The Canada Life Premier League’s goal-laiden start to the season continued on Saturday with the day’s five games coughing up 39 goals.
Therefore it’s not a surprise that the second Team of the Week of the campaign hit 17 goals between them at the weekend.
Causing most of the damage was the front three of Furo Davies (St George’s), Sean Doyle (Corinthians) and Dan Hattersley (St Mary’s).
The latter makes the hypothetical line-up for the second successive week after bagging four goals against DHSOB to take his tally for the Bowl outfit to nine in two games.
Also netting a four-goal salvo at the weekend was St George’s man mountain Davies.
The former Rushen and Colby striker returned to the starting XI with a bang, as he helped Geordies see off a stubborn Pulrose 5-1 at Glencrutchery Road.
Completing the attacking trio is Sean Doyle, who also made a triumphant return to the Corinthians XI this week.
After missing the opening-day defeat by Geordies, Doyle scored two goals and was a thorn in the side of the Douglas Athletic defence all game as the Whites scored a 11-2 win.
The TotW’s four-man midfield is also littered with goals.
Corinthians Ste Whitley netted a hat-trick as the Ballafletcher outfit ran riot in the second-half of the encounter at Springfield Road.
Former Corinthians’ man Dan Simpson takes one of the side’s wing berths after capping a good performance with a goal in new club Peel’s 6-1 win over Marown.
Team-mate Lee Gale also slots into the side’s midfield ranks after netting a brace in the win over the Crosby outfit.
Peel, St Mary’s, St George’s, Rushen and Laxey boast the division’s 100 per cent records so far.
The latter side continued their impressive start to the term with a 6-0 win over promoted Ramsey.
John Palmer’s youngsters have now netted 13 in two games. Summer signing from Corinthians, Jack Ridings, was among the Miners’ scorers at the weekend and he earns his maiden TotW stripes after shining against the northerners.
Ridings’s Laxey team-mate Max Murley lines up in the side’s three-strong defence, the defensive midfielder keeping his place in the TotW for the second successive week after helping his side to keep a clean sheet.
St Mary’s duo Jack McVey and Karl Clark also helped their side to keep its goal intact against DHSOB, the former picking up the Man of the Match honours in the 7-0 win.
With so many big scores it was a tough week for goalkeepers, but Pulrose stopper Craig Cowin claimed the TotW’s coveted number one shirt after he limited St George’s to five on Saturday.
Stuart Kneen scoops the latest Referee of the Week honours after impressing with the whistle during Peel’s win over Marown.
