Cavalier snap Molynes unbeaten streak - Promoted team suffers first loss of season

By Sports Desk October 20, 2019

Cavalier handed promoted Molynes United their first loss of the season with a 3-1 drubbing in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) at Waterhouse Stadium on Sunday.

The RSPL newcomers have enjoyed a rosy start to life in the top flight, winning their first six games of the season before drawing with Harbour View last weekend.  Cavalier were determined to ensure that they did mount a quick recovery and dominated throughout the encounter.

Chevonne Marsh gave the visitors an early lead in the 22nd minute and with the match heading towards halftime, Keithy Simpson doubled that advantage with his goal in the 42nd minute.  The game seemed to be well and truly over by the time Nicholas Hamilton added a third goal in the 82nd minute but Anthony Greenland got a consolation goal for the hosts in stoppage time.

 Elsewhere, league leaders Waterhouse failed to take advantage of the Molynes United slip-up as they were themselves hammered 3-1 by Mount Pleasant.  Jourdaine Fletcher put the hosts in the lead in the 40th minute, with Francios Swaby doubling that lead just five minutes later.  Andre Fletcher, however, made things interesting when he found the back of the net in the 81st minute, setting up the potential of a grandstand finish.  The two-goal advantage was restored when Kesslon Hall struck in time added on.

Tivoli Gardens left things late but still grabbed all three points when Davian Garrison found the back of the net in the 82nd minute.  In other matches, Humble Lions and Harbour View played to a 0-0 draw at Effortville, while UWI and Vere United played to a 1-1 draw at UWI bowl.

  • Hazard reveals he has rejected multiple PSG offers Hazard reveals he has rejected multiple PSG offers

    Real Madrid star Eden Hazard says he has rejected multiple offers from Paris Saint-Germain and would never sign for the Ligue 1 champions.

    The Belgium international claims he has always made it clear he would only return to France's top flight to play for former club Lille, the team he left in 2012 to join Chelsea.

    PSG were linked with a move for Hazard before the completed a switch to Madrid this year for a reported €100million fee.

    "No, never," he told L'Equipe when asked if he would ever join PSG.

    "They've often wanted to sign me. I didn't want to come back to Ligue 1 and with another club to Lille.

    "I always told them no. In my head, it was clear.

    "They're a club who can help you win the Champions League, but they were not in my plans. If I come back to Ligue 1, it will be with Lille."

    Hazard has struggled to make a significant impact in Spain since arriving from Chelsea in June.

    The 28-year-old has scored only once in eight appearances in all competitions and has been accused in some quarters of being overweight.

    Hazard this week denied those suggestions, telling Sky Sports: "For the last month, I've been in good condition with no injuries.

    "I'm in good shape. When I'm on the pitch I will always try to do my best, with Real Madrid or Belgium. I just want to keep this momentum."

    Madrid host Real Sociedad in LaLiga on Saturday before they face PSG in the Champions League at the Santiago Bernabeu next Tuesday.
