Bombers, Benguche, San Antonio and Scorpions win
The 16 teams that started the competition are now down to 8, and the home-and-away quarterfinal series began over the weekend in the FFB Champion of Champions Inter-District Tournament with one game on Saturday and three on Sunday.
At the MCC on Saturday night, Brown Bombers clipped Progresso FC, 1-0, on a goal from Darrell Myvette, a header in heavy traffic off a swerving corner by Edon “Yellow Man” Rowley at the 4th minute. Progresso came back strong in second half, but Bombers held on for the 1-nil win.

Estrellas got a goal apiece from Darrol Lambey (25 min) and Christopher Burke. Meanwhile, at the Ricalde Stadium it was San Antonio FC, 2-1, over Madrid FC. Russel Cassanova (45 min) and Darnel Mossiah (52 min) shook the net for San Antonio; while Eder Diaz (14 min) tallied for Madrid. And at the Michael Ashcroft Stadium, Independence Scorpions bombed Santa Elena Synergy, 6-1. Sharing in the scoring for the Scorpions were Devaughn Thompson (40 & 50 min), Ever Centeno (45 min), Jose Melendez (69 min), Edwardo Oliva (88 min) and Elmer Godoy (89 min). Santa Elena’s consolation goal was by Calbert Neal (76 min).
