Empire Drops 3 Valuable Points, While Parham Earn A Much Needed 3

As the race to get to the Premier Division intensifies, one of the front runners in the ABFA First Division, LIME Empire dropped 3 valuable points after they were beaten by a goal to nil, while Asot’s Arcade Parham earned a much needed three points as they lifted their hopes of beating relegation with a 3-2 victory.

Playing at the Antigua Recreation Ground on Saturday in the first game of a double header, Empire, on 30 points, went into the game in third position against Freemansville (23 points).

Full points for Empire would have put them level with Bullets at the top, but that was not to be as Freemansville won by a goal to nil as a result of an own goal by Anderson James in the 59th minute.

The win lifted Freemansville to 26 points, while Empire remain on 30 points.

In the feature match on Saturday, a Premier Division encounter, Parham, one of the teams still fighting to stave off relegation, got a much needed 3 points with a 3-2 victory over Villa Lions.

Rowan Reid’s 7th minute goal, Ricky Charles’ 49th minute contribution and Mitchley Wall’s 56th minute strike did it for Parham, while an own goal and Garry Gonsalves’ 90th minute goal benefitted Villa.

Parham advance to 16 points alongside Sap, while Villa lie one point ahead in the standings.
