Pentecostal upset Signal Hill in Tobago Zone
Pentecostal Light and Life High shocked Signal Hill Secondary, beating the former national champions by a slender 1-0 scoreline as action continued in the Tobago Zone of the BGTT Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) on Wednesday.
Playing at Signal Hill, Pentecostal captain Kareem Phillips scored in the sixth minute of the second half to give his team their first ever victory over Signal Hill.
Petite striker Akeil Frank led the attack for Signal Hill, but both sides took some time to settle in the first half. Phillips, Simba George and Shakeem Irvine created opportunities for Pentecostal.
After the break, both teams came out of the dressing room pushing for a goal. Pentecostal were rewarded for their efforts, Phillip tapping in a high cross from the right side over the head of the advancing goalkeeper, Njerie Fermin.
Pentecostal pushed for a second goal, Hakeem Baynes, George and Phillip pressuring the Signal Hill defence. But the visitors eventually opted to defend the slender lead, Andel Francis taking control of their defence.
Signal Hill pushed their entire team into attack in pursuit of the equaliser, but Francis and the towering Marcus Felix kept them at bay.
The Bertille St Clair-coached Signal Hill pressured Pentecostal. Frank and captain Shaquille Smith teamed up with Daniel Greig and Shaquille Archer, but they could not convert their chances.
Pentecostal, meanwhile, had several opportunities to double the lead on the counter-attack, but poor finishing denied them.
