Cavalier wrapped up the Kingston and St Andrew Football Association (KSAFA) Yellow Pages Super League title following a 1-1 draw with Barbican at Collie Smith Drive yesterday.

The champions have an unassailable 47 points with two rounds to go. Second place Rae Town, who lost to Constant Spring yesterday, are on 37 points.

Norman Bailey scored the all-important goal for Cavalier in the 26th minute while Shawn Laws was on target for Barbican. The point gave Cavalier their third straight KSAFA Super League title.

"We have been preparing for the play-offs (Confederation) and I think we shall come out on top this trip," said David Laylor, coach of Cavalier.

Still confident

Top forward Fabian Nethersole is injured but Laylor is still confident going in the play-offs.

"A striker like Nethersole you will say is irreplaceable, but even without him we are prepared for it," said Laylor.

In yesterday's match, Cavalier were on top from very early and went in front when Troyland Williams found Bailey in the 18-yard box and the latter gave his team the lead. Laws got the equaliser for Barbican in the 48th minute.

In other results yesterday, Santos defeated August Town 2-1 with goals from André Moulton, 67th minute and Leon Gordon 79th. Sheldon Jones (18th) scored for August Town.

Rockfort blanked UWI 3-0. The goals came from Twaine Winter (31st), Calvin Campbell (77th min) and Ricardo Rowe, 90th.

Greenwich Town beat Duhaney Park 3-0 courtesy of a hat-trick from Richard Stultz. Stultz scored in the 4th, 31st and 89th minutes.

Saski Daley (80th) and Dwayne Stewart (90th) were the scorers as Constant Spring defeated Rae Town 2-1. Odane Sutherland (64th) netted for Rae Town. The match between Mountain View and Olympic Gardens ended 0-0.
