Tutorial Secondary edges North Georgetown 5-4

Tutorial Secondary edged arch-rivals North Georgetown Secondary 5-4 when the male section of the Guyana Sports Development Foundation (GSDF) Pepsi/Scotia Bank tourney continued at the Ministry of Education ground, Carifesta Avenue yesterday.

Kevon Roach opened the scoring for Tutorial Secondary in the 12th minute with a clinical finish to the left hand side of the net from inside the penalty box, after dribbling his marker outside the centre of the field.

North Georgetown would level the scores six minutes later as Joshua Ferreira netted with a powerful strike to the right hand corner, after being in a one-on-one situation with the opposing custodian within the centre of the penalty area.

Steve Stanton would push Tutorial Secondary back into the lead in the 25th minute with a left footed strike down the middle of the goal, following a one-on-one inside the penalty area with the keeper.

The score line would balloon to 3-1 three minutes later as Roach netted his double, powering his left sided header into the back of the net, after latching onto a right sided corner kick.

North Georgetown would cut the deficit to one in the 54th minute through a right footed Osafa Matthews strike to the lower right hand corner of the net, after cutting into the centre of the box, from the left side of the field.

The equaliser would be found one minute later as Rueben Miller netted, lashing his right footed shot into the roof of the goal, after pouncing on an initial Matthews strike that came cannoning off the right upright.

However Tutorial Secondary would retake the lead under comical circumstances in the 58th minute as a tame Zion Gray effort from the centre of the field, went straight through the hands of the opposing keeper.

They would double their lead two minutes later as Roach sealed his hat trick with a powerfully struck right footed effort down the middle of the goal, after racing into the centre of the area from the left side of the field.

North Georgetown would pull one back before the conclusion of the matchup as Nehemiah Gomes netted in the 65th minute, placing his right footed attempt down the middle of the goal from the right side of the box.

In the second matchup in the same division, Queens College blanked Christ Church Secondary by a 2-0 score line.

Michael Hunter found the opener for the Camp Road unit in the 11th minute with a powerfully struck right footed shot into the roof of the net, after collecting a left sided pass within the centre of the penalty area.

The win would be sealed in the 63rd minute of the second period as Clarence Baird found the back of the net with a simple finish down the middle of the goal, following a one-on-one situation with the opposing keeper inside the area.
