Coach Anthony “Nets” Isaac of Newtown, was pleased with outcome of the match. “We see the
stuff (we practice) coming out in the game. It’s not a hundred percent, but we are getting there,”
Isaac said.

Assistant Manager of the Sandy Point FC, Shane Jeffers, said his team competed well, but were
just unable to get the equalizing goal. “We basically gave ourselves a chance in the second half.
We had to make some changes—two red cards in the first half on either team. A few adjustments
from the coach in the second half and we bore fruit to that,” Jeffers said.
In the second match of the Saturday’s double header, defending champions S. L. Horfords St.
Paul’s United finally got a win, after drawing 0-0 last week with Old Road. They brushed aside
Hobson Enterprises Garden Hotspurs 3-1.

Manager of St. Paul’s Austin Lewis said the team needed to make some adjustments after last
week’s draw and was pleased with the performance Saturday night. Spurs Assistant Coach
Rohan Browne, said preparation for the match was affected, especially with an unfortunate
incident in their community this past week. The SKNFA Premier League continues this Friday
with matches at the Newtown Playing field.
