Veterans Football In Full Swing.
DEFENDING champions Caricom Masters kicked off the 2015 Veterans Football Tournament with a convincing four goals to nil win over Prophets and Kings on Sunday evening at the Phillip Marcellin Grounds in Vieux Fort.
Caricom Masters were led to victory with goals from Alvin Malaykhan 7th minute, Roger Celestine in the 43rd minute, Vaughn Dave Lewis in the 66th minute and Julian Joseph in the 90th minute.
The other encounter of the evening was not played as Lancers FC could not field an eleven for the start of the game and Anse La Raye were awarded a 3-0 default win. A substitute friendly encounter between Anse La Raye and a mixed team of Lancers Vieux Fort South players was held instead.
On Saturday evening Gros Islet and Congorians registered contrasting victories.
Gros Islet became the first team to qualify for the quarter finals of the tournament proper after winning their second match of the tournament with a 2-1 win over the Valley Legends of Mabouya Valley. Henderson Charles in the 37th minute and Anthony Evans in the 68th minute were the goal scorers for Gros Islet. Pius Marcel in the 49th minute converted for the Valley Legends.
In the second encounter Congorians won over Micoud Veterans 3 – 0, a score line which did not reflect the overall picture as Congorians completely dominated the match but in the process squandered several other opportunities .
