After weeks of battles, the finalists in the Scotiabank National Youth Cup have been decided.

With the Under-9 and Under-11 titles already decided, the Under-13s, 15 and 17 are now into the championship round after last weekend’s semi-finals. Having played at venues all across the island, the action will be moving to the Wildey AstroTurf on Saturday from 8:30 a.m.

In Tier 1, National Sports Council Blenheim Ballers are scheduled to face Kick Start Hammers in the Under-13 final after both teams booked their berths in fine style.

The Blenheim Ballers got the better of Pinelands Academy with a 4-2 triumph, courtesy a hat-trick from Khimani Cox. For Kick Start, it was a clear-cut 3-0 win over Pro Shottas that saw them to the final.

At the Under-15 level, a brace from Raequon Jacob-Jones helped Mavericks to 5-0 win over Paradise. They will be going up against Pinelands, who had a much tougher time advancing as they gained a narrow 1-0 victory from Pro Shottas.

After missing out twice, Pro Shottas’ Under-17 side finally reached the final.

They had a 2-0 win over Barbados Soccer Academy with Thierry Gale scoring both goals. Pro Shottas have a date in the final with Mavericks Fire after they scored a solitary goal to take the spot over the Barbados Youth Service.

In Tier 2, Fitts Village West Coast are final-bound at the Under-13 level after a slim 1-0 win over the highly competitive debutants, United Stars Alliance. The other spot went to Whitehall after they destroyed Mavericks 5-1 with Najae Hinds scored twice.

Among the Under-15s, Cosmos defeated the Bayville-based team Notre Dame 2-1. United Stars Alliance also earned a place in the final with a 3-2 win over All Stars Elite.

Fitts Village West Coast gained their spot in the final after Keshawn Haynes scored all three goals in a 3-1 victory over Brittons Hill in one of the Under-17 semis. The other semi-final saw Whitehall easing home 2-1 over Weymouth Wales. (BFA)
