The race for the Premier League title is revving up and has now become a two-horse race between Elite Sporting Club and Scholars International.
Both were on 37 points after 17 games going into Sunday’s games but Elite had a marginally better goal difference. Well they both won only Scholars closed the gap by one goal, hitting five past lowly Roma United who only have 11 points and are second from bottom in the table.
Elite’s top marksman Dwayne ‘Gaza’ Wright was on target again, hitting a hat-trick in their 5-1 victory over Bodden Town at BT’s home ground. Jose Luis Bush in the fifth minute opened for Elite. Gaza got his goals in the 20th, 63rd and 69th minute and Demarr Walker wrapped up Elite’s total in the 83rd. Charlo McLean got BT’s goal in the 36th minute. Gaza has now scored 19 in all competitions, including 18 in the Premier League.
Played at the TE McField Annex, Scholars were always in control and the biggest surprise was that they did not make their domination pay until a minute before the break when captain Oneil Taylor struck. Damalay Howelle got Scholars’ second in the 55th minute before Carson Fagan (60th), Erick Brown (86th) and Taylor again (90th) completed Roma’s misery.
In the earlier game George Town drew with Tigers 1-1, with Miguel Simms getting the Tigers score in the 21st minute and Tex Whitelocke for GT 18 minutes later.
At the Bodden Town field, Paul Brown scored in the first minute for Future Sporting Club and a Future own goal gave Cayman Athletic their score in the 1-1 draw.
