Newcomers 'Diego' snap 'Tigers' win streak
St Anthony's College's win streak ended at 20 yesterday when they were held 0-0 by Diego Martin North Secondary at Diego Martin in BG T&T Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) North Zone action.
The "Tigers", who ended last season with a perfect 19 wins from as many matches, got only two matches into 2012 before losing points to the North Zone debutants.
East Mucurapo Secondary, though, failed to take advantage of St Anthony's slip-up, as they had to come from behind twice to avoid defeat to Trinity College at Moka.
In the South Zone, St Benedict's College also had their winning start to the season ruined as they were beaten 2-1 by Naparima College. "Naps" had goals by Johlanne Beckles and Adan Noel in the first half, while in-form St Benedict's attacking midfielder Yaseu Rougier hit back from the penalty spot.
East Zone action saw the Trinity College East clash with St Augustine Secondary postponed, but El Dorado East Secondary and Arima North Secondary had big wins.
Arima hammered Toco Secondary 6-0 at Toco, and El Dorado East welcomed their neighbours and newcomers El Dorado West Secondary with a 4-2 beating.
