All Saints United remained on course for promotion to the Antigua and Barbuda Football Association’s (ABFA) Premier Division on Thursday, when they comfortably dispatched the struggling Lion Hill by a 4-0 margin. Playing at home in Mack Pond, All Saints, United had goals from Junior Lee, Kenduka Challenger, Shakeem Dublin and Xavon Brown — moving to 39 points, four points clear of John Hughes with 35 points in the second position.
United have, however, played a game less than John Hughes. Lion Hill remain on 14 points and third from bottom after 15 showings. Meanwhile, in another crucial contest, Willikies handcuffed Police by a 2-0 margin to move into the number four position on the table with 29 points from their 18 showings. The victory keeps Willikies in the hunt for one of two playoff spots at the end of the competition. The loss was Police’s eighth in 17 outings as they slip into the 11th position in the standings and into one of two automatic relegation positions.
Sea View Farm racked up a massive victory as well, edging Hill Top 1-0 to move out of the automatic relegation zone and into the ninth position with 16 points. The lone goal of the contest was scored by Ikah Codrington in minute 20. Hill Top remains at the bottom of the standings with just four points. They have already been relegated to the Second Division. In the other match played on Thursday, Rangers defeated Potters Tigers 2-0. Anesto Joseph and Junior Benjamin scored in minutes 75 and 77 as Rangers move to 23 points and seventh in the standings. Potters Tigers lie sixth with 26 points.
