Football: Robin Hood And YMSC Earn Victories

January 13, 2019

Robin Hood and Young Men’s Social Club [YMSC] each appeared at their scoring best on Saturday, combining for 11 goals scored.

Hood moved three points clear at the top of the Premier Division standings as a result, while the Bluebirds further secured their spot at mid-table of the First Division.

Premier Division: Somerset Trojans 3 Robin Hood 5

Robin Hood erupted early and often at Somerset Cricket Club field, tallying five first half goals before taking their foot off the accelerator and having Somerset respond with three credited goals, although two of those score were own goals, a rarity in association football.

Before the home side could blink, let alone settle, they found themselves down two goals as Tomiko Goater and Antwan Russell both powered in headers in the seventh and 11th minutes.

Daniel Andrade took a turn at scoring in the 25th minute before Russell and Goater returned to the fore, scoring a goal apiece to close the half at 5-0 up.

Somerset, to their credit, refused to give up in a ‘hard-luck’ situation and staged a comeback in the second half, aided by own goals from Hood in the 55th and 68th minutes and D’Andre Wainwright closed down an eight goal affair in the 80th minute to make the score 5 – 3.

The result allowed Robin Hood take over sole possession of the top spot in the Premier Division.

First Division: Young Men Social Club 6 Ireland Rangers 1

Bernard Park was the scene of a thrashing of visiting Ireland Rangers by Social Club, who discovered their scoring boots after spending much of the first half of the season in the closet.

Nique Armstrong was in rampant form scoring a hat-trick for the Bluebirds, while Makai Young notched a brace and Dahlano Simmons a single tally.

For Rangers, Rashaun Seaman managed what amounted to window dressing on the result.
