FOOTBALL RETURNS WITH A BANG

 FOOTBALL RETURNS WITH A BANG

After Saturday’s Premier Division curtain-raiser for the much delayed Bermuda Football Association (BFA) season between Dandy Town and Devonshire Cougars produced just a single score over the course of 90 minutes, Sunday’s four match slate produced an avalanche of goals with a combined 18 goals tallied.

PHC 5 ROBIN HOOD 0

PHC Zebras announced their candidacy as prime challengers for the league title with a 5-0 home dismantling of Robin Hood, who looked anything but the powerhouse unit they’d shown in recent years, no doubt suffering from a talent drain that had them lose 13 players in the offseason to transfers.

The result placed the Zebras at the atop of the tables based on goal differential.

Devonshire Colts 0 Somerset 4

An away trip to Police field had Somerset Trojans place Devonshire Colts under arrest as they handcuffed the home side with four scores against no reply, as new head coach Jomar Wilkinson made his sideline debut.

Trojans positioned themselves in second place _ although level on points with PHC _ based on the sides’ goals disparity.

North Village 3 St. George’s 1

The 3-1 score-line at Bernard Park ill-reflected the contest between North Village and St. George’s Colts, with the latter fighting tooth and nail to little reward and acquitting themselves well against the reigning league champions who, in the process, were aided by a Colts’ own goal.

X-Roads 2 Southampton 0

Two teams decimated by player transfer losses X-Roads and Southampton Rangers engaged at Garrison Field, with the home team managing to come away two goals clear for an opening victory that could go a way toward enabling their survival in the Premiership.

Dandy Town 1 Devonshire Cougars 0

An early second half tally by CeCoy Robinson was enough to guide Hornets past Cougars at Goose Gosling Field and temporarily place them alone at the top of the tables, before Sunday’s match results resulted in their falling to fifth on goal difference though equal on points with PHC, Somerset, North Village and X-Roads heading into the next round of play.

Meanwhile, in First Division action 16 goals were scored in total, with Hamilton Parish leading the way with a six-pack against Vasco, whom they defeated 6-1, while Ireland Rangers pummeled Paget 5-1.

Remaining matches saw BAA edge St. David’s 1-0 and Wolves defeat Young Men Social Club 2-0.
