Trayon Bobb sealed the eventual result in the 44th minute as a left side shot from inside the box went comically through the legs of the goalkeeper.

The score became 2-0 in the 35th minute as Shaquille Agard netted, skipping past his marker before racing into the left side of the box and placing a left footed shot into the centre of the net.
GDF eventually pulled one back in the 69th minute through Delwyn Fraser who finished past the advancing ‘keeper in a one-on-one situation.
Conquerors are on seven points from three games while the GDF remain on three points from as many matches.
