Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : November 18th 2014 Contents Speyside Secondary and Scarbor-
ough Secondary lifted the first Inter-
Col titles among the boys and girls
teams, following wins over Signal Hill
Secondary and Bishop s High, respec-
tively in the Tobago Zone finals.
In the girls contest Jahmila Edwards
and Aaliyah Charles scored first half
goals, before Njemile Charles and Jeanile
Lawrence completed another comfort-
able win, this time, 4-0 for Scarbor-
Scarborough added the biggest tro-
phy in school girls football to the league
crown it recorded in the Tobago Zone
recently. The school from Tobago s cap-
ital was also close to capturing the Big-
Four title recently as well, but the team
lost 2-0 to St Augustine Secondary.
In the second match in Tobago, Spey-
side Secondary and Signal Hill were
locked 2-2 at the half, before the former
went on a rampage to pick up the pres-
tigious title. Top scorer Brandon Ben-
jamin notched a brace for the winning
team, while Weah Adams, Quanc Frank
and Kerri McDonald got one each.
Akeil Frank and Ackel Carrington
scored in the first half for Signal Hill.
There was also action in the Central
Zone, yesterday, but at the semifinal
stage, with Chaguanas North easing
into the final with a 3-0 win over ASJA
Boys. The opening double-header
match at the Ato Boldon Stadium,
Couva, however, was less straightfor-
ward. However, in the end, Cara-
pichaima found itself in a familiar place
in the final after defeating Presentation
College of Chaguanas in a penalty
shoot-out following a 2-2 draw at full
Today, eight teams from the North

T&T Red Force import Ramnaresh Sarwan will
not make the trip to St. Kitts to face the Leewards
Islands this weekend in the second match of the
WICB Professional Cricket League (PCL).
Sarwan failed a late fitness test before the opening
game against the Barbados Pride that ended yesterday
and skipper Emrit revealed that they would continue
to look at the injury but Nicolas Pooran has been
called up as a replacement.
"Sarwan continues to struggle with his little niggle
so we have included Nicolas Pooran in the squad for
the Leewards match." Red Force with the assistance
of rain was able to draw against Barbados. Batting
first Barbados scored 360 all out and T&T replied
with 96 all out. Following-on the Red Force reached
213 for five when rain washed out most of the final
day yesterday. Speaking after the match Emrit said
:"God was on our side on the final day and we were
able to get out of trouble. It is early days but we have
already seen where we have to improve as we move
Emrit defended his decision to bat first in the
match saying :"We had them four wickets down
early and if we had bowled them out for 175 everyone
would have said it was a great decision. We had rain
the day before the match and the pitch was a bit
soft, so in that regard we did not want to bat first."
Meanwhile, Barbadian captain Kraigg Brathwaite
who scored a man of the match 182 said he was
pleased with his team s effort. "We did not get a
chance to get an outright but our guys played well.
The bowlers bowled in the right areas and the batting
of Shane Dowrich was very good." Dowrich helped
Brathwaite rescue the innings from 87 for four, scoring
76 to help take the eventual score to 360.
"As we go into the other matches we need to look
at our batting and I think our catching needs improv-
ing as well."
The Trinity Blue Hawks have now
established themselves as a formidable
force in Secondary Schools Football.
Trinity College East has won three titles
for the season thus far and is on the quest
this week to attain more.
In the East zone, they won the form one,
Under-14 and U-16 titles, sweeping the
zone lower division fixtures. The school will
contend in three finals this week of the Sec-
ondary School s Football League. Tomorrow,
the Blue Hawks will challenge San Juan
North Secondary at the Larry Gomes Sta-
dium in the East Intercol finals.
On Friday, the U-14 unit will travel to the
Hasely Crawford Stadium to contest for the
national title against St Mary s. The U-16
squad contends for the national title against
Naparima College at Naparima Grounds on
The success currently experienced at the
school has been in the making for the past
six years according to team official Aaron
Pollard. Pollard along with Principal West,
Nigel Ojagir and Ronald Nefbit have devised
a developmental plan that places emphasis
on the junior players.
This formula is now bearing fruit with
multiple titles during the season and possibly
more to come this week.
