Defending champs grind out win to take Premiership lead

By September 23, 2018

With last week’s leaders St Anthony’s College on a bye, defending Secondary Schools Football League Premier Division champs, Presentation College took full advantage to take the lead in the 2018 tournament with a hard-fought win over St Mary’s College (CIC). 

Presentation earned the win after a brilliant strike from Akeem Barkley in the 79th minute broke the deadlock in a game that had end-to-end action, with chances going a-begging for both teams.

Not to be outdone, Naparima College kept pace with the leaders, moving to seven points from three games with a 3-1 away victory over St Benedict’s College.

San Juan North Secondary find themselves one of three teams on six points after they played their second game on Saturday, beating promoted side Bishop’s High 4-2.

St Augustine Secondary got their first win of the season after three games when they clipped the Queen’s Royal College 1-0 at home.

In another game from the round on Saturday, promoted side, Valencia had a tough day, going down 3-2 to Trinity College Moka in what could have been the most exciting game of the fixture list.

The other game on the day was also a 1-0 affair, with Trinity College East earning an away victory over Fatima College.
