Defending Champions Presentation College out of the blocks early

By September 15, 2018

Presentation College, defending Secondary School Football League Premier Division champions, got out of the gate quickly this season, winning their opening encounter at home to Trinity College Moka. 

Presentation were comfortable in the end, earning a 3-1 win, while Naparima College, the team that finished second, just two points adrift last season, ensured they kept pace with a 3-1 away win against St Mary’s College.

Newcomers Bishop’s High had a better day than did their fellow promoted team, Valencia, who lost in an opener on Wednesday.

Bishop’s were not winners but their 2-2 draw with Fatima College may just give them the hope they can survive at top-flight football.

St Anthony’s College, who finished third in the competition last year, were also winners, coming up 4-2 winners over St Augustine Secondary.

Another newcomer to the league, East Mucurapo, also earned a point, the promoted team earning a 2-2 draw with the Queen’s Royal College.

When the results, added to the opening double header between Valencia Secondary and San Juan North Secondary, and Trinity College East and St Benedict’s College, are counted, San Juan North Secondary, St Anthony’s College and Naparima College are one, two, and three with the defending champions in close attendance at fourth.

    Bayern Munich youngster Jann-Fiete Arp has been diagnosed with another injury just two days after returning to full training with the Bundesliga champions.

    The 19-year-old, who joined from Hamburg in July, was welcomed back to a team session at Sabener Strasse on Tuesday for the first time since having surgery on a broken left wrist in September.

    However, the forward is now expected to be sidelined for a time after damaging his left forearm.
