Entering the weekend top of the standings due to superior goal difference over Bodden Town, Elite looked to maintain that position before a month-long break in league play. However, they faced an Academy side that had not surrendered points in three weeks.

Academy led at the half, thanks to a 10th minute strike from 16 year-old Kion Parchmont. Elite equalised eight minutes into the second half with John Ortega Fox getting the goal.

The teams split the points. After the club’s second draw of the season, Elite now has 17 points, two adrift from Bodden Town, while Academy is third with 16 points.
