WESTERN BUREAU:

Striker Dino Williams scored his second goal of the season as defending champions Montego Bay United (MBU) edged Boys' Town FC 2-1 in their Red Stripe Premier League football match at Wespow Park yesterday.

It means that Boys' Town are still without a victory in the league, while MBU were registering their second consecutive win. The champions had lost their opening match.

Assistant coach Dillion Thelwell said while there were aspects of the game that were right, he felt the team needed more defensive urgency.

 

RIGHT PATH

 

"It is early into the season and yes, I do think we are on the right path. Three points today was good for us, but we needed to see more in terms of our defensive tracking," he told The Gleaner.

The decision to substitute midfielder Jermaine Woozencroft at half-time was, according to Thelwell, a change to inject more defensive presence, while taking care of Boys' Town's attackers.

Williams fired the hosts into an early lead when he converted a 16th-minute header. Speedy winger Allan Ottey was the provider.

Ottey would then score his team's go-ahead goal in the 78th minute, firing hard into the net from inside the area.

Before that, Boys' Town had equalised through Shamar Nicholson in the 73rd minute.

"This team is evolving. I think we will get it right in time," said Andrew Price, Boys' Town's head coach.
