The summer slate of games resumed for the Northern Mariana Football Association Men's League on Sunday with two matches at Oleai Sports Complex. Fiesta Inter cruised to their thrid straight win as they took out Wild Bill's, 3 to 0. The Bangladeshi Sports Club won the other contest with a 4 to 1 victory against PTI.

Arkie Reusora started the scoring for Fiesta Inter with a goal in the 22'. Fiesta added two more scores after the break with Koichiro Nakamura finding the back of the net from long range at 48' and Masatoshi Otsuka completing a penalty kick at the 80' mark to wrap up the scoring. MD "Mafi" Islam anchored the goalkeeping duties for Fiesta with another strong game.

Fiesta Inter sits alone at the top of the standing with nine points in their bid for the Tapachao Cup. A draw next week will ensure Fiesta Inter a place in the Championship game on September 9th.

The Bangladeshi Sports Club got their first win in the regular season with a 4 to 1 win against PTI. Leading the scoring for BSC was Jahangir Hossein with two goals. BSC enjoyed additional tallies from Li Yong Lie and Li Dong Ri.

PTI got their lone goal from Kanghyin Shin at the 55 minute. It was his second score of the season.

FC Arirang, fresh off a triumphant tournament in the Korean Football Association President's Cup last weekend, had a bye.

Next week's matches will display Fiesta Inter against BSC at 2:30 PM and FC Arirang taking on Wild Bill's at 4:30 PM. PTI will be off.
