Cougars extend lead at the top

Devonshire Cougars 2Devonshire Cougars scored either side of the half to stretch their lead at the top of the Digicel Premier Division to six points with a win over Robin Hood at Devonshire Rec last night.

Robin Hood 0

Goals from Domico Coddington in the 38th minute, and the all-important second by Moses Steede in the 78th made the points safe.

Robin Hood, playing a very defensive formation, weren't a genuine threat to LaVintz Tota in goal for the Big Cats in the first half, having only player-coach Kyle Lightbourne and skipper Antwan Russell as their only outlets from pressure.

For their approach, however, Cougars weren't able to capitalise on their possession, making a hash of some impressive build up play with their inability to make good the opporuntites.

After wasting good positional play for the opening 30 minutes, the hosts were rewarded for their positive play with Coddington's goal when a long ball over the top, this time by Jesse Seymour, was put home one time and leaving Hood goalkeeper Timmy Figuerido stranded on his line.

Hood did have a chance to level matters, but good link play between Lightbourne and Russell saw Lightbourne's return pass not find its target.

The second goal came when Moses Steede was on the scene to stroke home a Figuerido fumble to make the points safe.

Devonshire Cougars: L Tota, D Williams, D Cox, Z White, M Steede, K Franks, C Caisey (J Furbert-Wade, 80), D Bascome, J Seymour, D Daniels (C Brangman, 70), D Coddington (J Smith, 80)
