe Cup will be Ramusok United (2nd), Cassandra City (3rd) and Crawford City FC (4th). This is Crawford's first time to qualify for a UICA competition. They got obliterated 6-1 by Cassandra City in their final game, but the teams behind them didn't win either, so it was still a day of celebration for the club despite the bitter loss. Stoneshore United will join West Gundar in the Sekundar Ligan next year after a two-season stay in the top flight. The Greys fought hard against Ram U to stay up, knowing even a draw would save them, but they just couldn't produce that elusive goal and fell 1-0. Final table below.

The Centus Serpents have won the Sekundar Ligan! Thanks to their impervious defense, they will make their long-awaited return to the Harlighet Ligan after narrowly missing promotion several times. It has been ten years since they last played a Harlighet Ligan match. Manager Angus Howell is hoping the prospect of playing in the top flight entices star left back Jukka Lindroos to stay rather than bolt overseas. Pelethas seemingly had everything under control through twenty games but utterly collapsed down the stretch after team captain Jack Algar went out with an Achilles injury. How unfortunate for them - they will not return to the Harlighet Ligan next season as was expected, though they will play in the SBCC. Versiaville SC, however, will return to the top flight after just a single year in Sekundar. It was an exciting season, neck-and-neck all the way to the finish with the table in flux until the very end.

Fort Archer and FC Flen were obviously still in a Sekundar Ligan state of mind, as they jointly ran away with this one. Both will return to the second-flight after a one-season stay in Tredje. Goldstaff City came closest to upsetting one of the two favorites, but even they were almost ten points away. Young Ross Rowe had a career season for Fort Archer, catching many people's attention, including National Team scouts. Kalloroda United and Gwynt Tywyll were relegated, meaning all four teams that were new to Tredje Ligan are on their way out again.

The Cosumar Football League (CFL) is Cosumar's domestic gridiron football league (simply known as "football" here). It also manages the much smaller Cosumar Arena Football League (CAFL), which serves as something of a developmental minor league for the CFL. The CFL was formed in year 994 of the Cosumarite calendar, uniting the two rival football leagues that had divided Cosumar (the CAF and FFA). The CAF became the "Silver Conference" of the CFL, while the FFA became the "Blue Conference". There is still a huge amount of conference pride and rivalry between the two conferences, which makes the postseason meeting of the two conference champions ("the Dragon Bowl") so much more intense. With 17 teams in each conference, the CFL consists of a total of 34 teams. Teams play each of their conference opponents once, for a 16-game season. Just like the RL NFL, the top six in each conference advance to a 12-team single elimination playoff, culminating with the Dragon Bowl. The CFL is the second-most popular sporting league in Cosumar behind only the Harlighet Ligan of the FSF (soccer). After each season, CFL President Lewis Patrol announces which teams the league has selected to compete in international competitions. This most always includes the Dragon Bowl Champion and runner-up, but sometimes the league's selections for the third and fourth spots lead to controversy.

The current year at the time of this post is 998 and the CFL is set to begin it's fourth season of play very soon. But first, for the sake of context, let us review the history: the results of the first three seasons (years 995-997).



Season I (995)

Ah, the first season in which the historic rival leagues CAF and FFA came together under one banner. It was a beautiful sight to behold. Though fan reaction was mixed to the idea of the two leagues merging at first, the CFL soon won them over once fans saw the traditions, rivalries and spirit of the old CAF and FFA were kept intact. In the inaugural regular season, the Morponte Marauders were a surprisingly dominant team, claiming the first seed over favorites Kaldukosic and Surpronuk. Likewise, in the Silver Conference, the Sarmon Spirit unexpectedly finished 13-3 ahead of traditional powers Ramusok and Helfin. New league, new traditions, I suppose! The Bayford Blue Dragons were the most disappointing, finishing 4-12 despite their strong tradition of success in the CAF.

17 Zakhoro Wolfpack 16 4 12 250 355 −105 12


Wild Card Weekend: 3v6 and 4v5 from each conference. The higher seed won all four games. Jadde vs. Mallox, however, was especially exciting - with the Bruins winning on an interception return for a touchdown in overtime.

Pelethas Thunder 10 10 7 3 30
Samaj Spartans 3 3 10 7 23


Conference Semifinals: 1v4 and 2v3 from each conference. In a shocking weekend of games, the wild card opponents won three of the four games against their higher-ranked opponents. I guess the week off with a bye was a liability more than an advantage. Jadde's dominance of 14-2 Morponte was particularly stunning. Surpronuk's 4th quarter comeback to win againt Kaldukosic was also a highlight of the year.

Conference Finals: 3v4 in the Blue Conference and 2v4 in Silver. A trip to the Dragon Bowl at stake, the Jadde Bruins kick a field goal in the dying seconds of the fourth quarter to break Surpronuk hearts. Was the Bruins' fighting underdog spirit enough to slow down the mighty Kaldukosic Blazers?

DRAGON BOWL I: You bet it was! Tied at halftime, the first Dragon Bowl was a nail-biter. The Jadde Bruins, the 10-6 wild card from the Silver Conference, became the first CFL Champions (and earning smack-talk priviliges for old CAF fans).

Season II (996)

Because it was new and still working the kinks out, the first season was rather tumultuous and the product on the field wasn't always top-notch. The second season brought vast improvement in both these regards, in terms of coordination, fan support and performance. The defending-champion Jadde Bruins proved their postseason run wasn't a fluke with a stellar regular season performance in season 2, going 13-3. Blue Conference favorites Kaldukosic Blazers nearly missed the postseason altogether. The Hagenheim Vagabonds and Helfin Mighty Men made their first playoff appearances in the league. The Morponte Marauders were the regular season champions again, but would they translate that into postseason success this time?

17 OAS Kings 16 4 12 261 407 −146 12


Wild Card Weekend: 3v6 and 4v5 from each conference. Once again, the lower-ranked teams won three of the four games. The Blazers knocking off Pelethas was no surprise, but Sarmon falling to Samaj and Surpronuk to Mallox were shocking results.

Sarmon Spirit 7 3 7 0 17
Samaj Spartans 14 14 0 6 34


Conference semifinals: 1v5 and 2v3 in Silver, 1v5 and 2v6 in Blue. The upper seeds won in Silver, with Jadde emerging victorious in a gritty defensive battle with the Kataklysm and Morponte winning a shootout thriller against Mallox. In Blue, Samaj continued their hot streak by knocking off #1 seed Helfin. The Blazers dominated the Stars in their classic FFA rivalry.

Kaldukosic Blazers 0 3 14 7 24


Conference Finals: 1v2 in Silver, 5v6 in Blue. The defending champions are eliminated. Morponte wins the Silver Conference and Kaldukosic wins the Blue Conference. The Marauders (15-3) and Blazers (13-6) will meet in the second Dragon Bowl, a high-profile match-up between two iconic teams.

Samaj Spartans 3 7 0 10 20

DRAGON BOWL II: The Kaldukosic Blazers avenge their defeat in Dragon Bowl I by winning it this time around. An especially impressive run considering they did it from the #6 seed. They are the second CFL Champions.

Morponte Marauders      7  0  3  0  10
Kaldukosic Blazers 7 10 3 3 23




Season III (997)

The most recently completed season. With two hugely successful season behind it, the league seems stable and firmly cemented in Cosumarite popularity for years to come. TV Ratings and attendance increased yet again, quelling worries that the growing lacrosse following would compete with football for viewership. Morponte produced the best regular season record (14-2) to date, while the Flen Jaguars and Zakhoro Wolfpack became the first teams to finish with fewer than 4 wins. Olask Dolphins, Na'Malsille Venom, and Azuris Anthrax made their first postseason appearances. A Dragon Bowl II rematch seems likely, as the Marauders and Blazers both secured first-seed byes and homefield advantage in the playoffs.

Wild Card Weekend: 3v6 and 4v5 from each conference. 6-seed Olask absolutely steamrolled 13-3 favorites Surpronuk, while Jadde scored all 10 of their points in the fourth quarter to win in their usual dramatically clutch fashion. Pelethas and Na'Malsille both managed to advance despite tough competition.

Conference Semifinals: 1v4 and 2v6 in Silver, 1v4 and 2v3 in Blue. Once again, Morponte chokes in the playoffs despite regular season excellence. The defending champions (Blazers) were also eliminated by a Na'Malsille game-winning touchdown in the final 2 minutes. Sarmon advanced over Pelethas in an evenly-matched but low-scoring affair.

Conference Finals: 2v4 for both conference. Kaldukosic Kataklysm overcame a halftime deficit to prevent Jadde from returning to the Dragon Bowl. Sarmon cruised past Na'Malsille. The third Dragon Bowl will feature the Kataklysm and the Spirit, the first DB appearance for both sides.

Jadde Bruins 6 7 0 0 13

Sarmon Spirit 10 10 3 3 26

DRAGON BOWL III: The 2-seeds from both conference, guaranteeing that a team with a first round bye would win the Dragon Bowl for the first time. It was also, surprisingly, the first time I team with more than 10 regular season wins will take the Dragon Bowl. The Bruins and Blazers were both 10-6 in their respective title seasons. In an intense defensive battle, Kaldukosic Katalklysm won the third Dragon Bowl 10-3 over the Sarmon Spirit. Both Kaldukosic teams have now won the Dragon Bowl, going back-to-back for the city.

The Cosumar Football League (CFL) is Cosumar's domestic gridiron football league (simply known as "football" here). The CFL was formed in year 994 of the Cosumarite calendar, uniting the two rival football leagues that had divided Cosumar (the CAF and FFA). The CAF became the "Silver Conference" of the CFL, while the FFA became the "Blue Conference". There is still a huge amount of conference pride and rivalry between the two conferences, which makes the postseason meeting of the two conference champions ("the Dragon Bowl") so much more intense. With 17 teams in each conference, the CFL consists of a total of 34 teams. Teams play each of their conference opponents once, for a 16-game season. Just like the RL NFL, the top six in each conference advance to a 12-team single elimination playoff, culminating with the Dragon Bowl. The CFL is the second-most popular sporting league in Cosumar behind only the Harlighet Ligan (soccer).

