Town win may cause Dudley Eve chaos

Still in it: Cougars could find themselves in a three-way tie if Dandy Town win 2-1 tomorrow (Photograph by Akil Simmons)

A 2-1 victory for Dandy Town over Robin Hood in tomorrow’s final group match in the Dudley Eve could pose a headache for the Bermuda Football Association executives.

A victory for Town, the defending champions, will leave all three teams in the group tied on three points.

However, a 2-1 result would mean that all three teams would also have the same goal difference and also goals scored and conceded — three — so there would be no way to break the deadlock.

Yesterday, the BFA confirmed that there was nothing in the rules governing the competition to deal with such a deadlock and that the executives would have to make a decision on how to break the tie.

A play-off would be the likely outcome.

The first two matches in the group ended with 2-1 victories, Robin Hood over Devonshire Cougars before Cougars beat Dandy Town by the same margin.

A victory for either team by two or more goals would eliminate the losers, with the winners advancing along with Cougars.

Group A has already been decided with Somerset, last year’s beaten finalists, and PHC going through after victories over Hamilton Parish.

Somerset will play PHC in the 3.00 match at Devonshire Rec to determine who wins the group, while Town and Hood meet at 5pm.
