PHOENIX UFO Toyota Fire House almost had to answer a charge of soccer arson after heating up a wet Kensington Oval outfield on a chilly Sunday night in the LIME Pelican Football Challenge.

Luckily, the flames were only in the first half as they smoked out Broad Street Men’s and Women’s Red Tridents 4-1 in the final quarter-final match.

Fire House’s semi-final opponents will be Indar Weir Barbados Steel Works Top Bay Settlers, who ousted last year’s losing finalists Nu Look 360 Connection 1-0 in the preceding quarter-final. The formidable Akademiks will clash with T.S. Strikers in the other semi-final.

Whereas a 49th minute goal by national footballer Ramuel Miller earned Top Bay Settlers a tense victory, Fire House lit up the Oval with four first-half goals.
