City of Bridgetown were like a rash all over Christ Church West, as they dealt them a 5-1 beating when action in the David Thompson Memorial Constituency Councils Football Classic continued over the weekend.
Playing at Dover, Christ Church on Saturday, Dwayne Stanford netted twice as he led the City footballers to a convincing victory over an out-matched Christ Church side. Stanford, who has been lost to national duty for some time, scored in the 16th and 18th minutes. He was a constant threat in the fixture. Avery Chandler would add a third in the 29th minute as they totally dominated the game.
However, almost against the run of play Terrance Coppin scored in the 42nd minute to pull a goal back for Christ Church West. The score line would remain 3-1 at the half-time break.
After the resumption in the 75th minute Rohan Hewitt made it 4-1 and Christ Church West’s overly generous Chavez Lloyd gifted an own-goal in the 85th minute before the final whistle.
At Silver Sands, an efficient Christ Church East squad easily defeated St Lucy 3-0. There were goals for Derrin Gale-Forde in the 43rd minute as well as further strikes from Jamal Pinder in the 79th minute and Brad Stevenson in the 82nd.
At the same venue St Philip South’s Carlo Perry’s goal in the 65th minute cancelled out Christ Church West Central’s Mario Farrell 42nd strike in their 1-1 draw.
On Friday at Blenheim, St Joseph’s Michael Young gave his side the lead in the 28th minute but it all went downhill after that promising moment. National player Hadan Holligan equalized for St James Central in the 58th minute and then put his side 3-1 ahead by converting a 73rd minute penalty. Before that penalty Jamario Worrell had scored three minute earlier.
It was a torrid passage of play for St Joseph as their defence seemed to wilt under St James Central’s frequent forays into their area. The pressure paid off once again as in the 77th minute Brian Clarke scored to make it 4-1.
