Severe beating for Pinelands

Direct TV Paradise dished out one of the more severe beatings in the 2015 Digicel-sponsored Barbados Football Association’s Premier League season Thursday night when they trounced Solaris Pinelands 8-0 at the Wildey, St Michael Astro Turf.

Two players registered hat-tricks with Armando Lashley scoring in the 15th, 69th and 82nd minutes, while Jabarry Chandler got a taste of the feast in the 24th, 40th and 76th minute. Ackeel Applewhaite in 91st minute and Gregg Mandeville, a minute later, completed the rout.

It was testimony to Paradise’s dominance that despite the lopsided scoreline, they actually missed a few chances.

The goal rush continued in the second game of the night, though this was a much closer affair between Rendezvous and Silver Sands, ending in a 5-3 victory for Rendezvous.

Cameron Lewis was in a benevolent mood when he scored an own goal to gift Rendezvous a 1-0 lead in the 17th minute. He got it right in the 23rd minute, though, when he scored for his own Silver Sands to make it 1-1.

National Carl Joseph scored a brace in quick succession, the 25th and 27th minutes, to make the score 3-1. Then it was the turn of the Vincentian dynamic duo of Shandel and Myron Samuel to add strikes in the 40th and 63rd minutes to make the
score 5-1.

Rendezvous were perhaps guilty of taking their feet off the gas as the second-half was approaching a close as Mario Kinch in the 72nd minute and Jamal Pinder, the 78th, would add goals to give the final score a more respectable look.
