Armando Lashley stamped his authority on proceedings as Direct TV Paradise defeated St. John’s Sonnets 2-0 when action continued in the Digicel-sponsored Barbados Football Association’s Premier League competition at the Wildey, St. Michael Astro-turf last night.
Lashley sparkled on the excellent playing surface and opened the scoring in the 20th minute. Paradise controlled the run of play for most of the first half but failed to add to their score-line. The second half followed the same pattern as the first-half with a few chances for both teams going a-begging.
However, as the game appeared to be ending with the one-goal differentiation, Lashley struck in the 88th minute to put the last rites on the encounter.
In the second match of the evening Gall Hill and Notre Dame waited until the second-half to really come to life with the fleet-footed Dwayne Mars’ 63rd minute goal being cancelled out at the death when Gall Hill’s Shaquille Boyce netted to get his team a share of the spoils.
Only Weymouth Wales and the Barbados Defence Force Sports Programme out of the ten-team table are left to see action. They are scheduled to play this Sunday.
