Southstars Earn First Victory of the Season, Conaree, Newtown Held

Trafalgar Southstars registered their first win of the season with a dramatic 4-2 victory over TGE
Dieppe Bay Eagles on Saturday in the SKNFA Premier League at the Warner Park Football
Stadium. Ronaldo Nisbett got Southstars off the mark with a stunning turnaround strike in the
15 th minute to send his team into halftime with a slender lead. The second half was a complete
turnaround for Dieppe Bay and for a moment it seems they were on course to wining the match.
Shawn Dasent equalized for Dieppe Bay in the 48 th minute and Georgel Dickenson doubled the
lead in the 63rd minute.

Southstars however seemed to have found a new gear after that goal and five minutes later
Shomari Hanley found the equalizer for his team. Nisbett found the back of the net again in the
80 th minute and Dylon Morton with a brilliant solo effort shrugged off two defenders and slot one
pass the Dieppe Bay goalkeeper to seal the 4-2 win. This was a welcome result for Southstars
after getting their first point of the season with a midweek goalless draw versus Saddlers. The
SKNFA Premier League Live commentary team provided analysis of the match. “Good week for
Southstars. Getting their first point and now getting their first victory,” said commentator
Esington Watts in the Premier League Postgame Show “It was an enjoyable game…normally
bottom of the table clash you might find it one sided…it seems more competitive at the bottom
of the table than at the top.”
