The SWA Sharks turned in a sterling performance to skip past the Flamingos 3-0, in the latest match of the Provo Premier League played at the TCI Football Association Academy Field in Providenciales on Sunday.
The Sharks’ goals came from Brian Gregg, Phillip Shearer and Junior Paul.
The Flamingos matched skills with the Sharks for the better part of the first half, and while they were not able to get the go-ahead goal, managed to defend well for more than half-hour.
However, the Sharks were able to finally breach their defence courtesy of a strike from number 10 player, Greg, in the 37th minute. That lead was doubled on the stroke of halftime, when veteran Shearer, sporting the number 6 jersey, struck, giving his team a 2-0 cushion heading into the break.
The sharks pushed for a widening of the lead in the second half, while the Flamingos sought to erase the two-goal deficit. However, it was the Sharks, who managed to deliver in that half, when Paul found the back of the net in the 83rd minute.
In the first of a doubleheader on Saturday, September 11, Eagles FC outscored Beaches FC 5-2 in what was a thrilling game.
Double strikes from Jean Innocent and Mike Legeme, and a single goal from Guiterson Vilcourt did the trick for the Eagles. The Beaches FC goals came from Woody Gemedy and Angelyn Cadet.
Eagles led 3-0 at halftime.
Innocent opened the scoring for Eagles in the 21st minute, widening the lead five minutes later, when Legeme struck in the 26th minute later. Vilcourt stretched the lead two minutes later to 3-0, when in the 28th minute, breached the opponents’ defense.
Eagles made it 4-0 in the 53rd minute when Innocent struck. But a minute later, Beaches finally opened their account when Gemedy managed to get the ball past the Eagles goalkeeper.
Undaunted by the concession, Eagles pressed to widen the margin and was justly rewarded when Legeme made it 5-1 in the 63rd minute.
Cadet, eight minutes from time, managed to pull one back. Eagles, nonetheless, then saw the game through without further breaches from Beaches.
In the feature encounter, Blue Hills came from behind to decimate Teachers FC 5-1. The Blues Hills FC goals came courtesy of a double strike by Job Jeanlis, while Bendy Lincifort, Franky Pierre and Peterson Pluvoise scored one each.
Jimmy Registre scored the Teachers FC goal.
Registre found the back of the Blue Hills net in the 20th minute of the game. Lancifort cancelled that lead just four minutes after his team went behind. Ten minutes later in the 35th minute, Jeanlis opened his account and gave his team the go-ahead goal, to end the first half 2-1 in favour of Blue Hills.
In the second half, Blue Hills battled for further ascendancy, while Teachers fought to draw level. It was not until the 81st minute that another goal was scored when Pierre got one past the goalkeeper.
Four minutes later, Blue Hills made another breach in the Teachers defence through Jeanlis, who completed his double. Blue Hills then completed their dominance three minutes into added time, when Pluvoise got his name on the scoresheet.
