SADCO edge Beaches in San­dals BH Football

-

ST ANN DE­VEL­OP­MENT Com­pany (SADCO) proved they will be a force to be reck­oned with in the San­dals Re­sorts In­ter­na­tional St Ann/St Mary Busi­ness House Football Com­pe­ti­tion by edg­ing highly rated Beaches Ocho Rios 1-0 in an ac­tion-packed en­counter at Drax Hall on Fri­day.

Demar Stone scored a peach of a goal in the first half to seal the is­sue. The wily striker col­lected a pass in­side the 18-yard box be­fore thun­der­ing a vi­cious shot past the hap­less Beaches goal­keeper.

The match, how­ever, was an evenly con­tested af­fair with SADCO em­ploy­ing a slick short pass­ing game to counter the speedy Beaches ag­gre­ga­tion. Both teams had a num­ber of good chances, but failed to con­vert.

In the other match played on Fri­day, Po­lice recorded their first win of the com­pe­ti­tion by de­feat­ing San­dals Ochi 3-1 in a match the ho­tel men had been ex­pected to dom­i­nate. San­dals Ochi’s midfielder Roy Rick­etts con­tin­ued his rich vein of form by scor­ing in his sec­ond con­sec­u­tive match.

Another big dou­ble-header will take place to­day at Drax Hall as C& J En­ter­prise tackle Mar­gar­i­taville MoBay at 4 p.m. C& J coach Gre­gory Brown will be hop­ing that goal­keeper Shamar Beck­ford and top play­ers Bebeto Brown and Rushane Jar­rett re­port in top form.

In the main en­counter at 6 p.m., the big guns Gran Ba­hai Principe and the North East Re­gional Health Au­thor­ity (NERHA), will meet in a clash of un­beaten teams. Gran Ba­hai will as start favourites, but word is that the NERHA team will be go­ing all out to up­set the ap­ple cart.
