Wounded Seba FC and Revelation will go in search of a first win when the two lock horns in one of two matches on tomorrow in the St. James FA Sandals/ATL Senior Football League at the UDC field.

The red and green-clad Seba will be hoping to mark a victory having suffered defeat in their opening match of the campaign, a first such feat in two seasons.
Two of the League more attractive-playing teams, Irwin and Club Stars, are scheduled to battle in the other game to be contested at Irwin.
Both matches are slated to kick off at 3 p.m.

HEIGHTS IMPRESSIVE

Meanwhile at the start of the weekend, Heights pumped in four unanswered goals inside 25 minutes to score a come-from-behind 4-1 thumping of the muchhyped Lilliput Rovers at the UDC field.

In the late-starting affair, Heights created several scoring chances in the early stages and dominated the attacking plays, seeming likely to score with every attack, but slipped behind through a rocket from the Rovers attacker who rifled home from the right of the goal after being put through on a build up down the wing.
Anthony Gooden leveled things for Heights in the second half when he nodded past the flat-footed goalkeeper.
Following the goal, Heights’ attacking play and movements off the ball increased in tempo as they continued to cut through their opponents’ disorganized backline at will.

An own-goal, another from veteran Garth Johnson, who should have ended with at least five on the day, closed out the sensational comeback with a well-taken strike.

Heights, last season’s beaten finalists, with the three points marked their first win of the season, which has this year’s format as a League
The competitive showdown which was full of goal-mouth activities, saw several missed chances by the weakened Heights team, which has seen many of their top stars migrate to other clubs.
