Crunch time for four ‘big boys’


Share post:

The fates of four of the “big clubs” of Barbadian football will hang in the balance tonight, as Empire take on University of the West Indies (UWI) Blackbirds and Weymouth Wales battle Paradise in the Capelli Super Cup quarter-finals at the Wildey Turf.

Empire are one of four clubs with a 100 per cent record and were particularly impressive in the Championship stage where they scored six goals and kept two clean sheets.

UWI have stumbled into the last eight, with their only positive result in the last round being a draw, or two dropped points, against Notre Dame.

UWI still advanced ahead of Dames by virtue of losing only 3-0 to Wales, whereas Dames lost 6-0 a week prior.   (NM)
