Dames down Brittons Hill
Claytons Kola Tonic Notre Dame logged an important victory to move into second place in the Digicel Premier League, while the pride returned to Gall Hill’s football on Saturday night at the Wildey AstroTurf.
The Dames, courtesy a 28th-minute goal by DeCarlo Jemmott, edged Mackeson Brittons Hill 1-0 to move to 13 points, one more than their opponents.
Barbados Defence Force (BDF) were leading the standings on 14 points before last night’s game against Cosmos.
Jemmott slotted home after a superb piece of dribbling by Dwayne Mars, who weaved his way through the Brittons Hill defence following an exchange of passes with John Hawkesworth.
Mars, however, had to leave the field early in the second half, a victim of a foul by Luther Watson.
In the second match, Gall Hill thrashed a disorganized Dayrells Road 4-0 after leading 3-0 at half-time.
Comeback kid Sherwin Success opened the scoring in the third minute with a diving header, and Malcolm “Buju” Marshall made it 2-0 in the 29th minute with a cracking shot which sailed through the hands of goalkeeper Damien Simpson.
Dayrells Road’s woes were compounded when key defender Christopher Sealy had to be stretchered off the field with a leg injury, sustained in a collision with Success.
Jason “Bullet” Goodridge, who had an outstanding game, fittingly got on the scoresheet in the 35th minute, and substitute Tyrell Gibbons rounded off the scoring in the 78th minute.
By then, Dayrells Road were down to ten men after captain Ryan James was ejected for his second bookable offence by referee Gillian Martindale.
Dayrells Road’s injury woes continued as Simpson hurt his neck in effecting a save and had to be replaced by Andre Small. (EZS)
