Milton Lynch opened the scoring through striker Zakwon Jones who received a pass from Omari Chase and volleyed a right-footed shot into the back of the nets. Jones really came to the party when he added goal number two to his name in the first half. His powerful attempt at goal hit
St Christopher’s Akeil Forde on the leg and ricocheted into the goal bars.

St Christopher managed to sneak a goal before the first-half ended when their captain Chea Bynoe passed the ball to right-wing Jaheim Harris who scored to make the score 2-1 approaching the break. Milton Lynch went on the attack at the start of the second-half and St Christopher’s defenders were kept busy preventing Milton Lynch strikers from scoring.

However, on the counter-attack St Christopher managed to equalize. Midfielder Akeil Forde sent a through ball from the right of the field to midfielder Malique Jones whose right-foot volley flashed past Milton Lynch’s goalkeeper, Jakeem Forde. With the game deadlocked, both teams were hungry for a goal to reclaim the advantage and it was Milton Lynch who would take the lead once more in the dying stages of the game.

Right wing Rashon Marshall passed the ball to Jadyn Neil who in turn relayed it to midfielder Tyrell Waldron whose spectacular bicycle kick found the back of the nets to make the score 3-2. Earlier St Gabriel’s won 3-1 over Arthur Smith Primary.
