Combermere beat up on Parkinson

Combermere’s football team scored their fourth straight win of the Coca-Cola sponsored Barbados Secondary Schools Football League this afternoon against hosts Parkinson Memorial.

Having drawn 2-2 against Coleridge and Parry on Monday, defeated Daryll Jordan 2-0 and trounced Graydon Sealy 5-1, Combermere were able to take care of business emphatically with an 11-0 result this afternoon in league two action.

The boys from Waterford brought a powerful team onto the field with Devonte Richards, Nathan Skeete, Andre Applewaithe and Hashim Brewster, all national Under-15 players, along with captain Rivaldo Graham, a national under-20 player.

Ramon Toppin also delivered a quality performance with a hattrick to his name.

However, it was Richards in attacking midfield who was first to shake the nets ten minutes into the match with a shot just on top the 18-yard box. It came thanks to a delicate touch from Kobia Hamblin who did well initially to take on Nathan Adams of Parkinson and then make the assist.

Tyrese Horton was impressive for Parkinson in the final third as he did well on numerous occasions to cover his young inexperienced goalkeeper, Xavier Brewster, but unfortunately, the central defender did not get the kind of support needed to keep Combermere’s attackers at bay.

Combermere went on to take a 2-0 lead as striker Zidane Clark dribbled two defenders inside out and then followed up with the right foot kill inside the left post of the goal bars.

It did not take long for the boys in blue and yellow to score their third goal of the match, as the ball lingered inside the six-yard and after a combination of passes, Maxwell Lewis had seen enough and buried it past Parkinson helpless goalkeeper Brewster.

Richard and Applewaithe both had braces to their names while Nathan Skeete and Zachary Bellamy contributed a goal each.

Combermere continue to lead the points standings in league two with ten points having played four matches, won three, and drawn one. They have scored 20 goals and conceded three for a goal difference of 17.
