ALBION, St James — Jermy Bucknor scored a brace as Lilliput Rovers blanked Melbourne Mind Games 3-0 to kick off their championships quest in the St James Football Association/Sandals Major League at Albion last Friday.

Lilliput Rovers are the first team to record a victory after Cambridge FC and MoBay City FC drew 1-1 at the UDC, field, while Montego Bay Boys Club and Bogue FC had played out a goalless tie in the opening game played last Wednesday.

Bucknor gave Lilliput Rovers the lead after 22 minutes and they led 1-0 at the half-time break before Robert Lewis made it 2-0 in the 52nd minute.

Bucknor scored his second and the team's third in the 79th minute as they pocketed all three points to take the early lead in Zone One.

At UDC field, promoted Cambridge FC came back from a goal down to earn a 1-1 draw against MoBay City FC, leaving four teams tied on one point in Zone Two.

Chris Christian shot MoBay City into the lead after just five minutes, but Anthony Brown levelled for Cambridge FC in the 79th minute as both teams joined Montego Bay Boys 'Club and Bogue FC all on one point.
