Coach Derren Huggins of Mantab said he was expecting the win, but not the goal tally. “I didn’t
expect (that many) goals and the guys had more and more chances. I wish the scoreline could
have been way bigger, to outscore everybody in the league,” he said. The Mantab coach

unavailability of some of their players. “We still haven’t found a proper 11 to start with. Today

 Coach of Dieppe Bay Kalia Huggins said she expected her team to score more goals. “Today’s
game went pretty well. I expected more goals but the sun was a bit hot. We just have to go back
to the drawing board, more training, work on our weak areas and for next game, we will be
good,” Huggins said.  Captain of Hardtimes Kyron Liburd said despite the loss, his team is
gradually finding its way. “We had a few clear-cut chances; keeper did well but with a little more
work I think we will do well,” he said.
