THE UNIVERSITY OF THE WEST INDIES’ (UWI) good run of form continued last Thursday night as they secured an important 3-2 victory over Direct TV Paradise at the Barbados Football Association’s Wildey Astroturf.

But Weymouth Wales squandered the lead twice and gave up the opportunity to finish the first half of the season on top of the Premiership table after they drew 2-2 with the Barbados Defence Force Sports Programme (BDFSP).

UWI earned their third consecutive victory with a spirited victory over the guys from Dover. UWI came from behind twice, and with a player down, to finish the first round on 17 points.

Paradise opened the scoring in the 34th minute, thanks to a header from defender Zico Phillips. This lead lasted until half-time, but Mario Harte made things level five minutes after the interval with a well drilled left-footed drive to the far post.
