Dames still out front Parkites slip up against Petrotrin

QPCC stumbled against Petrotrin to go under 3-0 in their Menís championship encounter Saturday evening at the National Hockey Centre in Tacarigua. The result means that the Parkites remain on 21 points from nine matches and means they eased up the pressure on leaders Notre Dame who are on 25 points from 11 matches.

Petrotrin solidified their third spot position with 19 points from 11 matches after also defeating Paradise yesterday. But in the title-affecting match Saturday, Petrotrinís national player Wayne Legerton scored a double while teammate Armelle Bowen netted another to sink the QPCC challenge.

The goals all happened within a 12 minute period in the first half when Legerton slotted home in the 21st and 27th before Bowen powered home a 33rd minute item. In one of the other Menís Championship match on Saturday , Malvern turned back Fatima 4-1.

Jordan Vieira gave Fatima a solid first half when he scored three minutes before the half for a 1-0 lead. But Malvern came out with a vengeance and rattled off four unanswered goals for the victory.

Colin Byronís 48th minute effort was followed by Anthony Marcanoís item one minute later. Tarique Marcano then netted in the 61st before Teague Marcano closed out the game with his 64th minute goal. And in the last Menís Championship match Paragon registered a 5-2 win over Paradise.

Attiah Toussaint opened the scoring for Paragon in the 14th minute before Alan Henderson neutralised that effort with one of his own in the 30th minute for a 1-1 half time scoreline. Toussaint completed his hattrick the second half with a 39th and 54th minute item intersected by his teammate Barry Clarkeís 50th minute goal. Paragonís Cogie Butler put the exclamation mark for his team with a 66th minute goal before Paradiseís Navi Roach scored a consolation n the 68th minute.

The top of the table clash in the Womenís Championship division between Shandy Carib Magnolias and Notre Dame, carded for Saturday, has been rescheduled to a date to be affixed.
