Action intensifies in Hockey championships


Keri[] – Action in the GT&T National Indoor league continued on Tuesday evening with the National under19 squad putting on a show at the National Gymnasium.

Just three minutes into the match, Simon roared down the pitch in a blistering counterattack move completing it in fine fashion with a well-placed shot to give Old Fort the lead.

Old Fort would find the net again, three minutes before the half when Chris Low was able to convert his shot giving Old Fort a 2-0 lead.

The under-19 squad finally managed to breakdown Old Fort’s defence, seven minutes into the second half when a well-executed attack was finished off by Leon Bacchus to finally beat goalkeeper Tony Cole.

Meanwhile, in the dying moments of the game, a bullet of a shot from Aroydy Branford through a penalty corner would draw the game at 2-2 to end the thrilling encounter.

On the distaff side, Old Fort Rising Stars continue to build on their performances each tournament by holding the seasoned Hikers goalless for a 1-0 win.

While the Hikers had the upper hand for most of the match, goalkeeper Sarafina Phillips who was playing well was unable to stop the winning goal from Maria Munroe in the fifth minute.
