Young Lions roar in Second Division opener

Source :

The Young Lions FC are off to an intimidating start in the Antigua and Barbuda Football Association (ABFA) Second Division on Tuesday, crushing Mahico 7-1 when they clashed in Old Road. 

The round south team totally dominated the contest and had a hattrick from Damond Brown who netted in minutes 39, 54 and 62 to lead his team’s attack. Brown was assisted by Zavier Joseph who scored twice, celebrating on either sides of the half after scoring in the third minute and then again, in the 47th minute. 

Conrod Willock who scored in minute 26 and Blavon James who netted in minute 68, were also on the scorers’ sheet for Young Lions. Nahiem Este scored in minute 20 as he had Mahico’s only goal. 

The huge victory puts Young Lions at the top of the standings after just one showing while it had the opposite effect on Mahico, relegating them to the bottom of the table. 

There was victory as well for Westham FC as they beat Herberts 1-0 at the newly upgraded Villa Park. The lone goal of the contest came from Shane Buckley in minute 77. 

In the other match played that day, CPTSA Wings defeated Glanvilles 2-1 when they met at the Johnson’s playing field. 

Jalany Lloyd and Jaconie Nathaniel were both on the scorecard for Wings while Alexander Moody-Stuart pulled a goal back for Glanvilles. 

Meanwhile, an unprepared field at Freeman’s Village forced the postponement of the scheduled encounter between Master Ballers and the home team.
