PRESS RELEASE – Saturday fixture between top tier teams Market Road and Fond St. Jacques proved an interesting due as both teams had a point to prove wanting to emerge from the shadows of the traditional winners and truly contend for the title.

The game was delicately balanced as both teams battled for supremacy. However, it was FOND ST. JACQUES who left it late to get the winner in the 57th minute (Alvin Mitchel) to send MARKET ROAD crashing to a 2-1 defeat at hands of the lads from the food basket of Soufriere. FINAL SCORE MARKET ROAD 1- FOND ST. JACQUES 2.
