Opportunity missed by title hopefuls Colts

Leaders Devonshire Colts squandered an opportunity to clinch the First Division title in their final outing of the season against St David's at the weekend.

The two sides battled to a 1-1 draw at Lord's where Chemarl Henry and Kontai Burton traded goals. Henry put Colts out front from the penalty spot after being brought down in the area before Burton equalised from Christen Lugo-Elibox's free kick to earn the home side share of the spoils.It is the second time this season that the two teams have battled to a 1-1 stalemate in the league.

Colts, who have a bye in the final round of league matches this weekend, are also bidding for the First Division “double, having won the Shield via a emphatic 4-1 win over Flanagan's Onions at Somerset Cricket Club on New Year's Day.

Meanwhile, St George's kept their title hopes on track after cruising to a comfortable 3-0 win over Flanagan's Onions at Goose Gosling Field via goals from Samori Greenidge Saltus, Jahkai Brangman and Damon Darrell.

St George's, who trail Colts by a point, can clinch the title on their home turf with victory in their final match of the season against Vasco at Wellington Oval on Sunday.

The East Enders romped to an emphatic 5-0 win over Vasco in the first league meeting between the two sides at Bernard Park last December.

Elsewhere at the weekend, Ireland Rangers achieved their first league win of the season after edging Hamilton Parish 4-3 at Wellington Oval while Wolves beat Young Men's Social Club 2-1 at St John's Field.
