The bottom of the table clash between Cool & Smooth Empire and Pigotts Bullets produced a much anticipated match up and at the end of the day Bullets shot down Empire.

The Pigotts men won 2-1 to move to within a point of the former 14-time champions and two points behind Hospitality Services Sea View Farm.

The race at the bottom is now more intense that at the top.

It was the feature on Saturday and Empire was expected to win to put pressure of Farm, precariously positioned third from the bottom of the standings.

From the start it seemed like Empire was thirsty but it was Bullets who drew ‘first blood’ a Vivian Riachards strike four minutes in.

Twelve minutes later, Dare Mellanson equalized from the penalty spot an extremely ‘soft’ call by referee Brian Willett on a tap in the area.

Bullets never relented and got the game-winner ten minutes from time via a powerful strike by Alickson Montoute from inside the six.

His initial shot was blocked by a defender but the ball stayed in his reach and the second time was a charm beating goalie Kendel Honere from close range.

Bullets close in on Empire but still at the bottom of the table on ten points one adrift of the former 14-time champions.

In the first game of the double header at the ARG Bassa moved into third place following a 1-0 win over La Bussola Willikies.

Bassa jumped to 18 points one ahead of defending champions Parham and eleven points from the top.

Roger Hurst finally made the breakthrough for Bassa early in the second half after Olson “Heights” Ford and the Willikies defence held strong for 50 minutes.

Willikies never looked the pesky attacking force that showed up the previous three matches and Bassa took full advantage.

They remain on 14 points tied with Sap who play today against Hoppers one point better.
