Alexandra hammer Ellerslie


Added 17 October 2012


The Alexandra School's strikers showed no mercy against Ellerslie during their third-round match of the 2012 Coca-Cola Barbados Secondary Schools’ Football League Under-19 Competition last Monday. Alexandra were ungracious hosts, whipping their guests 9-1 in a Zone B match. Armande Griffith scored five, while Treyvon Bowen, Romario Jordan, Khobi Carter and Ramon Cumberbatch added one each in the rout. In the same zone, defending champions Samuel Jackman Prescod Polytechnic maintained their unbeaten start to the tournament with a 3-0 victory over Coleridge & Parry, behind goals from Kelvin Brathwaite, Cameron Lewis and Shaquille Beckles. And not to be outdone, Deighton Griffith also hammered four past Grantley Adams Memorial, who scored two in reply. In the same group, Combermere fell to a surprise 1-0 defeat to St James through a Tristan Cummins goal. The St Michael School had the biggest victory in Zone A, beating Alleyne School 4-2. Alex Fergusson, Raedon Benn, Ranaldo Bailey and Deon Hope scored for the Martindales Road lads, while Brandon Yearwood and Akio Bartlett pulled two back for Alleyne. Rashid Blackman and Ross Terry scored for The Lodge School, who drew 2-2 with Harrison College. Daniel Taylor and Torian Went netted for Kolij. St Leonard’s dropped their first points when they drew 1-1 with Queen’s College at Richmond Gap. Keon Atkins scored for St Leonard’s and Daniel Griffith got the equalizer. Bad field conditions forced the postponement of the match between Trident Splash Parkinson and Princess Margaret, and that between Barbados Community College (BCC) and Foundation wasn’t played because of the early closure of the BCC.
