Defending champions West Ruimveldt along with Redeemer, Tucville and North Georgetown Primary will be the four schools heading into the semifinals of the Smalta girls’ under 12a Peewee football tournament after yesterday’s play.
The inclement weather over the week had done damage to the Ministry of Education (MOE) ground’s playing surface, but nevertheless, the young ladies persevered to see the quarterfinal round being completed with four nail biting encounters.
North Georgetown came up against Smith Memorial in the first encounter of the day, and as the saying goes got a ‘run for their money’, before they could pull off the victory. It was Chance who played hero again for North Georgetown as she scored the team’s first goal in the 21st minute of play.
Prior to Chance’s equalizer, Smith Memorial’s Fiona Gibbs gave her team the lead when she found the back of the net in the 16th. As Smith mounted a strong defence, they managed to hold out the 1-0 score until Chance joined the scoring party.
The 1-1 score at the end of regulation time made way for an extended game, where Chance found the back for the net for a second time in the 30+1 minute.
Another close game saw Tucville Primary booking a spot in the semifinal after edging past South Ruimveldt 1-0. Tucville’s Shania Lovell scored the lone goal of the game in the 29th for her team’s victory, the battle between Redeemer and St. Stephens’ Primary finished with a similar score. Redeemer’s Leanna Hill scored in the 15th for the only and winning goal of the game.
Defending champions West Ruimveldt Primary were made to fight for their victory as Timehri held them off for the entirety of regulation and extra time. A goal off the boot of Tyanna George gave West Ruimveldt the advantage in the 8th but their hopes of an easy win were shattered when Timehri’s Rihanna Rhajcoomar leveled the scores in the 18th. Neither side could find the back of the net during extra time, and when it came down to kicks from the penalty mark, West Ruimveldt proved to be the better side, winning 4-3.
