West Ruimveldt into Pee Wee quarter-finals
By Treiston Joseph
West Ruimveldt Primary School went on a scoring expedition, defeating Den Amstel 7-1 on Saturday to qualify for the quarter-finals of the Courts Pee Wee Under-11 football tournament at Thirst Park ground.
West Ruimveldt had their easiest match of the tournament and the team look impressive with their attacking style of play with Ian Daniels leading the way with a quartet in the third, 15th, 16th and 19th minutes of the match. Scyon Sampson also chipped in with a double in the 21st and 39th minutes, while Jonathan Andries had a solo effort in the 31st minute.
Keishan Humphrey scored a consolation effort for Den Amstel in the 24th minute of the game. Enterprise Primary also looked good in their Round-of-16 match with a 3-0 win over St. Ambrose Primary.
St. Ambrose had a tough game and never really showed the ability to score as Enterprise capitalised on St. Ambrose’s lack of play making to advance in the tournament. Shamar Richardson led the way for Enterprise with a double in the 18th and 37th minutes, while Mark Eastman had a solo effort in the 25th minute.
Marian Academy was also in the winner’s row with a 1-0 win over F.E Pollard Primary School with Chad Henry sticking a goal in on the stroke of full-time to win the match with a brilliant shot.
Meanwhile, Sophia Primary looked like championship material with a 4-0 win over Tucville Primary School who are no slouches.
Sophia played fearless football and attacked the wall-like defence of Tucville relentlessly and Lenord King was in form with a hat-trick in the eighth, 15th and 35th minutes, while David Weeks scored his lone goal in the 29th minute.
However, former champs Stella Maris Primary are looking for their second title and made another stride towards that goal with a 2-1 win over South Ruimveldt Primary.
Fedel Norville with his two goals in 27th and 32nd minutes has now scored seven out of the eight goals Stella Maris have registered in the entire tournament. Nashawn Bristol scored for South in the 19th minute of the match.
In other results: Redeemer Primary topped Parafaite Primary 2-1, St. Agnes defeated Goed Fortune 2-0, and School of the Nations topped Mae’s Primary 3-2 on penalties after a 2-2 draw. The tournament will continue on Saturday with quarter-final matches at the same venue.
