Corday hits hat-trick against hapless Colts

Devonshire Colts 0 Somerset Trojans 5

Justin Corday struck a hat-trick as Somerset Trojans heaped more misery on relegated Devonshire Colts in the Premier Division at Goose Gosling Field last night.

Corday, who played for Bermuda Select against New York Cosmos last weekend, was in superb form in front of goal as Trojans moved closer to qualifying for the Dudley Eve Trophy with a top-six finish.

Trojans are one point behind Devonshire Cougars in fifth place. Trevin Ming, the Trojans captain, said his side were determined to finish the season strongly and finish in the top four.

“Getting a Dudley Eve spot for next season is the aim,” Ming said. “This was the highest-scoring game we've had for a while and we wanted to play well and have fun tonight.”

Ming praised the performance of Corday and said the attacking midfielder was brimming with confidence after facing the Cosmos.

“He stepped up for Bermuda at the weekend and you can see he wants to bring a higher quality,” Ming added. “He has a great shot on him.”

Corday struck the opener with a first-time strike after good work from Tahj Wade to give Trojans the lead at the interval.

Corday doubled his team's lead just at the start of the second half with strike from outside the box. Winger Leo Burgess added a third with a lovely left-footed effort before Corday completed his hat-trick with a solo effort midway through the half. Romar Simmons struck the fifth from close range.
