Meistriliiga round 7: Leitan puts Kuressaare to the sword

Levadia hat trick hero: Vitali Leitan

Levadia put in a devastating second half performance last night to thrash Kuressaare 5-0 at Maarjamäe. With the score goalless at half time, Kuressaare looked like they might pull off another shock in the capital following their recent win over Flora. But Vitali Leitan came off the bench to replace Taavi Laurits just after the half hour and scored a second half hat trick  to quash any hopes Kuressaare had of gaining at least a point. Leitan's goals were supplemented by two from Janar Toomet as Levadia continue to show their quality. 

Flora recovered from an early setback to beat Paide 1-0 in Tallinn. Flora goalkeeper Stanislav Pedõk was sent off on 12 minutes for a clash with Paide defender Mait Nõmme, an incident in which Nõmme was also booked. I am yet to see a video of the incident, but I am guessing it was for handbags of some sort. Substitute goalkeeper Mait Toom came off the bench replacing striker Martti Pukk as Flora changed shape. But Paide could not make their numerical advantage count and Flora netted a late winner through Gert Kams.

Tammeka picked up their first win of the season beating Tallinna Kalev 2-1 in Tartu. Marek Tšernjavski put Tammeka ahead after 12 minutes only for Edwin Stüf to equalise for Kalev shortly before half time. Tammeka kept pushing and were rewarded with a winning goal from Janno Saks on 85 minutes. 

Kalju stay top of the Meistriliiga table with their fifth win from their first six matches, a routine 2-0 win at Sillamäe. The goals came from Damiano Quinteri, his third of the season already, and Oliver Konsa. 

No goals or highlights have surfaced yet (that I can find) but will post up when available.
