Golden ‘Tuffy’ - Veteran striker scores again as Boys’ Town continue Magnum KSAFA Super League march
Boys' Town FC appear to have struck gold with the acquisition of striker Jermaine 'Tuffy' Anderson, as the forward scored once again to hand them a 1-0 victory over Santos FC in their Magnum KSAFA Super League football match at Constant Spring Complex.
In only his second match, the former national striker has enabled the Red Brigade to gain six points in total, as he had also scored twice in their previous match, ensuring a 2-1 win over Rockfort FC. Now, the Reds are right up there in the running for a semi-final spot.
Saturday's win lifted Boys' Town to third place in the group on 13 points, three less than Brown's Town and five adrift Zone B leaders Central Kingston, which shot to 18 points with their sixth consecutive win in Friday night's 2-1 success against Rockfort FC. Karim Brown scored both goals for Central Kingston, while Albert Aarons scored for Rockfort FC.
Rockfort lie third from bottom on five points, the same as Mountain View FC, who were beaten 2-0 by Brown's Town FC, also on Friday, through goals from Dillon McEnnis.
Santos FC, meanwhile, are bottom of the standings in Zone B on two points, this after suffering their fifth loss of the season.
Prior to their Saturday match, there was a Zone A encounter that Real Mona FC won 1-0 against unlucky Constant Spring FC. Former Tivoli Gardens FC midfielder, Jamoy Sibbles, scored the game's lone goal for Real Mona, lifting the team to second in Zone A on 13 points, four less than leaders Barbican FC, which won last year.
The defending champions, the only unbeaten team in the competition, extended their overall tally to 17 points after wrapping up their fifth win, a 1-0 margin against Molynes United in the feature game of Sunday night's Super League double-header.
In the other game, Dale Reid struck the only goal to hand Meadforest United FC a 1-0 victory over Maxfield Park FC.
Meanwhile, in Magnum KSAFA Major League action on the weekend, Seaview Gardens, led by Zenard Street's hat-trick, emerged the biggest winners, hammering Pembroke Hall 4-0 in their Zone A match last Saturday. Kemoy Bailey scored the other goal.
In other Zone A matches, Duhaney Park climbed off the bottom with a 1-0 shocker over leaders Police National; while Cooreville Gardens and Shortwood United played to a 1-1 draw. Omar Pryce scored for Cooreville Gardens, while Kimarley Smalling netted for Shortwood.
Police lead with 15 points, followed by Seaview (13), Shortwood (11), Olympic (10), Cooreville (nine), Duhaney Park (five) and Pembroke Hall (four).
In Major League Zone B, Tevin Brown and Alvarez Cooper scored to hand Liguanea United a 2-1 win over August Town, for whom Orane Thorpe scored; Kenardo Hunter netted a double in Bull Bay's 2-0 win over Swallowfield; while New Kingston and Greenwich Town ended 2-2.
