Fitz Hughes hushes Topsidaz in style


Fitz Hughes emerged winners of the Bank of SVG Barrouallie Inter Village Football Competition with a two-nil win over Loyal Bank Topsidaz in the Finals last Sunday afternoon, watched by a large number of spectators at the Keartons Playing Field.{{more}}

After an even first half, the match came to life in the second period of play with many “ooohs” and “aahs”, as both teams came close to breaking the dead lock.

But it was the visitors, Fitz Hughes, who caused their fans to erupt in joy, when Christopher Howe found space on the left side of the porous Topsidaz’s defence to slot home the ball from close range.

However, it was Kurtland Williams whose goal was the highlight of the afternoon.

Kurtland Williams finished off a surging run from Jad Williams down the left side to double the score, which remained that way to the end.

The Fitz Hughes team and their supporters popped the champagne as they were assured the championship trophy and winner’s purse of $1,200.

Home team Topsidaz with all the support earned $800.

Hill View, another of the Barrouallie teams, finished third, earning themselves $500.

Kurtland Williams was also named the MVP of the Finals and the senior competition’s best midfielder.

Also among the seniors, Javon Lynch of Plan Avenue was adjudged the best goal keeper, Kesslon Hepburn of Reversion, the best defender.

Akeeno Hazelwood of Plan Avenue gained the ‘Most Goals’ trophy.

In the Under-13 Division, Adare One was the winner and claimed all of the individual awards. Lesron Craig was adjudged the best goal keeper, Timon Mc Kie, best defender, Dylon John, best midfielder and Emroy Gloster was the leading goal scorer with seven goals.

Topsidaz won the Under-17 title, ahead of Keartons and System 3 in that order. They earned $300, $200 and $100, respectively.

Mc Rio Ash of Keartons was named the best goal keeper, Javin Sutherland of System 3, best defender, Topsidaz’s Vasbert Ledger, best midfielder, and Azhino Solomom of System 3, the most goal title for his eight goals.

Plan Avenue took the senior Knock Out title, pocketing $500.

Also at last Sunday’s closing ceremony, Peter Gould and Norrell Hull were presented with plaques for the contribution to sports in Barrouallie over the years. (RT)
