QC edge Foundation in opener

Social Share

Home team Queen’s College pulled off a 1-0 victory over Christ Church Foundation when the National Sports Council’s Secondary Schools’ Football Competition kicked off at Husbands and other venues yesterday.
The field had a over-growth of grass which betrayed the excess rains which had fallen in the past three weeks. It was almost comical to hear the supporters shouting for their players to come out of the “bush”. However, both teams played some enterprising and robust football.
Nevertheless, neither team had a goal to show until the 75th minute, five minutes before the final whistle.
Kevin Phillips exploited a melee in front of goal  to beat Foundation’s goalkeeper Ken Mason  in the far right-hand corner of the bars.
Phillips was mobbed by his teammates and he was promptly given a yellow card for taking off his jersey in celebrations.
In spite of some desperate attacks from Foundation, QC rallied  to come away winners, as they had done when the two teams met last season at the same venue.
Unfortunately, on that occasion QC later defaulted that match because of an unregistered player being on the roster. (KB)
