When play concluded over the weekend in the Milo/Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) schools’ football tournament being played under the theme “There is no excuse for violence”, six teams booked their quarterfinal places following round-of-16 encounters at the Ministry of Education (MOE) ground.
The biggest upset of the weekend occurred on Sunday when Linden’s Christianburg/Wismar Secondary School (CWSS) were booted from the competition by Pure Masters.
After being deadlocked at the end of regulation and then extra time in the second match of the day at the MOE, the game went to penalties, which the Linden side lost 3-4 to Pure Masters.
Omar Brewley had earlier given the Linden-based side the lead in the 41st minute but Ravon Bailey’s 69th minute strike brought Pure Masters level again before the penalties played decider.
