Mason Hall whips St Mary’s
Tobago girls champion Mason Hall showed why they are the champions of the sister isle when they easily defeated St George East under-15 champion St Mary Home by 4-0 in the quarterfinal round of the Atlantic Primary School Under 15 competition.
Mason Hall led 2-0 at the half and looked certain to go on to the semifinal with another two strikes in the second half. The national title looks to be staying in Tobago based on this display. Port-of-Spain Champions Carenage Girls’ Government fell to Caroni giants and former national champions Longdenville Government.
Longdenville went into the lead in the 10th minute when the Carenage custodian misjudged a shot from Abeola Abraham and watch it roll onto her net. Aaliyah Adams made it 2-0 three minutes after.
The Carenage team began to march forward and squandered away at least five chances before the half ended. In the second half it was all Carenage as they bombarded the Longdenville goall but continued to miss with Natisha Jules being the main culprit.
Jules finally got her name on the scoresheet in the 30th minutes before Abraham converted to give her team a two-goal cushion. Carenage fought on barvely but missed another five chances to walk off the field 1-3 losers.
Moruga RC atoned for their boy’s defeat by Sacred Heart Boys with a 4-0 drubbing of Penal RC while Vos Government kept up the great work form of the Victoria Schools with a polished display in dismissing Manzanilla Government 3-0. The Under 15 Boys will take to the field tomorrow at three venues over T&T.
