Pres cops Big-Five title, St Augustine takes girls’ equivalent.
By Andrew Gioannetti (Guardian).


A disputable own goal from reliable St Mary’s College goalkeeper Christian Attong moments left in regulation time, determined the outcome of what was an evenly contested BGTT First Citizens Secondary Schools Football League Big-Five final, which went in the way of a 2-1 victory for Presentation College of San Fernando, yesterday.
 
The Lions of South, which lost the Big-Five final last year, made their efforts count on this occasion but it came to the despair of St Mary’s College, which saw four members of its coaching and managerial staff sent off for protesting what looked like a ghost goal.

The second match of a double-header at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Couva, followed a less intense but classy 1-0 win for St Augustine Secondary over Bishop’s High of Tobago, through a goal from Naiomee Guerra.
 
The second match, which too was of high quality for the most part, closed in less desirable fashion.

The Saints custodian, Attong, whose handling of the ball had been almost flawless throughout the course of the match, was on the receiving end of a barge by Presentation College of San Fernando forward Shackiel Henry close to the goal-line, with roughly five minutes remaining in the fixture, and while no appeals were seen from the Presentation College players for a goal as Attong seemed to be on his line, the referee took a look across to his assistant, who instead of awarding Attong a foul, judged the event as an own-goal.

The match took a halt as officials of St Mary’s College protested in unison, questioning both the referee and his assistant. They, including a furious head coach Jason Edwards and assistant Ryan Shim, were sent to the stands.

The end of the fixture brought jubilation to the hundreds of Presentation supporters, but it also brought a flock of players and football staff of St Mary’s to the faces of the referees, prompting police action. One police officer pulled out a baton, while a St Mary’s player questioned the official.

The sour incident did injustice to what was a keen contest played between the two schools. Neither team outclassed the other. Even as Presentation opened the scoring with a deserved goal in the 47th minute from a headed effort by Jared Gordon from close range, St Mary’s never lost confidence.

The Saints responded in the 58th minute from a penalty from Rashad Hyacinth, after Pres defender Makeem Huggins clattered into Chinua Bernard, whose back was turned to goal.
 
“Pres” enjoyed better possession during some spells of the first half, but its most influential players including Henry and midfielder Angel Williams, were not as effective as they have been throughout the season.

St Mary’s had the earliest opportunity to take the lead in the 11th minute when Bernard connected with a Sebastien Cabral headed pass but the striker’s volley in the box edged above the crossbar. However, in the 27th minute, Presentation came even closer to a goal, when a shot from the edge of the penalty box from Yohance Alexander rocked the crossbar, before Attong held onto the rebound.

Presentation had another sight on goal with an effort from Jared Gordon with 10 minutes left in the first half, but the midfielder’s shot was softened by Saints captain Myles Yorke, who brilliantly marshalled his defense throughout the encounter.

The second half brought more daring efforts from both sides, which had to settle on a thick stadium surface. The ball moved slowly and players from both teams had to play more aerial balls to create chances.

The opening two goals came from set plays, and the final goal, from a direct cross, which seemed to be safely handled by Attong. The Saints attempted to push forward once again, following the controversial incident, but it was Presentation’s day. The team won its first national league title, while CIC’s drought for the same trophy will extend to 23 years.

It is the second Big-Five match which has stirred controversy. Presentation College, was not supposed to play Carapichaima East in the semifinal which it won 3-0. The Central Zone league title was won by Chaguanas North Secondary, which received a letter the day before the Big Five semifinal stating that it was deducted nine points for the alleged fielding of ineligible players.

However, the letter was sent by the credentials committee, which does not have the jurisdiction to make a judgment. The disciplinary committee is the body required to make such a judgment. The SSFL later acknowledged its error.

Pres rule Big 5
...Final ends on a sour note as Saints protest
By Kern De Freitas (Express).


Presentation College San Fernando sent St Mary’s College marching home yesterday--without the BGT&T/First Citizens Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) “Big Five” trophy--after a 2-1 defeat of the North Zone champs.

