Dwayne “Gaza” Wright has been top scorer in the Premier League for the past three seasons, and he is determined to hang onto his Golden Boot award again judging by the way he has started.
Wright got the second of the four goals Elite put past Academy on Sunday to take his tally to six so far this season.
Hot shot teammate Mark Ebanks got two and Jessus Ebanks hit the other two in the 4-0 win as Elite added more misery to Academy’s start of the season. Academy have only picked up one point in their five matches.
Wright hit 22 goals last season for Bodden Town before returning to Elite, the team he played for in the previous two campaigns. Bodden Town coasted to the league title last season thanks to Wright’s gems but they are struggling to find the mark so far without him.
Mark Ebanks was second most prolific scorer last term with 17.
George Town remain top of the Premier League after a goalless draw away to double champs Bodden Town. Scholars International are in second place with 13 points, same as George Town who head the table on goal difference.
Scholars beat Cayman Athletic 2-1 thanks to goals by Odain Plinton and Aldene Forbes. Christopher Ebanks scored for Athletic.
Sunset and North Side drew 1-1.
Elite is third in the table with 10 points and Bodden Town surprisingly fourth with nine.
Sunset are fifth on five points, then North Side on two and Cayman Athletic seventh with a single point, only ahead of Academy on goal difference.
Elite plays Bodden Town on Sunday at the TE McField Annex, kickoff 5 p.m. before George Town takes on Scholars at 7 p.m.
At the North Side field, Academy faces Sunset in the early game and then North Side plays Cayman Athletic.
