first_imgMichael Blygen’s hat-trick rescued Boys’ Town from embarrassment against lower leaguers Maxfield Park, in their Locker Room Sports KSAFA/Jackie Bell Knockout game at Collie Smith Complex yesterday.The home team surrendered a two-goal lead to the Major League outfit, which came back from two-nil down to level at 2-2. But two late goals from the former Tivoli Gardens striker saw the home team win 4-2.After a dour and goalless first half, Boys’ Town went in front just before the hour (59th) when Blygen flicked the ball over the Maxfield goalkeeper and it fell into the goal. Minutes later, Chavanney Willis made it 2-0 when he latched on to a through ball and slotted home.However, the visitors responded minutes later when Romaine Mullington was on the end of a good build-up to tap the ball past the Boys’ Town custodian. And before Boys’ Town realised what hit them, Nico Reynolds, Maxfield’s best player, equalised with a rasping shot from the edge of the box.Maxfield nearly went ahead in the 80th minute, but referee Carvel Banton adjudged that the ball had not crossed the goalline. Then on the counter, Boys’ Town went straight up field and Blygen capitalised on a loose ball to make it 3-2.The former Humble Lion and Rivoli player sealed the win two minutes from time when he broke away and calmly slotted home.Blygen spent the second-half of last season in the Dominican Republic, but missed most of that campaign through injury.”So far in the Premier League, things have been very disappointing. I hope this will be a stepping stone for me to get more playing time and deliver for my team and try to help them make the top four,” he said.”Last season, I joined Boys’ Town in January, then went on a trial overseas in Dominica Republic. I made the team and played three matches, but injury got the better of me. But this season I am back, so I am just taking it a step at a time and doing my best and see what happens.”So I hope this hat-trick gives coach more confidence in me because I have always worked hard, but the team has been up and down; we are not being consistent. So I hope that this is a stepping stone for me to get time on the pitch,” he reasoned.Coach Andrew Price is also hoping this is a turning point for his striker.”I hope that this will be a catalyst for him (Blygen) to assist us in the third round. Boys’ Town always play better football in the third round, and we are preparing ourselves assiduously to really make a good run and see where it leads us,” he declared.Yesterday’s resultsBarbican 1 UWI 0Waterhouse 2 Maverley/Hughenden 1Boys’ Town 4 Maxfield 2Today’s games3 p.m. August Town vs Bull Bay at UWI Mona Bowl3 p.m. Olympic Gardens vs Real Mona at Cling Cling Oval3 p.m. Rockfort vs Cavalier at Rockfort3 p.m. Cooreville Gardens vs Arnett Gardens at Duhaney Park7 p.m. Harbour View vs Tivoli Gardens at Harbour View Stadiumlast_img read more

Croatia qualified for their fifth World Cup as a 4-1 first-leg win allowed them to book their ticket to Russia via a goalless draw with Greece.Zlatko Dalic’s men comfortably continued the containment job that had started in the 50th minute of Thursday’s fixture in Zagreb, when they opened up a three-goal cushion.Greece coach Michael Skibbe made six changes in the hope of sparking a special comeback in Piraeus, but his side offered next to no attacking threat in a mundane encounter. A disallowed goal in the 79th minute was as good as they could muster.

Congratulations, Croatia! They qualify for a nd consecutive #WorldCup and their th in total! #WCQ pic.twitter.com/GbydR3E89i— #WCQ (@FIFAWorldCup) November 12, 2017Though a throaty roar greeted the first whistle, the home side’s lack of invention soon muted the crowd and off-target long-range efforts from Anastasios Bakasetas and Sokratis Papastathopoulos were all Greece had to show for a soporific first half.Captain Vasilis Torosidis did his best to bring some entertainment, entering a long-running row with Nikola Kalinic.Goalkeeper Danijel Subasic was not called into action until the 41st minute when he nipped Zeca’s flick-on off the head of Kostas Mitroglou, but the visitors served a reminder of their attacking threat by marching up to the other end, Ivan Perisic clattering the post with a rifled left-footer from 30 yards.Mitroglou drove wide just before the hour, but Greece could not alter the pattern of play in the second half as Croatia’s defence continued to pick off their opponents’ ceaseless wayward passing.Substitute Dimitrios Pelkas had the ball in the net 11 minutes from time, but Torosidis was clearly offside in the build-up.A game that produced just one shot on target – a deflected Panagiotis Tachtsidis effort from the edge of the box three minutes from time – did little to lift spirits, but it will have been cheered throughout Croatia, as they now look to better group-stage eliminations in their past three World Cup appearances. read morelast_img read more
