Black Rock pulled of the biggest upset in the Tobago Football Association Premier Division knockout competition when it ousted league leaders Sidey’s FC 5-4 on penalty-kicks after a 3-3 draw in regulation-time on Sunday.
It seemed to be a routine outing for Sidey’s FC early on as it led 3-0 at the half thanks to a double from Brandon Benjamin in the first and 38th minutes with Nick Quashie also finding the target in the 16th.
However, the match turned on its head in the second-half as Kursh Ramsey (69th), Reynaldo Acosta (75th) and Jair Clarke (76th) were all on target for Black Rock to pull even at 3-3 and send the match into penalty-kicks where it prevailed 5-4 to set up a semifinal clash with Roxborough Lakers last night (Wednesday)
Lakers got a hat-trick from Jelani Turner to whip Goal City 4-1 while Golden Lan FC and Georgia FC also won to face off in the other semis.
