Bent Street sends ominous warning to rivals in Corona Futsal
Bent Street is slowly becoming the team to beat in the futsal arena, following a 13-1 win over Channel-9 Warriors on Tuesday evening in the Corona Futsal Tournament at the National Gymnasium.
The outcome represents the continuation of a rich vein of form for the side. Bent Street seemed to be on a level all by themselves as they dispatched the Warriors easily.
It was the biggest margin of victory in futsal for a while as they displayed power striking as well as brilliant team play that just seemed second to none thus far in the tournament.
Ryan ‘Bom Bom’ Hackett dropped a quartet of goals with two coming in the second minute and the others in the ninth and 12th minutes.
Job Caesar had a hat-trick in the eighth, 12th and 15th minutes, while Kelsey Benjamin had a double in the 10th and 16th minutes as the three former Chase Academy players combined for nine of the 13 goals.
Pernell Schultz (9th), Solomon Austin (4th), Andrew Murray Jr (11th) and Sheldon Profit (14th) were the other scorers in the game.
Meanwhile, Sophia pulled off a close 4-3 win against YMCA.
Desmond Cotton put Sophia up 2-0 with goals in the second and fifth minutes, after which Frank Crandon (7th) and Shavane Seaforth (8th) brought the game to level pegging at 2-2.
Dwayne Love scored in the 10th to put Sophia a goal ahead, but Seaforth equalised in the 14th for his double. However, a defensive blunder allowed Cotton to score on the stroke of full time for the win.
West Front Road topped Albouystown 3-1 in a high-paced match. Hubert Pedro was too much for Albouystown and he scored quickly with a double in the 12th and 13th minutes and even though Moses Gittens reduced the lead with a strike in the 14th, Jamal Pedro sealed the deal for West Front Road with a strike in the 16th minute.
In other results: Tucville topped Kingston 3-2, Alpha Warriors drew 3-3 with Show Stoppers and Back Circle and Leopold Street drew 5-5. The tournament will continue on Thursday evening (March 8) from 19:00h at the National Gymnasium.
