Gaza is calling the tune again


Elite marksman Dwayne ‘Gaza’ Wright just can’t keep scoring. The Jamaican striker has hit 13 already this season, including three hat-tricks and on Sunday he was on target again, this time in a 2-0 win against Roma United, his old team. Alex Belcher was the other Elite marksman.  

Gaza has a habit of scoring against Roma and they must dread this fixture knowing he will be lining up again. Gaza’s nickname is through his appreciation of Vybz Kartel’s music and he the striker is certainly calling the tune in the Premier League at the moment.  

That win also catapulted reigning league champs Elite to the top on 19 points, one ahead of Scholars International who remain unbeaten in eight games but have drawn three times.  

Biggest victory of the day was the 5-0 thrashing of Tigers by Bodden Town who shared the goals between Danu Smith, Jordan Thompson, Jorronie McLean and Charlo Mclean who hit two. McLean and Bodden Town captain Yefry Calderon have scored six times this season and on five goals apiece are Carson Fagan and David Harding.  

Future Sporting Club lost 1-0 to George Town after an early strike by David ‘Starky’ Harding. George Town could have won more comfortably had Tex Whitelocke scored from his saved penalty and Davian ‘YD’ Smith had scored from close range.  

Most surprising result was the 2-2 draw Cayman Athletic managed against Scholars International. Roy Forbes crashed in an early goal for Scholars which seemed to herald an easy win, but a superb free-kick by Matthew Suberan levelled. Nahun Rodriguez gave Scholars another lead in the second half before Santangelo Bush got a deserved equaliser for coach Gillie Seymour’s young and inexperienced side.  

At the Ed Bush Stadium this Sunday, the early match, kick-off 5pm is between Bodden Town and Cayman Athletic and the 7pm game is between George Town and Scholars International.  

At the TE McField Annex, the early game is between Future and Roma United and the 7pm game sees Tigers against Elite.
