Home boys getting job done at Bull Bay
Robert Bailey, Gleaner Writer
Promoted Bull Bay edged last year's beaten finalists Mountain View 1-0 to record their second straight victory in Zone B of the Kingston and St Andrew Football Association (KSAFA)/Jamaica National Super League.
Donovan McCurdy scored the lone goal for the Paul Hibbert-coached Bull Bay in the 86th minute. However, Bull Bay played most of the game with 10 players after their captain, Bevil Grossett, was issued a straight red card in the 15th minute.
Bull Bay defeated August Town 2-1 in the opening game.
Seeking third win
The East Kingston-based team will go in search of its third win of the season, when it takes on Rae Town on Saturday at Bull Pen.
Despite being confident, Hibbert expects a tough game.
"Rae Town are seasoned in the Super League and so they won't be easy to beat," Hibbert said. "However, it is a home game for us and we will try our best to defend our home turf."
The coach also expressed satisfaction with his youthful team's success over Mountain View.
"I am pleased with the victory because we are playing very good football with a relatively young team.
"However, I am not surprised with how we have been playing because we are one of the few teams in the competition that is using pure local-based players from Bull Bay," Hibbert pointed out.
