FC SANTA Rosa claimed the Republic Bank National Youth League Under-15 title on Saturday with a 2-0 victory over RSSR in the final played at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Mucurapo.
Goals from Malachai Daniel (a rocket from an angle after he ran on to a through pass from Isaiah Richardson in the 33rd minute) and Jevaughn Benjamin (a long range shot from 40 yards in the 56th) saw Rosa home.
Santa Rosa’s Under- 13 team lost a hard fought final 4-3 to Central FC, all the goals coming from Jashawn Thomas, who took his season tally to 15 in both Under-13 and Under-15 combined.
Thomas found the back of the net in the 21st, 28th and 31st minutes for Santa Rosa.
But Central FC were indebted to Abdul- Quddos Hypolite (17th and 34th), Ocean Lindsay (54th) and Du’Shaun Augustus (69th) as they secured the Under-13 crown.
And, in the Under- 11 division, Queen’s Park needed kicks from the penalty spot to edge San Juan Jabloteh 5-4, after the scores were locked at 2-2 at the end of regulation time. Mikey Chaves (25th) and Steven Griffith (39th) were the goal-getters for the Parkites, while Lindell Sween (eighth and 30th) replied for Jabloteh.
