Vasco clinch first win of the season

Vasco picked up their first win of the season with a 2-1 success over Devonshire Colts at Bernard Park in First Division action, yesterday.

Colts, who thrashed Wolves 6-2 last weekend, went behind in the 21st minute to a goal from Eduardo Correira before Bryan Rose levelled things up in the 37th minute.

Vasco settled the points right on half time through Kyle Godfrey with what turned out to be the winning goal.

Elsewhere, ten-man St George's made a winning start to their league campaign after edging St David's 1-0 in an East End derby switched from Lord's to Wellington Oval.

David Signor converted the winner from the penalty spot in the 75th minute after the visitors handled in the area.

The home side found themselves at a numerical disadvantage when Wayne Broadley was sent off in the 86th minute after receiving a second yellow card.

However, despite the setback, they managed to hold onto their narrow lead.

In the two matches scheduled on Saturday, Hamilton Parish edged Flanagan's Onions 2-1 at Wellington Oval while the contest between Ireland Rangers and Wolves at Malabar Field was not played because the pitch was not ready.
