Boys' Town regis-tered their first win of the 2013/2014 Red Stripe Premier League season after defeating Cavalier
1-0 in a third-round game at Stadium East yesterday.
It was also the first defeat for Cavalier for the season, which came from the boot of midfielder Daemion Benjamin midway the first half. It was a well-taken shot from the edge of the six-yard box that surprised goalkeeper Gariece McPherson.
Winning coach Andrew Price was most pleased with the result. "This victory was not surprising. We have been playing quite well in our earlier matches, but just could not put it all together. Today we did and we got a positive result. Now that we have broken the ice we should be better prepared to continue in a more positive vein, to get similar results as the season deepens, and make winning a habit."
The defeat for the early leaders was a bitter pill to swallow, but with the season still in its early stages, coach David Lalor was not too alarmed. "I thought both teams played well, but Cavalier did not show the hunger for victory which brings positive results, and though disappointed with the result we nevertheless have to move on and look toward the next game."
With such a positive opening to the season and winning their first two games coach Lalor said that the loss was even more disappointing because "we lost at home. The players just did not seem to be hungry enough to continue the process. We made several changes, but even that did not get us into the frame of mind that earlier took us to the top of the standings".
