FC Santa Rosa triumphed in the Under-17 and Under-15 Divisions as the National Youth Football League ended with a triple-header, at the Marvin Lee Stadium, Macoya on Sunday.
Santa Rosa spanked Club Sando 4-1 in the Under-17 final – David Lezama netted an early double (11th and 19th) before Tevin Monix halved the deficit in the 59th.
But Lezama completed his treble in the 82nd and Dyjon Dabreo sealed the deal in the 90th. In the Under-15 final against Moruga, Santa Rosa fell behind in the 16th through a strike from Anderson Toussaint but Trey Hanley responded with a hat-trick for Santa Rosa (27th, 28th and 38th).
Tishawn De Leon reduced the deficit to 3-2 in the 66th but it was a little too late for Moruga. Tunapuna Titans got items from Siephan Ealie (11th) and Ronaldo Beckles (28th) to edge Cap Off Youths 2-1 – Raheem Collins pulled one back for Cap Off in the 55th. A trio of third-placed games was contested at the aforementioned Macoya venue on Saturday.
Nineteen seventy-six FC Phoenix took bronze in the Under-17s as hosts Joe Public defaulted, while Stokely Vale whipped Club Sando 3-0 in the Under-15s, with Devon Stewart notching a hat-trick (29th, 64th and 65th).
And, in the Under-13 section, FC Santa Rosa cruised past St Clair Coaching School 4-1. Isaiah Lee got a pair for Santa Rosa (52nd and 57th), while John-Paul Rochford (fifth) and Tyrese Sampson (24th) chipped in with one apiece. Akiel Holford was the lone goal-getter for St Clair, in the 51st.
