A commanding 6-0 triumph against YMCA Old Fort Hockey Club (OFHC) was more than enough to see Saints retake the top spot in the Bounty Paper Towel –Quicker Picker Upper – Second Division Outdoor Development Women’s League yesterday afternoon.
Playing at the Saint Stanislaus College (SSC) ground on Carifesta Avenue, forgiving cloud cover coupled with the cool sea breeze granted the players and supporters respite from the ruthless heat wave in the city during recent weeks. Saints’ skipper, Tekeisha DeLeon slapped home a hat-trick of field goals (FG) to set the tone for the win that sent the women in gray top of the points table with 12 points.
Charlia Web, Sueann Fraser and Clayza Bobb each netted once in the win for Saints.
Meanwhile, under-20 action saw Bingo Georgetown Cricket Club (GCC) Spartans get back into action after missing play in the first round due to the core of their team being part of the victorious squads under-16 and under-21 squads in the Paragon hockey tournament in Trinidad & Tobago. The Spartans picked up where they left off and spanked their GCC Her-ricanes for 5 unanswered field goals.
Kirsten Gomes and Haley Carpenter both notched braces while Madison Fernandes added the fifth to help maintain the Spartans unbeaten record in the Solo drink sponsored outdoor development league.
In other results, YMCA OFHC Ballerz beat OFHC Generals 6-0, Saints Hockey Club (SHC) Samurai edged SHC Storm 2-1, OFHC Generals needled SHC Storm through a Simeon Moore FG and GCC The Sequel continued to tear apart their opponents with a commanding 6-1 win over the OFHC Aces in the men’s second division.
Outdoor hockey continues this afternoon at the SSC ground with six matches beginning at 15:00hrs. (Calvin Chapman story and photos)
