Nemwil Hope overturns System 3

NEMWIL Hope International has finally been able to get the better of their arch rival St. Vincent Motors System 3.

After having the last laugh on their three most recent outings, Hope turned the tables last week Friday night at the Victoria Park in the Premier Division of the Coca Cola Duna Water National Club Championships.{{more}}

The two titans of local football have been at it for some time appearing in several finals, with the most recent being the South Leeward league last July, when System 3 turned out to be victors.

Two goals from Cauldric Sutherland on either side of the halves and a second half strike from Sean Glynn gave Hope the 3-0 triumph. Sutherland, 24, is making a resurgence in national football after an injury suffered in 2003, while on tour with the senior national team in England stalled his promising career.

Sutherland, a former national Under-17 midfielder, who got his early training with the once powerful Pepsi Sion Hill was also Hope’s marksman in their 1-1 tie with Je Belle the previous weekend.

System 3 though, had a consolation as their first division outfit returned the compliment with a 2-0 win in the lower division.

Also making their mark on the competition last weekend was Chelsea. The South Leeward based club beat Pastures 4-1, in the first of the premier double headers last week Friday.

Chelsea had a second triumph, this time over K and R Strikers 2-0, and Je Bellle had a 4-2 win over Cane End.

In other premier division results, Hot Spurs and Samba played to a 1-1 draw and Avenues whipped Stingers 3-0.

The First Division shared the spotlight as the championships got into high gear. Hill View and Chelsea played to a two all draw, so too did Richmond Hill and Pastures.

In a Campden Park derby, Parkside Rollers silenced Rocksdale 3-0. Strike Force ousted Brighton 3-1 and Keartons edged out Enforcers 1-0.
