Doughty sees team to glory
Goalkeeper Paul Doughty returned from Trinidad and Tobago with the successful youth volleyball team just in time to literally block Combermere from totally dominating Christ Church Foundation in the National Sports Council Sports & Games outdoor hockey league.
Doughty who was the debut setter on the volleyball team and is a competent football keeper also repeatedly denied Combermere B in Tuesday’s senior boys’ finals at the Hockey Centre which allowed prolific Peter Alleyne to strike at the other end to give Foundation the title with a close 1-0 victory.
Before Doughty had left for T&T last week, he had saved two penalties to eliminate Combermere ‘A’.
He was selected as the Most Valuable Player in the senior boys while Alleyne was the MVP in the Under-13 indoor Boys category.
However, Combermere picked up their fourth outdoor crown from five categories when the talented Tiffany Belle dropped Foundation to an embarrassing 3-2 defeat in the Under-15 girls.
Combermere fielded just five players and in spite of a full squad of eight by Foundation, Belle carried her goal tally to 21 by scoring first.
Keayana Cragwell responded for Foundation who would lose the plot in the penalty shoot out with a miss by Kabira Foster allowing Combermere to triumph.
Belle took the MVP title with Combermere winning the Senior Girls’, Under 15 boys’ and girls’ and the under 13 boys’.
The MVPs were Doughty (Foundation) Senior Boys’, Hannisha Hoyte (Springer Memorial) Senior Girls’, Christopher Goodluck (Combermere) Under 15 Boys’, Belle Under 15 Girls and Stephen Morris (Combermere) Under-13 Boys’.
