Courts Pee Wee semi-finalists decided

By Iva Wharton

Tucville, Marian Academy, West Ruimveldt and North Georgetown will contest the semi-finals of the Courts-sponsored Primary Schools football competition next Saturday at the Banks DIH Limited ground, Thirst Park.

The four teams emerged victorious following the quarter-finals played yesterday at the same venue. Tucville, despite maintaining its winning streak did not do so without problems. A last minute change of the goalkeeper was protested by Redeemer’s Coach Johnny ‘Overseas’ Barnwell who said he not notified of the change.

According to Barnwell, he did not have a problem with the change per se but added that the referees had the right to notify him of the change.

Redeemer went down to Tucville 2-0 in the penalty shoot-out after the teams had battled to a 1-1 draw after regulation and extra time.

Tucville’s Teacher/Coach Ryan Belgrave, while he is happy that his team won, they could have done a better job had they not underestimated Redeemer.  Deandre Linton and Tucville’s Simeon Hackett were the goal scorers.
