Dream Team handed Two Touch their second straight defeat on Thursday to move to the top of the standings as action continued in the Caribbean Welders Fishing Pond Football League. Playing at the North Oropouche Ground, Two Touch may have felt they were within touching distance of the former champions after a battling performance in their 1-0 loss to El Carmen 45 last week.
But with the ball touching and bulging their net three times unanswered in the first half, that feeling was definitely a figment of their imagination or maybe a dream.
A quick-fire double from Akeem “Paw” Dandrade and one from Shaquille Edwards made it 3-0 to Dream Team who showed they meant business with clinical finishing. Two Touch sought to shake things up with a number of second half substitutions which failed to reverse the tide.
And with their opponents starting to look ragged, Dream Team showed no mercy. Two Touch did themselves no favour with an own goal to make it 4-0 while Andre Jordan and Kern Diaz added to their woes. Two Touch substitute Kareem “Wasa” Moyers got a late consolation item.
The victory pushed Dream Team to seven points from three games and look to be genuine challengers this year with a number of reinforcements and depth to their squad despite losing former captain Perry Parris.
On Tuesday, SP Boys defeated Gremio 2-1 to stay perfect after two games. Alejandro Jones had fired the 2015 losing finalists ahead but Aaron Sylvester levelled before the break for SP Boys. And Brent Jackson netted the winner in the second half to take all the points.
In the second match of the doubleheader, Express defeated Alescon FC 3-1 with Andell Allsop notching a brace and Zaz Navarro also on target for the winners.
Colin Henry scored for Alescon FC who remained winless.
Meanwhile, organisers have ruled that the match between Boys Town and El Carmen 45 will resume at a date to be determined after the floodlights came off at half-time with Boys Town leading 3-0.
