All eyes on Elite and Scholars

The attention will be focused on the big game between Scholars International and Elite at the Ed Bush field on Sunday. It kicks off at 7pm with the two top scorers squaring up.

Dwayne ‘Gaza’ Wright scored his 16th of the season last weekend as Elite overcame a spirited Tigers side after a thrilling match which ended in Elite’s favour from a penalty shoot-out after it finished 2-2. Tigers typically battled all the way but Elite held their nerve better in the shoot-out.

Mark Ebanks is the Scholars skipper in a rich vein of scoring, having netted 12 times so far, including a hat-trick in the FA Cup last Sunday in the 5-0 drubbing of North Side.

Yefry Calderon has netted 11 times for Bodden Town who play George Town at the TE McField in the late game on Sunday. Future face Tigers in the earlier Annex match. Future are bottom of the Premier League but at least they got a confidence booster last weekend in the 3-1 extra time FA Cup win over Cayman Brac.

Miguel Simms has scored nine times for Tigers and wants to find the net again against the West Bay side.

The 5pm match at Ed Bush pits Cayman Athletic against Roma United. Both sides are in relegation trouble so the outcome is crucial for both. Athletic also found the net comfortably against First Division opposition last time out, beating East End 3-0.

Elite lead the table on 37 points but only on goal difference ahead of Scholars International. Breathing down both their necks are Bodden Town who are only three points behind. Fourth are George Town on 26 points, then it’s Tigers (18), Cayman Athletic (12), Roma in seventh place on 11 and Future bottom on six points.
