Selah on the ball
An outstanding performance by Shamario DePeiza led Selah Primary to a 5-1 victory over Boscobel Primary, as action in the BICO-sponsored National Sports Council’s Primary Schools Football Competition continued at Speightstown, St Peter today.
Selah wasted no time getting on the score sheet when striker Tyrel Greaves ran on to a pass from the mid-field and placed it to the right of Boscobel goalkeeper Jaquan Mapp for an easy opening goal.
The second goal came as a result of the ball being handled in the box and Selah striker Hakeem Sobers making no mistake from the penalty spot.
The pressure was on for Boscobel to try and pull things back, but they failed to mark the Selah players, especially the strikers. Giovonte DePeiza was left open on the right corner of the field and he took the opportunity to take a shot which curved out of the reach of the custodian and went into
the far corner of the goal bars.
Selah continued to dominate the first-half which ended at 3-0 and Boscobel’s misery would continue after the resumption.
After the break the boys in grey and blue went on the attack once again and this time it was DePeiza once again who would make the score 4-0. He received an assist from Greaves and neatly placed the ball right of Boscobel’s goalkeeper, who appeared a bit lackadaisical in his effort
to get to the ball.
Boscobel did have something to smile about when they managed to score a goal through Sage Agard. However, DePeiza would add goal number two to his name when he took a pass from Dejuan Toppin and fired home the fifth goal.
St Lucy Primary played well enough for a 1-0 win against Half Moon Fort Primary in a game also played at Speightstown. When the first half ended the score was 0-0. But St Lucy took the lead in the second half when midfielder Jahriel Springer received a precise pass from teammate Jamaly Nelly and booted the ball into the back of the nets.
