Scotty’s Car Rentals St Andrew Lions roared to life last night, winning over Weymouth Wales with an impressive 3-2 victory.
The nightcap game of the Coca Cola Premier League, at the Wildey Turf saw the upset which left quite a few people speechless at the outcome.
Veteran Ray Snaggs opened for Wales three minutes in, before teammate Romario Harewood doubled the Carrington Village side’s lead in the tenth minute.
But while Ramar Millar was sidelined due to injury, reducing his side to ten-men momentarily, Shamar “Buju” Edwards took full advantage and registered his first goal of the night off a glancing header.
Another injury – Kemar Bartlett – seemed to throw the Green Machine off their game and Edwards equalized from close range in the 49th minute, seconds ahead of Mario “Bagga” Williams being ejected from the game, reducing Wales to ten men.
Vincentian Emerald George secured the winning goal in the 87th minute with a cross from Edwards, moments before Wales’ custodian Liam Brathwaite took down the latter and was red-carded on the 91st minute.
University of the West Indies Blackbirds and Clayton’s Kola Tonic Notre Dame played to a 2-2 draw. Zeco Edmee took the lead for the Dames in the 18th minute with a header off a corner kick, before Kobe Mayers levelled the playing field eight minutes later.
Tremaine Cobham brought up the Dames’ lead on the half-hour mark, to give the St Michael side the lead before teammate Winston Maynard was sent packing heading into half time.
While Wales held things down in spite of their reduction, the teams became level in the 54th minute when UWI’s goalie Nashton Browne was sent off. However, that did not stop the Blackbirds from soaring to new levels, and Natari Worrell pocketed for his side in the 80th minute.
Meanwhile, in the Brittons Hill and Abrahams United Silver Sands clash, Silver Sands’ Kadeem Brewster secured the only goal of that game in the 15th minute, contributing to an otherwise frustrating night for Brittons Hill.
Brittons Hill keeper Romaine Primus was also dismissed five minutes before the final whistle after making a wild challenge outside the box.
