Scholars tame Tigers

Scholars International seem to have
got past their rough patch and returned to winning ways.

They beat the bounding Tigers 2-1
at the TE McField Stadium on Sunday in an entertaining televised match.

Roy Forbes opened the scoring after
playing a clever one two with his brother Marshall midway through the first
half for Scholars’ first goal.

Early in the second half, the
tireless Tigers got the reward they so richly deserved when Faulandino Andino
smacked a shot in to equalise.

Teams are always most vulnerable
after scoring and this was the case for Tigers who had worked so hard to get on
level terms.

Within a minute Scholars restored
their lead when Maurice Brown headed in at the far post from a corner.

In the game earlier at the same
venue, Bodden Town’s youngsters out ran and out fought the more seasoned Roma
side.

Charlo McLean scored twice, the
first from a penalty, for Bodden Town, before Kenroy Graham pulled one back.
Arvid Harris got Bodden Town’s third.

Bodden Town squandered many chances
early in the second half and must have been worried when player-coach Phillip
Gayle rose majestically to head in for Roma’s second.

But Jerome Graham sealed it for Bodden
Town to make it 4-2 but they really should have won by a much bigger margin.

In the matches at the Ed Bush
Stadium, Joey Ferrone and Deon Brandon (penalty) gave Future a 2-1 victory over
George Town. Gustavo Aluisio scored for George Town.

In the later match, Sunset and
Elite drew 2-2. Rictchie Addison and Ian Lomas scored for Sunset and the Elite
scorers were Jason Ebanks and Hank Parchment.
