Brown’s Town beat Boys’ Town in Magnum KSAFA Super League
Last season’s beaten finalists, Brown’s Town FC, condemned Boys’ Town to their first loss in the Magnum KSAFA Super League football competition, when they secured a 1-0 victory in their top-of-the-table Zone B feature at Constant Spring Complex on Friday night.
Ryan Lewis netted the all-important goal at the 28th minute, which secured all three points and moved the unbeaten Brown’s Town up to 10 points and sole leadership in the group.
Boys’ Town, who were demoted from the Premier League and are playing Confed football for the first time in years, dropped one place to third after the defeat. The Colour Reds are on six points.
Central Kingston FC took advantage of Boys’ Town’s slip by defeating Mountain View FC 1-0 in Friday night’s opening game. Chantamoi Taylor was Central Kingston’s hero, scoring at the 11th minute to ensure his team’s third straight victory.
Since losing their opening match against Brown’s Town, Central Kingston have not dropped a point and they are now second in Zone B on nine points. Mountain View, on the other hand, extended their miserable form by slumping to their third consecutive loss. The east Kingston team is bottom of the standings with one point, garnered in their opening game draw against Santos.
The latter are also struggling, having only that point from the Mountain View FC game to their tally, as they lie second from bottom after back-to-back losses.
Santos will get another opportunity to alter that trend and their lowly status on Sunday when they challenge Rockfort FC in the feature game of a double-header at Constant Spring, that is set to begin at 7:00 p.m. Sherton McPherson, Oneeko Allen and Shai Smith are the players on whom Santos will rely most for goals in this tough encounter.
Rockfort FC are seasoned campaigners, having made the semis for five years running. They are off to a somewhat slow start this season, drawing twice and losing once to make two points from three games. All their matches have been against the leading teams in Zone B and they will believe they are in with a live chance of taking their first win in Sunday’s fixture.
The players who are likely to figure in Rockfort FC’s display include veteran goalie Russell Hosang, plus offensive players Geovauni Samuda, Romarie Myers and Romario Phipps.
The opening match is a 5:00 p.m. Zone A fixture between Real Mona FC and Meadforest FC.
Both are buoyed by victory in their last game, with the unbeaten Real Mona FC moving to seven points, which had them in the joint leadership position up to Friday night ahead of the game between defending champions Barbican FC and bottom-of-the-table Constant Spring FC, which had lost all three of their previous matches.
Real Mona FC, with veteran goalie Kenrick Picknight, are quite balanced with experience and youth and will rely on Ryan Reid and Andrew Pedlar, among others.
Meadforest FC also won promotion this season, as Major League champions after beating Constant Spring. They repeated that finals win in their first Magnum KSAFA Super League clash last weekend, winning 3-1 to advance their tally to four points. Meadforest FC, with coach Karume Huie, will seek another win, hoping Jodeu Gordon, Bryan Campbell, and Deandre Walker will play the main role.
Meanwhile, three Zone B matches are scheduled in KSAFA’s Major League, also on Sunday. They are Bull Bay vs August Town at Bull Pen, Swallowfield vs New Kingston at Vauxhall High School, and Allman/Woodford vs Greenwich Town at Alpha Boys’. All games are set to kick-off at 3:00 p.m.
