Mocha challenged Future Stars in the following game, but the latter ended up with a 3-2 win. A double from Lennox Young in the 21st and 23rd minutes, and one goal from Keron Solomon (28th) was enough to beat Mocha’s 2 goals from Amos Ramsay and Rondel Smith in the 10th and 30th respectively.
Gold is Money eased past Albouystown in a come-from- behind style, compliments of a hat trick from Darren Benjamin. Benjamin found the back of the net in the 13th, 22nd and 23rd, while Michael Oje added the first to Gold is Money’s tally in the 6th minute.
Albouystown’s reply came from Dwayne James (4th) and Timothy Thomas (8th) who each netted one goal.

Espanyol’s consolation goal came off the boots of Alejandro Ramos in the 30th minute.
