Christianburg / Wismar Secondary (C/burg) ensured a fourth consecutive trip to the championship game after they defeated New Silvercity Secondary via the penalty route in their semi-final clash recently in this year’s Edward ‘Screw’ Richmond Memorial Schools Football Competition.
The result means that they’ve confirmed a final showdown with heavy-hitters Linden Technical Institute (LTI) tomorrow, at the Mackenzie Sports Club (MSC) ground.
The Multi boys, who fell two goals behind after the first semi-final meeting with New Silvercity, saw a renewed chance to make it to the championship round after scoring goals in either side of the interval to gain a 2-0 victory on the night for a (2-2 aggregate). Even after 20 minutes of extra time, the two teams could not be separated thereby necessitating penalty kicks to decide the winner.
Excellent goalkeeping from C/burg / Wismar’s custodian combined with a bit of misfortune on the part of New Silvercity dented their hopes of reaching the final, going down 2-3 in the shootout.
Fans and supporters could now look forward to a mouth-watering final clash between C/burg / Wismar and LTI.
The second semi-final saw LTI in typical fashion demolish Mackenzie High 6-1 on the night for a (10-2 aggregate).
Here are the full results of those games:
New Silvercity Secondary School 0 (2) – (3) 2 C/burg / Wismar Secondary
Omeion Wills (CWSS) – 28th min.
Jamal Croal (CWSS) – 43rd min.
