Sweet Elite

Top of the table team Elite SC rallied to a 1-0 victory over Roma FC last Sunday evening at the Annex Play Field in a keenly contested Cayman Island Football Association Premier League game.

Elite managed to break the deadlock in the 85th minute after a throw was awarded and taken by substitute Ever Scott.

He threw to the feet of Rene Carter who passed it to the deadly Donavan Godet who blasted past Roma keeper Tommy Morrison.

It was a hard fought game as Roma went dangerously forward several times sending the defense line of Elite into over drive.

Roma could have easily taken the three points if lady luck was on their side having beaten the defense line and left with only the keeper at their mercy on several occasions.

With a 0-0 score line at half time the tough West Bay boys came out in the second segment to face additional pressure from the underdogs. The brunt of the pressure was left on Rene Carter, Abijah Rivers Nicholas Ebanks and Joseph James in defense as they soaked up the pressure consistently.

Elite had to rise to the occasion to beat Roma who were obviously motivated by their recent 3-0 win over Tigers.

In the other game played at this same venue George Town drew 0-0 with Latinos in a lack-luster game. George Town came down to ten men in the 72nd minute but still managed to share the points.
