Mons Snatch The Title!

Mons Calpe SC claim the Challenge Group Trophy in dramatic fashion!

Tuesday 25 April 2023

Mons Calpe SC this weekend clinched the Challenge Group trophy in dramatic fashion as they produced an astounding comeback against College 1975 FC on the final Matchweek of the season to claim top spot.

Going into the weekend level on points with Manchester 1962 FC, Mons Calpe found themselves ahead solely based on their head-to-head record, and required a win to guarantee themselves the title.

Having already triumphed over College 1975 FC twice earlier on in the season, Mons Calpe would have been confident going into the fixture on Saturday afternoon, however, the eventual champions would find themselves 2-0 down with less than 20 minutes to go, before an unlikely comeback took place.

Two quick-fire goals from Gallardo Monje (75th minute) and Dos Santos (76th minute) brought Mons Calpe level, before 16-year-old substitute Ashton Hancock latched onto a rebounded shot to slot home the title-clinching goal for Mons in the 82nd minute.
