BDFSP demolish Academy
REIGNING PREMIER LEAGUE champions Barbados Defence Force Sports Programme (BDFSP) made their Capelli Cup intentions crystal clear with a 5-1 victory against Barbados Soccer Academy (BSA) on Saturday night at the Wildey Turf.
Midfielder Renaldo Trim bagged an unlikely hat-trick, inclusive of a sensational pile driver from 28 yards out in what was the “soldiers’’ opening group E fixture.
Earlier on the match card, two late goals from Nathan Skeete saw group F’s Whitehall Titans comfortably past St Peter rivals Cosmos, while the skill and will of seasoned veterans Kent Hall and Renaldo “Pee Wee” Gilkes was not enough to help Kickstart who fell 2-1 to Blackspurs.
BDFSP coach Asquith Howell named a strong starting side against Fitzgerald Carter’s Academy and it would be the ‘soldiers’ enjoying the majority of possession in the opening minutes.
BSA created a precious opening against the run of play in the sixth minute but unfortunately could not make it count.
Raheim Sargeant then came close for BDFSP but his effort from 20 yards kissed the crossbar on its way out.
In the 13th minute, BSA forward Romario Dennie gave his team the lead in stupendous fashion with a glorious whipped free kick leaving Barbados’ first choice goalie Kishmar Primus stranded.
