North Georgetown girls rocket into quarter-finals of Smalta Pee Wee
2018 runners-up North Georgetown Primary School are showing they are a force to be reckoned with after another sublime display in the Smalta Girls Pee Wee School Football tournament over the weekend at the Ministry of Education ground, Carifesta Avenue.
Their latest triumph was a 5-0 score line against Redeemer Primary, led by the prolific Martha Chance, who inflicted the damage in a brilliant solo performance. Her strikes came in the 7th, 8th, 14th, 27th and 30th minutes.
With the win, the Woolford Avenue school has topped the group, playing unbeaten in three matches, and most impressively scoring 16 goals without conceding.
Despite the loss, Redeemer still managed to qualify in second place and earn a spot in the knockout rounds.
Tuville Primary qualified from the said group, but on the basis of being the best of two third-place finishers. They ended their group matches with a comprehensive 4-0 victory over a winless F.E Pollard Primary. Goals came from Kasmin James (5th & 15th), Sherita Carmichael (29th) and Shonia Lovel (30th).
South Ruimveldt Primary and Smith’s Memorial were the top two out from Group B after their 2-2 result. Briana Elliot with a double (10th, 27th) scored for South, while Fiona Gibbs (5th) and Akyesha Abrams (15th) scored for the opposition.
Third-place qualifiers Timerhi Primary had a merry time, beating St. Margaret’s Primary 4-0 led by a hat-trick from Angel Bailey (5th ,9th and 22nd) and support from Althia Trotman (14th).
Tyanna George’s goal in the 25th minute allowed defending champions West Ruimveldt to edge Marian Academy to place in the final eight while, despite a goalless draw against Genesis Harmony Primary, St. Stephen’s Primary still managed to qualify.
The quarter-finals will be contested on Saturday from 13:00h.
