Mavericks threw a wrench in NSC's plans of coming back for their title.
The University of the West Indies are staring a second title in the Women's League in the face. After moving five points clear of the next-nearest team in the latest round of games, the UWI ladies have carved a clear path to another championship after first winning in 2015.
Playing this past Sunday at the Usain Bolt Sports Complex, the leaders roared to another three points with a massive 15-0 drubbing of Ellerton. Caitlin Padmore opened the scoring with goals in the 17th and 18th minutes before going on to complete a beaver-trick with two more in the 67th and 70th. She was joined by Rianna Cyrus who also scored four in the 22nd, 43rd, 66th and 89th. UWI Captain Ashanee Thompson got in on the action with a hat-trick on her own after beating the keeper in the 67th, 79th and 84th. Julia Arsan picked up a brace for herself with goals in the 77th and 81st minutes while even defender Shanelle Als got up the field to net in the 49th. The other goal came from an error that saw Charlene James putting the ball in her own nets in the 30th.
While UWI was going forward, the National Sports Council was falling down the the ladder as they dropped points and position to end up in third after a 2-0 loss to Mavericks. Mavericks now in second place after completing their quota of games, opened the scoring in the 28th minute through the efforts of 12 year-old Alana Boyce. With both teams playing short of a full deck, Mavericks added a second goal in the second half when Felicia Jarvis scored her 20th goal of the season in the 51st minute to seal the deal.
UWI have one last game ahead of them while NSC have two. However, UWI would need to lose their last game and Sports Council win both of their games so handsomely to overcome UWI's superior goal-difference.
