St. Peters FC registered their 5th consecutive win of the season from their last six matches, after they edged Bath United 2-1 on Mother’s Day in the SKNFA Premier League at Warner Park. Tyquan Terrell was the hero for St. Peters scoring the team’s two goals in the 9th and 52nd minutes. Bath’s goal came from a defensive error— Devion Harvey (St. Peters) scoring an own goal in the 32nd min.
The game was hotly contested in the end as Bath received three red cards—two of which were players:
Trevon Dunrod (Bath) 74th min
(Bath Kit Manager) Lester Dorset 75th min
(Insulting & abusive language)
Vibert Stephen 75th min

Coach Austin Huggins of St. Peters said he wasn’t happy with the performance of the team but was pleased with gaining the three points. “I am not quite happy with the performance of the team but we managed to get the three points, which is most important. I believe we were a bit flat today. We were missing a few key players but not an excuse for the performance,” he said.
Coach Alex Claxton of Bath said he knew the match was going to be a tough one, considering they defeated them in round 1. “We know that St. Peters was going to come back at us and we know it was going to be a well-fought game,” Claxton said. That victory for St. Peters has shot them up the table to third place. Meanwhile, in the day’s earlier match, Fast Cash Saddlers and Newtown United ended in a 1-1 draw.

Saddlers Coach Samuel Phipps said his team failed to put away their chances. “We had the chances early, we had the chances in the second half, but we failed to put them away,” Phipps said. “That has been the script for a few games now in the league. We can’t wait until the opponent scores before we start playing.”
For Coach Anthony Isaac, the draw, the 6th of the season is unacceptable. “That’s six draws of the season, which is unacceptable to us, especially when we are ahead all the time,” Isaac said.
The SKNFA hosted fan appreciation day on Sunday, Mother’s Day, giving free access to both games while also presenting gifts to the first 50 mothers who attended the matches. Mothers of players of the teams that played, technical staff, and SKNFA staffers were also recognized.
