BDF march all over Gall Hill
THE BIG BOOTS of the Barbados Defence Force’s (BDF) footballers are marching on while Claytons Kola Tonic Notre Dame are following in their footsteps.
After the Dames sent the winless Families First St John Sonnets crashing to their fifth straight loss with a 6-0 drubbing in the opening game of a Digicel Premier League double-header at the Wildey AstroTurf last Thursday night, BDF followed with a solid 2-0 triumph over ten-man Pride of Gall Hill.
The victory, BDF’s fourth in succession in the space of 12 days, carried the unbeaten army side to 13 points while the Dames, behind DeCarlo Jemmott’s hat trick in the sixth, 50th and 57th minutes, moved into second place with ten points.
Zico Edmee (53rd), new acquisition Kadeem “Buju” Atkins, with a 70th-minute penalty, and teenager Akeem Hill (74th), who came on for an injured Dwayne Mars, were the other goal scorers for the Dames, who had the luxury of substituting veteran John “Nobby” Parris for Foundation schoolboy Shane Mottley in the 65th minute after leading 4-0.
