UPDATE: ROSA DRAWS TO REMAIN TOP OF SUPER LEAGUE

Rashad Griffith scored a hat-trick to lead Sports and Games FC Santa Rosa to a 3:3 draw with third placed Matura Reunited FC yesterday at the Marvin Lee Stadium, ensuring that the Big Cannons remained atop the Super League table.

Rashad was in unstoppable form in a match Rosa needed to win to extend its lead on second placed Club Sando, which traveled to Tobago for a difficult match against Phoenix FC.

Matura scored first (12″) but Rashad equalized with a trademark header (22″), and Kitwana Manning saved a Matura penalty in the thirty-first minute to preserve the 1:1 half-time to the half. Rashad gave Rosa a solid 3:1 lead with two rapid fire goals (47″, 52″ penalty), his ninth and tenth of the season, as the match exploded in the second half. Surprisingly poor defending in the penalty area saw Rosa uncharacteristically concede two quick goals (54″, 56″). Both teams went in search of a winner for the rest of the half and Keron Clarke appeared to have hit a fourth Rosa goal in the seventieth minute when he kept his balance after a foul tackle and hammered the ball into the Matura net only for the referee to call the play back to give a free kick.

In the end, Club Sando drew 1:1 in Tobago and Santa Rosa kept its pace atop the Super League for a sixth week, with twenty-one points from its eleven matches. The Big Cannons travel to the Maracas Valley to face Real Maracas on Sunday 28 August.
