Bodden Town finally secured their first win of the season – at the fifth attempt – with a 1-0 victory over Roma United.
BT drew their first three games and lost to Elite last week but, thanks to Charlo McLean, the reigning league champions were victorious. He scored 12 minutes from the end at the TE McField Annex on Sunday.
McLean’s father is Elbert, the team’s technical director, so there must have been a huge sigh of relief in that household on Sunday night.
Cayman Athletic’s youngsters continued their impressive start to the season under coach Ernie “Gillie” Seymour, going to Cayman Brac and thrashing them 7-2 on Saturday.
David Connolly hit a hat-trick to take his season’s tally to eight and the other Athletic scorers were Jamaal Seymour (Gillie’s son), Christopher Ebanks, Matthew Suberan and Martin Webb.
Marc Brown scored the game’s only goal for George Town in their victory over Elite in the early game at Annex.
James “Paddy” Ebanks has been a revelation for Scholars International so far this term and he did it again in their 1-0 win over Sunset at Ed Bush, his fourth of the season, making him the league’s second-highest scorer after Connolly.
Cayman Athletic top the table with 10 points having scored 15 times in their five games. But they have also leaked nine goals so a high scoring, entertaining game always looks likely whenever they play.
Elite are joint second with George Town on nine points and then it’s Roma and Scholars on eight.
BT are in sixth place with six points, then it’s Sunset on four and Brac with a solitary point at the bottom.
Cayman Brac host Sunset this Saturday and the Sunday games are Roma against Elite at the TE McField Annex before George Town take on Scholars there. Bodden Town are home to Cayman Athletic, kick off 5 p.m.