The current year at the time of this post is 998 and the CFL has just begun. Let's see how it's going so far!

1st Finnegan Trophy - Round of 16

The primary criticism of the CFL has been its lack of interconference games. Aside from the Dragon Bowl, there was no way for teams from the Silver and Blue Conferences to meet in meaningful games. To address this, the league will introduce The Finnegan Trophy this season. Named after the former coach of National Team, Gary Finnegan, this annual tournament will be feature eight randomly selected teams from each conference going at it single-elimination style, gradually progressing over the course of the season (one round each month). What's at stake? The winner automatically receives one of Cosumar's allotted spots in international competitions (along with the Dragon Bowl victor and the best regular season record from each conference).

The CFL also manages the much smaller Cosumar Arena Football League (CAFL), which serves as something of a developmental minor league for the CFL. With nine total teams, the CAFL plays a double round robin for a total of 16 games. The season concludes with a four-team playoff.

CFL Season IV (998) - Part 2

After the first four games, only two undefeated teams remains, the defending champions Kaldukosic Kataklysm of the Silver Conference and Sarmon Spirit of the Blue Conference. However, a host of 3-1 teams remained in each conference. The Versiaville Vikings are the surprise success story, sitting at 3-1 despite having never finished with a winning record before. On the other end of the spectrum, the Jadde Bruins, the former champions known for their brutal defense, have been disconcertingly soft so far (1-3). It's still early and the season and anything can happen from here. Let's find out what happens in the rest of the first half of the season!

In the Silver Conference, Kaldukosic continued its dominance and is the only remaining undefeated team. Morpont, hungry for a well-deserved first Dragon Bowl, isn't far behind. Versiaville continued its impressive form and seems to be a real contender. Mallox, Bayford and Olask round out the remaining playoff spots - for now. Jadde has started playing a little better, but they are still on the outside looking in.

In the Blue Conference, the Ramusok Stars have gone on a four-game winning streak to nab the top spot from Sarmon. Azuris and Na'Malsille are both having strong seasons too. Na'Malsille leads the conference in points with its spread passing game. The Zakhoro Wolfpack have had the worst start to a season in league history, racking up a -196 point differential (losing by an average of four touchdowns per game).

1st Finnegan Trophy - Quarterfinals

The 3-5 Keenan Robins surprise Versiaville and earn a spot in the Semifinals. Hagenheim is definitely a winnable game for them in the next round, which means we could see a huge underdog in the Final, likely against the seemingly invincible Kataklysm. The Thunder are now the Blue Conference's only hope, as the other three remaining sides are Silver.

Futbalo Asocio Sarrbi (FAS) is the domestic football league of Sarrbia and New Sirain, two Cosumar puppets located in southwestern Rushmore. Sport is not really part of the public conscience in New Sirain, so the vast majority of the FAS is Sarrbian, with only a few New Sirain clubs sprinkled in. Though there are plans to expand in the future, the FAS currently has two divisions: Ligo Premiere and Ligo Du, each now with eighteen clubs. Below Ligo Du is a clusterfuck of poorly organized regional divisions.

Sarrbia is a tropical archipelago and a founding member of the Beach Cup, so beach and association football are of equal popularity there. The FAS is unique in that the big clubs typically field both association and beach football teams. The beach teams compete in the summer, while the association teams compete in the fall/winter/spring.

The year is 998 and the FAS is about to begin its third season. However, let's first review what happened in the prior edition (took place before I started the newswire thread).




FAS Season II (993)

In Ligo Premiere, FK Arĝento Monto took home the first FAS Championship, though it was quite a battle to the end with Safiro Rivero. Marbordo ĉefurbo was a huge surprise to be relegated, as they were initially though to be one of the better teams.

Androtus of New Sirain dominated Ligo Du. It will be interesting to see if they can continue their impressive form against higher competition in Season III.

After an extended absence and some restructuring, FAS is finally back! Now, with UICA tournaments around the corner, let's see how the current season turned out.


Ligo Premiere Season III (998)

Former Champions:
I: FK Wypuli
II: FK Arĝento Monto
III: _________?


Final Standings

Safiro Rivero came so close last time, but this time they pulled through to win the Ligo Premiere. It was extremely close, as FK Wypuli trailed behind them by just 1 point for each of the final five matchdays. But Safiro Rivero's first Champions' Cup berth was well-deserved, as they were truly the most dominant team this season with a league-best +30 goal differential thanks to their impregnable defense. Aleta Rozkoton and FK Voluptamoro round out the Globe Cup party after both being edged out last season. Defending champions FK Arĝento Monto had a blazing hot start to the season, but gradually faded as the schedule dragged on. The two New Sirain clubs, FK Malibog and Androtus, finished 12th and 13th respectively. They will be joined in Ligo Premiere by countrymen Klubo Hoxvathor, who earned the nation's first ever UICA spot (SBCC). Perhaps the most shocking consequence of the season is the relegation of Malluma Maŭra, a club perceived to be a consistent top-half finisher until now.

Ligo Du Season III (998)


Final Standings

FK Pilipau. Who? Nobody saw this one coming. Heavy favorites Capiciam were solid, but little-known Pilipau was the class of Ligo Du this season. Klubo Hoxvathor also became the first New Sirain club to finish in the Top 4 of either division and earn UICA qualification. It is truly a proud moment for that fledgling nation. Arria were phenomenal until the final ten games (they were sitting in first the entire season until MD24). It seems they ran out of gas in the home stretch, but still did well enough to snag the 4th SBCC spot. Missing promotion after holding 1st for so long hurts though. I predict Arria will be back with a vengeance, ready to rip Ligo Du apart in Season IV.

CFL Season IV (998) - Part 3

Here we are, already half of the way through another season! The Kataklysm still seem like the team to beat in the Silver Conference, but I'm sure Morponte will have something to say about that! The games are starting to become more meaningful, as teams fight to keep playoff hopes within reach. Many questions remain. Will Jadde turn their season around? Are the Ramusok Stars really contenders this time, or merely first-half upstarts? Let's find out!

STANDINGS AFTER WEEK 13

Can anybody stop the Kaldukosic Kataklysm? With only four games left to play, the defending champions are still undefeated. Just look at the scorelines, they've annihilated just about every opponent. After Morponte and Mallox there are a host of 7 and 6-win teams tussling for the final three playoff spots. After being left out of the playoffs by one spot each of the past three seasons, Bayford is hoping they're one of the three this time. At 7-5, it's looking good at the moment, but Jadde isn't going to be content to sit back at 8th.

In the Blue Conference, the other Kaldukosic team is at the top of the standings. But this conference is still up for grabs by...just about anyone. With four teams with 9 wins and another three with 8, this is a very top-heavy conference this year. There are still seven squads with an excellent chance at 1st-seed. The Helfin Mighty Men have been in especially impressive form lately, including an impressive win over Kaldukosic this week. The Ramusok Stars have lost three straight, plummeting from 1st to 7th. The Wolfpack's misery has yet to relent, as they've not won a game. Will they be the CFL's first 0-16 season?

1st Finnegan Trophy - Semifinals

Keenan's miracle run in the Finnegan Trophy was ruthlessly put to an end by Hagenheim in the semifinals, and Kaldukosic advanced with a game-winning touchdown drive in the final minute against Pelethas. This sets up a Vagabonds vs. Kataklysm meeting for the first Finnegan Trophy Finals. The Kataklysm defeated Hagenheim 43-6 in Week 10.

CFL Season IV (998) - Part 4

Only four weeks of games remain in the fourth CFL season. There are many teams left in contention for the coveted playoff spots. Some will rise up and get hot going into playoffs, while others will just manage to crawl to the finish line. This is the crucial time of the year when teams must band together and fight through the pain of the season for the right to keep playing. In a sport with so few games in a season, each one makes all the difference. Many of the seasons storylines will see their resolution in this final month. Will the Kataklysm complete their undefeated season, and perhaps become the first team win the Dragon Bowl and Finnegan Trophy in the same season? Will Zakhoro even win one game? Will a team emerge from the pack and claim true supremacy in the Blue Conference? Will Jadde miss the playoffs for the first time in team history? Let's find out....NOW!

FINAL REGULAR SEASON STANDINGS

They still locked up a first-round bye, but the Kaldukosic Kataklysm's aura of invincibility has crumbled in the last two weeks of the season. After starting 14-0, seemingly destined for an undefeated season, they lost two straight heartbreakers - to Mallox and Morponte. The loss to Morponte in Week 17 was particularly devastating, as it allowed the Marauders to usurp 1st place. The Kataklysm play the Finnegan Trophy Final during their bye week, so that will be a good chance to build their confidence back up. Anyways, Morponte and Kaldukosic (14-2) take the two byes as expected, with Mallox (12-4) and Surpronuk (11-5) taking the #3 and #4 seeds, also as expected. Olask (10-6) finished strong to take the #5 slot. There was a three-way tie for the final playoff spot between Bayford, Jadde and Hagenheim (9-7). Bayford wins the tiebreaker due to head-to-head results (2-0) over Jadde (1-1) and Hagenheim (0-2). The Blue Dragons have finally earned their first CFL playoffs, at the expense of an underachieving Jadde squad.

The Helfin Mighty Men came out of nowhere to win the conference with unexpected wins over Kaldukosic and Ramusok. The second bye goes to Sarmon, who are looking to avenge their loss in the Dragon Bowl last season. Kaldukosic Blazers and Ramusok Stars (12-4) locked up the #3 and #4 slots, to no one's surprise. The final two playoff spots came down to another three-way tie, this time between Pelethas, Samaj and Azuris (10-6). Azuris was the one left out in the cold due to their 0-2 head-to-head record. They are the first team with 10 wins to not make the playoffs. And as feared, the Zakhoro Wolfpack failed to win a single game. At least Zakhoro has the Aces, right? Oh wait...

1st Finnegan Trophy - Finals

The Silver Conference knew it was taking home the first Finnegan Trophy regardless of the result of the Final showdown. But it was the Kataklysm who would triumph in a game that was much closer than the final score shows. Tied 10-10 half and 16-16 for much of the fourth quarter, Kaldukosic pulled away with a kickoff return for a touchdown and pick-six in the final five minutes. With the Finnegan Trophy now in their trophy case, Kaldukosic will attempt to full off the sweep - winning both the FT and the Dragon Bowl in the same season. Hagenheim did not make the playoffs this season.

