Conaree Fireballs International and Trafalgar Southstars scored big wins on Thursday in SKNFA Division 1 action at St. Mary’s Park in Cayon. Conaree crushed 607 Construction Lodge Patriots 5-0, while Southstars condemned TGE Dieppe Bay Eagles to their first loss of the season 3-1. In the Conaree match, Orlando “Ack” Mitcham scored the first goal in the 15th minute, Kemuel Sharry scored two goals in the 32nd and 81st minutes, and Ossie Bute and Kaviere Nisbett in the 39th and 80th minutes respectively. Coach of Conaree Fireballs Keneisa Byron said the team came into this match knowing they had to win. “Honestly, we were just making sure that they attack together, defend together; trying to keep the team compact when we don’t have (the ball),” she said. “We knew based on our last game, we could not lose tonight so I am happy for the win but…they could have done better,” she said.
In their last encounter, Conaree Fireballs lost 1-0 to Trafalgar Southstars and that motivated the team to come into Thursday night’s match with a different mentality, Coach Byron said. “Even though it wasn’t a big loss, it was still a loss regardless…going forward hopefully we go on a winning streak because the aim is to go to Premier League,” she added.
