Flankers FC engineered by a late second half resurgence has shot to the top of the standings and powered themselves into the semi finals of the Sandals Resorts International/St. James FA Major League, following recent results.
The robust and youthful Flankers team holds a two point lead at the summit, replacing the fast starting, but fading Reggae Youths who held the position since the opening round of the League back in late October.
Flankers punched their ticket to the knockout round in emphatic fashion, slamming a dozen unanswered goals pass the hapless Montego Bay Boys and Girls Club (MBBGC) at the UDC field on the weekend (Saturday, January 7).
Tevin Fuller proved lethal, netting four times 24th, 42nd, 58th and 66th minutes as Flankers recorded the most emphatic scoreline of the campaign, pushing Flankers to the top of the pack with 23 points.
Duwane Samuels and Norman Streete each bagged a double while there were also strikes from Danique Clarke, Humboia Ford, Nigel Donaldson and Derrick Frater.
The result left Flankers undefeated in their last five outings, four of which were wins.
MBBGC, glued to the base of the standings without a point or a win, went behind just 60 seconds into the contest and trailed 8-0 at the halfway stage.
AMBUSH AT GRANVILLE
At the Sam Sharpe Teachers’ College playing field, home team Granville, hit by a sensational strike from Andre Tate surrendered three points to Lilliput Rovers as they suffered a tense 1-0 defeat.
The vital goal of the competitive match came in the 9th minute of play. Rovers with the victory moved into third place in the standings on 16 points.