CFL Season IV (998) - Playoffs

Of the 34 teams that started the season with bright aspiration, only 12 remain with their goal of winning the Dragon Bowl intact. It's time to kick off the CFL Playoffs! Single-elimination, no mercy, no second-chances. Go big or go home.

Wild Card Weekend

3v6 and 4v5 from each conference. The only upset was 6Samaj's late victory over 3Kaldukosic Blazers. The Surpronuk-Olask game

was a shoot-out thriller, with the two teams racking up a combined 65 points. Surpronuk scored two fourth quarter touchdowns to win, including a hail-mary with 20 seconds remaining.

Mallox Tigers              10  0  6  0  16
Bayford Blue Dragons 0 7 0 3 10

Surpronuk Marsh Monsters 7 7 6 14 34
Olask Dolphins 7 7 10 7 31

Kaldukosic Blazers 3 0 7 0 10
Samaj Spartans 0 7 6 6 19

Ramusok Stars 3 7 14 0 24
Pelethas Thunder 0 3 0 0 3


Conference Semifinals

1v4 and 2v3 in Silver Conference, 1v4 and 2v6 in Blue Conference. Kaldukosic, fresh off a Finnegan Trophy victory, completely dismantled Mallox's defense, avenging their earlier defeat. Morponte also took care of business, setting up a 1v2 matchup of 15-2 teams in the Conference Championship. In the Blue Conference, things went less according to plan. #1 Helfin was shut out until the fourth quarter by Ramusok, who advance to the Conference Championship as a 4-seed. They will face Sarmon, who won an overtime thriller against Samaj by the skin of their teeth.

Morponte Marauders          7  3  7  6  23
Surpronuk Marsh Monsters 3 0 3 6 12

Kaldukosic Kataklysm 13 14 10 10 47
Mallox Tigers 3 3 10 13 29

Helfin Mighty Men 0 0 0 7 7
Ramusok Stars 3 13 0 3 19

Sarmon Spirit 0 6 14 3 6 29
Samaj Spartans 0 0 13 10 X 23


Conference Finals

1v2 in the Silver Conference came down to overtime, but the Kataklysm were able to pull it out. Morponte's season ends with another disappointing defeat just short of the Dragon Bowl. Kaldukosic will attempt to repeat as champions next week against Sarmon Spirit, who absolutely obliterated Ramusok in the Blue Conference Final. Yes, it is a rematch of last year's Dragon Bowl. Will Sarmon learn from last year's loss on the biggest stage, or will the Kataklysm become the first team to win the Dragon Bowl AND Finnegan Trophy in the same season?

Morponte Marauders      3  7  0  7 X  17
Kaldukosic Kataklysm 3 7 0 7 6 23

Ramusok Stars 7 0 0 7 14
Sarmon Spirit 3 17 10 10 40


DRAGON BOWL

Kaldukosic Kataklysm    6  7  0  0  13
Sarmon Spirit 0 0 7 7 14


Despite trailing 13-0 at halftime, the Sarmon Spirit came back to win 14-13 in the second half! They are the CFL's 998 Dragon Bowl Champions! Congratulations to the City of Sarmon on a fantastic season.

LEAGUE CYCLE XI PREVIEW

The excitement of the AOCAF and the transfer window is dying down, and it's time to turn our attention back to Cosumarite domestic play. The Fiefdom Soccer Federation will embark on its 11th season this year (999 in the Cosumarite calendar) and looks poised to give us one of its most exciting seasons yet. The top three divisions have been expanded to 18 teams each, and for the first time the FSF will organize an open cup for the nearly 200 Cosumarite clubs in the league system. The Halighet Ligan is full of questions....will Mallox or OAS Royal take back the spotlight, will Real Azuris repeat, or will a new club win its first Championship for the fourth consecutive season? Which Sekundar Ligan and Tredje Ligan underdogs will win over the Fiefdom's hearts in their quest for unlikely promotion? Which gutsy lower league team will make a Cinderella run in the first FSF Cup? Keep reading for TheCourier.cos' exclusive Season XI Preview. We'll give you team-by-team analysis, predictions, and more!

Overview of Past Winners:
I: OAS Royal FC
II: OAS Royal FC (2)
III: Mallox
IV: Mallox (2)
V: OAS Royal FC (3)
VI: Mallox (3)
VII: OAS Royal FC (4)
VIII: Ramusok United
IX: Klyde FC
X: Real Azuris
XI: _______???

4 – OAS Royal FC
3 – Mallox
1 – Ramusok United
1 – Klyde FC
1 – Real Azuris



REAL AZURIS
Azuris, South Klyde Fief

Image
Image
Nickname: The Breakers
Founded: 962
Ground: Massemord Stadium (42,243)
Manager: Akira Eld
Team Captain: MF Giovanni Aldinne. Top Scorer Last Season: CF Ipier Ubuntu (18)
Preview: Real Azuris is returning almost the exact same starting eleven that shockingly won the Harlighet Ligan last year, so there’s no reason to think they won’t contend for a championship again. Center back Kamron Gurrevitz was lured away by Fransborg set Njilkaer of Semarland, but he was swiftly replaced by young Chiatan star Rod Fermer. The rest of the team is still intact and showed they’re still in top form with a deep run in the Globe Cup. Giovanni Aldinne looked impressive starting for the National Team in the AOCAF and showing no signs of slowing down despite his age (33). He has been the centerpiece of this club and will continue to be for the foreseeable future. Akira Eld has taken much of the burden off of Aldinne by surrounding him with quality homegrown players like breakout star striker Ipier Ubuntu (a speedy, creative goal-scorer was Azuris’ missing piece all these years) and winger tandem Delfinho and Santeri Moors. With Fermer joining solid defenders like Snorri Erkins and Jan Årud on the back line, this team should be among the most balanced in the Harlighet Ligan. Real Azuris has built their success the right way – from the ground up by developing their own young talent over the years and fitting them to their system rather than splurging on big name transfers every offseason. They don’t have the star power or little bit of extra flair to make them truly great, but they have no glaring weaknesses either and should be in the mix at the top of the table again. Rumor has it that Eld is switching from a 4-4-2 to a variant of 4-3-3, but I doubt it will impact this team’s winning formula too much. I’ve doubted this team in the past and made me look silly every time – I won’t make the same mistake again.
Last Season: Champions (18-6-6). Prediction: 3rd.


RAMUSOK UNITED
Ramusok, Ramusok Fief

Image
Image
Nickname: The Blues
Founded: 751
Ground: Fire River Arena (80,000)
Manager: Alf Durand
Team Captain: GK Tomi Koskinen. Top Scorer Last Season:FW Gabriel Nowitzki (12)
Preview: Ram U had a lot of new pieces last season and they started slowly, but by the end of the season they had finally figured everything out and looked absolutely deadly – climbing up to 2nd place by going undefeated in their last eleven matches. Like Real Azuris, they’ve kept their squad largely intact and – if they can pick up where they left off last season – have a great chance to win their second Harlighet Ligan title. NT goalkeeper Tomi Koskinen and NT center back Kirum Mortonsson are an experienced partnership in the back. Super-Llamaland free transfer defender Mike Flanningan was a pleasant surprise last season as well, earning a regular starting role and establishing himself as top-tier player. Polarian NT midfielder Robin Geirsson is the true linchpin of this team with his dynamic skill set in the center of midfield. He was extraordinary last season and was in the discussion for Foreign Player of the Year honors. Alf Durand’s only major signing of the offseason was young Cosumarite attacking midfielder Martin Mazida from Sekundar Ligan side IFK Aldenskoett. The lad was brilliant in the second level and has a promising future. Ram U has lots of quality in the back and midfield, but their only weakness is their lack of potency up front. Gabriel Nowitzki and Sunrisian youngster Raphael Xodó are decent forwards, but both are young and below average in size. To cement themselves as the clear best team in the league, they needed to get a top class CF, a true target for Geirsson & Co. to set up. They failed to do so. The Blues have bountiful quality everywhere else and Nowitzki continues to show improvement, so this shouldn’t be too large of a hindrance. It is, however, what OAS Royal FC has over them and why I can’t pick them to win.
Last Season: 2nd (14-12-4). Prediction: 2nd.


CASSANDRA CITY
Cassandra City, Criscalus Fief

Image
Image
Nickname: The Stars
Founded: 882
Ground: The Amphitheatre (53,120)
Manager: Ron Bromwyn
Team Captain: MF Kyle Fleming. Top Scorer Last Season: ST Ace Newman (19)
Preview: Cassandra City scored 68 goals last season, 21 more than the next-closest team, with four players exceeding the 10-goal mark. That is insane. They are absolutely loaded with explosive talent up front. Starting forwards Ace Newman (22) and Tevin Lilley (19) both have a great shot at a call-up to the National Team for WC70. Kyle Fleming (last season’s Foreign Player of the Year) of Nova Anglicana and Cosme of Northern Sunrise Islands are midfielders with some serious skills on the attacking side of the ball as well. However, I don’t quite see Cassandra City returning to UICA play this year. Why, you ask? Francois Renault. He’s gone. The former NT captain and winger, despite all of the Stars’ young talent, was the heart and soul of this team. He led the Harlighet Ligan in assists last season and scored 14 goals himself. With Renault now at Molsbik Arkjet of Semarland, Kyle Fleming will wear the armband and new acquisition Richard Vencharde of Western Borderlands will fill Renault’s left wing spot. Although Fleming and Vencharde are great players, they’re not Renault. The impact of a team losing its on-and-off-the-pitch leader cannot be understated. Don’t get me wrong Cassandra City will still be a dangerous team and score buckets of goals, but they will lack that vital touch of experience and discipline Renault provided. Plus, besides The Fallenmark Islands CB Klaus Minkowski, the defense is young and inexperienced and will ship more goals than they can afford.
Last Season: 3rd (16-4-10). Prediction: 6th.