The contest provided just what it promised: lots of action on the field, and added a bit off it as well, but “Pres” left Ato Boldon Stadium, Couva with all the smiles and the title.

Coach Jason Edwards was anything but smiling in the 85th minute when he and most of the St Mary’s technical team were ejected by referee Ruthven Harris after what turned out to be the decisive goal, once “Saints” goalkeeper Christian Attong was adjudged to have walked the ball into his net trying to avoid Pres striker Shackiel Henry’s challenge.

An infuriated Edwards returned after the final whistle to further remonstrate with Harris as he went down the tunnel under police escort.

The scene distracted no Pres fan from celebrating victory in honour of ailing Akeem Adams, a former Pres player, who suffered a massive heart attack in Hungary and also had his leg amputated to save his life.

Before the incident, the teams were locked in a fierce battle after second half goals left them locked at 1-1.

They got to that point after Presentation came roaring from the dressing room and scored the first goal of the match, fittingly from a set play.

Pres had threatened from corners and free kicks because of their height advantage, and finally succeeded when Angel Williams floated a free kick onto the head of Jared Gordon, whose nod defeated Attong on the bounce.

It sent the energy levels a notch up on the field as Pres piled on the raids, and St Mary’s were forced to withstand the onslaught.

Once they settled, the Saints were back to their bustling football, and crisp passing and movement, trying to unlock the Pres defence.

The South Zone winners obliged, Kouri Cupid bringing down Chinua Bernard in the 58th minute, before Rashad Hyacenth levelled from the spot. The see-saw duel after that threatened a tight finish, before the final twist in the match swung it Pres’s way.

The 0-0 halftime score was perhaps a fair reflection of an even first period. If anything, Pres were slightly sharper in the attacking third. But St Mary’s, true to their nature, were sound at the back.

They gave little room to Henry and Williams, the driving forces for the Presentation attack.

In terms of individual play, St Mary’s players lacked the flair of their opponents.

But the whole was definitely more than the sum of its parts, as they were well organised, an indication that Pres would have a tougher time against the Saints than their 3-0 whipping of defending Big Five champs Carapichaima East Secondary in the semis last week.

St Mary’s were steady throughout the period and warned their opponents with a blast just overbar from Bernard in the 16th, while Williams provided a fright for the Saints when he briefly slipped from the shackles of a strong defence to force Attong to punch onto the bar in the 29th with a rocket from 20 metres, before the ‘keeper pouched the rebound off Gordon.

The Saints knew they had their future in their hands when level at the break, but in one shocking late moment, fate took that away, just as Pres did the trophy.

However, in the 27th minute, Presentation came even closer to a goal, when a shot from the edge of the penalty box from Yohance Alexander rocked the crossbar, before Attong held onto the rebound.
Newsday
Presentation’s right-winger Quintal John tormented left-back Marcus Mottley for most of the game, and, in the 29th minute, he got the better of the defender before squaring the ball to Angel Williams. The midfielder saw his right-footed shot crash off the crossbar, while Henry’s follow-up effort was snapped up by Attong.

The Saints responded in the 58th minute from a penalty from Rashad Hyacinth, after Pres defender Makeem Huggins clattered into Chinua Bernard, whose back was turned to goal.
Newsday
The lead did not last long, as Hyacinth sent goalie Stephon Seepersad the wrong way from the spot, after a foul on Bernard by Kouri Cupid away from the goal.

presfootball.com
A quick free-kick taken by CIC in the 60th saw Tariq John bringing down the CIC striker, leaving the referee no choice but to point to the penalty spot. CIC calmly converted their penalty to level the scores.

Presentation had another sight on goal with an effort from Jared Gordon with 10 minutes left in the first half, but the midfielder’s shot was softened by Saints captain Myles Yorke, who brilliantly marshalled his defense throughout the encounter.
Newsday
Angel Williams, who was later adjudged as the Player of the Match, had a good effort in the 42nd, but his right-footer, from outside the penalty area, narrowly missed the target.

