Santos strikes to sink ASPS!

ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Two goals from Cedar School's Alejandro Santos finally broke the resistance of Althea Scatliffe U12's and set his team on its way to a 3-0 win as the BDO Primary School League continued last weekend.

During the first half of the game played on the field shared between Enid Scatliffe and Althea Scatliffe Schools, ASPS had held their opponents at bay, working hard as a team to defend and then breaking with speed mainly through young "Snoochie" Butler.

Despite the first half heroics from the home side, the larger Cedar School players were  finally able to unlock the ASPS defense 4 minutes into the second period when the predatory Santos fired home a powerful left footer that the keeper couldn't hold.

Just two minutes later, Santos doubled the lead with another rocket drive with his left foot and Luca Reich put some sugar on the score line with a third goal on the stroke of the final whistle.

Santos was named Player of the game for Cedar whilst Jhylah Williams took the honour for ASPS.

Earlier during the week, the Under 7's took centre stage with several key matches between rival schools.

Althea Scatliffe set the tone with a 7-0 rout of Bregado Flax largely thanks to a hat trick from Shammah Peters. His goals came in the 14th, 24th and 27th minutes after Deandre Rogers had opened the scoring in the 2nd minute. Sherwood Charles made it 2-0 in the 8th minute and Rogers sandwiched his second goal in between the three from MVP Peters.

Daniel Scott was named player of the game for BFEC.

Cedar U7's then beat Cornerstone from Virgin Gorda 4-0 on a pair of goals from Alex Fountain. Azarni Callwood opened the scoring in the 1st minute, Fountain made it 2-0 in the 3rd and then Ryan Lettsome made it 3 in the 14th minute before MVP Fountain rounded out the scoring with Cedar's 4th and his second in the 19th minute.

Leonora Delville and ASPS drew nil-nil as did Enid Scatliffe Maroons and their Green name sakes. The Maroons had been awarded the points from their match up with Enis Adams after EAPS failed to have a team ready at game time.

In the big local derby, Enid Scatliffe reds overcame Althea Scatliffe 1-0, thanks to a own goal. Haleem Jacobs and Ajani Malone were named as players of the game respectively.
