BAA leave it late to reclaim second place in promotion race

Ian Coke scored a hat-trick as Boulevard thrashed Ireland Rangers 10-0 on Saturday.

Vishan Patton was the BAA hero after they left it late to help his team to a crucial victory over Young Men’s Social Club and hold on to second place with one match remaining in the First Division yesterday.

Patton scored the game’s only goal in the 90th minute to secure a vital 1-0 win at Goose Gosling Field. The goal is the difference between BAA holding on to the second promotion spot by two points with one game remaining, or trailing Boulevard on goal difference.

A draw would have left BAA facing the prospect of having to beat the Blazers next weekend when the two teams meet in their final match to decide who will be promoted with Hamilton Parish.

Boulevard thrashed Ireland Rangers 10-0 on Saturday at Malabar Field with Ian Coke, the division’s top scorer, netting a hat-trick to lead his team to their biggest win of the season. They moved into second place overnight to put pressure on BAA.

Goalkeeper Deaz Chambers opened the scoring for Boulevard in the sixth minute from the penalty spot before three more goals came in the next five minutes as Boulevard took early control.

Antoine Famous doubled the lead in the seventh minute, Tre jon Jefferis made it 3-0 in the tenth minute and Coke opened his account a minute later to make it 4-0. Sergio Woolridge scored in the 38th minute as Boulevard led 5-0 at the half.

Six minutes into the second half, Coke completed his hat-trick with two more goals in the 48th and 51st minutes before an own goal from Shaheim Wainwright in the 57th minute made it 8-0.

Boulevard had to wait a half-hour to reach double figures as Woolridge scored his second in the 82nd minute and Nico Smith made it 10 with a goal in the 84th minute.

Five goals were scored when BAA and Boulevard met in the league on November 20, BAA coming away 3-2 winners that day.
