Social Club 3 St Davidís 2

Young Menís Social Club enjoyed a come-from-behind victory over St Davidís at North Field, National Sports Centre yesterday.

Jahmir Lewis-Trott swept in Phillip Malloryís cross at the near post to settle the game.

St Davidís would have felt hard done by given the amount of chances they wasted.

However, credit must be given to Social Club for the manner in which they stuck to their task, despite having to come from behind twice. Diego McCallan got St Davidís off to a flying start after meeting a cross and lashing into the roof of the net.

St Davidís had the ball in the net again after McCallan intercepted a poor pass by Donovan Adams, the Social Club goalkeeper, but the effort was ruled offside. Social Club equalised shortly after losing their defender Khylais Rawlings, who was injured in an aerial challenge.

Striker Nique Armstrong made a run into St Davidís terrain before unleashing a shot into the top corner. The home side wasted a opportunity to go ahead when Rawlingsís replacement Psalm Darrell placed a header wide from a corner. St Davidís nearly regained the lead after the break when Wolde Jones hit the post. However, St Davidís substitute Jamal Woodley squeezed in a rebound that bounced off the crossbar. Kenneth Butterfield brought the teams level from the penalty spot after Jones fouled Mallory before Lewis-Trottís clinical finish put the home side in front for the first time.
