Action on the third day of the Premier Sports Promotions, Ministry of Education and
Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport Under-17 School’s Football tournament culminated yesterday at Ministry of Education ground with victories for North Ruimveldt Multilateral and Bishop’s High School.
On a wet and slippery ground, both games yesterday were played in glorious sunshine before a stand full of students, especially from Bishop’s High. And they had a rollicking time.
Bishops overpowered Queens College 6-1 while North Ruimveldt Multi dominated an outmatched Richard Ishmael Secondary 3-1 in yesterday’s encounters which both started late.
Bishops were leading 5-nil at half time which was taken after 35 minutes instead of the regular 45 minutes. This will change for the quarterfinals stage begins on Tuesday were 90 minutes games will be played.
Tyresse Sonvenir opened the account for Bishops in the first minute while Sonvenir scored again three minutes later. Romario Gonsalves scored in the 15th and 41st minutes before Joel Morrison (20th) and Imraan Khan (25th) netted the other goals for the winners. The consolation goal came off the boot of
Kevin Wills in the 42nd minute.
Multi completely dominated the smaller Richard Ishmael students even though Deashawn Jones missed a header early in the contest to leave the game scoreless at half-time.
The second stanza produced more headaches for Richard Ishmael with Matthew Harrison and the skillful Elroy George, who displayed a sensational exhibition of ‘dribbling’; weaving his magic round the opposition players, tormented the Woolford Avenue School’s defence.
It was only a matter of time when Harrison found the back of the net in 37th minute and repeated the effort in 40th minute, only this time there was some indication that it was a ‘Hand ball’ but the Referee missed the infringement and the score-line remained 2-nil.
Nine minutes later, Closson McLavery retaliated with a goal against the run of play to narrow the gap in the lead. However, Deashawn Jones sealed the issue a minute before full time.
Meanwhile, in the second match on Thursday which started over an hour late due to the late arrival of the Lodge Secondary school, North Georgetown who had already been awarded a walk over agreed to play the match and were hammered 6-nil with Ryan Hackett scoring thrice, Kevin Boter netting twice and Semion Hackett once in a clinical performance.
The competition takes a break for the weekend before resuming on Monday with the final round of preliminary games between St Mary’s Secondary and Christ Church and Queenstown Secondary and St John’s Secondary respectively.
The Quarter-finals will be played on Tuesday and Wednesday before the Semi-finals are contested on Friday. The final and third place play-off is set for next Sunday.
