TUCKER, St James — Danique Wilson scored four times as Springers FC won the first-ever Montego Bay derby in the Jamaica Women's Premier League, beating Real MoBay 7-2 in the cross-zone game at Wespow Park on Saturday.

Wilson scored the initial two of her quartet in the first half as Springers FC won their second game of the season. On the other hand, Real MoBay failed to build on their first win when they edged Rangers FC last weekend.

There were wins for Cavalier FC over Olympic Gardens and Mile Gully CC over Baptist Alliance.

At Wespow Park, Wilson scored in the eighth, 26th, 57th and 61st minutes for Springers FC. Gabrielle Brydson scored in the 45th and 60th minutes while Keshara Bailey came off the bench to get the other goal.

Tamalee Foster, who came on as a substitute for Real MoBay, scored in the 64th minute but later had a penalty kick saved, while Kryhana Reid got the team's other goal in the 66th minute.

Zone B leaders Cavalier beat Olympic Gardens 3-1 at the Captain Horace Burrell Centre of Excellence with goals from Keisha Thomas from the penalty spot in the seventh minute, Sade Berry in the 30th, and Suen Gregory in the 58th.

Ashlee Sawyers scored the lone goal for Olympic Gardens in the 63rd minute.

Mile Gully CC, with goals from Megan Sanchez in the seventh minute and Nickels Thomas in the 22nd, beat Baptist Alliance 2-1. Cinnel Smith scored for the St Thomas-based team in the 89th minute.
