Semi Finalists Determined In Primary Schools’ Football Tournament

The scores are in and the official draw has been made for the semifinal spots in the ongoing Education and Sports Departments Primary Schools’ Football tournament.

On Friday, November 15, the final round of preliminary matches were played, with a few teams still having an outside chance of getting into the final four.  In an absolutely critical game for the Joycelyn Liburd Primary School, they lost out in their bid for the top four draw, when they were defeated by the Ivor Walters Primary School, by a margin of 2 goals to nil.

The dynamic Leon Thompson Jr was the player of the match, with his two stunning goals, then somersaulting in characteristic celebration.

On the other side of the field, the St. Thomas’ Primary school, cemented their claim, by totally dominating the Nevis Academy, with a margin of 6 goals to nil.

Gemar Rawlins 3; Adrian Williams 2 and J’tari Griffin 1.
