Goals tally hits high note in top flight
The 29 goals scored in the Premier Division last weekend was the highest goals tally for the top-flight this year, beating the 27 goals netted on March 16 and 17.
That day Robin Hoodís match against BAA produced 12 goals as Hood romped to a 10-2 win, while X-Roads defeated Paget 6-1.
Another 20 goals came from the five First Division matches, where Southampton Rangers hammered Young Menís Social Club 6-1.
Last weekend, X-Roads and Dandy Town were involved in a 12-goal thriller at Garrison Field, with the visiting side winning 7-5 as Angelo Simmons, last seasonís top scorer in the top flight, netted four times while Donavan Thompson, of X-Roads, scored a hat-trick.
PHC Zebras, the league champions, also netted seven times, handing promoted side Somerset Eagles their second loss of the season with a 7-1 result as Marco Warren scored a hat-trick.
Robin Hood, the joint league leaders, and PHC have both netted 17 goals this season and X-Roads and Dandy Town 16 and 15, respectively, while bottom team Boulevard are still looking for their first goal after eight league and cup matches this term.
Boulevard have lost all six of their league matches, although their defensive record is not the worst in the division, with Town conceding 13, X-Roads 15 and Somerset Trojans 18.
The Trojans, second from bottom, are already seven points adrift of neighbours Somerset Eagles as they look set to face another relegation battle. The promotion race is shaping up to be a three or four-team affair with Devonshire Colts and Vasco tied on 15 points, St Georgeís in third place on 12 points and with two games in hand on third place Colts and Wolves in fourth. Colts and Wolves are tied on points.
Vasco have a game in hand on Colts, who beat Ireland Rangers 4-0 on Saturday, while Vasco edged St Davidís 3-2 to maintain their perfect record.
St Davidís took the lead in the third minute through Dmitri Butterfield before Vasco equalised through Ryan Lopes in the 52nd minute.
Ricardo Ponte put Vasco ahead 2-1 in the 69th minute before Jamal Woodley levelled in the 75th minute. Ricardo Medeiros netted the winner from the penalty spot in the 84th minute.
St Georgeís are yet to concede a goal this season, keeping their fourth clean sheet with their 2-0 win over Wolves, who lost ground on the leaders with their second loss.
Young Menís Social Club beat Hamilton Parish 1-0 in the other match. St Georgeís play Hamilton Parish in a make-up game next Monday at Wellington Oval. Ireland Rangers meet Flanaganís Onions at Malabar Field in the other match, which also starts at 3pm.
Hoodís make-up match with North Village, which was tentatively scheduled for Monday, will have to be rescheduled as Hood play Dandy Town in the Dudley Eve final on Sunday.
The Bermuda Football Association confirmed yesterday that Devonshire Recreation Club will host the final.
