“I thought that we played well for most of the game” commented Nelson “the first half was a little frantic, but we improved in the second half, and it felt like we had more control across the pitch which was the pleasing. We were incredibly happy to get the three points, especially against a formidable team and one that will be close to us in the league.”
Meanwhile VG Utd demolished the short handed One Caribbean 5-0 with goals coming from top scorer Levon Williams in the 11th and 60th minutes, Devonte Samuel in the 18th, Sheldon Harry, with his first goal since his transfer, in the 81st and Thomas Albert in the 84th.
“the players really worked hard in training this week and were motivated” noted Coach Jermain Abrams “They were a player short, but it was a good game and we could have capitalised on a lot more situations to score. It was a good game overall though and good to see things we had put into place working and most of the youngsters getting on the score sheet!”
