The Masters Football League is in full swing and after four rounds of games there is still plenty to play for although Scholars International are looking good as they are undefeated after three games.
Scholars beat Bodden Town 1-0 last Wednesday thanks to a late goal from Olsen Bush which he fired into an open net after a mix up between BT’s keeper and defenders. In the other game at the TE McField Annex, Boca Juniors beat George Town 2-1. GT scored a late consolation goal through Anthony Ramoon. Boca scorers were Jay Todd who scored a screamer and the other was by Ivan Ebanks.
Then Boca Juniors and Young Men played to a 1-1 draw on Sunday. Scorers were Ken Downey for Boca and Vincent Mitchell for the Young Men. In Sunday’s other game, George Town beat Bodden Town 2-1. Carlos Welcome and Wendell Scott found the net for GT and Bodden Town’s scorer was Patrick Wilson.
Scholars are top of the league with nine points, Boca, GT and Young Men all have four points and Bodden Town have yet to pick up points.
The next round of games are on Wednesday at the TE McField Annex with Young Men facing Boca in the 6pm match and Scholars versus Bodden Town in the 7.15pm game.
Ernie ‘Gillie’ Seymour is a midfield/forward for Scholars. He said: “The league is a great idea. It gives older guys an opportunity to exercise and helps relieve the stress from work, gets their hearts pumping. It is fun. On the whole it is played in good spirit.”
