St. Mark’s were left in a world of hurt yesterday when the BICO/National Sports Council Primary Schools Football Competition continued. Playing at King George V Park in a rescheduled Zone 8 game, the St. Mark’s lads were destroyed by St. Luke’s Brighton, nine goals to nothing. The two-man demolition crew of Laquon Roach (5) and Xavier Webster were responsible for all the damage. Playing in another game, Dequon Toppin was the lone goal-scorer for St. Philip Primary as they fed St. Mark’s their second loss for the day.
Hilda Skeene were also big winners on the day as they easily dispatched Gordon Walters at the same venue. With the losing side not getting a single goal, Shakeri Blades (2), Kadari Webster (1), Rison Garrett (1) and Pierre Crawford (1) brought up the five-nil result. Reynold Weekes also had a flawless win over St. Martin’s Mangrove after a goal each from Richem Atherley and Jathaniel Brathwaite. Blackman and Gollop were also two-nil winners over Bayley’s with goals from Akiel Wade and Nathan Sealy.
Over on the East of the island in Zone 3, 2014 champions Grantley Prescod turned in a six-nil win over Holy Innocents. Jevonté Harewood was good for a hat-trick and Christian St. Hill for a brace, while the other goal came from Kamal Bryan. A Dacosta Edwards also rocked the nets several times to waltz away with a six-one win from St. Bernard’s at Shorey Village. Shaquon Brathwaite hit home the consolation for St. Bernard’s, but braces from Kydaine Howell and Benlee Sealy and a goal each from Kori Sealy and Thierry Bradshaw brought up the total. Hillaby Turner’s Hall and St. Joseph played the other game of the triple-header at Shorey Village and the former took a one-nil win.
The woes continue for St. Ambrose in Zone 4 as they were held to a five-nil loss in their second game of the season. After losing eight-nil to Luther Thorne in their first game, St. Giles ensured that the top of the competition would be tough for them. Two goals each from Revera Cottley and Shawn Jack, plus a single from Sachen Marshall got St. Giles off the mark for their first win. George Lamming picked up another three points after beating St. Paul’s, one-nil with a shot from Azari Roach. Belmont were also one-nil winners over People’s Cathedral, compliments a goal from Meshach Beckles. Wilkie Cumberbatch are still waiting for that elusive, three games in. They picked up yet another draw after a goalless clash with Luther Thorne. St. Cyprian’s winning streak was cut short and they broke even with Charles F. Broome, one goal apiece. After Ethan Taylor put Charles F. Broome in control, an own-goal levelled things out again.
Zone 6 kicked back up with games at the National Stadium and Passage Road. At the latter, St. Mary’s Primary scored three unanswered goals against Eagle Primary, who are yet to win a game. Ashanni Maycock opened the scoring while Amari Burke struck twice. A goal each from Keshawn Smith (Westbury) and Tashawn Weekes (Deacon’s) saw the sides picking up a point each when they played at Passage Road. At the Waterford facility, Eden Lodge blanked Lawrence T Gay, three-nil. Terell Reece scored twice while the third came from Jayden Bushell. The other game saw Trinity Academy and Grazettes played to a goalless draw.
Trents saw a rescheduled Zone 2 game and West Terrace took a one-nil win over St. Silas Primary through a goal from Tyrik Odle. Two goals from Nicholas Hoyte sealed the deal fro St. George Primary as they took out Hill Top at Ellerton in a Zone 5 encounter.
