Meanwhile, in the night’s other match Mervin Lewis rescued Flow 4G Cayon Rockets with a hat
trick to defeat KFC United Old Road Jets 3-1. After taking the lead from a defensive error in the
8th minute, Cayon failed to hold on to that lead in the first half conceding just before half time.
Tiquanny Williams notched that penalty home in the 41st minute and earned a yellow card at
the same time for seemingly arguing with the referee. That came back to haunt Tiquanny as he
earned a second yellow card in the 89th minute and was sent off. That sending off reflected an
emotional performance for most of the match from Old Road as despite having the run of play
in the second half and placing Cayon under pressure, they failed to score.
Instead, they committed wayward fouls that eventually cost them the match. Phillson Wattley earned a second yellow card for an errant tackle in the 67th minute leaving Old Road with ten men.
That swung the pendulum in Cayon’s favor and once again Mervin Lewis found the back of the
net after latching on to a loose ball from a free kick in a prominent area in the 85th minute.
Lewis sealed the victory with a long shot from several yards out after discovering the
goalkeeper way off his line in no man’s land in the third minute of stoppage time. This was a
welcome performance from Lewis who was injured in the second half and it appeared as if he
would have been substituted, only for him to continue the match and complete his hat-trick.
