Today, Tuesday, November 02, 2021, is the last day of preliminary action, but already Teachers Combined, Volcanoes FC Team Two, System 3 Youth, DTVE Year Two, All Saints Medical Team Two, Volcanoes FC Team One, and Jebelle Youth have all advanced to the quarter-finals of the 2021 St. Vincent and the Grenadines Community College Invitational Six-a-Side football championship.
On the penultimate day of preliminary action on Friday, October 28, there was no separating Central Leeward Secondary and Volcanoes FC Team One, as both teams played to a 3-all draw in the first game of the afternoon.
The points were shared, as Randolph Richards, Delano Benjamin and Dillon Moore all scored for Volcanoes FC Team One, while netting for Central Leeward Secondary were Zebeon Cunningham and J’ron Quaw, with Central Leeward benefitting from an own-goal.
Meanwhile, later in the afternoon in the second match in a highly charged encounter, Volcanoes FC Team Two overcame System 3 Youths 5 – 3.
Jeovanni Enville and Jahseem James each scored a brace as they both rattled the back of the ole onion bag, while Agustus Adams put the icing on the cake with a splendid solo effort to register Volcanoes fifth.
Volcanoes FC Team Two must however pay homage to McQuin Snagg, their custodian select for the day, as he turned away a good few efforts on goal from System 3 Youth.
Chad Haynes moved his count for the competition to nine, with another goal on Friday, while a Kobe Sutherland strike, and an own-goal made up the tally for System 3 Youth.
Jebelle Youth were forced to dig deep into their personal reserves for another three points when they faced a stern test from Central Leeward Secondary.
Scores were tied a goal a piece at the half-way point, before the defending champions pulled away, with a brace by Trezine DaSouza, and a strike from the boot of Shemor Baynes, which secured the win for Jebelle Youth.
Central Leeward Secondary consolation came by way of an own-goal.
As the knock-out phase of the competition ticks nearer, the Division of Technical and Vocational Education Year Two must be counting their lucky stars when they were gifted a quarter-final spot at the expense of All Saints Medical Team One, who failed to show for their final preliminary round match on Friday. The All Saints Medical Team One were scheduled to clash with eventual group two winners, Teachers Combined.
