Rawlins tears the heart out of Wolves

First Prev 1 2 3 Next Last

Robert Rawlins scored a hat-trick as Young Men's Social Club came from behind to beat Wolves 4-3 in their First Division Shield quarter-final at Devonshire Recreation Club yesterday.

Wolves jumped out to an early 2-0 lead through goals from Stephen Bremar, and a Sergio Richardson penalty. Social Club, last year's beaten Shield finalists, eventually got a foothold in the match when Rawlins scored his first goal from the penalty spot in the seventeenth minute to draw the teams level.

Rawlins then put Social Club, who were without their top scorer Clay Darrell through suspension, in control when he scored twice inside of four minutes to complete his hat-trick, and give his team a 3-2 lead at the break.

Wolves continued to press in the second half and finally equalised in the 84th minute when Richardson scored his second goal of the match.

However, Wolves's joy was short-lived, as Raymond Burgess scored the winner in stoppage time to see Social Club safely through to the next round.

BAA also moved into the last four when their scored two late goals at Bernard Park to see off Somerset Eagles, the team that handed them their first loss of the season recently.

It was close between the teams for most of the match, with one of the best chances falling to Jonte Pearson, the Eagles's substitute, in the 74th minute when Davin Riley-Clarke laid a good ball into his path on the edge of the box. However, Pearson blasted just wide with his less-favoured right foot.

Eagles were made to pay for that miss five minutes later as BAA took the lead when Kieran Evans's deflected a Jahkari Furbert shot, sending Gladwin Lambert, the Somerset goalkeeper, the wrong way.

BAA struck again in the 81st minute when Morricko Iris and Matthew Lampit, both on as substitutes, combined to penetrate the Eagles defence. Iris slipped the ball through the defence and Lampit ran through to steer the ball past Lambert.

X-Roads caused a big upset when they beat First Division leaders Flanagan's Onions 4-1 at St John's Field, for only their second win of the season.

Meanwhile, two Jarazinho Bassett goals gave St George's a 2-0 win over Paget at Wellington Oval.
