Young Men’s Social Club took over the top spot in the First Division standings after a 2-1 win over St David’s yesterday at Police Field.

The Bluebirds were able to leap over Hamilton Parish whose match yesterday with Ireland Rangers was postponed in the morning by the Bermuda Football Association.

Social Club took advantage, claiming their third win in four games when captain Ryan Parris and K’Tori Butterfield netted in the 39th and 40th minutes to give them a 2-0 lead at the half.

St David’s pulled one back through a Cody Richardson penalty in the 79th minute, which had to be retaken after goalkeeper Ryan Evans moved too early on the kick.

St David’s had two players sent off — Kurtis Minors in the first half and Shia Smith in the second, both for two yellow cards.

In the weekend’s other match, Flanagan’s Onions and Wolves played to a 4-4 draw on Saturday night to earn their first points of the season.

The match had a frantic finish with three goals coming in five stoppage-time minutes, as Akim Johnston earned Onions the draw with a penalty five minutes into time added on. It was his second goal of the night after also netting his team’s first goal in the fifteenth minute.

Kyle Brangman had given Wolves the lead in the second minute before Johnston equalised. Ed Gyde then put Onions up 2-1 in the 31st minute before Mackih McGowan made it 2-2 in the 42nd minute.

Onions went up 3-2 five minutes into the second half through a Shaki Swan goal, and it stayed that way until Tamauri Tucker’s equaliser three minutes into stoppage time.

McGowan then put Wolves up 4-3 a minute later before Johnston’s late strike with virtually the last kick made it 4-4 less than a minute later.
