The biggest winners from Match Day 10 last weekend in the Heineken Sunday League were the quickly improving Prison side who at last seem to have finally found their rhythm. Without a win from their opening seven games, they now have won two games on the bounce.
This week they faced a confident Old Boys side that were coming off the back of a morale boosting victory against Triple Crown Wanderers. As it turned out, the game was a surprisingly one sided affair with Prison romping to a memorable 5-0 victory.
Old Boys quickly found themselves two down and soon after their striker Tommy Gribbin was red carded for two yellows. Prison’s goals came via Ernel Whitely, Bradley Grant, Wade Gordon with a double and Patrick Morrison.
The most significant and impressive result from the weekend was Boca Juniors’ 5-1 demolition of Agua. Boca’s Ken Downey scored first before Stefan Kormos equalised. Yannick Solomon got Boca’s second. Agua had a fantastic opportunity to equalise shortly after the interval but Daniel Cummings, on his Agua debut, skewed his shot past the post. Boca took a 3-1 lead when Henry Mitchell scored. Boca went on to complete the rout when Solomon got his second and Michael Broderick completed the scoring.
Elsewhere, league leaders Harry’s FC were given a real fright against MC Devils who went ahead through Dylan Hume. Harry’s rattled the cross bar twice but this was as close they got to scoring in the first half. Paul Hennessy’s debut was shortly to go from bad to worse when, with only ten minutes remaining, he inexplicably managed to lob his own goalkeeper from 20 yards, much to the disbelief of his team mates, to tie the score at 1-1.
Then the league’s top scorer, Floyd ‘Irons’ McKenzie, punished some hesitant defending among the Devils defenders to notch his side’s winner for Harry’s.
The final match of the weekend was between Triple Crown Wanderers and CML Claymores at the Ed Bush stadium in West Bay. Seba Mena found the corner of the net for Wanderers. CML fought back to equalise with the goal of the game when their captain, Chris Turrell, produced a delicate chip to lob Parry in the Wanderers goal.
Ricky Parsons gave the keeper no chance with a well placed volley for Wanderers. More Wanderers’ pressure paid off mid-way through the half as Johnny McLaughlin rounded off the scoring. CML remain rooted to the foot of the table after another forlorn search for a season’s first victory.
