After the match, Coach of Cayon, Al Edwards, said his team stuck to the game plan for most of the match. “We got early chances, scoring just two out of three or four. At halftime, we just wanted to be cautious, not too overly aggressive. Be careful, protect what you got,” he explained. He said the strategy in the second half was to absorb pressure and try and get another goal. But they had to change strategy as their main striker got injured. “It’s an overall good fight. Sometimes you have to (win) ugly, sometimes it can’t go all your way but you have (the points) and that’s what really matters,” he added.
Newtown’s Anthony Nets Isaac, said the team defended poorly in the first half, though they responded well in the second half. “In the first half we allowed the game to get away from us due to poor marking in the defensive area. But, we went in (at halftime) an came back and totally dominated the second half of the game, it’s just that we didn’t get the goals we wanted,” Isaac said. He said they will have to carry on the momentum into the next game and hope to get a positive result. “In the second half we dominated Cayon so we have to take that and carry it into the next game and hoping we don’t lose,” he said. The SKNFA Premier League continues with a doubleheader at St. Mary’s Park in Cayon on Friday.
