Colts enjoy huge win
Devonshire Colts romped to the season’s biggest win yesterday when they thrashed Paget Lions 11-1 at Southampton Oval to strengthen their grip on first place.
Colts, who narrowly missed out on promotion last season, were emphatic in the victory as they led 7-1 at the half with Lozendro Symonds scoring a hat-trick and Teniko Eve netted twice.
Quinton Jones and Kyle Jones also scored in the first half as Colts substituted Symonds at the half.
The goals continued to flow in the second half as Justin Maybury, Dominique Lambe, Sean Perinchief and Carlos Trott added to the team’s biggest win of the season, which makes it 35 goals scored by Colts in the league with just six conceded in nine matches. Colts have 23 points out of a maximum 27 and remain the only unbeaten team in the league.
Boulevard remain two points behind in second place after their 3-0 win over Young Men’s Social Club at Police Field where Ian Coke, Tai-Vince Douglas and Makai Young scored for the winners.
X-Roads and BAA Wanderers also scored big wins as the five games produced 27 goals. X-Roads thumped bottom team Ireland Island Rangers 6-0 at Garrison Field where Tristan Daniels and Mikael Ming both scored twice.
BAA Warriors continued their good run of late with a 5-0 thrashing of St David’s at Lord’s where Morriko Iris, Troy Tucker and Jair Minors were among the scorers.
Wolves suffered a setback in their promotion push when Somerset Eagles beat them 1-0 at Devonshire Recreation Club. Wolves dropped from third to fourth in the standings, replaced by X-Roads. Both teams have a game in hand on the top two.
