Hart hands HC U-16 crown
Dominic Hart proved to be Harrison College’s lifeline yesterday.
Goalkeeper Hart produced a brilliant effort to help his team stave off Graydon Sealy’s attacks to capture their second successive Coca-Cola Barbados Secondary Schools Football League Under-16 title via a 1-0 victory in an exciting final at the Wildey AstroTurf.
Hart, a midfielder who was pressed into the role of custodian during the competition because of the unavailability of the first-choice goalkeeper, pulled off a series of remarkable saves, two of them in the dying minutes.
Winning coach Wayne Forde had nothing but praise for his team.
“This team has been a picture of dedication and commitment from the start of the season and they showed a will to succeed,” he told NATIONSPORT.
“We only had three players from last year’s championship side, but these are a bunch of tough guys and they pulled through when it mattered most.”