CRAWFORD CITY FC
Crawford, Numenvernien Fief

Image
Image
Nickname: The Elephants
Founded: 924
Ground: Orangi Stadium (61,000)
Manager: Rastus Van Daele
Team Captain: RB Kristian Gjallskald. Top Scorer Last Season: CF Mikah Andersen (10)
Preview: CCFC edged out many “superior” teams to finish 4th and snag the final UICA berth, their first ever, last season. Was it an aberration? Yes and no. Rastus Van Daele certainly has this club heading in the right direction. Their profile, fan support, attendance and income are all on the rise. I think they are only going to continue to improve and see many more UICA berths in their future. The current atmosphere around the Elephants is eerily similar to what it was like for Real Azuris when they first started emerging as a new powerhouse. That said, I don’t think Crawford is there yet. There is no way they are really one of the best four teams in the Harlighet Ligan at this point in time. Top Half? Sure. UICA-worhty? Despite last season’s finish…no, not yet. Their swift elimination from the Globe Cup was evidence enough of that. It was not an aberration that they exceeded expectations last year, but they had to overachieve by quite a lot to reach 4th and I don’t see it happening again at least for another few seasons. There is a lot to like about the Elephants though. Jakk Winterfyll is the best goalkeeper in Cosumar not named Tomi Koskinen. He does a better job for the Elephants than if they blocked the goal with an actual elephant. The dude is airtight. They also have one of the best defensive midfielders in the league in Phil Sherman. Even though they lost veteran center back Phillip O’Hair to Yttribia’s Etaulse Club, they still have a formidable back four with stone-cold RB Kristian Gjallskald and Nephara import Sophia Chambers in there. Goals were a bit hard to come by last season, but the addition of Semarlandic winger Adren Muller and the continued to development of prospect CAM Chad Overstreet should free a few up. Plus, their rebranding effort has given them the most elegant kits in Cosumar and a brand new stadium in suburban Crawford. Hard not to root for this ascending club.
Last Season: 4th (15-3-12). Prediction: 7th.


OAS ROYAL FC
Område av Storslagenhet, Ramusok Fief

Image
Image
Nickname: The Whites
Founded: 982
Ground: The Royal Palace (54,000)
Manager: Luke Crisalus
Team Captain: CF Sur Arora. Top Scorer Last Season: CF Sur Arora (17)
Preview: I know all of my Cosumarite readers will despise me for saying this… but I am convinced that the traditional villains of the Harlighet Ligan will restore their supremacy this season. Missing out on the UICA by a single point last season was a massive disappointment, but they had valid excuses. Team captain and superstar forward Sur Arora was severely limited by recovery from a broken leg (yet still managed to net 17 goals, astounding given his noticeably weakened condition). Prized acquisition FW Atlas Yrska of Calorax showed flashes of brilliance but didn’t live up to expectations. Starting midfielder Mustafa Hendrix was suspended by the league for the second half of the season due to an assault charge. Defensive linchpin Alexander Pearce missed much of the season with a barrage of ankle injuries. These issues culminated with the Whites missing the Globe Cup for the second straight year, because they couldn’t defeat Zakhoro on the final match of the season. Yet these issues all seem to be resolved this year. Everyone is back and 100% fit, Manager Luke Crisalus says Atlas Yrska is ready to have a breakout season, and star Fenbarric CM Landon Cowan joins the team on transfer to provide a true maestro behind Arora and Yrska. Looking at this team from top to bottom, I see the most complete squad in the league. Alexander Pearce (NT sub), Jon-Perohlin Nodtveit (NT starter), Everett Seymour (U21 starter), and Jannick Kontiola (Quebec NT) combine to make the most ferocious, star-studded back line in the Harlighet Ligan. National Team Captain and leading goal scorer Sur Arora is back to full health and, at 31, is still the most gifted forward in the Fiefdom by leaps and bounds. AM Talca Na’Zogbia is another key piece and will be instrumental in setting up the attack – he’s one of the best set-piece deliverers in the league. Assuming this team stays healthy and plays to its full potential (something that hasn’t happened in the past two years), I don’t think there’s a group that can stop them from claiming their 5th Championship. If they finish below 4th again, it’s hard to see Luke Crisalus staying in charge another season.
Last Season: 5th (13-8-9). Prediction: Champions.


MALLOX

Image
Nickname: The Tigers
Founded: 804
Ground: Orange Palace (35,700)
Manager: Alvin Burnsides
Team Captain: CB Franz Rowgedeb; Top Scorer Last Season: Anders Engström (18)
Preview: Many are of the view that the two historic giants of Cosumarite football (OAS and Mallox) are on the way out. With the two finishing 5th and 6th last season (first Cosumarite UICA delegation without them) and OAS finishing 8th the season prior, it’s not hard to see why. But just like OAS, I envision Mallox having something of a rebound campaign this season. In my opinion, there are six clubs that are clearly above the rest (my predicted top six for the season, obviously) and it’s honestly a toss-up between these six for which ones snag a UICA spot. I like Mallox’s chances though, because they are extremely good at the most important thing in this sport: putting the ball in the net. Their defense isn’t great, but it doesn’t need to be – it merely needs to be good enough to allow the Tigers to outscore the other team. That didn’t happen enough last season. Their highly-touted attack underachieved by their standards (expected to be in Cassandra City’s 60s range, but only scoring 47), so they settled for way too many draws because they simply aren’t the kind of team that’s built to win games 1-0. If they only score one goal, they are going to get a 1-1 or 1-2 result. They need to be scoring 2-3 goals per game. They are capable of this, and did so regularly in the past until last season. As of now, I’m ready to chalk last season up to poor luck. Mallox’s track record (finished top four in seasons I-IX, three championships) speaks for itself. A pair of World Cup stars (Cosumar’s Anders Engström and Nova Anglicana’s Jimmy Kelly) made for a dynamic and effective pairing up front, but the midfield’s performance was sub-par and didn’t help the attack (or defense) very much. Possession was a losing battle all year. Letting go of promising young midfielder Felix Merchison to Viztourzys Kolektyvinis of Buyan doesn’t help. Desperate for elite midfield talent to correct this situation for the upcoming season, Mallox pulled off a marquee transfer, bringing in 27-year-old Felix national teamer Haruto Takahashi to play left midfield. He is exactly the kind of midfielder the Tigers needed, intelligent and versatile with top-class experience and some flair in the attack. He could be the key piece this squad was missing last year.
Last Season: 6th (11-12-7). Prediction: 4th.


KLYDE FC
Klyde City, North Klyde Fief

Image
Image
Nickname: The Doves
Founded: 649
Ground: The Klyde Sportsplex (88,000)
Manager: Jorginho
Team Captain: CAM Fraz'm'nar Gor. Top Scorer Last Season: FW Jacques Bourbon (13)
Preview: What happened to Klyde? A year after winning the Harlighet Championship and riding a wave of momentum, they took a nose dive to 7th. Sorry Doves fans, but this is just not a club you can ever count on to sustain success. They seem to have a “good season, bad season” pattern – you never know what you’re going to get. After losing their best player and team captain RB Tae Woo Miyori on transfer to Blau-Weiss Pallstadt of Buyan, I’m not confident they’ll rebound and turn things around this season. They also let longtime starting goalkeeper Blinne Va’Tuaras bolt for Fenbar. Though, at 36 years old, Va’Tuaras was due for replacement soon anyways. However, I am starting to think that Klyde still managed to improve over the offseason despite these departures. The club was brilliant in improving itself over the transfer market. This Klyde team will look very different than the one that took the field a year ago. The biggest move was snagging 95X defender Natasha Davis from the Port Chester Ladybugs, giving them instant cred on the back line despite losing Miyori. Young Darvalian midfielder Jacob Madison is a promising talent who figures to plug in right away alongside returning starters Kaspian, Gor, Simmalton and Clucke. The new goalkeeper is Sandy Shores, a former member of the Equestrian States national team. Miyori’s replacement at right back is Isaiah Ferguson of Fenbar. Premiere forward Ejegefeh Na’Safeh of Mariners and NT fame also joins the Doves for a hefty fee, giving the team a legit second threat for defenses to worry about (the other being young forward Jacques Bourbon). It’s an… interesting… pairing. It might take some time to gel but adding a player of Na’Safeh’s caliber is never a bad thing. I don’t think the Doves will soar back to their Season IX heights this season, not with so many new faces in the starting line-up, but Jorginho somehow managed to make his team better despite losing two of his best players – they are headed in the right direction. Will contend fiercely for a Globe Cup spot.
Last Season: 7th (13-6-11). Prediction: 5th.


EASTWEALD
Yambridge, Gellano Fief

Image
Image
Nickname: The Elves
Founded: 704
Ground: Old Weldenskirgen (43,209)
Manager: Henrique Ventura
Team Captain: CB Abdiel Assad. Top Scorer Last Season: RM Jake Wiggins (7)
Preview: In the early days of the FSF, Eastweald was mentioned in the same breath as OAS and Mallox in the pantheon of the league’s elite. For the past decade or so, however, the team has been mired in the middle of the table. Good enough to beat all the mediocre to bad teams and maintain some relevance, but never good enough to contend with truly great teams. [Much like the RL Dallas Cowboys the last few years]. The public faces of the club, NT veteran CBs Abdiel Assad and Endyl Paru, are 32 and 36 years old respectively, and little is being done to prepare for their imminent replacement. For the moment though, their defense is still quite solid, especially with the addition of Estenian LB Andrei Arsamov. They also have a lot of quality in the midfield, with Super-Llamaland’s Jake Wiggins and Polar Islandstates’ Mika Ostaltsov making for a savvy duo in the middle. Ostaltsov was Henrique Ventura’s big signing of the transfer window and Ventura is pinning his fate as Manager on the Polarian’s impact on the team. A bottom half finish will surely get him sacked. Eastweald’s Achilles heel will be the same as it was last season: their ineptitude at scoring goals. The Elves let leading scorer Coden Hari go over the transfer window, as Buyanese club Tjelberg Forening was willing to overpay a bit for him. They then used the money to lure FW Franz Auman away from Fenbarric club Flippers FC, but it’s unclear how much of an improvement Auman is – if any. Eastweald needs every player on their roster to perform at optimal levels if they want to be anywhere near a UICA berth at the end of the season. They are not a bad team by any means, and everyone still dreads playing at Old Weldenskirgen, but there are just better groups out there.
Last Season: 8th (13-4-13). Prediction: 8th.


