BAA’s winning streak to no avail

BAA 5

Social Club 1

In a must win game at Goose Gosling Field, BAA Wanderers went about their task in systematic fashion by destroying Young Men's Social Club yesterday.

The score was not indicative of the true mastery and domination enjoyed by BAA.

Unfortunately for Kenny Thompson's side, who finished the season winning 13 successive games, it was a case of too little too late as the two top teams, Boulevard and Devonshire Colts both won, thereby securing promotion.

Social Club started off their day in serious doubt of fielding a team as many of their players attended the funeral of Cal Rayner, a former St Georges Colts and Social Club player.

BAA set upon their opponents in a ruthless fashion, by depositing three of their several shots in the back of the net in the span of 25 minutes.

Troy Tucker opened BAA's account with a third-minute strike when Morricko Iris worked his way into the box and squared a beautiful pass across goal.

Three minutes later, BAA were at it again when Iris was sent through on a long ball. Iris outpaced his marker, raced into the penalty and squeezed off a shot that found its way past the advancing goalkeeper.

BAA were gifted their third goal in the 26th minute with Laquan Thomas's strike.

At the interval, BAA became aware of the Devonshire Colts-St David's tied score. So like a team possessed, clinging to a lifeline and intent on accomplishing its promotion mission, BAA notched their fourth strike in the 50th minute after Iris fed a pass to Jibri Lawrence-Salaam.

Troy Tucker, who had been controlling the middle of the pitch, provided the goods for BAA's fifth goal in the 64th minute when he initiated another raid with Lottimore on the Social Club goal. Lottimore provided the final touch when he passed to an unmarked Laquan Thomas.

Social Club were rewarded with a consolation goal in the 74th minute when winger Saki Tuzo latched onto a clearance down the left flank. He beat his man and rounded the rapidly advancing goalkeeper, Nathan Trott, to finish into an open net.

n Tristan Daniels scored four as X-Roads thrashed Wolves 10-0 at Garrison Field. Machi McGowan scored two goals while Rico Beek, Dennis Musson, Kyhon Smith and Jamin Furbert also scored.

Paget Lions ended their season with a 5-0 victory over Ireland Rangers at Malabar. Jahnya Richardson scored a hat-trick while Y-Ron Astwood netted twice as the home team had a player sent off in each half.

BAA winger Lottimore caused problems all afternoon.
