George Town keep Bodden Town waiting

Bodden Town must keep their celebrations on hold for the time being after drawing 2-2 with nearest league rivals George Town on Sunday. 

The 2-2 draw meant Bodden Town have 43 Premier League points from 19 games with two to play. They are five points ahead of GT who must win both their remaining games and hope the reigning league champions lose their fixtures. That is unlikely, considering Bodden Town are undefeated in all domestic matches this season. 

The league’s top scorer is BT’s Theron Wood who has hit 26. But it was his teammate Ricoh Brown who bagged a brace against George Town at the Haig Field in Bodden Town. Tex Whitelocke and Miguel Simms got GT’s strikes.  

Sunset won 4-1 against North Side thanks to a Justin Pierre hat-trick and a Rob Crockett strike. Floyd “Irons” McKenzie replied for North Side.  

Academy beat Elite 3-1 at the TE McField Annex. Jamiel White (2) and Joshua Tugman scored Academy’s and Jedd Ebanks got Elite’s goal.  

Third placed Scholars International still have a mathematical chance but they made a difficult task almost impossible by only drawing 1-1 with Cayman Athletic at the Annex. David Connolly opened the scoring for Athletic and Carson Fagan grabbed the equalizer near the end. 

It’s the FA Cup quarter-finals on Sunday. At the Ed Bush field in West Bay, Future play Latinos in the 5 p.m. kick off before Sunset face reigning FA Cup champs Bodden Town at 7 p.m.  

At the Annex, Elite play Scholars in the early match before George Town take on Roma.
