Social Club secure dramatic late win over Ireland Rangers

Young Men’s Social Club climbed to second place in the First Division standings after two late strikes secured all three points against Ireland Rangers, in what was a closely contested clash at Somerset Cricket Club last night.

Two goals within a minute of each other provided the difference after both teams entered the final minute of regulation time locked at 1-1.

Shaki Pearman was among the goals as Social Club defeated Ireland Rangers 3-1 in their First Division match last night at Somerset Cricket Club.

Earlier, Jahmeeko Outerbridge’s own goal gifted a fifth minute lead to Social Club before Ireland Rangers hit back through Jonathan Bean, who struck on the stroke of half time to ensure that the teams went into the break on level terms.

Things would stay that way as the game approached the end of regulation time, but with a share of the spoils seeming the likely outcome, Ryan Parris and Shaki Pearman shocked the home team with two quick goals.

The win moved Social Club to 13 points, the same as BAA and Boulevard, which have played a game less with six.

Meanwhile, I Rangers remained in seventh place on six points after suffering their fourth loss from eight games.

In yesterday’s other match, BAA slammed Paget 4-1 at Goose Gosling Field.
