Young brace lifts Parkites back on top
Dominic Young scored a pair of goals as Queen’s Park whipped Fatima 3-1, to regain top spot in the T&T Hockey Board Men’s Championship Division on Saturday. This was at the National Hockey Centre in Tacarigua.
Going into the match, Notre Dame led the table with 16 points from seven matches, one ahead of Queen’s Park, who had a match in hand.
And at the half, the Parkites were already ahead with goals from Young and Nicholas Camacho.
On the resumption, Young got his second to extend the lead to 3-0 before Jordan Vieira got a late consolation for Fatima.
Queen’s Park now has 18 points from seven matches, two more than the Dames while four-time defending champions Petrotrin stayed on 13 after another surprise loss, 1-2 to Courts Malvern, on Sunday.
The hero for Malvern was teenager Teague Marcano with goals in the sixth and 13th minute before Wayne Legerton netted a 66th minute for Petrotrin which has also gone under Paradise and Notre Dame.
...Trotman, Layne punish Notre Dame
National women’s team duo, Oire Trotman and Krizia Lane netted two goals each as Courts Malvern punished an understrength line-up for defending champions, Notre Dame 4-1.
The win was the third from seven matches for the Malvernites now with ten points and three left to play.
...Beharry denied Dames Mixed Vets crown
Jameel Beharry scored a quick double as Defence Force dented the title ambitions of Notre Dame in the Mixed Veterans Division with an entertaining 4-3 triumph on Tuesday night.
Notre Dame went into its final league match with 16 points from six matches, one more than challengers, Queen’s Park which has a match outstanding and with a win would have secured the crown.
However, Defence Force which flicked off its campaign later than all other clubs due to work commitments was first to strike through Nicholas Wren in the 23rd before Leon Ramdeen replied for the Dames seven minutes later.
Nine minutes after the restart Beharry got his first and within a minute he added another for a 3-1 Defence Force cushion.
But the Dames were not ready to give up and responded through Nigel Providence to trim the deficit to 3-2 only for Kirth Davis to restore the “Teteron Boys” two-goal lead at 4-2.
With two minutes left Ramdeen fired in another to give the Dames hope, but it came too late as his team ended its campaign with 16 points, leaving the door open for Queen’s Park which faces Malvern in its final match to snatch the title.
