EDITH Dalton-James tagged STATHS 2-0 at Bumper Hall yesterday to maintain their fourth-place position on seven points in Group A of the 2013 ISSA/LIME Manning Cup campaign.
Meanwhile, a young and struggling STATHS remain rooted at the bottom of the football competition with a single point.
It was a poorly contested game, but the visitors had the better of the exchanges and were more forthright on goal than their hosts and it was little surprise when they took the lead through Dillon Edwards in time added to the first half.
STATHS, in some measure, matched Edith Dalton-James in defence and the midfield, but their final third performance was atrocious, laced with wayward shooting.
Kicking towards the sea in the second session, STATHS came more into the game and should have at least equalised, but the wet under foot condition took its toll.
Edith Dalton, whose players were bigger and stronger, eventually scored another goal through second-half substitute Kimarley Graham to put the match out of the reach of STATHS, to leave them at the bottom of the standings.
