North Georgetown Secondary outgunned Patentia Secondary on penalties while Charlestown Secondary brushed aside Lodge Secondary 2-nil last night at the Georgetown Football Club (GFC) ground to clinch quarterfinal berths in the Chico/Kashif & Shanghai Elite Next Generation Football Tournament.

After forward, Joshua Ferrier put North Georgetown up in the 14th minute with a flat right footer to the far left corner, defender, Kenton Boyce scored the equalizer by dribbling all the way from midfield and sending a screamer from just inside the 18-yard box that eluded the opposition’s outstretched custodian.

The remainder of the scrappy game was mostly played in the midfield as both sides failed to string together passes and penetrate the opposition’s defence.

With the scores knotted at one goal apiece after 90+ minutes, the game was decided with spot kicks.

Following a marathon penalty shootout which was riddled with misses, North Georgetown Secondary prevailed 4-3, much to the delight of the pro North Georgetown crowd.

In the second fixture which was also scrappy, Shane Morris buried a penalty kick in the fifth minute after Daquan Husbands was fouled inside the box. Lodge’s problems were further compounded when Jaleel Evans padded the score from just outside the 18-yard square in the 74th minute after using some nifty footwork to elude two defenders.

In the quarterfinal round, North Georgetown Secondary will take on first runner up of the Digicel’s Nationwide School’s Tournament, Waramadong on December 21 while Charlestown Secondary will lock horns with Dolphin Secondary on the same day at GFC.

The under-17 tournament for secondary institutions continues tomorrow at the Den Amstel ground from 16:00hrs.

President’s College will tackle Stewartville Secondary, while Uitvlugt Secondary will take on Annandale Secondary two hours later.
