Three points each went to the Barbados Defence Force SportsProgramme and Weymouth Wales as they continued their winning ways during the out-of-zone fixtures of the Barbados Football Association Premier League. With both teams already sporting sizeableleads on the rest of their respective groups, the soldiers and Wales racked up decent wins at the Wildey Turf yesterday as neither of their opponents had any replies for the five goals scored.
The Sports Programme got the evening started with a 3-0 win over Abrahams United Silver Sands that sees the latter stuck at the bottom of Zone 2. Although Silver Sands put up a good fight for most of the first half, Rasheed Williams broke the deadlock in the 45thminute to put the soldiers up just before the break.
In the second half, Silver Sands would have a few chances they would fail to capitaliseon. However, their greatest tragedy came in the 77thminute when they were gifted a penalty after Rashad Smith gave an unnecessaryfoul in the box. With Troy Johnson stepping up to the spot, he sent the kick into the crossbar after having Kishmar Primus beat.
Damion Thorington made it 2-0 for the Sports Programme in the 82ndwhen the ball found his head after a cross came in from the right from Williams. Thorington went home with a brace after he was fed a through-ball from the left by national captain Rashad Jules int eh 89thwhich he pushed deftly to the left of an advancing Gabriel Layne to seal the deal at 3-0.
The nightcap game saw Romario Harewood having a solid two-goal performance to lead his team to the win over Crane and Equipment Ellerton. It was simple stuff for the former national player with his first coming from a free kick just to the left of the box in the 54thminute. The resulting right-foot shot went over the wall and curled into the nets and Ellerton keeper Jamar Brewster was left rooted.
It was late in the exchange when Arantees Lawrence made a pass to Harewood from the middle and the fleet-footed youngster did the rest on his own as he made a run in from the left flank and fired the ball to the left of an advancing Brewster from inside the 18. With a second goal coming in the 93rd, things were done and dusted as Wales walked off with the win.
