BAA give Colts a thrashing

Penalty strike: Coke

BAA Wanderers 4 Devonshire Colts 1

Bermuda Athletic Association remain in the thick of the First Division title race after a thumping victory over previously unbeaten leaders Devonshire Colts at Goose Gosling Field yesterday.

BAA smashed four past the visiting side to condemn Colts to their first league loss of the season and avenge defeat to the latter in the First Division Shield semi-finals last month.

Laquan Thomas led BAA’s charge with a brace while further goals from Jamin Lottimore and Morricko Iris put the game further beyond Colts’ reach.

Vernell Lambe replied for the visiting side, whose misery was compounded by having two penalties saved by Nathan Trott, the BAA goalkeeper. The defeat meant that Colts slip from first to second, five points ahead of third-placed BAA.

Boulevard 2 Paget Lions 1

Boulevard went three points clear at the top of the First Division after seeing off Paget Lions at Police Field.

Blazers went ahead around the 30th minute through a strike from Keemo Smith to take a 1-0 lead into the interval.

However, Lions refused to roll over and play dead and equalised around the hour mark through Wolde Jones, who scored with a shot from just inside the penalty area.

With very little separating the two teams, a share of the spoils seemed to be on the cards until Blazers were awarded a late penalty, which Ian Coke converted.
