Just a few weeks ago Weymouth Wales looked like the team to beat for the Digicel Premier league title.
Now it doesn't seem so certain.
Their first defeat dished out by Notre Dame damaged their aura of invincibility. Dames ran them ragged by attacking from the flanks and suddenly they looked very ordinary.
That 3-2 defeat was followed by a 1-1 draw against Ellerton who have been inconsistent. So,questions have been asked about Wale's ability to stave off pressure.
Resurgent Britton's Hill might just be able to examine their true character as well in tonight's first game.
This wouldn't have been a thought in the first round comparing the teams respective records.Wales were high flyers in the top two and Britton's Hill among the low lites second from bottom of the table.
Wales are currently second with 30 points from 13 matches.Should they get a win tonight they will return to the top of the charts on goal difference from leaders Barbados Defence Force Sports Programme, who have 33 points from 14 matches and an identical goal difference of 25 with Wales.
Britton's Hill have shown improved commitment and form in the second round,moving to 8th position on 10 points,claiming two wins as they climbed from the bottom. They are not out of the relegation zone as yet ,so they will be highly motivated to get the three points which will make them feel more comfortable. Wales will start as favourites but could be in for a major test.
The night's final game is the bottom of the table clash between Belfield and Compton.
It's obvious that both teams need points badly and this one could be fuelled by passion and hunger with technique and game plan running a close second.
Belfield have 8 points and Compton 5.In reality, any number can play between these two and this is what makes this duel so intriguing and fascinating. A high scoring draw is a distinct possibility.
