TEENAGE SENSATION Niall Reid-Stephen’s second hat-trick of the season inspired the University of the West Indies (UWI) Blackbirds to an 8-0 demolition of RBC Capital Markets Barbados Soccer Academy (BSA) as the Barbados Football Association’s Premier League resumed on Saturday night at the Wildey Turf.

Local rivals Clayton’s Kola Tonic Notre Dame and Brittons Hill United contested a fiery derby to kick off proceedings but had to settle for a point each following their 1-1 draw. Empire Club strolled to a 4-0 victory over Youth Milan following the resumption of the league after a short hiatus due to the 2019 Windward Islands Tournament, in which invited guests Barbados placed a commendable second.

UWI were keen to avenge their defeat to Barbados Soccer Academy earlier in the season and benefited from their control of possession in the 11th minute. Reid-Stephen was played in behind the defence and the teenager calmly slid the ball under frantic goalkeeper Zacharry Parris.

Akeene Browne converted a delightful chip for 2-0 in the 44th minute and was then on hand to convert the rebound with his head after Reid-Stephen’s right-footed shot crashed off the crossbar in first-half stoppage time.
