Walvaroo One goes all the way

From being Walvaroo One, they instantly renamed themselves “Walvaroo City”, after comprehensively defeating Top Roseau 3-0 last Sunday afternoon at the Sion Hill Playing Field to take the 2009 Sion Hill Inter Village Football competition.{{more}}

The most complete team in the competition, Walvaroo One had to endure a stern test in the first half from a more determined Top Roseau, marshalled in the midfield by former national player Randy Patrick.

However, Walvaroo One prevailed and through a combination of poor shooting and good goalkeeping by Walvaroo’s custodian Sylvester Pierre, the score remained 0-0 at the end of the first half.

The second half was a different story as Walvaroo One, buoyed by their vocal following and aided by a tired-looking Top Roseau outfit, sported a revived demeanour.

Unable to sustain the relentless pressure, Top Roseau’s porous defence gave Dorian Dallaway a half chance that he turned into a goal when he eluded his marker.

Dallaway then completed his brace when he left the Top Roseau captain Alpheus Carrington for dead, turning him inside out, and depositing him on his buttocks, then carefully slotted the ball into the back of the net, to send a posse of Walvaroo supporters charging to congratulate him.

The eventual uneven contested game was completed when the heavy set Vic Bowne made it three with just three minutes on referee Carl Dickson’s watch.

Dallaway, with 11 goals, was the top goal-scorer in the competition, while his teammate Pierre, was named the competition’s Most Outstanding Goalkeeper. Pierre received a trophy, compliments of Lincoln Prescott.

The Most Promising Player award went to Yannick Myers of Rose Valley Enterprises Hans King Bottom Roseau. Sion Hill Masters won the Cutting Edge Bar trophy for being the Most Disciplined Team. (RT)
