Noble House Goals Galore Indoor Hockey Championships…
GCC and the PEPSI Hikers battled to a thrilling 3-3 draw in the senior division of the annual Noble House Goals Galore Indoor Hockey Championships Tuesday evening at the National Gymnasium. National striker Jamarj Assanah showed
his class in just the second minute of the game with an opening goal for the Hikers. Upon launching a swift a counterattack, Assanah outwitted the trailing GCC defenders before sliding his shot through the narrowest of spaces past goalkeeper Medroy Scotland. Assanah was the creator of the Hikers second goal just one minute later as he executed a pinpoint accurate pass to a sliding Captain Robert France for the deflection goal.
GCC, enjoying a 3 goal handicap at the start, took a while to settle and the match levelled off in opportunities for the rest of the half but not before Colonel Heywood capitalised on sloppy passing by the GCC defence to evade an advancing Scotland and roll a delicate reverse push into the open goal. With scores even at the half, the Hikers were the more effective side after the break and would have pulled off the victory but for some fine goalkeeping from Scotland who appeared a different man in the nets. The draw leaves both teams unbeaten and still vying for top spot in the senior division.
Kingston Hockey (+10) surprised Saints (+6) by securing a shutout while scoring five goals of their own. Captain Dwight McCalman led the score sheet with a double for Kingston, while teammates Richard Heyliger, Wayne Warrick and Michael Hawke each scored one. The final score read 15 – 6 in favour of Kingston.
The Vikings (+5) versus Blue Steel (+7) clash that followed turned out to be an anti-climax and did not live up to expectations. With Old Fort clearly hurting from the absence of Aderemi Simon and goalkeeper Tony Cole, the Vikings could not keep pace with the youthful legs of the Blue Steel. Kareem McKenzie was lead marksman for the Blue Steel with five goals to his tally. The Steel were further bolstered by a hat-trick from Eric Hing, doubles from Keon McKenzie and Michael Craig and a single from Marcus Fiedtkou. The score at full time remained 20 – 6 in favour of Blue Steel with Chris Low being the lone marksman for the Vikings with a single goal.
The surprise of the night in the junior division came when the Old Fort Shooting Stars (+15) managed to hold off the GCC Tigers (0) to a 15-13 victory. Although the Tigers tore into the Stars defence, scoring 13 unanswered goals, the youthful Stars managed to hold on until full time to defend their 15 goal handicap. Ashley DeGroot slammed home an aggrieve 6 goals, while fellow Tigers mates Ulrica Sutherland, Tiffany Solomon and Trisha Woodroffe scored a hat-trick and a pair of doubles respectively.
Revelations (+8) managed to get the better of Saints (+6) in their matchup by 11-10. Maria Munroe scored a double for Revelations, while Kenisha Wills added a single. The Saints goals came through S. Boston with a double and M. Williams and E. Chinian both singles.
The final junior division match of the evening saw the Under 19 mix (+7) upstage the Pitbulls (+6) by 12 – 9. Deheron Wilkinson was the top scorer for the Under-19 with a four goal haul while a single was added by Robert Brumell. Rosario Ramsammy, Eon Burke and Samuel Woodroffe each scored one for the Pitbulls.
The tournament continues today, Saturday and Sunday with the finals scheduled to begin at 18:00hrs on Sunday.
