‘Green Machine’ retains East crown.
By: Nigel Simon (T&T Guardian).


St Augustine retained its East Zone title in the BG T&T Secondary Schools Football League after a 0-0 draw away to San Juan North at San Juan’s Bourg Mulatresse Ground, yesterday.

Going into the match, St Augustine dubbed the “Green Machine” led the the seven-team table with 11 points from five matches and needed only to avoid defeat against third placed San Juan (nine points) to retain its zonal supremacy.

The “Green Machine” was also without their most experienced player in Dinell Lopez who is with national Under-20 team in Venezuela competing in an invitational tournament.

But San Juan, which needed to win at all costs, failed to deliver in front of a crowd of close to 2,000 spectators.

In fact it was the visitors who did all the early running with former national Under-17 midfielder Zavion Navarro creating a few problems.

The nippy Navarro had his team’s two best effort midway through the second-half to put away the match but he failed to find the target. San Juan defender Seon Thomas also came to his team’s rescue on two occassions with goal line clearances.

At the other end of the field, San Juan’s best efforts fell to Jahfire Ellis and Stevaughn Paul within seconds of each other after St Augustine goalkeeper Kerron Jones fumbled a cross ball.

But with the goal less than six yards away the San Juan pair combined to screw up the chance which was eventually cleared.

In the dying stags, San Juan substitute Anthony Downes also had a chance to get his team the vital goal, but he fired wide of the target from close range to the dismay of his team-mates and supporters alike.

With the win, St Augustine earn a spot in the national Big-Five semifinal against South Zone champions, Naparima College on Monday at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium, Marabella from 4pm.
