The BV/Triumph 8th of May Movement Emancipation Cohesion Football League, which is largely sponsored by Bakewell/Lloyd W P Britton/G O Benjamin/GLDA and NAREI , on Sunday last, witnessed Plaisance exerting their power over St. John’s Basco Orphanage. Plaisance, entering the second round after a commendable first round display against country team Mahaica, in which they lost 0-1, clearly worked their plan against St. John’s Basco, putting them on the defence very early in the match, with Travis Simon scoring within the first two minutes of the encounter.
Throughout the match, Plaisance demonstrated their team’s outstanding capabilities, with the exhibition of high levels of skill, tactic and professionalism. These traits, which proved highly competitive for their first round challengers Mahaica, evidently gave second round opponents St. John’s Basco a horrendous time, as four goals were scored in the first half of the 60 minute match encounter, with Denzil King, Dwayne King and Vincent Thomas, respectively scoring in the 15, 18 and 23rd minutes. And as if this wasn’t enough to rub salt into the wounds of St. John’s Basco, Plaisance’s Vincent Thomas completed a triple when he added to his first half goal, by netting in the 41st and 60th minutes of the match encounter, to give Plaisance a convincing victory of 6 goals to nil.
Plaisance will play their third and final round preliminary encounter, against Eastveldt – one of the spectators’ favorites to win the league, on Friday from 20:15 hours at the BV Playground.
