Rendezvous, UWI clash in KFC Cup


Share post:

Defending champions Rendezvous will be kicking toward another ‘So Good’ pay day of $20 000 when the KFC Champions Cup moves into the third round on Saturday.
This round will see the entrance of the ten premier teams joining battle with 12 Division one sides, six from Division two and four of third division.
Last year, Rendezvous, then playing in Division Two, rolled over all to clinch the first prize.
When the draws were made yesterday by Forde and Shekelia Barrow, KFC marketing manager, at the headquarters of the Barbados Olympic Association, Wildey, Rendezvous earned the home game status as well as a matchup with fellow Banks Division One side UWI.
Only last Saturday, Rendezvous maintained their 14-match winning record when they defeat UWI 2-0 in a top-of-the-table Division One clash at Orange Hill.
Vincentians Myron Samuel (25th minute) and Romano Snagg (67th) scored the goals for Rendezvous, who moved to 42 points while UWI?are on 38 from 16 matches. With Ellerton lying in third position on 26 points from 14 matches, both Rendezvous and UWI?are on course to gaining promotion to next year’s Premier League for the first time. 
Meanwhile, six of the premier teams will face each other in the third round.
Weymouth Wales meet Pharmaceutical Plus Cosmos, DirecTV Paradise will battle Pinelands and the heartbreaker draw sees Pride of Gall Hill facing the BDF Sports Programme.
According to Mark “Bob” Forde of the Barbados Football Association, there was no seeding of the Premier teams as an effort was being made to keep the competition as exciting as possible.
Although there has been no increase in the prizes, the second placed team can still earn a good fee of $10 000 while third will win $5 000 and fourth $3 000.
Forde also said the closeness of the teams should see some keenly contested games and noted there was a likelihood that matches could be staged almost every night. (KB)
