Lowly teams strike big in Magnum KSAFA Super League
Constant Spring and Mountain View, who have occupied the cellar position in the Magnum KSAFA Super League, scored big last weekend to secure their first win in this season’s competition.
Battered and bruised in all four matches since promotion, Constant Spring scored a 2-0 win over Maxfield Park on Saturday night at the Constant Spring Complex.
Ryan Palmer scored at the fourth minute and Javier Wilmot made the points safe at the 84th to secure all three points for Constant Spring, to put them above Maxfield Park, who now sit bottom of Zone A with two points.
Group leaders Barbican stayed unbeaten, wrapping up their fourth victory with a Maurice Wilson 86th minute goal, that gave them a 1-0 win over Real Mona. Having lost their second match on the trot, Real Mona remained fourth on seven points, the same as Meadforest, which also lost for the second time this season.
That loss came at the hands of Molynes United, which won the feature of Sunday’s doubleheader by a 1-0 margin, the win secured by Ryan Brown’s 86th-minute goal. As a result, Molynes lie second on 10 points in Zone A.
In Zone B, Mountain View notched their first win of the season, a 1-0 margin over Rockfort in the opening game of Friday night’s opening fixture.
Prior to the game, Mountain View had lost three of their four matches. However, Antonio Russell scored at the 19th minute to hand Jahmiah Pettigrew’s team a 1-0 win that lifted them to four points, three more than bottom-place Santos.
Santos had a chance to revive their position in Sunday’s opening game but went down 2-1 against Zone B leaders, Brown’s Town, which advanced to 13 points. They got goals from Dillon McEnnis (6th) and Chawiries Calder (23rd), while Jeffrey Grant scored for the Carlton Dennis-coached Santos, in the 36th minute.
