Onions live to fight another day

The final round of Premier Division matches have been rescheduled to accommodate relegation-threatened Flanagan's Onions who will have several players off the Island on a pre-arranged trip on what was originally a free weekend for top-flight teams.

However, that changed when the schedule was rearranged to accommodate a home World Cup qualifier against Bahamas this weekend, with the final round of league matches put back from Sunday, April 5.

The Bermuda Football Association has confirmed that the Competition's Committee has rescheduled three of the matches for next Tuesday at three venues, with Devonshire Cougars playing North Village at Devonshire Recreation Club, Onions taking on title-chasing Dandy Town at Goose Gosling Field and Somerset at home to Southampton Rangers in a match that will decide the title race as well as Rangers' fate in the relegation fight.

Two other matches will remain on April 5, with PHC closing out their season at home to Hamilton Parish in a battle for third place, while bottom team St George's Colts take on Robin Hood, possibly with relegation for them already decided by the results from five days earlier.

Onions will also play Dandy Town in the season-ending FA Cup final after their victory over North Village booked their first spot in a major final against the defending champions on April 12.

“I'm sure everybody will be back for the FA Cup final,” said Onions coach Mick Ward after the win over Village.

“Our next focus is the league game against Dandy Town who are fighting for the league but we've had some good games against them. Jomar [Wilkinson] has done a great job, but hopefully it's not their day and it's our day and we can stay up.”

Hornets can only retain their league title on goal difference and need to beat Onions while hoping that Rangers take maximum points off Trojans.

Onions, second from bottom and a point behind Village and Rangers, need a victory while hoping either Village or Rangers drop points.
