St Cyprian’s registered a 5-1 victory over Charles F. Broome in zone four of the on-going BICO-sponsored National Sports Council’s Primary Schools Football Competition played today at Blenheim, St Michael.
Playing in green and white St Cyprian’s went up 1-0 when a corner came in from the right and landed directly in front the goal bars and Khalil Wilkinson got a touch on to the ball and into the back of the nets.
In the second half St Cyprian’s added four goals starting with Nathaniel Rudder who dribbled past three defenders and composed himself well enough to finish beautifully with a right foot shot wide of Charles F. Broome’s goalkeeper Jalen Ward.
Charles F. Broome managed to get on the scoreboard when the ball was handled by a St Cyprian’s player and Khalil Vanderpool-Nurse scored the penalty. That did not stop St Cyprian’s from applying additional pressure and they managed to earn themselves a free kick, which was wonderfully converted by Jayden Sealy to put the tally at 3-1.
Marcus Whittington also made sure he was not left out when he ran the ball down the left flank, controlled and dribbled his way past two defenders and scored from just outside the box to the delight of supporters.
Just when Charles F. Broome thought things could not get no worse they scored an own goal to give St Cyprian’s their fifth goal of the game.
