MARTHA BRAE, Trelawny — Holland United scored a big 5-0 win over Invaders SC on Saturday to make progress to the second round of the Trelawny Football Association Victor Wright Knockout competition.

Holland United, last season's beaten finalists, join five other clubs, including defending champions Harmony FC and Super League club Falmouth United, in the draw for the second round set to be held today.

Holland United and Falmouth had scored wins on Thursday when the competition kicked off, while Prospect Links, Duanvale FC and Salt Marsh United are also through.

On Saturday, Garfield Evans scored two goals, in the sixth and 86th minutes, to lead Holland United to their big win as Nelson Adams, Christajay Daley and Kobi Brown also scored.

Onique Small of Prospect Links and Oshane Brown of Duanvale FC scored their team's goals in 2-1 wins over Spicy Hill SC and Rio Bueno FC, respectively.

Prospect Links came from behind to get their win after Lenell Cowell had given Spicy Hill the lead in the fourth minute when he converted from the penalty spot.

Small levelled the score in the 22nd minute before notching the winner in the 46th minute.

At Duanvale, the home team took the lead in the 56th minute before Kemar Hylton brought Rio Bueno level in the 65th minute, but Brown got the winner in the 77th minute.