MORPONTE FIEF
Mortim, Morponte Fief

Image
Image
Nickname: The Riders
Founded: 856
Ground: OmniTech Park (29,680)
Manager: Grant Bulle
Team Captain: MF Abel Scarloff. Top Scorer Last Season: Curtis Hickory (12)
Preview: Morponte Fief first came up from the Sekundar Ligan five seasons ago and avoided a quick relegation by the skin of their teeth. Since then, Grant Bulle has steadily improved this club, cementing the Riders as a respected side in the Harlighet Ligan. They don't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Former NT star midfielder Abel Scarloff seems intent on devoting the twilight years of his career to his hometown club, and is squeezing every last ounce of excellence he has left for them. This Morponte team is a peculiar mix of wily old veterans and young prospects, with little middle ground. The leaders of the team are clearly Scarloff (36), forward Curtis Hickory (31) and Calanian midfielder Adam Willis (34), who just arrived from Sporting Iturributa. On the other hand, Morponte’s elite youth academy continues to churn out fresh talents like goalkeeper Esteban Hernandez (18), defender Eithan Sigurdsson (19) and Western Borderlands striker Leo Montarvo (18) - who are being plugged straight into starting roles alongside their more well-traveled teammates. It’s an interesting concoction. It surely facilitates great learning and development for the youngsters and allows the veterans to act as mentors, but playing their raw talents against elite competition has resulted in some humbling losses. To be fair, Grant Bulle has strived for a bit more balance over the offseason, adding Greater Watford CB Coy Bossard and Sunrisian RM Pauly Shorts – who are both in their 20s. On paper, the Riders are approximately the 10th best team, but they have a knack for punching above their weight and overachieving so I wouldn’t be surprised at all if they leapfrog a few teams I currently have higher than them.
Last Season: 9th (12-7-11). Prediction: 10th.


FC SAMOTATH
Samotath, Parougan Fief

Nickname: The Blackhawks
Founded: 845
Ground: Lockwood Memorial Stadium (35,000)
Manager: Casimiro Rosales
Team Captain: FW Roberto DeCinezo. Top Scorer Last Season: CF Addam Andsman-Savage (21)
Preview: Even the most optimistc Samotath fans will tell you they have mixed feelings about their club’s future. The Blackhawks’ undisputed best players, aging forwards Addam Andsman-Savage (36) and Roberto DeCinezo (35) have been noncommittal about if they will return after this season. The word on the street is that both players are considering retirement or a move to a less demanding league. If that is the case, this will be the last season to see these FC Samotath legends in the black and red. Together they scored 31 of FC Samotath’s 46 goals last season, so replacing them will be difficult. On the other hand, the club has finally acknowledged that defending does exist by snagging Polarian center back Elias Hermesniemi from Hospitaliers. FC Samotath allowed a league-worst 57 goals last season and Hermesniemi isn’t an instant fix, but it’s a step in the right direction. In the meantime, FC Samotath’s aggressively attacking style should be as potent as ever this season. They have the depth up front to give their older players plenty of rest and keep people fresh. Keep an eye on young striker Devon Noble when he gets his opportunities – as he could be a key to their future. Casimiro Rosales’ club also has a respectable amount of quality in the midfield with young field general Robby Jepsen and Equestrian States LM Blue Skies. The Blackhawks will be entertaining to watch as usual due to their unconventional tactics and “rack up the goals or die trying” mentality, but they will get burned by the fact that they have zero defenders of any quality aside from Hermesniemi and an average midfield corps.
Last Season: 10th (10-8-12). Prediction: 12th.


FC KALDUKOSIC

Image
Nickname: The Champions
Founded: 756
Ground: Leviathan Arena (98,000)
Manager: Daniel Laramie
Team Captain: FW Corey Simmons. Top Scorer Last Season: FW Grenville Antonsson (16)
Preview: Alex O’Neill is out and Daniel Laramie is in as the coach of FC Kaldukosic. They managed to save face with a decent second half of the season after an utterly catastrophic first half (one win and slated for relegation) but it wasn’t enough to save O’Neill’s job. Two consecutive 11th place finishes is baffling and completely unacceptable for a club with the resources, history, and level of talent that Kaldukosic has. At this point, the “Champions” are merely a parody of their former selves. Daniel Laramie is known for being a stern disciplinarian manager, not afraid to crack the whip. Perhaps that’s what this team needs to find some semblance of good consistent football. On paper, FC Kaldukosic should be in contention for UICA spots. They have top-class players all across the field. Corey Simmons, though old, is still a savvy finisher around the goal and his counterpart Grenville Antonsson has emerged as one of the most capable scorers in Cosumar, as evidenced by his strong play on the Cosumar Olympic team this year. They have a young, skilled and supremely athletic midfield with Va’Goshal, Perkins, Archambault and Steven Bennett of the Darvale NT. Their already-solid back line, despite Cosmo Coppellian bolting for Semarland, is improved by the arrivals of teen prospect Tomasso Tenebrosa, Erick Garyson of Chiata and Redd Banner of Southern Sunrise Islands. So they have all this talent. Why isn’t it translating to success? That’s a mystery to me. There has got to be something not quite right in the clubhouse at FC Kaldukosic...to be spending this kind of money on great talent and still failing to even crack the top half. There is a weird atmosphere around this team right now and I’m not going to place them any higher than 9th until they prove to me they can pull themselves out of this funk.
Last Season: 11th (9-10-11). Prediction: 9th.


ZAKHORO ACES
Zakhoro, Ankortroth Fief

Image
Founded: 888
Ground: Zapt Park (29,400)
Manager: Šimon Holguín
Team Captain: DM Reuben Hamasaki. Top Scorer Last Season: FW Belarmin Worsaw (16)
Preview: The Zakhoro Aces are one of those “homeless” clubs that everyone sort of pities, as they constantly bounce back and forth between the Harlighet and Sekundar Ligans. Well, even if they don’t get a single point this season, they’ll have accomplished something the club has never done before: staying up for three consecutive seasons. After winning the Sekundar Ligan in Season VIII, they have dodged relegation in both of the last two seasons. The only previous time Zakhoro played a Harlighet Ligan season without being relegated was the very first season. Ouch. Can they extend their stay to a fourth season and prove that they’re here to stay? The Aces finishing 12th last season was a bit of a shock (and there were several matches where they got flat-out lucky) – I don’t think it will happen again. They will have to fight tooth and nail to stay up as usual. The strike partnership of veteran forward Kalvin Williams and Wesern Borderlands teen Belarmin Worsaw, who emerged as a surprise star for the club last season, should be capable of netting a goal or two against most teams. Speedy 18-year-old midfielder Mauricio Sigler is an intriguing prospect with U21 call-ups in his very near future. The team struggles in the back, however, with team captain and DM stalwart Reuben Hamasaki carrying way too much of the burden to make up for his no-name teammates. The club has brought in Logan Shaw from Darvale to be the starting goalkeeper, and he’ll need to be on the top of his game to give the Aces a shot. On a positive note, at least if they get relegated they’ll have a chance to become the first team to win three Sekundar Ligan Championships!
Last Season: 12th (9-9-12). Prediction: 16th, Relegation Playoff.


AC HOLMENKOLLEN

Nickname: Cedars
Founded: 971
Ground: Cedar Road (17,900)
Manager: Martyn Dirchs
Team Captain: CB Neville Bloxham. Top Scorer Last Season: Dmytro Kurosawa (13)
Preview: In many ways, AC Holmenkollen feels like a Sekundar or even Tredje Ligan club. It represents a small suburban town, its stadium is the smallest in the top flight and its facilities and budget are humble. But make no mistake, the Cedars are a Harlighet Ligan team where it counts: on the field. They are the only club to ever spend time in Tredje Ligan and work their way back up all the way to the top flight. Martyn Dirchs has done a masterful job of maximizing his team’s ability despite the limited budget by pinpointing undervalued, underrated, and overlooked players and developing them into a cohesive team that plays as one. They’re not the most talented bunch (although their recent success has allowed them to make a few noteworthy international transfers such as DF Arda from Crystal Empire and MF Adnan Valerikssen from Semarland) but they’re well-coached, intelligent and visibly give 100% effort. Sarrbian striker Dmytro Kurosawa proved he can do his thing in Cosumar by leading the team in goals last season. The Cedars are very solid in the back as well, led by veteran defenders Neville Bloxham and Ben Seppänen. AC Holmenkollen will probably get outclassed by the Harlighet Ligan’s elite teams (though they might just claim a few scalps, mind you) but I like their prospects to stay up a second consecutive season and maybe even make a strong push towards the middle of the table.
Last Season: 13th (8-8-14). Prediction: 13th.


NA'MALSILLE MARINERS
Na'Ailee, Na'Malsille Fief
Image
Image
Founded: 945
Ground: Varela Road (28,340)
Manager: Knut Rosenthal
Team Captain: DM Everett Abello. Top Scorer Last Season: CF Ejegefe Na'Safeh (15)
Preview: The Mariners have never been relegated, but they sure do like to cut it close. They've finished the season within three spots of relegation for each of the past seven seasons, and were in the relegation zone halfway through the season for four of those. I suppose Knut Rosenthal deserves some credit for motivating his side to finish strong and stay above the line each season, but patience with the eccentric manager is running thin, especially after he was unable to keep longtime club figurehead Ejegefeh Na’Safeh from jumping ship for Klyde. Ownership wants to see the Mariners push for a top-half finish right away, but I’m just not sure if it’s realistic. Na'Malsille has some exciting up-and-coming talent but they're just so young! Four teenagers (Na’Kebia, Grimswald, Svensson, Akindele) slated for starting positions this season. They have such a dearth of experience that 33-year-old Yttribian DM Everett Abello became the Team Captain by default when he transferred in a few weeks ago. And though new arrival Felix Jakobson of Estenia is a proven striker, he’s not Na’Safeh. At least CAM Darwyn Lucassen has developed into a legit secondary goal threat – something they sorely lacked in the past. Na’Malsille also added prized goalkeeper Helmut Gauthier from The Royal Kingdom of Quebec, which should go a long way towards covering for the diminished attack. It’s not necessarily his fault, but Rosenthal gets the sack if they finish below 12th this season.

