Combermere U-19 champs
Combermere clinched the Barbados Secondary Schools’ Under-19 football league title despite being held to a nervy 1-1 draw by The Lodge School Monday at Massiah Street.
The Waterford boys, needing only a point to secure the cup, were gifted a first-half lead when Lamar Catlyn found the back of his own net in the fifth minute.
Nathan Skeete whipped a dangerous free-kick into the box from 20 yards out and Catlyn, in an effort to clear his lines booted past Joshua James in the Lodge goal.
Combermere, as the school motto says, were up and on but seconds later, referee Clifton Garnes reduced them to 10 men, dismissing Shaquanie Phillips after an encounter in which five players received cautions. (AGB)
