Brickdam Secondary beats Central High 7-0

Digicel national u-18 knockout football championship

Brickdam Secondary swamped Central High by a 7-0 score line when the fourth annual Digicel national u-18 knockout football championship continued yesterday at the Ministry of Education ground.

Dominic Barber opened the scoring for the winners in the 13th minute, deflecting the ball into the back of the net with his new form inside the left side of the area, after latching onto a right-sided corner kick which came cannoning off the crossbar and into his path.

It would become 2-0 seven minutes later when Malachi Adonis netted, compliments of a 26-yard right-footed lobbed shot into the back of the net from the centre of the field, after spotting the keeper off his goal-line. He would seal his double in the 36th minute, smashing his right- footed effort down the middle of the goal from within the right side of the penalty area. Denilson Rose would make the scores 4-0 in the 47th minute through a powerful 24-yard right-footed attempt into the left-hand corner of the goal, after collecting the ball within the centre of the park. An own goal in the 57th minute would further compound the lopsided encounter as the score line swelled to 5-0. Adonis completed his hat trick in the 75th minute, placing his right-footed shot into the lower left-hand corner of the net, after racing into the right-hand side of the penalty box. The win would then be sealed four minutes later when Daren Marks netted through a penalty kick conversion.
