The Dart Alex Alexander Memorial Trophy competition has yet to disappoint this season and after three rounds of games the tournament is still wide open.
The Fidelity Bank Cayman Storm were knocked off the top spot by a resurgent John Doak Architecture Iguanas. The Iguanas, plagued by absences earlier in the season, were in excellent form, notching up 22 unanswered points in the first half, largely through their forward pack relying on driving mauls to cross the Storm try line.
The Storm were missing key players too but never gave up and took charge in the third quarter to mount a 10 point comeback thanks to a converted interception try from Henrico DuPlessis and a Josh Brown penalty but those were to be only points for the Cayman Storm and a fourth quarter penalty kick by Doak secured the Iguanas’ first win of the season 25-10.
The day’s second game was a nail biter between the Queensgate Pigs Trotters and the Advance Fire and Plumbing Buccaneers with the Buccaneers edging the Pigs by a slim seven point margin.
Both teams were able to pull off well-rehearsed back line moves and notch up points but the Pigs suffered the early loss of fullback Dave Acutt and were on the back foot from then on.
The score was 12-12 at the interval and the Buccaneers showed what has put them top of the league at the midway point by grinding out their second win of the season for a 29-22 victory.
