Former Premier Division champions, SAP Football Club, bettered their chance of advancing from Group 1 of the Antigua & Barbuda Football Association’s (ABFA) Wadadli Beer Super 8 Championships on Wednesday.
SAP, who avoided demotion to the First Division by winning the FA’s playoff just one week ago, inflicted a 3-1 beating on Second Division runners-up Willikies at the Antigua Recreation Ground (ARG) to move into the second position in the standings with four points.
Contesting the opening contest of a double-header, SAP had a double strike from Danio Myers while Peter Byers struck once in the contest.
Willikies, yet to get off the mark, had their lone strike of the contest from D’Janie Shepherd.
Meanwhile in Wednesday’s feature contest, former top flight champs Old Road and newly promoted Five Islands FC played to a scoreless draw.
Old Road move to four points at the top of Group 1 owing to a superior goal difference while Five Islands, following a second straight draw, edge to two points and third in the standings.
Bullets continue to lead Group 2 and seem set to advance as best in the group with the other spot going to either Swetes or Empire.
The two top teams from each group will advance to a semi-final round on March 26 before the third place and finals slated for April 2.
