Youngsters show skills
St. Giles Primary’s Ishean Ellis continued his impressive showing today with a hat-trick in his team’s 4-2 victory over Belmont Primary at Blenheim, St. Michael as action continued in the Bico-sponsored National Sports Council’s Primary Schools Football Championship at venues across the island.†
Ellis was a constant threat to Belmont Primary and was urged on by spectators every time he touched the ball. Also netting for the winners was Demar Maloney. Netting for Belmont Primary were Veron Ifill and Theron Edwards.
Though they emerged as the losing team, Belmont Primary were not embarrassed, frequently threatening to score against the St. Giles’ custodian Jamario Nicholls.†