The team won its first national league title, while CIC’s drought for the same trophy will extend to 23 years.

This is Presentation's third National League title. It was previously won in 1986 and 1974.

That's a rough game for Bernard:- fouled by Cupid, John and Huggins at the same time! No wonder the ref gave a penalty  :rotfl:

The refereeing in this game was horrendous. Together with the goal that was to be disallowed which was crazy, the other calls in the game were questionable to say the least. A cic player would be hacked down- no foul, then 5 minutes later a cic player would be taken down easily-foul. No consistency, and it seemed as though the ref wanted to be the star of the show. He played 2 or 3 of the 5 minutes that he added on at the end of the 90, which sparked outrage at the final whistle by the CIC staff and players. The police probably dealt with it a bit rough, they were practically beating away cic players. When the ref was walking up the tunnel he had a huge smile on his face as projectiles flew at him. The important calls definitely went Presentation's way in terms of that "goal." The saints penalty was definitely a foul and they were rewarded rightfully so with a penalty. The entire saints technical staff was sent to the stands (4 of them)... why couldnt one of them keep their cool and sit down in order to calm the players down as there was still time to play. If jason edwards gets sent off, the other staff need to calm the f**k down and relax themselves.

The support from both teams was great, Presentation definitely had the more vocal support in terms of seemingly rehearsed chants which were all quite funny even as a Saints old boy. They had an answer for everything.

Sad that the ref had to ruin what was going as a good game.

From what I heard on the radio live-stream yesterday, except for the CIC penalty, Pres totally dominated most of the game from the last 10-15 mins of the first half, to the entire 2nd half.  CIC seemed lucky to not give-up 5 or 6 goals.

This was the opinions of the partisan CIC old-boys calling the game on the radio from de rumshop. 

Anyhows, PRES win!  RePRESent!!!!!   ;D

Shaka should be quiet.  He collected 4 of the best from Pres in the 1986 national intercol semis.

Anyway, congrats to the Pres team and staff.  Long overdue win.

Saw some highlights on TV6 earlier. Highlights hardly tell the story of the match, but the penalty looked a good call. For the Pres second I was not convinced that the entire ball crossed the line, but the camera angle can hardly be relied on to dispute the ref's decision. The forward definitely nudged the keeper into the goal and not after he'd entered it, like a couple guys reported here. Interestingly, neither the forward (Henry?) nor another player at the edge of the camera appealed or looked interested in what the keeper did. This also is being taken with the understanding that it proves nothing.

The coach's reaction was understandable, even if it was a good one. The police response was volatile and symptomatic of our backward police service. One in particular rushed in and initiated contact with the coach and players at a time when they were being vocal, having lost in controversial circumstances, but not threatening (at least not based on body language, who knows what he was saying). He then pushed away CIC players who were being even less demonstrative. This alone could have been enough to make an emotional situation turn violent. He then later was shown to have pulled a baton, again when none of the players were looking likely to be a physical threat. It seemed, and I obviously can't tell for certain based on what I saw, that his response was because they weren't listening to whatever it was he was saying (based on the accompanying gestures it looked like he was telling them to move away). It was like watching someone trying to put out a fire with gasoline.

At any rate, congratulations to Presentation on winning the Big 5.

Guerra does the trick for ‘Green Machine Girls’
By Kern De Freitas (Express).


Niaomee Guerra in stoppage time saw the “Green Machine Girls” of St Augustine Secondary lift the BGT&T/First Citizens Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) girls “Big Four” title yesterday.

The disappointment belonged to Bishop’s High School of Tobago, as ‘Gustine’s 1-0 triumph denied them their first national title at Ato Boldon Stadium, Couva.

This after Bishop’s threatened to take their opponents to a shootout just as in their semi-final against Fyzabad Secondary, which Bishop’s won 3-1 from the penalty spot.

The match turned out to be a keenly contested one, where more clinical finishing could have seen either team being victorious.

