Despite the controversy that threatened to sully the image of the third day of competition in the 4th Annual Milo Schools Under-20 Schools Football Competition, the three other scheduled games produced a quality brand of football
that pleased the fair-sized crowd that converged, at the Ministry of Education ground yesterday.
The disagreement came when Sir Leon Lessons was summoned by the Organisers to provide proof of its players’ eligibility in conformity with the tournament’s rules and regulations.
The representative of the academic institution and the Organisers failed to reach agreement so the game was not played.
Meanwhile, in the opening game, Richard Ishmael led by solitary strikes from Tamiel Hutson, Isaiah Jack and Closson McLaren eased past a game, but outclassed Carmel Secondary by a 3-0 margin.
In the next game that followed, School of Nations led by a brace from Lyndon Dorway beat Central High 2-0. Dorway opening the scoring after thirteen minutes when he reached on to a cross from the right side to fire past the goalkeeper.
The two teams battled intensely and the half came with School of Nations clinging to a slim 1-0 lead.
In the second period, both teams came close to scoring with Dorway’s effort landing just outside the upright, while Central’s best chance skimmed the crossbar and landed into touch.
However, Dorway eased the tension when he booted in from close range to give them a valuable 2-0 cushion which lasted until the final whistle.
In the final game of the day, Bishop’s High led by single strikes from Lloyd Anderson and Tyrese Souvenir beat South Ruimveldt 2-0.
The competition resumes today with four more matches at the same venue.
In the opening fixture, St. John’s College tackle inaugural champions St. George’s High from 11:00hrs and this will be followed by the encounter between Freeburg Secondary and Mae’s Secondary from 12:30hrs.
Queenstown Secondary then battle Tutorial Secondary at 1400hrs, before Charlestown Secondary oppose St. Rose’s High from 15:30hrs.
The winning team will cart off $500,000 and the championship trophy and that will go towards a school project, while the second, third and fourth place finishers take home $300,000, $200,000 and $100,000 respectively, also towards a project selected by the school.
