The Christ Church East Central juggernaut continued last Friday night at the Glebe, St George, in the latest action of the David Thompson Memorial Constituency Councils Football Classic.
The defending champions had few problems in disposing of the challenge of St George North, defeating them 3-0. Keion Harding opened the scoring in the 15th minute and just before the half-time break Jabarry Chandler made it 2-0. He entered the game in lethal form having already scored seven goals in the competition and he was a threatening force throughout the game.
None of the St George North’s players could score on Christ Church East Central, so Reco Elliott did the next best thing and scored on his own goalkeeper to gift a goal to his opponents in the 62nd minute.
Also at the Glebe, Jomo Harris scored in the 8th and 87th minute as St Michael North beat Christ Church South 2-1. Trevor Mayers scored in the 76th minute for the Christ Church side.
At Briar Hall, Christ Church, St James Central brought their ‘A’ game to defeat a plucky Christ Church West unit 4-2. National player Hadan Holligan scored in the very first minute of the game to give the north side an early lead. But Kemar Smith found the equalizer in the 30th minute. And just before half-time Damon Ifill gave St James Central a 2-1 lead.
Ifill returned on the resumption to make it 3-1 in the 53rd minute and all but bury Christ Church West. But showing great spirit the Christ Church side would find a second goal in the 57th minute to make the score line 3-2. What followed was a rousing climax to the game as Christ Church West went in search of that equalizer.
But as often happens in these situations they conceded a fourth goal in the 90th minute as Jamario Worrell dashed their hopes and those of their supporters.
At the same venue it was more woes for another Christ Church team as this time West Central were beaten 3-0 by St Michael South East thanks to goals from Akeem Browne in the 12th and 42nd minutes and Mario Harte in the 83rd.
In action Saturday at Rices, St Philip, national player Tristan ‘Fishy’ Parris’ 33rd minute effort, along with goals in the 34th minute from Omari Leacock and the 42nd from Tremaine Cobham, cancelled out St John’s Romario Harewood’s 17th minute effort to give St Michael South a 3-1 win.
Christ Church East’s defenders were like deer in headlights in their match-up against St Philip South as Carlo Perry went on a rampage with four goals in their 5-2 victory over the Christ Church team.
Perry netted in the 30th, 90th and 93rd minutes, he also buried a penalty in the 70th minute. T’Shane Lorde had opened the scoring for St Philip South in the 22nd minute. Scoring for Christ Church East were Cameron Lewis in the 44th minute and Kenny Miller-Jones in the 63rd minute.
At Valery, Dwayne Mars scored in the 49th and 55th minutes to give the City of Bridgetown a 2-1 win over St Thomas for whom Kyle Burrowes scored in the 58th minute.
St James South got off to a good start at the same venue when St Michael South Central conceded a 27th minute penalty which Romario Williams netted. But that was as good as it got for the St James lads. Goals from Elsid Miggins in the 42nd minute and Walton Burrowes in the 81st, gave St Michael South Central the win.
