THE UNBEATEN Barbados Soccer Academy Under-13 team notched the first victory of their tour of Canada in grand style on Thursday, blanking the USC Soccer Academy 7-0.
After drawing their first three matches, the young Bajan footballers went on a goal spree in their fourth match in Toronto.
Stefan Lorde started the goal rush in the tenth minute after being fed a pass by Kavian Inniss. Lorde scored again in the 20th minute, putting a 20-metre shot into the left corner of the nets.
Captain Renaldo Bowen made it 3-0, heading home a cross from Rickneco Marshall in the 25th minute.
In the second half, Dominic Crichlow got the BSA fourth goal with a long-range shot, while Lorde completed his hat-trick in the 45th minute with a simple tap-in after a goalmouth melee.
Tao Best, who captained Westbury Primary School in the recent BICO Primary School Tournament, made his first mark for the Academy in the 50th minute by scoring a header from a cross from Jaleel Corbin.
Marshall, the smallest Barbadian on the field, scored the final goal in the 65th minute. He collected a pass from Rashad Brathwaite and easily slotted home after taking on two defenders and the goalkeeper. (EZS)
