Holy Cross Hits the Win Column

 With six points on the table this weekend for Holy Cross , Mount Pearl , Feildians and St. Lawrence a lot was at stake for all four clubs. When the final tally was done Holy Cross had the greatest tally this past weekend achieving four out of a possible six points.  Holy Cross on Saturday battled to get only their third point of the season tying Mount Peral 1-1. All-star Jake Warren scored his first of the season and it was Scotty Woodfine beating  Thomas Pieroway to allow Mount Pearl to clinch a tie.  This tie by Holy Cross was followed up with their best game of the season when the Crusaders  blanked the 1st place St. Lawrence  Laurentians on Sunday by a 2-0 score. Against St. Lawrence,  Tyler Kirby may have not hit the scoreboard on Sunday but it was his running ability combined with his passing skills which set up goals from Holy Cross's, Mike Dunn and Jake Warren thus allowing Holy Cross to get their much needed first win of the season.  On Sunday, the Laurentians started well but lacked discipline throughout the contest. As a result of their undisciplined play before the contest concluded, they were playing two men down as a result of two red cards issued to their players.  St. Lawrence on the other hand on Saturday were were in excellent form. They defeated Feildians 3-0  in a very convincing form with goals coming off the boot of Laurentians Stefan Slaney, Brent Hennebury and Jordan Caines.  John Douglas recorded the Laurentian shut-out.  Meanwhile Mount Pearl managed to get two points over the weekend with their 1-1 tie against Holy Cross and with their scoreless tie against Feildians on Sunday.  Meanwhile, Feildians who had gone into the weekend with an undefeated record, failed to score a goal in their two contests but did manage to pick up one point in their scoreless tie on Sunday in Mount Pearl.
