We spoke to a St. Pauls player Kwame Challenger after the match. “It was a well fought game for both times St. Pauls came out strong again and we gained the three points we strongly needed.
We also spoke to goalkeeper for Cayon Valentine Anthony. “It was a good game for the last game of the regular season. I think my team put up a good fight…unfortunately we lost. We just have to go back to the drawing board and come out hard for Super Six,” he said.
Meanwhile, after comfortably defeating Saddlers F.C., Coach of the St. Peters F.C. Anthony Nets Isaac, said the game was a dress rehearsal for the playoffs. “The game tonight, for me, was just a warm up going into the Super Six. This game wasn’t really important.

For Saddlers Coach Kenroy Knibbs, the team was not well prepared for the match. “We were short on preparation because we didn’t; get our field groomed as how we should…the guys performed well because this team that played today is a makeshift team,” he said. He explained that most of the players who played in that match were those who didn’t get a chance to play during the season.
