It took only three minutes for St. Paul’s United F.C. to score the only goal of the match to give
the defending Premier League champions the 2021-2022 President’s Cup title on Wednesday
night. St. Paul’s defeated St. Peters 1-0 to clinch the title, as the Warner Park stadium was filled
with euphoria and football fans excited to see the return of football after about a year hiatus.
Petrez Williams was the goal scorer in the 3rd minute.
President of the St. Kitts and Nevis Football Association (SKNFA) hailed the return of football
and congratulated St. Paul’s on their victory. “I want to welcome everybody back to Warner
Park. Finally, we got football again. Congratulations to S.L. Horfords St. Paul’s United,
champions again,” Harris said. “We are working together as one football family,” he added.
Team Manager for St. Paul’s Derionne Edmeade was thrilled with the win. “I think the team did
well. If you look at how the game went, we came out, we scored early, we were able to hold on
to a one nil victory,” he said, commending St. Peters for a competitive encounter.
St. Paul’s goalkeeper Jamal Jeffers was also happy with the win. “It’s a great feeling…. we were
training hard and we just applied what we did in training, bring it on to the pitch and we won the
game,” Jeffers said.
Meanwhile Coach of St. Peters Anthony Nets Isaac, while disappointed with the loss, was
pleased with the performance of his team. I felt they play to the standard that I wanted them to
play. For the last 20 minutes of the first half and the second half, we outplayed St. Paul’s all the
way. Unfortunately, they scored a goal in the 3rd minute and we couldn’t get one…I am very
satisfied with how we played tonight,” the coach said.
