Joshua Denny Memorial U20 Football Tournament…
The Joshua Denny Memorial Football Tournament commenced on Friday evening at the Ministry of Education (MoE) Ground, Carifesta Ave, with two contrasting matches that saw the finalist being decided.
In the opening game, Santos defeated Camptown Football Club by a massive 6 – 1 margin to advance while Georgetown Football Club (GFC) outplayed the Fruta Conquerors, 2 – 1.
Santos were led by a first half double from Darren Niles (15’, 23’) and reinforced for victory by a second half brace from Tyrese Dowridge (48’, 58’).
Solomon Austin and Jahiem McPherson scored in the 35th and 70th minutes, respectively, while Camptown’s lone goal was scored by Calvin Prince in the 68th minute.
The encounter that followed saw the Fruta Conquerors try to close the gap against GFC, who were comfortably ahead for the majority of the match. Ravi Coates opened the scoring in the 24th minute while Shamar Welch doubled the lead in the 59th minute.
Conquerors were only able to pull one back compliments of Antonio McArthur, who was successful in the 68th minute.
The event, which is to honour the late Joshua Denny whose life was senselessly snatched away on September 30, 2021, concludes this Friday, exactly one year after the tragedy. That finale will see Santos and GFC fight for top honours.
The tournament, hosted under the theme ‘Mothers Against Violence’, is organised by the Petra Organisation and the family of the former Camptown Football Club player. It is a tournament they wish would sensitize the public and more so the youths about working to achieve their goals instead turning to crime.