The best goalscoring chances came in the first half, and Bishop’s goalkeeper Nateisha Radgman came up big to keep her team in the match.

In the 20th minute, she denied St Augustine’s Laurelle Theodore a certain goal, hooking the ball away after being left for dead by her opponent, who proceeded to lob two approaching defenders.

She also kept out Guerra, who also put a shot over.

Bishop’s actually hit the net in the 26th, but Shervell Ravello was ruled offside.

In the second half, Bishop’s gun shy approach kept them from scoring as they hesitated to take shots. St Augustine fared no better with their attempts to walk into goal.

But just when the match looked destined for kicks from the penalty mark, Guerra found the magic touch, driving from open space from 25 metres out, the bounce defeating an otherwise solid Radgman.

That was all she wrote for Bishop’s, as the girls’ Big Four trophy now heads back to the East.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

...

Ah view this thing over and over and over ... kudos to the linesman for making that real-time decision. In the end we have to go with that.

I froze it @ 1:48 and 2:01 and even angled my screen sideways  ::) :rotfl: ... and concluded very little other than:

Great off the ball, off the shoulder movement from Henry

Notable game intelligence of the player who delivered the ball from the flank (who was that?)

There's no doubt Attong is at least mindful of the danger

Q: Who reffed the game? He went from 0-60 quick.

P.S. beyond a shadow of a doubt, the shadow is not what should be definitive.

The penalty was clear cut.... the "goal" to win it was a foul on the keeper

Anyway hopefully CIC win the NZ intercol and get a chance to bury Pres in the National Intercol game at the HCS with favourable conditions

I think at the end of the day football wins, although there was controversy - the fact that a game played in Trini have people talking is ah good thing. Saints will be stronger come intercol ah sure. Saw the winner on TV and it looked a bit harsh, but from the sounds of it, looks like Pres had the better of the play - like ah say just going on reports.

I listened to the game online on Monday, watched the replay last night on the online stream, and to me the referee was very fair, and called the game without favor to any one side.  The only controversy was the was the call on Pres's 2nd goal, but it was one astute call that any ref or linesman MIGHT have made in this game --- that call could have been ruled a non-incident, a foul by Henry, or a goal.  Any of those calls would have been fair, to be honest, since a case for either of all 3 scenarios could have been made.

Regardless, Pres outclassed St Marys in this game, and got a result that was indicative of their superior play.  St. Marys should be counting their lucky stars that more goals were not scored against them.

St Marys never really produced any noteworthy goalkeepers...   ;D

(Before I get the "What about Shaka Hislop, yuh a$$?" comments, please know I was just being sarcastic).

Shaka should be quiet.  He collected 4 of the best from Pres in the 1986 national intercol semis.

Anyway, congrats to the Pres team and staff.  Long overdue win.

CLICK HERE to see the video of the controversial goal.

CLICK HERE to see highlights of the other goals.

CLEAR GOAL.  The linesman made a VERY GOOD call.  The keeper was clearly in the goal before he got hit...and the hit was not a foul on the keeper, since both players had a play on the ball.   

I'm not being biased here on behalf of Pres...but this is one of the most impressive calls by a T&T football match official.

Big 5 incident a ‘major concern’
...Disciplinary committee to meet on matter
By Kern De Freitas (Express).


The disciplinary committee of the Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) will meet to decide if the League will take any action following the controversial incident during Monday’s BG T&T/First Citizens SSFL “Big Five” final between Presentation College and St Mary’s College that saw St Mary’s coaching staff expelled towards the end of the match.

The matter caused quite a stir at Ato Boldon Stadium, Couva, as a disputed goal in the 85th minute—which saw Presentation win 2-1—evoked an angry protest from St Mary’s coach Jason Edwards. He and other members of the “Saints’” technical team were ejected by referee Rodphin Harris.

The goal is still a point of contention, but reactions during the incident and after the match, primarily from the St Mary’s bench, are a “major concern” for SSFL president Anthony Creed, who is in his first season at the helm of the League.

