Blackman and Gollop Primary’s striker Tyler Niles was his school’s hero today when he scored the lone goal of the game against Hilda Skeene Primary at King George V Memorial Park, St Philip.
That win has now taken Blackman and Gollop’s total to five games unbeaten as they continue to lead Zone eight with 15 points in the BICO-sponsored National Sports Council’s Primary Schools Football Tournament.
The goal resulted from excellent work in the middle when captain Nathan Sealy passed the ball from the right wing to Sealy who controlled it well and then took his shot from just outside the 12-yard box to end the first half on a high.
Unfortunately Hilda Skeene missed a few golden opportunities that could have brought them back into the game. That win allowed Blackman and Gollop fans to bask in the glory of what was described by National Sports Council coach Richard Forde as a pretty exciting game. Blackman and Gollop now have three more games where they will take on St Luke’s Brighton, Gordon Walters and St Phillip in their quest to advance through to the quarterfinal round.
Also in the park, Laquan Roach netted twice and Xavier Webster, once, as St Luke’s Brighton defeated Reynold Weekes 3-1. Richem Atherley scored for Reynold Weekes. Hasani Alkins’ goal was enough to get Gordon Walters a 1-0 win over St Philip Primary.
In Zone 3 action at Shorey Village, St Andrew, Jevonnte Harewood scored two goals while Shakoby Brathwaite and Kamal Bryan scored one each as Grantley Prescod defeated Hillaby Turners Hall 4-0.