Nickname: The Greys
Founded: 771
Ground: Sweethaven Stadium (70,000)
Manager: Wendel Moores
Team Captain: CB Elliott O'Dell. Top Scorer Last Season: Yuri Makarov (5)
Preview: If it weren’t for the Harlighet Ligan expanding from 16 to 18 teams this season, Stoneshore United would have been relegated along with last place finishers West Gundar FC. In all honesty, they probably deserved to go down. They were comically incapable of scoring goals, tallying only nine over the whole season (that’s less than one every three matches, folks). I expect sizable improvement from the Greys this season because they directly attacked this problem over the transfer market. Their transfer window was headlined by young Buyan forward Sam Herbjornsrud as well as Western Borderlands CAM Lawrence Parmenham. They form an improved attacking trio with Estenian forward Yuri Makarov, which should be able to deliver at least one goal every three matches, don’t you think? They’ll be solid in the back again, as usual, returning their starters from last season and bolstering the unit with the arrival of veteran backs Beltza Gaineratzaile of Audioslavia and Matt Kinsington of Brenecia.

Nickname: Serpents
Founded: 814
Ground: Somerset Road (45,000)
Manager: Angus Howell
Team Captain: FW Andreas Brennan. Top Scorer Last Season: FW Andreas Brennan (15)
Preview: The Centus Serpents won the Sekundar Ligan last season on the strength of their fearsome defense, returning to the Harlighet Ligan for the first time since Season V. LB Jukka Lindroos, the best defenseman on the Cosumar National Team, is good enough to play anywhere in the world…so, naturally, he dominated in the Cosumarite second division. But not even promotion was enough to keep him around, as he was lured away by Marine Coast United of Vilita. Can the Serpents still be the same team that won the Sekundar Ligan last year without Lindroos? Predicting how players will respond to the higher level of competition is difficult, but I think Centus is the best-prepared of the newly promoted sides to come in and compete right away. They’re just so well-rounded and don’t rely too much on any one guy. Lindroos was the star last season, but all of the players on their back line are capable of making MVP one-on-one plays. They also had an incredibly productive transfer window. Purchasing LB Antony Amilfaltino from Varvonti Firestorm to be Lindroos’ replacement was a great move, as were the international transfers of Greater Watfordian forward Milo Gregory, Semarlandic keeper Leo Mulsen, Equestrian States defender Stinger, and Sunrisian midfielder Gutinho. I’m especially excited to see Gregory on the field for the Serpents. I consider him an underrated player and I think he will pair beautifully with Andreas Brennan in the attack. Angus Howell still has a long way to go before his club can hope to defeat the top teams, but they should at least be reasonably competent this year. They expect to finish the season above the relegation line.
Last Season: 1st in Sekundar Ligan (17-7-6). Prediction: 15th.

Nickname: The Villagers
Founded: 907
Ground: Versiaville Pavilion (31,200)
Manager: Guston Cox
Team Captain: CM Olivier Eliot. Top Scorer Last Season: ST Octavius Ioda (16)
Preview: In the Sekundar Ligan, Versiaville SC was elite in the attack and below average in defense. Translated to the Harlighet Ligan…..they are average in the attack and abysmal in defense. Not a winning formula. It doesn’t matter how many men they send forward, they won’t be able to score 68 goals against Harlighet Ligan teams. And if the Villagers’ back line was porous at times in the second division, imagine what teams like Mallox and Cassandra City will do to them? They added Nephara back Spike Lorence in the transfer window, but that is hardly an instant fix to their woes. To be fair though, there are plenty of things to like about this team. Octavius Ioda is as exciting of a striker as you’ll find anywhere and CM Olivier Eliot is an accomplished field general of great poise and precision. Ioda and Eliot have excellent chemistry after several seasons together. Teen forward Asa Nemtheanga is an astonishing talent but doesn’t have enough top level experience to make much of an impact this season. Goalkeeper Graham MacAmlaigh is actually a really solid player. Though he allowed a lot of goals last season, he also was among the Sekundar Ligan leaders in saves. Which highlights my main critique with this team…the weakness in the back. Ioda, Nemtheanga and Eliot will put up a decent goal tally, but it won’t be enough to keep pace with opponents on the other end of the pitch.

Ground: Elliott (16,800)
Manager: Casimir Salinas
Team Captain: CAM Thomas Teverridge. Top Scorer Last Season: ST Trystan Fitzpatrick (18)
Preview: I was pretty high on Samaj’s prospects of staying up after this season…until they lost two of their best three players during the transfer window. Leading scorer Trystan Fitzpatrick will be playing in Apox now, and young center midfielder Wesley Slovacek in Barunia. These two, along with team captain CAM Thomas Teverridge, were the heart and soul of the Hunters’ squad last season. And that’s a Hunters squad that only got promoted because of the Harlighet Ligan’s expansion from 16 to 18 teams. In any previous season, they would still be in the Sekundar Ligan. For these reasons, it’s difficult to envision them doing much in the top flight. Their marquee pick-up of the transfer window was veteran center forward Allen Huthson from New West Guiana. They need him to produce at a seriously high level in order to adequately replace a burgeoning star like Fitzpatrick. Samaj should be good in the back, with Barunian goalkeeper Rose Kinsley and Semarlandic CB Mikke Kristiansen being the key players, but they don’t have much quality in the midfield besides NT sub Thomas Teverridge. Mr. Teverridge has shown he can carry this club on his shoulders in the past, but he’s 33 years old now and it’s unlikely he can carry this undertalented team out of the relegation zone. But hey – as long as they’ve got Teverridge’s heavenly crosses and set-piece deliveries they’ve got a chance, right?
Last Season: 3rd in Sekundar Ligan (14-9-7). Prediction: 17th, Relegation.

I suppose the FSF can now officially be considered a legit league system, because we finally have a league cup! The first Cosumar Cup will be held between all 182 clubs in the Lagre Ligan 2 or above. It will be unseeded and drawn at random – though clubs in higher leagues will enter the tournament in progressively later stages. Here is a tentative schedule for the Cosumar Cup.

Week before start of season: Preliminary Round 1. All 64 Lagre Ligan 2 clubs play a Ro64-style playoff to eliminate 32

Between MD5/6: Preliminary Round 2. The remaining 32 Lagre Ligan 2 clubs + 32 random Lagre Ligan 1 clubs play a Ro64-style playoff. The 32 winning clubs, plus the 32 Lagre Ligan 1 clubs that received byes, are entered into a 118-team single elimination tourney including all Tredje/Sekundar/Harlighet Ligan clubs. The ten first-round byes will be randomly assigned, but split 1/3/6 between the upper divisions.

Between MD 10/11: First round of 118-team tourney. 64 teams remain.

Between MD 15/16: Second round. 32 teams remain.

Between MD 20/21: Third round. 16 teams remain.

Between MD 25/26: Fourth round. 8 teams remain.

Between MD 30/31: Quarterfinals. 4 teams remain.

Post-season: Semifinals and Finals. Winner crowned (Cygnus Cup berth).

SEASON XI - First Quarter



Image

The new-look Harlighet Ligan is off to an exciting start to the season! There are two additional teams on the table, four more matches on the schedule, and the quality of football is higher than ever. Through nine games, Real Azuris (8-0-1) looks virtually unstoppable. Eastweald is five points behind thanks to their impeccable defense (3 goals allowed). Cassandra City, Ramusok United, and Stoneshore United all follow three points behind Eastweald. Newly promoted side Versiaville SC, despite being picked to finish last, has silenced critics by rocketing off to a fast start (4-2-3) to life in the Harlighet Ligan. The season is still young though, and they will be hard-pressed to stay above sleeping giants like OAS Royal, Mallox and Klyde for long. The Na'Malsille Mariners sit in last place, the only squad still in search of a first win.

Biggest matches so far
MD1: FC Samotath 2–0 Klyde FC (Addam Andsman-Savage still has it! The veteran striker netted a pair to upset Klyde in front of ecstatic crowd)
MD1: OAS Royal FC 0–1 Stoneshore United (Yuri Makarov's winner in stoppage time ruins OAS Royal's home opener)
MD1: Real Azuris 3–0 Ramusok United (The defending champions with an impressive showing in week 1's marquee match)
MD2: FC Kaldukosic 0–7 Cassandra City (Ace Newman scores season's first hat trick as the Stars embarrass FC Kaldukosic on their own ground)
MD3: OAS Royal FC 1–3 FC Kaldukosic (Grenville Antonsson and FC Kal take advantage of a struggling OAS side still seeking a first win)
MD3: Real Azuris 7–0 Zakhoro Aces (The defending champions return to the top of the table en route to a 3-0-0 record, Zakhoro falls to last)
MD4: Na'Malsille Mariners 2–4 OAS Royal FC (Sur Arora explodes for four goals to deliver the Whites their first win)
MD4: Versiaville SC 5–3 Cassandra City (League newcomers Versiaville outscore a hot Cassandra City side, improve to 2-1-1. Surprise contenders?)
MD4: Crawford City FC 2–0 Eastweald (CCFC ruins Eastweald's hitherto perfect record thanks to a monumental day in goal for Jakk Winterfyll)
MD5: Mallox 1–4 Klyde FC (Mallox continues to uncharacteristically struggle to score. Klyde walked into Orange Palace and exposed the Tigers)
MD5: Eastweald 1–0 FC Samotath (In a battle between the #2 and #3 clubs on the table, Eastweald came out victorious on a Franz Auman penalty)
MD5: Morponte Fief 3–0 FC Kaldukosic (The Riders get a big home win over FC Kaldukosic. The "Champions" with a very slow start to season again)
MD6: Versiaville SC 4–1 Real Azuris (The Breakers, who were 5-0-0, finally suffer their first defeat at the hands of...Versiaville???)
MD7: Samaj FC 3–2 Klyde FC (The Doves fall to Samaj on the road. Spectacular 88' long-range volley from Allen Huthson wins it for Samaj)
MD7: Eastweald 0–0 Mallox (It ended in a scoreless draw, but this was a riveting and intense match between two historic rivals off to good starts)
MD7: Cassandra City 3–4 AC Holmenkollen (The Cedars waltz into The Amphitheatre on outduel Cassandra in a heated second half shootout)
MD7: Ramusok United 0–1 FC Kaldukosic (Ram U's lackluster performance continues as rival Kaldukosic hoists themselves out of relegation zone)
MD8: AC Holmenkollen 3–1 OAS Royal FC (The Cedars continue their excellent form, disposing of high-profile visitors OAS Royal FC)
MD8: Mallox 2–4 Cassandra City (Two of Cosumar's best attacks go head to head and Cassandra wins, keeping pace behind leaders Real Azuris)
MD9: OAS Royal FC 2–2 Mallox (The league's two most famous teams clash in an entertaining 2-2 draw, NT stars Arora and Engström both score)
MD9: Stoneshore United 1–0 Na'Malsille Mariners (Sam Herbjornsrud's long range bicycle-kick in the 21st minute might be the goal of the season)

