Paragon enjoyed a hefty payday of US2,000 as
its men s and women s teams captured the Open
Division titles in the Shandy Carib Magniolias
Indoor Hockey Tournament at the Jean Pierre Com-
plex, Mucurapo on Friday night.
In the men s decider, Paragon led by braces from "Most
Goal" award recipient and tournament "Most Valuable
Player" Akim Toussaint and Kiel Murray spanked Defence
Force 6-2 after trailining 2-0 inside the first 10 minutes.
For the "Teteron Boys"
, Nichiolas Wren and Neil Lashley
had beaten Paragon goalkeeper Jesse Thomas, the "Most
Outstanding Goalkeeper" in the third and 10th minute
for a 2-0 advantage.
However, it was Paragon from then on as Toussaint
(34th, 39th) and Murray (25th, 36th) and Wayne Legerton
(22nd) and Cogie Butler (29th) all found the net in a 14-
minute second-half span to hand their team a deserved
title. The women s final was a much closer contest as
Paragon got goals from four different players to turn back
Harvard Maritime Checkers 4-2.
Arielle Williams fired Paragon ahead in the fifth minute
but Kwylan Jaggassar replied for Checkers five minutes
later, only for Zene Henry, the tournament s top score
to regain the lead for Paragon with her tournament high
14th goal a minute before the half.
Six minutes after the restart, Pauline Joseph extended
Paragon s lead and four minutes later, captain Alanna
Lewis made it 4-1.
Checkers which stunned tournament host Magnolias
in the semifinals did not drop their heads and in the 32nd
minute Brittney Hingh handed her team a lifeline with
their second goal of the match to trail 4-2, however, the
Paragon defence marshalled by Lewis and fellow national
player Avion Ashton held firm to secure the US$1,000
winner take all top prize.
The veterans final was a one-sided affair as Queen s
Park led by two goals each from National Security Minister,
Gary Griffith and Raphael Govia dispatched national
, Defence Force, 7-2.
In addition to the team prizes and individual awards,
the "Toddy La Roche" award, in honour of Shandy Carib
Magnolias first president and a former T&T Women s
Hockey Association president, who passed away earlier
this year was also presented.
The award which will become an annual award, is
given to a recipient (team or individual) who represents
the true "Spirit of the Game", and displays the charac-
teristics of what the sport is all about.
The first recipient of the award and the winner for
2013 was Anthony "Bumper" Marcano - Coach in U21
(Men and Women), Open (Men and Women), Player Vets
