– semi-finals on today
Even the soft conditions underfoot caused by overnight and early morning rain, could not
stop the rampaging Enterprise from inflicting a 3-0 drubbing of Tucville as quarter-final action in the Ministry of Health/Health 2000Inc/Ministry of Education/Ansa McAl Girls Schools Football Competition concluded yesterday, at the Ministry of Education ground.
Once again, it was the dynamic duo of Allianna George and Aliyah Elaine who led them to victory and ensured that they remain unbeaten so far in the tournament.
They now join Stella Maris, St. Stephen’s and West Ruimveldt, the other teams into the semi-finals which will be played today at the same venue.
Earlier in the day, St. Margaret’s gained a walk over from Smith’s Memorial, a no-show for their Plate contest, while St. Pius defeated East La Penitence 2-0 in another Plate encounter with Britney Sampson netting a brace in the 2nd and 19th minutes.
In the first quarterfinal, Stella Maris and North Georgetown played to a nil all draw sending their encounter into a penalty shootout which the former won 5-4.
Previously unbeaten F. E Pollard then went down 3-4 in sudden death penalty kicks to West Ruimveldt after regulation time ended in a 1-1 stalemate.
Nikita Prince opened the scoring for West Ruimveldt in the 19th minute only to see F.E. Pollard respond two minutes later through Omifia Langellier.
St. Stephen’s through some superb goalkeeping from Naomi Kezia escaped with a 2-1 win in sudden death penalties over South Ruimveldt after regulation time failed to produce a goal.
Kezia then displayed her heroics between the uprights, saving three of the five penalty kicks to secure the win.
Enterprise then eased to a comfortable 3-0 triumph over Tucville with an own goal (3rd) setting them off after a defender inadvertently hit the ball back into her own goal.
Two minutes later, Alliana George (5th) fired in from close range, before the prolific Aliyah Alleyne (19th) entered the scoresheet to crown another good day for the team.
Today’s activities will also see schools battle for the minor positions along with the two semi-final matches.
