Joe Public, looked every bit the defending champion as they defeated M&M Harvard 4-0 in their Sportworld National Super League match at the Marvin Lee Stadium, yesterday.
Roen Nelson opened the scoring in the 18th minute setting off a chain reaction among his fellow Jamaican team-mates Wolry Wolfe and Carlington Smith.
Wolfe added Public’s second in the 37th minute and Smith put in a quick double in the 88th and 89th minutes.
Public’s closest challengers, Crab Connection enjoyed a 2-0 win over Angostura 1976 F.C Phoenix at the Wasa ground, St Joseph.
Crab’s Marvin Oliver broke the stalemate in the 60th minute and Brian Wallace added in the 86th minute.
Police’s 4-0 win over Maraval Youth Academy at the Trinity College ground, Moka was marred by disciplinary problems.
Police got goals from Neri Joseph (39th), Randy Harris (53rd), Jason Boodram (61st) and Edmund Homer (76th).
Homer picked a pair of yellow cards in the 76th and 88th following Maraval’s Lindsay Grell to an early shower, he was also yellow carded twice, in the 47th and 63rd minutes.
