-more matches scheduled for today
Leonora Technical Institute (LTI) inflicted a crushing 9-2 thrashing on Professional Learning Institute (PLI) as play in this year’s Digicel Nationwide Schools Football Championship continued yesterday, at the Leonora
Track & Field facility, West Coast Demerara.
Playing in the lone encounter of the day, the lads from LTI rebounded from an early two-goal deficit to hammer seven-man PLI and book a place in the next round.
Early goals from Ackeem Douglas and Keanu Lawrence in the 12th and 18th minutes respectively appeared as though the shorthanded PLI unit would pull off the unlikely, but that was not to be as LTI fired back with two quick goals to level the proceedings just before the half.
The final period was a riot as LTI hit in seven more goals to secure a lop-sided win.
Dometri Osbourne, Adrain Adelph and Sebastian Van Sluytman each booted in a brace.
Osbourne’s goals came in the 46th and 67th minutes, while Adelph’s was registered in the 60th and 73rd minutes and Van Sluytman netted in the 37th and 74th minutes.
Rounding out the score-line were Stephen Baynes, Reon Wright and Ej Mars, who netted in the 38th, 77th and 79th minutes respectively.
