Wil­liams’ goal seals MBU win over BT

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS - Paul Clarke Gleaner Writer

WESTERN BUREAU: STRIKER DINO Wil­liams scored his sec­ond goal of the sea­son as de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons Mon­tego Bay United (MBU) edged Boys’ Town FC 2-1 in their Red Stripe Pre­mier League foot­ball match at We­spow Park yes­ter­day.

It means that Boys’ Town are still without a vic­tory in the league, while MBU were reg­is­ter­ing their sec­ond con­sec­u­tive win. The cham­pi­ons had lost their open­ing match.

As­sis­tant coach Dil­lion Thel­well said while there were as­pects of the game that were right, he felt the team needed more de­fen­sive ur­gency.

RIGHT PATH

“It is early into the sea­son and yes, I do think we are on the right path. Three points to­day was good for us, but we needed to see more in terms of our de­fen­sive track­ing,” he told The Gleaner.

The de­ci­sion to sub­sti­tute mid­fielder Jer­maine Woozen­croft at half-time was, ac­cord­ing to Thel­well, a change to in­ject more de­fen­sive pres­ence, while tak­ing care of Boys’ Town’s at­tack­ers.

Wil­liams fired the hosts into an early lead when he con­verted a 16th-minute header. Speedy winger Al­lan Ottey was the provider.

Ottey would then score his team’s go-ahead goal in the 78th minute, fir­ing hard into the net from in­side the area.

Be­fore that, Boys’ Town had equalised through Shamar Ni­chol­son in the 73rd minute.

“This team is evolv­ing. I think we will get it right in time,” said An­drew Price, Boys’ Town’s head coach.
