Lester Vaughan Under-14 champs
ALL confidence and aggression, The Lester Vaughan Secondary, inspired by two strikes in the first ten minutes, became the toast of schools’ Under-14 football with a comprehensive 3-1 rout of Deighton Griffith at the National Stadium yesterday.
Omani Leacock lashed in goals in the sixth and tenth minutes and when impressive centre-forward Rajohn Hawkesworth, the tournament’s leading goalscorer, added another five minutes later, the match was over as a contest.
Deighton Griffith, led by their best player Sergio Hippolyte, never gave up and had the better of the second half, but were shut down almost every time they posed a threat. Forward Shakarie Mottley had a few half-chances but was not able to add to the seven goals he scored en route to the final.
In the dying minutes, Lester Vaughan’s right-back Xavier Dottin-Lynch, scored an own-goal to reduce the deficit, but by then, the die had been cast. (MK)
