Scotiabank/Pepsi Schools Football Academy tourney…Trotz’ brace leads Christ Church to victory; East Ruimveldt & Tucville girls draw
Andre Trotz Jr., son of former Beacon and National player Andre Trotz,
was on song yesterday leading Christ Church Secondary to a sweet 2-1 victory over Central High when play in the Soctiabank/Pepsi Schools Football Academy tournament continued at the Tucville Football Ground.
The promising junior player, who has scored a total of five (5) goals so far in the tournament, netted both goals for his team in the feature game for the afternoon.
The skirmish between the two schools was intense as both sides defended their territory as best they could but it was Christ Church that proved they were stronger of the two.
The high skills level of the Christ Church boys saw them creating numerous goal scoring opportunities of which two were successful. The first of Trotz’ double was netted in the 22nd minute after he received a pass from the right flank. Trotz’ right foot bomb was too much for the Central goalkeeper to handle as the ball surged under his body as hi dived to stop the ball from entering the back of the nets.
The second goal for the winners came in the 59th minute when the keeper stepped out of the box in attempt to prevent Trotz scoring again, but he was unsuccessful. Central High got their consolation goal in the last minute (60th) through Lionel Holder but it was too little to late as they lost.
East Ruimveldt and Tucville Secondary played to a 1-1 draw in the female segment of the tournament. Treola Elliot of Tucville opened the account for her team in the 30th minute.
But 9 minutes later, East Ruimveldt drew level when Oseyah Jones rocked the back of the nets to make the game interesting.
Some of the Tucville players created goal scoring chances but those opportunities all went a begging. The game persisted with no other player from either team being able to hit the network.
Meanwhile, Lodge male team earned a walk over from North Georgetown Secondary. The tournament continues on Wednesday at the same venue with a female match between Lodge and Campbellville Secondary from 16:00hrs.
