Defending BGTT Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) North Zone champions St Anthony’s College opened their 2013 campaign in style with a 3-0 victory over Fatima College at St Anthony’s Ground, Westmoorings yesterday.
Kadeem Corbin, Kwesi Allen and Trevin Latapy all got onto the scoresheet for the “Tigers”, as they bounced back from a 5-4 loss against Carapichaima East Secondary for the Ormond Gabriel Cup on the opening day of the League on Thursday.
Following up from their Ormond Cup victory, Caps continued their winning ways with a 4-1 win over Tabaquite Secondary at Ato Boldon Stadium in Balmain Couva in their opening League match in the Central Zone.
Larry Brown scored a brace for the defending League champions, opening the scoring in the 45th before converting a penalty in the 59th.
Tabaquite draw level after Brown’s opening goal with Andre Gonzales’ 51st minute item, but could not beat the Carapichaima defence for the remainder of the encounter.
Aaron Kennedy and Joshua Eneau completed the scoring for Caps in the 81st and 83rd minutes respectively.
Elsewhere Queen’s Royal College edged newly-promoted Malick Secondary 2-1 at the Hasely Crawford Stadium training ground yesterday.
After a 0-0 half-time score, QRC upped the tempo in the second half with Josh Williams scoring twice. Antonio Calliste scored the lone goal for Malick.
In the East, Aaron Auguste scored a hat-trick to lead El Dorado East Secondary to a 7-0 drubbing of Valencia Secondary, while newcomers Mayaro Secondary upset Pleasantville Secondary 2-0 in the South Zone.
