Connolly’s late hit thwarts Roma

The top of the Premier League table clash between Roma United and Cayman Athletic ended in an entertaining 3-3 stalemate.

Sunday’s match pitted two teams who had both won their opening matches anxious to maintain their excellent early season form.

The game at the TE McField Annex on Sunday attracted plenty of interest and the crowd was not disappointed with the cut and thrust action throughout, generally played in a good spirit.

Gavin Reynolds opened the scoring for Roma in the 14th minute before David Connolly scored for the fourth time this season 12 minutes later. Matthew Suberan put Cayman Athletic ahead with an amazing volley from a Jamaal Seymour corner two minutes before the break.

Roma regrouped during the break, started the second half much better and scored through Jamar Dickens (53rd) and Christopher Seymour (72nd). It looked like Roma had notched another win but Connolly popped up again for the equalizer in injury time for his fifth strike.

In the earlier game at the Annex, Miguel Simms (29th and 83rd) and Tex Whitelocke (43rd) got the goals for George Town in their 3-0 win over Sunset.

The biggest win of the weekend was Elite Sports Club defeating Cayman Brac 5-1 at Ed Bush on Saturday.

Elite scorers were Mark Ebanks (49th), David Dixon (51st), Jairo Sanchez (64th) and a brace for Dwayne “Gaza” Wright (87th and 90th). Ronaldo Morrison (55th) got Brac’s goal.

Scholars International hosted champions Bodden Town at Ed Bush on Sunday in another eventful match which ended 2-2. Andra Allen scored from a penalty in the first minute for Bodden Town and put them two up in the 55th minute.

Bodden Town looked set for their season’s first victory until prolific Scholars striker James “Paddy” Ebanks proved why he is so highly regarded with two goals in the last 10 minutes.

George Town must travel to Cayman Brac for their fixture on Saturday and Sunday’s games are Cayman Athletic against Sunset at the Annex, kick off 5 p.m. and Roma against Scholars in the 7 p.m. game there.

Elite play Bodden Town at Ed Bush at 7 p.m.
