Devonshire Cougars 6 (2) Somerset Trojans 0 (0)
Devonshire Cougars claimed early possession of the top spot in football’s Premier Division, their 6-0 pasting of a woeful Somerset Trojans at The Den allowing them the position based on superior goal differential.
Chief among the many thorns that afflicted the visitors was Elisha Darrell, who was unstoppable early and often, the lanky striker scoring a hat-trick that was made up of Cougars’ first three goals, with strikes in the 24th, 44th and 59th minutes.
Others joining Darrell in the scoring column were Demetre Daniels (74), Jesse James Seymour (82) and Zari Simmons (88).
For Trojans it was the second time this season that they had conceded six goals at the venue, having lost by the same scoreline to PHC in the Dudley Eve Trophy.
HOT PEPPERS RUN RIOT AT LORDS
HAMILTON PARISH 4 (2) X-ROADS WARRIORS 1 (1)
Freshly promoted Hamilton Parish served notice to the league’s incumbent clubs that they will be a force to be reckoned with, on the evidence shown in a 4-1 demolition of X-Roads at St David’s on Sunday.
Two goals in each half were more than enough to earn Hot Peppers victory, while giving X-Roads coach Ralph (Gumbo) Bean Jr and his players cause for concern as to the sieve they have masquerading as a defence and how such might bode for retaining a future among the top flight.
Zuhri Burgess opened the scoring for Parish in the 23rd minuted, before Donavan Thompson equalised nine minutes later.
There would be no further answers to strikes from Shayne Hollis (34), Mcquille Walker (53) and Aaron Nelson (84), which assured Parish of a place among the early Premier Division leaders, standing level with Devonshire Cougars on points, but second on goal differential.
ROBIN HOOD BETTER … STILL NOT ENOUGH AGAINST HORNETS
Robin Hood 1 (0) Dandy Town 2 (0)
It took an injury time goal from Chemari Henry for defending champions Dandy Town to secure the full points quota from their match against a patched together Robin Hood outfit at Goose Gosling Field on Saturday night.
The teams were deadlocked at 1-1 on second half goals from Hornets’ Cecoy Robinson and an Ereico Outerbridge penalty conversion for Hood, setting the stage for Henry’ last gasp winner.
HIGH FLYING BLUEBIRDS CLIP EAGLES’ WINGS
Somerset Eagles 0 (0) Young Men’s Social Club 5 (4)
Young Men’s Social Club produced a stunningly debilitating four-goal outburst in the first half of their encounter with Somerset Eagles at White Hill, on the way to shocking the hosts 5-0 and completing a miserable day for the two major Sandys Parish clubs, which conceded a combined 11 goals.
David Jones (12 and 43) and Nigel Williams (45 and 48) each scored a brace, while Ryan Parris (23) added a single tally for the winners.
IRELAND RANGERS THE LONE STAR IN THE WEST
Devonshire Colts 0 (0) Ireland Rangers 3 (2)
Ireland Rangers saved the west end from a weekend whitewash, easily dispatching of once mighty Devonshire Colts 3-0 in a game that evaporated as a contest early.
Rangers seized the advantage after only five minutes via a Sekai Proctor score, with the advantage doubled when Leo Burgess scored in the 23rd.
Good measure was added by Jahnai Rattery when he finished up the scoring with Rangers’ third ten minutes after half-time.
