Of all the things that we know about football, we would all agree that football is very unpredictable. Last night’s game was a testimony to that. RAMS Village Superstars came up against Cayon FC and the results were a shock to all.
At the end of the first half the game was still nil nil (0-0). Village’s fans seemed quite upset that their team was having trouble scoring against a team that was in the bottom three. At the beginning of the second half Village tried numerous times to score and even had a chance when a Village player fired a shot which hit the post and ricocheted. This was the same play that created a goal scoring opportunity for Cayon which they took advantage of and scored.
What a celebration that was for Cayon’s fans, their faces lit up while the Superstars’ fans still sat stunned. This now puts Cayon in seventh(7th), ahead of St. Thomas Trinity Strikers.
The second game featured Harris Paint St. Peters and Mantab. Prior to this game, Mantab had only won one(1) game while Harris Paint St. Peters hadn’t won any in the second round. The game seemed to be quite an even matchup as no team was able to score in the first half, both coaches had to go and rethink their strategy if they were going to gain maximum points from this game. It was coach Dennis Martin whose strategy finally reaped rewards as Bejay Tuckett scored St. Peter’s first goal. Eight minutes later, Kyhron Phillip scored another for St. Peters and just as the game was about to be called to an end it was Dionis Stevens to make the game 3 nil in favour of Harris Paint St. Peters.
This puts Mantab into ninth place and St. Thomas/Trinity Strikers in the eight spot. Premier action continues at the Warner Park Stadium tomorrow (Saturday 28th) and Sunday 29th April.
