Four matches were contested on Sunday in the Bounty Paper Towel – Quicker Picker Upper – second division hockey league at the Saint Stanislaus College (SSC) ground on Carifesta Avenue where Saints Hockey Club (SHC) Savages won the more closely contested clash of the day.
Sunday’s play was graced with some kind cloud cover as opposed to the relentless sunshine on Saturday and skipper of SHC Savages more than enjoyed the conditions as he banged home a hat-trick to guide his team to a narrow 3-2 win over YMCA Old Fort Hockey Club (OFHC). Shaquon Favourite and Theodore Thierens got on the score sheet once each during the loss for Old Fort.
The win has kept Savages in a comfortable position in the men’s second division points standing with 17 points from seven games played. However, Georgetown Cricket Club (GCC) The Sequel has ascended to the top of the table with 19 points from eight games played after picking up convincing wins against Hikers Cadets on Saturday and Bounty GCC on Sunday.
In other results on Sunday, SHC Shockwave were spearheaded by a brace of field goals (FG) from Baraka Garnett during the team’s 4-1 win over YMCA OFHC Rusty in the Quicker Picker Upper men’s second division league. Troy Hodge (penalty corner) and Hilmar Chester (FG) each netted once during Shockwave’s win.
Hikers’ Cadets were also in the winners’ row in the men’s second division on Sunday picking up a comfortable 4-1 over YMCA OFHC Rusty after leading the first 20 minutes of play 3-0. Travis McKenzie scored a two FG while David Williams and Sherwyn Caesar each added one FG each for the winners.
In the Solo soft drink under-20 league, GCC Pitbull safely negotiated SHC Samurai 2-0 in the boys’ division. The Samurai who defeated YMCA OFHC Ballerz 2-0 on Saturday, got a taste of their own medicine, courtesy of a penalty corner (PC) from John Phang in the 7th minute and a FG from Meshach Sargeant in the 16th minute. Meanwhile, on the distaff side, Saints got a walkover against OFHC Bellas. (Calvin Chapman story and photos)
