After the match, the manager of St. Paul’s Austin Lewis said the team still has not hit its full stride but was happy with the three points. “I think (the win) is important because as you see we are trying to (hit) our stride. We are kind of getting there but as usual, we still have work to do,” Lewis said.
Village Superstars Coach Stephen Clarke said the team played well in patches and they need a consistent performance if they are to do better in the league. “We just have to do it a little more consistent,” Clarke said. “It’s just unlucky, every game we have an injury and we have to start again so it’s kind of up and down.”
Meanwhile, home MFCR Old Road United Jets drew 0-0 with Fast Cash Saddlers FC. “

Coach Samuel Phipps of Saddlers, said while he wanted a win, he viewed the point as a good result. “Thank God for bringing us here and also the players. They played a hard game as it wasn’t an easy condition to play in. The first half (the field) was wet, and they endured and the game ended 0-0. So, all kudos to God first and the players after,” he said. “Some of the players were ready to play this game, absolutely ready to play this game and so we came and delivered. It was a hard-fought battle, but we delivered,” Phipps added.
