#THE University of The Bahamas men’s soccer team expected the biggest match of the season so far against BearsFC. It turned out like a normal day at the office for The Mingoes.
#The UB Mingoes took out a depleted Bears side 5-1 in Bahamas Football Association action on Sunday, October 16 at The Roscow R.L. Davies pitch to take sole possession of first place in the league.
#Mingoes midfielder Ronaldo Green again scored a hat trick plus one in the match in a very physically aggressive match. Green scored in the 22nd, 57th, 73rd and 89th minutes of the match.
#The Bears’ lone goal came in the 56th minute. That goal celebration was short-lived as Green responded in less than one minute later.
#The Bears top player was out of commission because of a red card penalty in a previous match.
#O’Bryan Hinds scored first for the Mingoes on a brilliant shot in the 15th minute to start things off for The Mingoes. It was his second goal for the team and on the season.
#Green said the match was not up to what the team expected but they got the job done.
#“It was a brilliant win for us,” Green said. “The Bears didn’t have a few of their players due to a red card but we came out and got the job done for UB today.”
#Green added that the team was focused and hopes to keep the momentum for the rest of the season.
#“We kept the ball moving and as a team we learned from the mistakes that we had from the past few games,” he said. “We are learning and we’re going to keep improving.”
#The Mingoes now have sole possession of the top spot in the BFA’s men’s league with a 4-0 record.
