Bodden Town are stealthily closing the gap on Elite Sports Club as they seek to keep the Premier League in their trophy cabinet for a third consecutive season.
A 3-1 beating of early season leaders Cayman Athletic on Sunday took BT into third place, on 23 points, seven behind Elite but the reigning champs do have a game in hand.
Kareem James (27th and 32nd minutes) gave BT the perfect start before former BT midfielder Jorronie McLean (62nd) pulled one back for Athletic. Jamie Johnson (78th) secured the win for BT who play Sunset in this Sunday’s early game at the TE McField Annex.
The late Annex game sees Athletic against George Town. At the Ed Bush field the West Bay titans Elite and Scholars International clash at 5 p.m.
Cayman Brac face Roma United on Saturday at the Annex, kick off 8 p.m.
Scholars are second, four points behind Elite, having beaten GT 3-1 on Sunday thanks to a hat-trick by Rolly Rodden. A Kevin Moore penalty was GT’s only joy from this match.
Roma and Elite drew 1-1 on Sunday. Gavin Reynolds (54th) opened for Roma and six minutes later Dwayne “Gaza” Wright hit Elite’s equalizer.
Athletic are fourth in the league now, with 22 points, Sunset (19) fifth, GT (18) sixth, Roma (16) seventh and Brac are bottom with only 10 points.
Athletic’s David Connolly is the league’s top scorer with 14, Gaza has 13 and there are three on seven goals – Tex Whitelocke (GT), Theron Wood (BT) and Mark Ebanks (Elite).
