Brittons Hill make Milan pay penalty
Mackeson Brittons Hill made Youth Milan pay the penalty for a poor defensive job with a 3-1 victory in the Digicel Premier League kicked off at the Wildey Football Astroturf on Wednesday evening.
Referee Matthew Alleyne was perfectly positioned to spot two infringements by Youth Milan defenders in the 18-yard box and awarded two first half penalties.
After Shane Hinds fouled Arantees Lawrence, lanky striker Hendy Richards stepped up to take the penalty. Youth Milan’s experienced goalkeeper Adrian Chase partially saved the spot kick but the rebound fell straight to Richards who scored.
Then in the 40th minute, Travis Hinds tripped Lawrence in the box. Brittons Hill captain Riviere Williams converted the penalty.
Kenroy Skinner pulled back a goal for Youth Milan in the 63rd minute with a delicate back heel but Lawrence finally got a goal of his own in the second minute of injury time to push Brittons Hill into second place on 19 points, four adrift of leaders Barbados Defence Force.
At Bridgefield in St Thomas, Dayrells Road came from a two-goal deficit to beat Cosmos 4-3 with Tristan “Fishy” Parris scoring in the 68th and 93rd minutes. Kareem Frederick (13th) and Maradona Lavine (31st) had given Cosmos a 2-0 lead but Curtis Odle (34th) cut the lead to 2-1 at half-time before Parris equalized. Lavine made it 3-2 a minute later but Brian Bynoe tied the scores at 3-3 in the 76th.
With Cosmos down to ten men after David Forde was redcarded, Parris grabbed the winner in the third minute of stoppage time. (EZS)
