Saints Hockey Club (SHC) and Pizza Hut GCC both continued their unbeaten run in the Bounty Paper Towels women’s second division league Sunday at the Saint Stanislaus ground on CARIFESTA Avenue with victories over the Woodpecker Hikers and Old Fort respectively.
Meanwhile, in the men’s division, Sequel caught up with pool leaders Old Fort with a good win against Hikers Cadets, while Bounty GCC edged SHC.
SHC women are improving every time they take the field and the Woodpecker Hikers would have recognized they were in for a tough afternoon from the opening whistle. Four minutes into the match, young speedster Charlia Webb outpaced the Hikers defence to score her team’s first goal. Former national striker Tekeisha Deleon added a second with a powerful strike in the 13th minute to give Saints a comfortable 2-0 lead at the half.
With Saints continuing to exact pressure on the Hikers and capitalizing on their superior speed, Webb slammed home a second in the 28th minute to take the Saints lead to 3-0 for the win.
Team Captain Carina Moller was all business in the other ladies match of the afternoon and although the GCC ladies enjoyed the majority of possession, junior national Tamala Glenn made several runs up the right wing for Old Fort but failed to penetrate the scoring circle. Moller proved a menace for the Old Fort defence throughout the match with good support from young Sarah Klautky and Makeda Harding in midfield. And, after receiving a pass from the right to smash her shot past the Old Fort goalkeeper in the 13th minute, it was Moller again to seal the deal with her second goal three minutes from full time.
That 2-0 victory maintains Pizza Hut GCC’s position at the top of the ladies division.
Sequel seemed to be cruising to victory in their men’s clash with Hikers Cadets as striker Philip Fernandes fired them to a 2-0 lead after the first half. However, five minutes into the second half, young Cadet Shomere Garnett capitalized on a defence error to slide his shot into an open Sequel goal. Sequel midfielder Alan Fernandes responded immediately with a solo run through the entire Hikers defence to score and maintain the two-goal margin for his side.
GCC created the majority of chances in the match but their wayward shots produced no further goals as Colonel Heywood managed to score the game’s final goal four minutes from the end to move the score to 3-2 in favour of Sequel.
In the second men’s match, Bounty GCC managed to squeeze past the experienced Senior Saints by a 2-1 margin. GCC scored first through captain Kareem McKenzie but Taise Seepaul evened the score at 1-1 four minutes later. The deciding goal came three minutes after halftime through a Lennox Carrol field goal to give GCC the 2-1 win.
In the men’s division, Old Fort is now tied with Sequel on 12 points each. Saints U19s and Bounty GCC follow with six points each, while the Hikers Cadets and Senior Saints are yet to secure points.
In the ladies’ competition Pizza Hut GCC lead the table with 7 points, while Saints hold second position with 4 points. The Bingo Spartans have 3 points while Old Fort and Woodpecker Hikers bring up the rear with 1 point each.
Matches continue every weekend at Saints ground until May 20th.
