Mark Powell netted twice to lead Stewartville to a 5-2 victory over Windsor Forest when the Digicel National Schools’ Football Championship continued yesterday at the National Track and Field Centre, Leonora.
After a slow start to the proceedings, an own goal by Windsor Forest’s Terrence Barton handed Stewartville the lead in the 21st minute. Stewartville extended their lead two minutes later when Shane Martin shot from outside the area bounced out of the goalkeeper hands and found the back of the net.
Stewartville continued to attack Powell made it 3-0 with his first goal in the 31st minute after receiving a pass from Shane Martin on the left side of the area.
Windsor Forest hardly had a shot on goal and when they did Mario Huston shot was ruled offside as Stewartville enjoyed a healthy advantage at the break.
Judah Albert slotted home one minute into the second half as his powerful shot some distance from goal gave the keeper no chance. Windsor Forest found it difficult to keep up with Stewartville’s pace whose defence stood firm. Powell then scored his second from inside the 18-yard box in the 60th minute after Mickale Small shot rebounded off the goalkeeper.
Thomas pulled one back in the 65th after he won the ball just outside the area and beat the keeper to his right. Windsor Forest defence took some credit for not conceding further as Stewartville created several chances. While Stewartville attacked almost at will, they made some defensive errors in giving Windsor Forest some space at the back, and Thomas capitalized, scoring his second from just on the edge of the area in the 72nd, however the writing was already on the wall.
