Mount Pearl and St. Lawrence are in a dog race for 2nd place.

It appears that Mount Pearl and St. Lawrence are into a dog race for second place that could be decided in their last game of the schedule when these teams are slated to play each other. Both teams went into this weekend with exactly the same number of points after 15 games. After this weekend’s action, where both teams defeated their opponents in two straight games, they remain tied. Mount Pearl had travelled to Corner Brook where they defeated the Western United FC team in both of their matches. As a result of Western United two losses this weekend ,they are officially knocked out of the 2010 Challenge Cup play-offs. While on the Burin Peninsula , the hometown Laurentians were celebrating St. Lawrence Day. St. Lawrence added to the hometown celebrations by shuting out the Feildians from St. John’s in two straight games at the Centennial Field. They blanked the Feildians 4-0 on Saturday and 2-0 on Sunday. Feildians have now clinched 4th and final play-off spot. On the Avalon on Saturday ,Holy Cross added 3 points to their first place standings by destroying the St. John’s Under -18’s by an 8-0 score. But the same young minor team from St. John’s showed character on Sunday when they rebounded from their devastating loss by beating the CBS representative by a 3-0 score.
