SSFL: Louison brace helps Fyzabad pull off Trincity coup
Two goals from Fyzabad College captain Sharqueel Louison helped his side deliver a 2-1 beating on Trinity College East inside Trincity during Wednesday’s round of Secondary Schools Football League Premier Division.
After a heavy downpour, Trincity looked more like a swamp than a football field, making, what was a keenly contested game, difficult for the players.
Not so difficult for Louison though, as he got off the mark quickly to notch the first of his goals in the seventh minute. Though for long periods, Trinity were in the ascendency, Louison would stun them again in the 55th.
Josiah Lord would pull one back in the 87th but not before missing an absolute sitter earlier.
Lord was the first onto a miskicked shot that deflected off a defender and rolled fortuitously into his path.
With the goal keeper beaten by the fact that the ball stopped in a puddle of water, Lord scooped what should have been a tap in, onto the crossbar and back into the waiting arms of the goalkeeper.
Louison’s first goal was a peach, the skipper running onto a through ball from a midfielder in the middle of a scrap with the defending team.
The pass was a surprise to everybody, except for Louison and he nonchalantly dribbled close to the ‘keeper before slotting home.
The captain’s second was a little more fortuitous, after a loose ball fell to him in the box with the goalkeeper already beaten. He, unlike Lord, made no mistake.
Lord would also score a good goal, tucking away a looped header to leave the result as close as the game really was.
