Blackbirds contune to impress
 
The UWI Blackbirds continued to impress in the Barbados Digicel Premier with a hard fought victory over Paradise, a well established top division team. After being dominated by the opposition in the first half, the Blackbirds went into the half time break down 1-0. Mario Harte then equalised early in the second half. Both teams then registered two quick goals, taking the score to 2-2, before UWI suffered a blow with Tito Beckles being ejected from the match.

With about 5 minutes left to play, momentum stopped as a result of light failure, a much welcomed break for a depleted team. Ironically, the 10-man Blackbirds team was able to maintain composure and deliver a telling blow, with Dario Harewood scoring in the last minute of injury time to walk away with all 3 points and maintain 3rd place in the standings.
