Defense Reigns Supreme In Playoff Openers

Both opening matches in the inaugural SKNFA Super Six Playoffs at the Warner Park ended 0-0.
But despite the lack of goals, there was much action that got fans at the edge of their seats. SOL
IAS Conaree F.C. did battle with Flow 4G Cayon Rockets. Both teams had chances to score, but
it was Cayon that had the best opportunity towards the end of the match, but missed. It wasn’t a
surprise that the man of the match was Conaree goalkeeper Clifford Samuels who performed
exceptionally to keep Conaree in the game. In the night’s other match, the much fancied S.L.
Horsfords St. Pauls had an awakening as they didn’t pull off a big win against St. Peters F.C. as
they might have hoped, a team they defeated handily in recent times.

After the match Coach Azem Jenkins of Conaree said his team did well but could have gotten a
different result if they were more consistent. “I think it was a good game, a competitive one. I
think both teams fought hard. Both teams had chances, didn’t score so it ended up 0-0,” he said.
“We need to be just more consistent defensively and attacking wise…and take chances.”
Cayon goalkeeper Valentine Anthony said he is satisfied with his team’s performance. “The
game was a good game; intense. Both teams had chances to score but I think my team played the
better ball. We had more chances especially at the end. We had a clear chance on goal but
unfortunately we missed it….we just have to go hard on Saturday (their next match),” he said.
Meanwhile, the St. Peters/St. Pauls match featured great goalkeeping from both teams and an
excellent defensive performance from Azeem James of St. Peters F.C. who neutralized St. Pauls
striker Keithroy Freeman to keep the match evenly keeled. Man of the Match Azeem James
expressed satisfaction in the result. “We still pleased about the draw…next game we would have
to win and get three points,” he said.

Petrez Williams of St. Paul’s is looking ahead at the next game. “It wasn’t’ the best. As a team
we are not happy with (the draw) but nevertheless we still have to be thankful,” he said. “Next
game, we have to come out and try to execute our chances as early as possible and try to finish
the game by the first half and do what we do best—just defend,” Williams said.
The next match in the Super Six Playoffs is Rams Village Superstars and Hobson Enterprises
Garden Hotspurs at 7pm Wednesday at the Warner Park. All playoff games will be broadcast
live on SKNFA Pay Per View. Visit the SKNFA website: www.sknfa.com and click Live