Nomad Brotherhood are the story of the Sekundar Ligan so far, and have yet to lose a match. Predicted to finish 8th, they have exceeded all expectations nine matches in. They have allowed only five goals thanks to the brilliance tactical strategies of Tiago Peña and the leadership of RB Antoon Chapman (a Harlighet Ligan caliber player if you ask me). Favorites West Gundar and Olask aren't far behind though and will make a strong push upwards as the season continues. IFK Aldenskoett are another surprise of the first quarter-season, shoving their way into the promotion conversation with some world class goals from LAM Alex Gibson. Last year's Tredje Ligan winners Fort Archer have been disappointing so far and look uncomfortable in Sekundar Ligan.

The Tredje Ligan is a tight race so far, with seven sides within three points of 1st place. Longtime Tredje regulars Ziemelu Skaida are sitting pretty at the top for now, hoping for their first ever promotion to Sekundar Ligan. Favorites Keenan Athletic have played well but have settled for draws in too many games they deserved to win. Nuur Origins looks surprisingly strong in the early goings as well.

SEASON XI - Second Quarter



Image

Here we are, already halfway through the season! Real Azuris sits comfortably at the top of the table, seven points clear of the next closest team. If they can maintain their blistering pace, they'll have their second straight Harlighet Ligan championship wrapped up with a few weeks to spare. The impressive performance of Stoneshore United (2nd) is the surprise of season so far. Their defense is as sturdy as ever, and their offence has improved tremendously thanks to the dynamic strike partnership of Sam Herbjornsrud and Yuri Makarov. Cassandra City and Mallox are both two points behind Stoneshore, rounding out the UICA slots. Eastweald have tapered off since their fast start, sinking down into the middle of the table (surprise, surprise). Newly promoted side Versiaville SC have exceeded all expectations. I predicted them to finish 18th, but they're comfortably in the top half with a 7-6-5 so far. By contrast, sides that were celebrated in the preseason like OAS Royal FC, Ramusok United, Klyde FC and Crawford City FC are all struggling badly at this juncture and stuck in the bottom half. It's especially bad for Klyde. The club that won the league two seasons ago is now just one spot clear of the relegation zone. Only in the Harlighet Ligan, folks.

Biggest matches so far
MD10: Mallox 1–1 Real Azuris (Jimmy Kelly's equalizing header in the fourth minute of extra time deals Real Azuris their first draw of season)
MD10: Eastweald 3–2 Cassandra City (Old Weldenskirgen goes wild as Eastweald overcomes a 2-0 half time deficit to win 3-2 over Cassandra City)
MD11: Cassandra City 2–0 Klyde FC (Klyde continues to struggle, dropping to 15th. Richard Vencharde scored his first goal for Cassandra)
MD11: OAS Royal FC 2–0 Eastweald (Yrska and Na'Zogbia score within two minutes of each other to insert the Whites into the table's top five)
MD11: Morponte Fief 5–0 Mallox (In perhaps the most shocking upset of the season so far, Morponte embarrasses Mallox to the tune of 5 goals
MD12: AC Holmenkollen 2–1 Ramusok United (Dmytro Kurosawa knocks in two penalties to deny the Blues any points in this Ramusok derby)
MD12: Eastweald 1–1 Real Azuris (The top two teams on the table face off and share the spoils. Ipier Ubuntu and Jake Wiggins score)
MD13: Real Azuris 6–0 Cassandra City (Real Azuris tallies six goals, two of which were own goals, over sloppy Cassandra City. Can anyone stop em?)
MD13: Ramusok United 1–5 Mallox (Takahashi, Cabral and Engström all score as the Tigers silence Fire River Arena to get their fifth win)
MD13: Stoneshore United 2–1 AC Holmenkollen (Stoneshore continues to roll, sliding into 2nd place with a 2-1 victory over the Cedars)
MD14: Klyde FC 0–2 Versiaville SC (The Doves continue to struggle, losing at home to the Villagers. Asa Nemtheanga scored both goals)
MD14: Mallox 1–0 Stoneshore United (RB Tyson Keane is the unlikely hero, rocketing a long shot into the upper corner of the goal in extra time)
MD14: Eastweald 0–1 Centus Serpents (Milo Gregory's 2nd minute goal was enough for Centus to bump Eastweald out of a UICA slot)
MD14: OAS Royal FC 2–0 Real Azuris (OAS hands Real Azuris just their second loss on the season, outplaying the Harlighet Ligan leaders soundly)
MD15: Real Azuris 3–0 Klyde FC (The South Klydians easily got the better of the North Klydians in this Klyde Island derby)
MD15: Morponte Fief 1–0 OAS Royal FC (The Riders displace OAS in the top 3. Hickory turned in a beautiful Scarloff cross in the 26th minute)
MD15: Na'Malsille Mariners 7–1 FC Samotath (Almost halfway through the season, Na'Malsille finally gets their first win - and in extravagant fashion)
MD16: Mallox 7–3 FC Kaldukosic (Mallox smashes underachieveing FC Kaldukosic in a rare ten-goal game)
MD16: OAS Royal FC 0–1 Centus Serpents (Angus Howell's squad waltzes into The Royal Palace and breaks OAS hearts with an 88th minute winner)
MD16: Real Azuris 2–2 Morponte Fief (Morponte Fief's impressive form continues as they travel to Azuris and force the champs into a fun 2-2 draw)
MD17: Ramusok United 0–0 OAS Royal FC (The heated crosstown rivals finally meet this season but the match was uneventful)
MD17: Stoneshore United 0–2 Cassandra City (Tevin Lilley and Ace Newman both score for Stars in win. They pull ahead of Stoneshore into 2nd)

West Gundar FC has stringed together a series of impressive wins to displace Nomads at the top of Sekundar Ligan. It's very tight at the top though, with Olask and Helfin just one match away from the top spot as well. Those four clubs are currently slated for the SBCC. Pelethas United's defense is in shambles and has prevented the former top-flighters from having the first half they wanted.

SEASON XI - Third Quarter



Image

.

Biggest matches, MD19-26
MD19: Real Azuris 1–0 Stoneshore United (In a clash of Cosumar's current top two clubs, the defending champions assert their dominance)
MD19: Mallox 4–0 Crawford City FC (Mallox continues to get its moxie back, which is a bad sign for everyone else. 4 goals on CCFC is unheard of)
MD19: Stoneshore United 1–0 Morponte Fief (Two squads in top form of late, Stoneshore gets the better of Morponte with a late Makarov winner)
MD21: Real Azuris 1–3 FC Kaldukosic (FC Kal was on point and simply could not be stopped. First time Real Azuris has lost at home this year)
MD21: OAS Royal FC 1–3 Na'Malsille Mariners (Another shocker in week 21. The Mariners put the damper on a resurgent OAS side at Royal Palace)
MD22: Klyde FC 2–1 Mallox (Just as Mallox had gotten back into 2nd place, they drop all points at struggling Klyde and fall back to 4th)
MD22: Na'Malsille Mariners 1–0 Real Azuris (Despite the deep hole, Mariners prove they will fight like hell to escape relegation, taking down Azuris)
MD24: Mallox 2–0 Eastweald (The Tigers thwart their rivals' bid to displace them in the Top 3, drawing within a point of 2nd place Cassandra City)
MD24: Zakhoro Aces 3–0 Stoneshore United (Stoneshore at risk of stumbling down the final stretch after getting dismantled by lowly Zakhoro)
MD25: Cassandra City 3–11 Mallox (Mallox break the ALL-TIME RECORD for goals in a Harlighet Ligan match, with 11 in regulation against CC)
MD25: Stoneshore United 0–1 FC Kaldukosic (A meeting of two teams trending in opposite direction. Kaldukosic undefeated in last six matches)
MD25: OAS Royal FC 2–0 AC Holmenkollen (OAS wins this Ramusok derby to stay keep pace with Kaldukosic and Eastweald directly above them)
MD26: Klyde FC 0–1 Eastweald (With Stoneshore dropping points, this win allows Eastweald back into a UICA spot at the 75% mark of the season)
MD26: Mallox 1–0 OAS Royal FC (Takahashi's perfectly placed aerial cross was headed in by Kelly in the 86th minute to lift Mallox over a hated rival)

Nomad Brotherhood has had a spectacular season with 16 wins, though West Gundar FC continues to fight to stay within reach. Those two clubs have clearly been the class of the Sekundar Ligan through the first 75% of the season. Helfin Fief has gradually emerged as a threat over the last several matches as well, drawing within 2 points of West Gundar and surpassing Olask for the promotion playoff spot (3rd). Pelethas United have recovered from their disastrous first half and are within reach of snagging a SBCC spot if they continue their hot streak, though promotion is likely out of reach this year. Goldstaff City, by contrast, is stuck in a rut and have fallen from mid-table to the relegation zone.

