Parish down Wolves to cement place at First Division summit
Hamilton Parish made it three league wins on the trot after overcoming fellow Wellington Oval tenants, Wolves, 3-0 in a hard-fought battle between two of the sides expected to be pushing for promotion.
Parish continued their unbeaten start to the season with Jordan Outerbridge and Shakeem Albouy giving them a 2-0 lead at the interval, before MacQuille Walker put the game out of Wolves’ reach with a third in the second half.
Jordan Outerbridge broke the deadlock in the eleventh minute before Albouy doubled the lead in the 31st minute. Wolves battled hard to stay in contention in the second half but it was Parish who scored again in the 64th minute to seal the points. Walker beat goalkeeper Reid Trott to a ball into the box by Jordan Outerbridge, to score with a simple tap-in inside the six-yard box.
Parish lead the division with nine points, three ahead of BAA who have maximum points from their two matches following a 3-2 win over Boulevard on Saturday at Goose Gosling Field.
Ian Coke scored twice for Boulevard while Patrick Quinn netted two for BAA before Stanley McDowall scored the winner in the second half to lift them into second place.
In the other match Vasco and Ireland Rangers played to a 1-1 draw at Southampton Oval yesterday. Zico Lambert opened the scoring for Rangers in the 13th minute before Shaun Brown equalised in the 68th minute.
