Dimunitive Santro Springer was a constant threat today as Deacon’s Primary thumped Lawrence T. Gay 4-0 at Passage Road, St. Michael when the action in the Bico- sponsored National Sports Council’s Primary Schools Football Tournament continued across the island.
Fleet of foot and showing a lot of composure on the ball, Springer netted goals in the 16th and 28th minutes as he led the rout of the Spooners Hill, St. Michael school. Shaquon Haynes had opened the scoring in the 11th minute and substitute Zico Kirton scored the third goal in the 25th minute.
Also at Passage Road, St. Mary’s Primary beat Trinity Primary 4-0. The lad of the morning in this game was the hard-working Tyrese Fowler who constantly ran at Trinity’s shaky defence and was rewarded for his industry with the opening goal in the 4th minute and the final goal in the 38th minute. Sandwiched between those two goals were strikes by Malaki Gill in the 10th minute and Donte Trotman in the 24th.
At Speightstown, All Saints Primary went on a goal-scoring spree when they pounded Boscobel Primary 10-0. It was a busy morning for goalkeeper Ori Edwards whose defence often left him at the mercy of the All Saints’ attack with Kyle Cumberbatch, in particular, an ever present danger. Cumberbatch netted a hat-trick, while there were two goals each for Darian Clarke and Rashad Haynes, and one apiece for Desean Boyce, and substitutes Je-Dane Griffith and Tyrell Scantlebury.
The goals continued to rain at Speightstown when Ignatius Byer Primary took on Roland Edwards Primary with the latter winning 7-0. Scoring for Roland Edwards were Jaylon Gilkes with a hat-trick, Shaquanie Phillips with a brace, and Tanas Thorne and Ramon Toppin with one each.
The match-up between St. Lucy Primary and Gordon Greenidge Primary at the same ground ended in a 0-0 draw. At Greens, Shabari Lynch’s double strike gave Cuthbert Moore a 2-0 victory over St. Jude’s, while St. George Primary and St. John Primary drew 0-0 at the same location. At Rices, St. Philip, goals by Joshua Price and Delon Prescod gave Gordon Walters Primary a 2-0 victory over the hard-working St. Martin’s Mangrove youngsters.
At Blenheim, St. Michael, St. Paul’s Primary put seven goals past the People’s Cathedral’s custodian Sylvan Wade. Leading the charge for St. Paul’s was Jamani Moore who netted a beaver-trick and could have had at least two more. Also scoring were Rivaldo John Peters, Andrew Grant and Meeke Burke.
St. Angela’s Aren Spencer and Jalen Johnson each scored as their school defeated St. Winifred’s 2-0. St. Cyprian’s Zacahary Bellamy’s goal was all that separated his team from Bay Primary in another game played at Blenheim.
At Chapel, Diquone Roberts netted for St. Luke Brighton in their 1-0 win over Society Primary, while at Gall Hill, St. John. Laquon Wiggins’ goal got St. Margaret’s Primary a hard- fought 1-0 win over Workman’s Primary.
In a second game at Gall Hill, Mount Tabor’s Vance Scantlebury’s goal cancelled out Ellerton Primary’s Tyreke Holder strike in a 1-1 draw.
