Who could stop the tournament’s leading goalscorer Bevney Mark is the reverberating inquiry among knowledgeable pundits who’ve witnessed his astounding performances in the Petra Organisation / Courts Pee Wee Schools Football Tournament which returns to Thirst park ground this Saturday for semi-final action.
Mark, who plays for unbeaten St. Pius, has been in prolific form since the tournament kicked off and has literally carried his team on his back, producing some sizzling performances in every match to date.
The skilful ball weaver who seems to have a good future ahead of him should he be encouraged and nurtured properly will once again look to lead his team to the championship round in their clash against East La Penitence who though they’ve not looked on par with some of the other teams appears to possess admirable fighting qualities.
But, how they will manage to repress the in-form Mark is anybody’s guess since many before them have tried, but failed to produce the answers.
Mark is anticipated to have support from the likes of Marcus Wilson and Kamacy Davis, two players who’ve already shown that they are capable of turning out match winning performances as well.
East La Penitence on the other hand, has so far mainly depended on Leroy Yaw, but if they are to stand a chance of knocking out the prolific St Pius unit then players such as Fabian Boters and Andre Hope will have to lend solid support to Yaw.
The other semi-final pits last year beaten finalist Tucville versus West Ruimveldt and this encounter must start as the feature clash of the day.
Tucville uncharacteristically have not looked as sharp as last year and that could be due to the exodus of a few players, but on the whole, they’ve appeared lacklustre until the quarter-finals and this could be a sign of them peaking at the right time.
They were in sublime form against Enterprise, a team that was touted to provide them with a stern test, but as it turned out they were dismantled with consummate ease and that is ominous for West Ruimveldt.
De Andre Linton fired in a treble, while Colwin Best looked deadly as well and this duo will definitely pose a threat for their opponent. Then when you add Rayheim Marques to the equation then you have a very potent strike force so it will be interesting to see how West Ruimveldt backline is able to cope with such a lethal frontline.
West Ruimveldt’s strength is their determination and this is a valuable asset that comes into play in close encounters which is what many are predicting it to be.
Having established that determination is their strength, West Ruimveldt is no slouch either and the Michael Oie led offence that also includes Ryan James, Dante Sookram and Justin Persaud, if they combine as they had done in previous matches could make it a long afternoon for Tucville.
What is certain is that both games will showcase the abundant talent that reside at this level and scouts and coaches as advised to be there to watch a special treat on Saturday.
