RGN Elite FIFA League Week 11 Review
leOmeS pulled away from El Rey at the top of the table, Zarate got himself out of the drop-zone, and hibidi now finds himself in 2nd place despite not having played a single game this weekend. With significant movement in league positions among the top 3, match day 11’s results could go a long way in determining where the title eventually ends up.

Flash.hibidi 3-0 Flash.El Rey [Disqualification]
El Rey’s lack of maturity was evident here, as he missed the reporting cutoff time to hand hibidi a 3-0 default win. The youngster will surely be kicking himself - Hibidi moves up to second in the table, while El Rey drops to third.
Zarate 3-0 MiTH.KirosZ
Zarate scored a big win in Sunday’s relegation battle against a hapless KirosZ. After scoring 4 points in two games at the tail end of the FIFA 13 leg of the league, KirosZ has been brought back down to earth (and the foot of the table) with two consecutive losses against Singaporean players. With only 7 games to go, it is increasingly likely that KirosZ will be playing in the Open Cups next season.

Infinite.leOmeS 3-3 proA.Hakumenfox
The leOmeS-Hakumenfox encounter was quite simply the weekend’s most entertaining game. leOmeS was in cruise control with 7 minutes to go, before the Vietnamese hit a quick-fire double to lead 3-2 on 90 minutes. Hakumenfox all but had the win in the bag with only seconds remaining, but somehow contrived to give possession away with a risky cross-field ball, allowing leOmeS to storm into the box to score a deserved equalizer. Despite the dropped points, Hakumenfox has finally halted a run of 3 straight losses, and will head into next week’s match against KirosZ in better spirits.

Infinite.leOmeS 3-0 Flash.El Rey
El Rey’s disqualification earlier in the day was probably playing on his mind as he approached his game with Malaysia’s most dominant player. The young Singaporean set out to dominate possession outside leOmeS’ penalty area, but lacked any form of creativity to unlock a watertight defence. leOmeS broke with staggering efficiency all afternoon and bypassed El Rey’s high defensive line with ease, eventually finishing the afternoon with a 3-0 win. leOmeS maintains his grip on top spot, and looks to be the odds-on favourite with 7 league games remaining.
