Warren at the double for PHC
PHC Zebras 4 X-Roads 1
A brace from Marco Warren helped PHC Zebras to a 4-1 win over X-Roads at PHC Field yesterday.
“The three points were more important to me than scoring my third goal,” Warren said. “The win pushes us to mid-table and allows us to get some momentum going forward.”
X-Roads defender Chioke Hayward had to make a desperate clearance from a Corey Booth cross at the third minute.
Tyrell Burgess’s free kick nearly put X-Roads in front but missed the upright by inches. Paul Simons then snaked his way past two Zebras defenders before unleashing a shot which hit the post.
Booth won PHC a penalty in the 41st minute when he was fouled by Jamie Furbert. Warren wrong footed X-Roads goalkeeper Dashun Cooper to put the Zebras ahead at the break.
After the break, Na’eem Griffith ran unchallenged from the top of the penalty area to head home in the 51st minute. X-Roads went further behind from another corner when Booth headed past goalkeeper Cooper.
Furbert would make amends for conceding a first-half penalty when he scored X-Roads’ only goal after meeting Tyman Daniels’s cross with a strong header giving goalkeeper Trott no chance in the 88th minute.
PHC: Warren 42, 55, Griffith 51, Booth 58
X-Roads: Furbert 87
