Tobago and national Under-15 Boys defending champion Bon Accord Government cruised into the semi-final of the Atlantic National Primary Schools’ Football League on Thursday afternoon to continue its win streak at the Marvin Lee Stadium in Macoya.
The perennial national U-15 champion whipped St Mary’s Government School, 4-0. The boys from the sister-isle went into the lead through Malik Wilson in the sixth minute before Demario Forde made it 2-0 in the ninth minute before Wilson doubled up in the 23rd.
At the half-time interval Bon Accord was in a commanding position at 3-0. On the resumption, Bon Accord continued to dominate and last season top striker Kyron Melville put the ‘icing on the cake’ for the reigning national champion. Wilson was adjudged as the most valuable player.
