Caps pummel Couva West
...Goals fly in Central
Ever so often, the goals come in abundance in the BG T&T/First Citizens Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL), and particularly in the Central Zone.
Yesterday was one of those days, as a merciless, unbeaten Carapichaima East Secondary pumped 20 goals past Couva West Secondary at Carapichaima’s school ground.
A goal in the first minute from Jeremy Trim was an ominous sign for Couva that a barrage would come, and a 5-0 halftime lead also told them they were in for a rough day. Just how rough they learned in the second 45-minute period, as they endured 15 more goals.
Ten of those came in the last 20 minutes, probably because the white flag was blatantly fluttering in the breeze by that time.
Justin Joseph, who also plays cricket for “Caps”, slammed in four of those in a 12-minute span, specifically in the 70th, 77th, 80th and 82nd. Simon Joseph (24th, 49th, 63rd, 83rd) would not be outdone, knocking in a beaver-trick as well.
A brace each went to Trim, Yaseem Rivas, Joshua Eneau, Larry Brown and Dareem Cox, while Darion Thomas (88th) and Shaquille St Clair (89th) had one each late on.
Chaguanas North Secondary also took advantage of their home turf, hammering newbies Vishnu Boys 14-0 in Chaguanas.
In the North Zone, St Anthony’s College kept their lead with a comfortable 3-0 win over Malick Secondary at Hasely Crawford Stadium’s training ground, but St Mary’s College kept on the “Tigers’” tail with a 2-0 win of their own over Queen’s Royal College at St Mary’s Serpentine Road, St Clair home ground. The Tigers had their fourth win in as many matches, though, and a match in hand over their closest rivals.
The other North match saw third-placed East Mucurapo lose some ground with a frustrating 0-0 draw against Diego Martin North at Fatima Ground.
Presentation College San Fernando continued their perfect run in the South, whipping St Benedict’s 3-0, while Naparima College beat Princes Town West 2-0, and Shiva Boys eased past Pleasantville Secondary 3-1.
St Augustine also continue to rule the East with a 4-0 drubbing of San Juan North Secondary, while Arima North Secondary and Trinity College East enjoyed 2-0 wins over El Dorado West Secondary and Valencia Secondary respectively.
Over in Tobago, five was the number of the day. Mason Hall Secondary and unbeaten leaders Speyside Secondary had 5-0 wins over Goodwood Secondary and Pentecostal Light and Life respectively, while Roxborough Secondary and Signal Hill Secondary shared five goals, with Roxborough prevailing 3-2.
Only Scarborough Secondary bucked that trend with a 3-0 triumph over Bishop’s High School.