Atletisk Surpronuk have carved a nice six point lead in Tredje Ligan. It seems the former Harlighet Liganers' time in Tredje has finally ended, barring a catastrophic collapse over the final eight matches. Keenan Athletic and AC Opjenheim currently hold the other possible promotion spots, though Sarmon, Ziemelu Skaida and Pristine Forest are close behind.

SEASON XI - Final Quarter

Cassandra City 1–0 Eastweald

The highlight of the weekend of Mallox's trip to Azuris to take on the Harlighet Ligan leaders, whom they trail by nine points. They seemed destined to cut the gap to six points after leading 2-nil at half time, but the Breakers were able to rescue a point with a pair of goals in the final ten minutes. At the other end of the table, Na'Malsille trounced fellow bottom-feeders Zakhoro to elevate themselves out of the relegation zone for the first time this season. Replacing them in the Bottom 3 is Serpents, who settled for a scoreless draw against visiting FC Samotath. OAS Royal FC and Ramusok United both picked up much-needed wins. With as tightly-packed as the Harlighet Ligan is this season, neither of them are out of contention for the UICA yet despite their massively disappointing records. After 1st place Real Azuris, the rest of the Top 10 are still packed like sardines, just waiting for any club to distinguish themselves from the pack. Cassandra City, currently in third, seem a good candidate to do so after their hard-earned victory over Cosumar Cup finalist Eastweald this weekend.

3rd place Cassandra City stumbled at Klyde this weekend, allowing 2nd place Mallox to put some more distance between them with a 5-0 thrashing of Morponte Fief. They keep pace with Real Azuris who won 2-1 at Samaj. The Mariners continued their late season resurgence, embarrassing visitors FC Kaldukosic to the tune of five goals, including a pair from Felix Jakobson, who is finally starting to come into his own and step out from Na'Safeh's shadow. Crawford City FC took home three points from a gritty defensive match with Stoneshore United. Few chances were had in this one, but new CCFC arrival Sigi Potter (Albundania) made the difference with his scorcher from the top of the box in the 30th minute. Eastweald and OAS Royal battled to a scoreless draw, both missing out on a chance to move up the table. AC Holmenkollen and Serpents also settled for a draw in a relegation battle, as did Versiaville and Zakhoro.

Centus Serpents 3–2 Mallox
Morponte Fief 1–0 Samaj FC
Real Azuris 0–0 Eastweald
OAS Royal FC 1–1 Cassandra City

Nothing makes sense in the Harlighet Ligan this season! Just when Mallox had started to really look unstoppable, they went out and lost 3-2 to the Centus Serpents of all teams. Tyson Keane looks every bit of 39 years old at right back and Gustaf Soder has had a rocky year in central defense. Upgrading in the back most be a priority for Mallox if they want to eventually dethrone Real Azuris from the top of the table. It was a golden chance for them to gain ground wasted, as Real Azuris couldn't produce a winning goal at home against Eastweald. The other marquee match of the weekend was Cassandra City vs. OAS Royal FC at The Royal Palace. Pablo Corderro scored for Cassandra in the 60th minute, but Talca Na'Zogbia equalized for OAS Royal in the 72nd, chipping it over the goalie and under the bar on a one-on-one breakaway. Ramusok United were stunned at home by crosstown "little brother" AC Holmenkollen. A gloating Cedars fan was stabbed in the parking lot after the match but the wound was not serious. The top 4 remains unchanged with Real Azuris, Mallox, Cassandra City and Eastweald rounding out the UICA berths.

Versiaville SC 3–1 Na'Malsille Mariners

Jacob Pandan's header that beat the goalie to the near post off a corner kick in the 50th minute was all Cassandra City needed to steal three points from league leaders Real Azuris in the weekend's primetime game. With Mallox losing to Ramusok United 1-0, Cassandra is now just one point away from 2nd. The pressure from underneath on the table did not relent, however, with 4th place Eastweald and 5th place OAS Royal both winning as well. The match between Samaj FC (17th) and Centus Serpents (15th) was a critical one in the relegation battle, with Serpents slithering out with a narrow 1-0 victory. That result is a sucker punch for Samaj, who will now be hard-pressed to even get up to the relegation playoff spot (16th).

Real Azuris 2–1 OAS Royal FC

With their 2-1 win over OAS Royal FC, Real Azuris clinched the Harlighet Ligan championship with three matches still to play. Since it was a home match, the supporters stormed the pitch gridiron-style in celebration of their team's back-to-back accomplishment. With 64 points (19-7-5), the next closest team (Cassandra City) is a whole eleven points behind them. And yes, Cassandra City is now in second thanks to their four-goal victory over hapless Morponte and Mallox's mishap down in Stoneshore. It was a big win for the Greys, who are only three points out of a UICA spot and needed to keep pace with an in-form Eastweald side. The Elves won 1-0 at Centus this weekend. The most entertaining match of the weekend, however, was the Zakhoro Aces rallying for a 4-3 home win over AC Holmenkollen. Three times the Cedars went up on the Aces, but Zakhoro managed to equalize each time and eventually score the winning goal in stoppage time. Zapt Arena was packed full of fans desperate to see their squad claw its way out of relegation, and they got their money's worth. The place went crazy when Belarmin Worsaw's left-footed bender snuck into the side of the net just before the final whistle. At the moment, Zakhoro is slated for outright relegation but are just four points from the relegation playoff spot.

FC Samotath 8–0 Na'Malsille Mariners
Crawford City FC 4–0 Versiaville SC

The newly crowned Harlighet Ligan champions, probably still hung over from last week's celebrations, lost to archrival Klyde FC 1-0 in the Klyde Island derby. The Doves are already disqualified from UICA contention (best they can still finish it 5th), but it's still an encouraging victory for the club. At the moment, Cassandra City (2nd), Mallox (3rd) and Eastweald (4th) are all level behind Real Azuris with 54 points each. These three could end up finishing in any order, but they are almost certainly Cosumar's Globe Cup qualifiers. Stoneshore United (5th, 49 points) and OAS Royal FC (6th, 48 points) could technically still sneak into the top 4 if Cassandra, Mallox or Eastweald err badly in their final two matches. At the opposite end of the table, not a single club is condemned to relegation yet for certain, but the outlook is bleak for Samaj (18th) and Zakhoro (17th). However, the Mariners' (16th) spectacular 8-0 loss to FC Samotath is a sign that Na'Malsille might be taking one of their places soon.

Stoneshore United 0–1 Eastweald
Ramusok United 2–0 Cassandra City

With just one match remaining, Eastweald slide into 2nd place with a 1-0 triumph in Stoneshore. A beautiful ball in by Mika Ostaltsov was turned in by Franz Auman in the 84th minute to seal their victory. Mallox (5-3 to FC Kaldukosic) and Cassandra (2-0 to Ram U) both cracked under pressure and conceded defeats to squads with nothing to play for. They now share 3rd place (15-9-9) and it will come down to the final Matchday to see whether the Tigers or Stars come out on top. OAS Royal FC's draw in Centus with the Serpents eliminates them from UICA play, meaning Cosumar's delegation for international play is set. Even though the Zakhoro Aces played inspired football in their 3-1 victory over Samaj FC, they will still join the Hunters in the Sekundar Ligan next season because Na'Malsille Mariners also won, staying four points up on the Aces with only a single match left. The Mariners, or possibly the Serpents (depending on next week's results), will proceed to a relegation playoff with the third-placed Sekundar Ligan side.

FC Samotath 2–0 Crawford City FC

Ugly football this week to be quite honest, as a majority of the clubs had little to play for and frustrations boiled over. Klyde FC's remarkable turnaround has to be one of the stories of the season despite failing to make the UICA. The Doves seemed dysfunctional and were in 13th with just eight matches to play and managed to finish in 5th just two points shy of the UICA. That's a 7-0-1 record in the final quarter of the season. If they had been in this sort of form from the start, they might have rivaled Real Azuris for the Harlighet Ligan crown. Eastweald's scoreless draw with the Sekundar Ligan-bound Zakhoro Aces was enough to secure 2nd place, their highest finish in club history. Cassandra City's 1-0 defeat to Stoneshore ensured it would take 4th place behind Mallox, which will take 3rd. The Tigers return to UICA play after a one year absence. It was a disappointing year for fans in Ramusok, regardless of their allegiance, as all three of the city's clubs finished short of expectations (Ram U in 7th, OAS Royal in 8th, and AC Holmenkollen in 14th). Of the three newly promoted clubs, two managed to stay up, with Versiaville SC finishing as high as 11th. By contrast, the Na'Malsille Mariners have been relegated from the Harlighet Ligan for the first time ever. Final standing below.

It has been seven years since they last played a Harlighet Ligan match. West GundarFC will return to the top flight after just one year under. Helfin Fief will also be going up for the first time in club history after they shocked Na'Malsille Mariners in the relegation playoff 3-2.

Keenan Athletic win the Tredje Ligan on goal differential over Atletisk Surpronuk. It is Keenan's first promotion to Sekundar Ligan. Atletisk Surpronuk is a club with history in the upper two divisions, finally making its long-awaited return. Pristine Forest had an inspiration end to the season, just barely managing to sneak past Sarmon FC into 3rd on the final Matchday. As a result, they got a crack at promotion but lost to AC Sepultura on penalties after a scoreless draw could not be broken. A heartbreaker for sure, but they will favorites to win the third division next year.

What is now the CLL once consisted of just six struggling franchises when it was founded 21 years ago, and only had twelve member teams seven years ago. In the short time since, lacrosse's popularity has risen rapidly thanks in part to Cosumar's sustained success in the World Lacrosse Championships. With this sudden boom in demand for lacrosse, the old lacrosse league has been reformed into the CLL and numerous expansion teams added (now 24 teams total). Most major markets in Cosumar now have a lacrosse presence. Though the CLL's attendance and TV ratings are still dwarfed by soccer (FSF) and american football (CFA), its surging popularity and high quality of play have made Cosumar something of an international leader for the sport.

Past Winners:
Season I: Olask Empire
Season II: ______???

League Format: 24 teams, half in Eastern and half in Western Conference. Single round robin season. Top 12 advance to a single-elimination playoff for the CLL Championship (called the Silver Cup). Seeds 1-4 have first round byes.
