Sylvans 1, Vale Rec 3

A BATTLING performance saw Vale Rec have too much for a valiant Sylvans at St Peter’s and with it maintained their Priaulx League title challenge.

On a bitterly cold afternoon, the only surviving senior match on the island gave the fans decent viewing, as Rec can count themselves somewhat fortunate that they closed the gap on Bels to five points and with three games in hand.

They have played better this season, something coach Carl Le Tissier later admitted, but ultimately their superior finishing power in front of goal was the difference.