“It is not something we are very happy with,” Creed told the Express yesterday. “We expect in a school league, discipline will be the first order of the day, and in the SSFL, the true representative of the school is the principal. There are different ways of dealing with it. There are cases before us where the principals took decisions even before the SSFL have dealt with it.”

Creed confirmed that the League has received a preliminary report from Harris, and is expecting a more detailed report from the referee as well. After the committee meets on the on-field ejections during the match, it will consider whether the League was brought into disrepute by the St Mary’s protests.

“Right now we’re waiting on the referee’s [detailed] report, then the matter goes to the disciplinary committee,” he said. “They have to deal with the ejections [in the match]. “We’ll deal with the match issue, because we can’t go into overkill. We’ll wait for the disciplinary committee to meet.”

The SSFL head also pointed out that the St Mary’s players did not receive their silver medals after the match, saying they were instructed instead to go “straight to the dressing rooms”.

“In the girls’ game, both silver and gold medals were given out and the trophy. I know emotions would have run high, but at the end of the day, the league and the schools must come first,” Creed stated. “So it’s a major concern.”

The League is also expected to get video footage of the match today, which will also be considered in the matter.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Chaguanas North put ten past ASJA Boys.
T&T Express Reports.


Chaguanas North took out their frustrations on missing out on the Central Zone League title yesterday on ASJA Boys College, whipping their opponents 10-1 in their Secondary Schools Football League’s (SSFL) Coca Cola InterCol quarter-final at Ato Boldon Stadium, as the tournament kicked off today in the Central and East Zones.

Chaguanas were named Central champions, only to be docked nine points for the use of ineligible players. But they had no problems in yesterday’s match, led by a hat-trick from David Maloney. He was assisted by Chad Paul, Jesse Frank and Deon Ogarro--who scored a brace each--as well as one item from Josiah Richards.

Vishnu Boys Hindu College took the other Central outing with a 5-4 win on kicks from the penalty mark after 90 minutes of regulation time failed to separate the teams, who were deadlocked at 2-2.

In the East Zone, neither El Dorado West nor Arima North needed a shootout to confirm their victories at Larry Gomes Stadium, Malabar. “El Do” West cruised past Valencia 4-0 after taking a 3-0 advantage to halftime, while Arima North had a harder time before prevailing 2-1 in regulation time.

Yesterday’s InterCol Results:

Central Zone

Chaguanas North 10 (Chad Paul 2, Jesse Frank 2, Deon Ogarro 2, David Maloney 3, Josiah Richards 1) vs ASJA Boys 1 (Louie Johnson [Pen])

Vishnu Boys 2 (Kevon Ramdhanie, Rajesh Seenath) v Presentation College 2 (Suraj Ramcharan, Raheem Collins)
Vishnu Boys won 5-4 on kicks from the penalty mark

East Zone

El Dorado West 4 (Keshun Seecharan 26th, Sean Bonval 32nd, Brian De Verteuil 38th, Kerdell Chairman 52nd) vs Valencia 0

Arima North 2 (Anfernee Johnson, Thomas O’Neil) vs El Dorado East 1 (Levi Walcott)

Today’s InterCol Fixtures:

Tobago Zone

Mason Hall Sec vs Bishops High School, Plymouth, 3 p.m.
Roxborough Sec vs Signal Hill Sec, Plymouth, 5 p.m.
Speyside Sec vs Goodwood Sec, Louis D’Or, 3.30 p.m.
Scarborough Sec vs Pentecostal Light and Life, Montgomery, 3.30 p.m.

North Zone

St Anthony’s College vs Malick Sec, Fatima Ground, 3.30 p.m.
East Mucurapo Sec vs Diego Martin North Sec, 3.30 p.m.

It was a harsh call...especially at that stage of the game. But harsh doesn't mean unfair. It was a goal. I only just looked at the footage and hearing all the comments before seeing it, I thought there was a big barge or push on the keeper....but there wasn't. Tough luck....and a poor decision by the keeper as well....
