Coach Al Richards said after the match, he was pleased with the win, despite his team not performing to its best. “Congrats to my team for winning a 2-nil victory. My thoughts on the game are simple; the first game of the season, we didn’t really get it right, but we got the victory,” Richards said.
Coach Austin Dico Huggins of St. Peters, who coached his first premier league match for his new team, said his team created chances but was poor at finishing. “I think we need to be more lethal in the attacking third of the field and we need to concentrate more on the job, especially on the game plan that is laid out,” Huggins said. “That’s all we need to work on and get more involved mentally; because it is important that we remember everything that we need to do, in which area of the field that we need to do it and we need to play harder, more intense; a lot more running off the ball, so, therefore, we need to get fitter,” he said.
In the following match, defending champions S.L. Horfords St. Paul’s United were held by home side MFCR Old Road United Jets 0-0. Both teams created few chances but defended resolutely ending in a goalless draw.
