Young Men’s Social Club widen gap at top of First Division
Leaders Young Men’s Social Club handed Wolves their first defeat of the season in a cagey First Division affair at Wellington Oval on Sunday.
Unbeaten Social Club came away with a 2-1 win to avenge defeat to their rivals in an emotional Shield final last season and the result enabled Social Club to open up a five-point advantage over Paget at the summit.
Despite being five points behind, Paget have yet to taste defeat this season after they thumped Ireland Rangers 4-2 at Somerset Cricket Club last Saturday.
Dion Stovell led the away side’s charge with a brace while player-coach Antwan Russell and Rakeem DeShields chipped in with one apiece. Ireland Rangers replied through tallies from the in-form Leo Burgess and Jahnai Ratteray.
Ten-man Southampton Rangers suffered their first league defeat of the season after being soundly beaten 5-2 by Devonshire Colts at Police Field on Sunday.
Keino Burch was the Colts’ hero netting a hat-trick while Keston Lewis also got in on the scoring act with two goals. Sijay Samuels and Jahni Bean replied for the visitors who were reduced to ten men after the latter received a straight red card in the 81st minute.
The match between Somerset Eagles and fellow cellar dwellers St David’s at White Hill Field on Sunday was postponed and the match will now be played on December 4.
