Tahir Hanley got a consolation goal in the 53rd minute for Village, but for most of the match, they never looked like they were in a position to overturn the results. Coach Austin Dico Huggins said with round 1 finished, he believed St. Peters performed creditably well. “We lost some games that I thought we should have won but nevertheless, that’s the game. But (against) the bigger teams, we were able to compete. So far, none of them have beaten us,” he said, adding that they hope to do bigger things in the second round.
Village’s assistant coach Vaughn Patrick said his team was lackadaisical in the first half. “We played a bit better in the second half, we controlled the tempo of the game. In h first half, we allowed the guys to come to us. We were lackadaisical,” he said.
In the night’s other match, Newtown United drew 1-1 with Security Forces.
