Goals aplenty in Premier League

Rendezvous, Weymouth Wales and the University of the West Indies all registered emphatic victories when the Digicel-sponsored Barbados Football Association’s Premier League competition continued last night.

With the action switched to the Wildey Astro Turf from the usual venue at the National Stadium due to concerns over the stands, UWI dealt Mackeson Brittons Hill a 4-1 drubbing in the first game of the evening, while Weymouth Wales trounced Direct TV Paradise 4-0. In the nightcap encounter Rendezvous blanked Notre Dame 3-0.

Rendezvous currently in second position with 17 points behind Wales on 18 in the standings, overcame Klaytons Kola Tonic Notre Dame thanks to goals from striker Miron Samuel in the 13th and 69th minutes and an own goal from defender Shane Mottley in the 45th minute.

Former Premier League champions Weymouth Wales were basically gifted their game by Paradise’s goalkeeper Jason Boxill who gave away two penalty kicks and also earned himself a red card.

In the 58th minute Boxill recklessly fouled a player and Wales’ striker Kemar Headley scored from the spot. Four minutes later Headley scored his second and in the 70th minute captain Jabbar Greene also scored. Another clumsy challenge by Boxhill in the 90th minute resulted in a second yellow card and his sending off as well as a penalty.

Brittons Hill got on the scoresheet in the 11th minute thanks to defender Antone Ellie. But that joy only lasted five minutes before striker Riverre Williams levelled the score. From there on it was the UWI show as Dario Harewood, Mario Harte and Corey Barrow scored in the 38th, 81st and 84th minutes respectively. (ML)
