Coach Derren Huggins of Mantab said he was expecting the win, but not the goal tally. “I didn’t expect (that many) goals and the guys had more and more chances. I wish the scoreline could have been way bigger, to outscore everybody in the league,” he said. The Mantab coach highlighted that in this league, goal difference is very important. “We got to put away our chances and (get as many) goals as possible because goal difference (will play a role) in the end,”
For Ricky Tyson, Captain of Rivers, the team has been performing poorly because of the unavailability of some of their players. “We still haven’t found a proper 11 to start with. Today we started the game with ten players,” he said, adding that having a player sent off exacerbated the situation. “Some of the players are out injured and some have to work…we just have to work on boosting our squad and try and get numbers so we can at least have a (starting) 11,” he added.
Meanwhile, Newton Ground registered a shock win over KFC Trinity Challengers United 4-2 also in Verchilds.

Coach of Dieppe Bay Kalia Huggins said she expected her team to score more goals. “Today’s game went pretty well. I expected more goals but the sun was a bit hot. We just have to go back to the drawing board, more training, work on our weak areas and for next game, we will be good,” Huggins said. Captain of Hardtimes Kyron Liburd said despite the loss, his team is gradually finding its way. “We had a few clear-cut chances; keeper did well but with a little more work I think we will do well,” he said.
