Lions too much
Abrahams United Silver Sands’ quest for silverware in the Capelli Cup came to an end on Sunday night after their 4-3 defeat to Scotty’s Car Rentals St Andrew Lions as the Championship stage continued at the Wildey Turf.
The nightcap encounter saw a late Kyle “Papa Kyle” Gibson goal salvage a 1-1 draw for Claytons Kola Tonic Notre Dame with the University of the West Indies (UWI) Blackbirds to keep their slim chances of progression alive.
Last week’s 7-0 loss to BDFSP meant Silver Sands had to win to stay in the tournament and simultaneously a win would secure Lions’ progression to the quarter-finals with a game still to play.
Lions’ danger man Darico “Helmet” King easily grabbed the lead as early as the sixth minute after a skilful run past two defenders and a deft dispatch past Silver Sands’ goalkeeper Gabriel Layne. (NM)
