Social Club just hold on to unbeaten record

Young Men's Social Club preserved their unbeaten record in the First Division, but only after an injury-time equaliser by Clay Darrell denied BAA victory at Goose Gosling Field on Saturday.

Social Club, leading on Tyrell Burgess's second-half goal, were about to become the first team to beat Social Club in the league this season when striker Clay Darrell popped up with a late goal to earn Social club a 1-1 draw.

The result enabled X-Roads to cut Social Club's lead back to two points after they beat St George's 2-1 in their derby match at Wellington Oval yesterday to eliminate Colts from the promotion race.

Paul Simons gave X-Roads the lead in the 36th minute before teenager Aaron Spencer Jr doubled the lead in the 54th minute.

Jarazinho Bassell pulled one back for St George's in the 90th minute, just before the final whistle confirmed their elimination from the promotion race after picking up just one point in their last three games.

The loss leaves St George's 13 points behind second-place X-Roads and with only five games remaining.

St David's kept in the hunt after coming from behind to beat Hamilton Parish 7-1, Dunte Albouy leading the way with a hat-trick as St David's led 2-1 at the half. Further tallies came from Kontaicf Burton, Mikkail Crockwell, Delun Fishenden and Zachary Morris.

Both third place St David's and BAA have a game in hand on the top two, a match of great importance as one of them will be eliminated from the race to get promoted.

St David's are presently eight points behind X-Roads and with that game in hand while BAA are 13 points behind second place.

Ireland Rangers' thirteenth match of the season brought them good luck when they ended 12 straight losses in the league with their first point of the campaign from a 3-3 draw with Southampton Rangers.

Keedai Astwood gave Southampton Rangers a 2-0 lead after scoring in the sixteenth and 34th minutes. However, Rangers were pegged back after a double from Jireko Powell in the 36th and 44th minutes levelled the scoring. Powell then completed his hat-trick in the 68th minute to give the visiting side the lead, but Andrew Raynor earned Southampton a point when he netted in the 80th minute to tie it up at 3-3.

Wolves and Paget Lions drew 1-1 in the other match at Devonshire Recreation Club where Dion Stovell gave Paget the lead in the 46th minute.

Ray Butterfield earned Wolves a share of the points with his equaliser three minutes into stoppage time.
