A second-minute goal from Jorge Corpas Torres saw St Joseph’s beat Manchester 62 1-0 tonight.
After Lincoln’s 7-0 win last night, Saints would have wanted to keep up their momentum with another three points, and Corpas’ goal earned them all three points.
Manchester went in the game also with four points from two games, but an uncharacteristic mistake from Gibraltar international Brian Perez saw Corpas take advantage and finish past Droubi.
Both teams had a host of chances to add to the sole goal at the Victoria, most notably when Manchester’s Aaron Payas hit the bar with a long range effort. Despite the chances enjoyed by both teams though, and a red card for Saints player Emerson, St Joseph’s left the Victoria with all three points.
Saints move up to second in the league, behind Lincoln on goal difference, and face Britannia next weekend. For Manchester, they find themselves seventh, albeit level on points with Britannia in third. They will look to bounce back a week tomorrow against Angels, who lost 3-0 to Lions in the day’s early game.
