The footballers sealed the deal last Tuesday, when they ousted their opponents in the semi-finals.

The juniors edged out the St Martin’s Secondary 2-1, while the seniors stopped the Sandy Bay Secondary 3-0.

Registering the two items for Bethel High in the Junior Division were Cados Solomon and Slyford Lampkin, while Erel Hector netted for St Martin’s.

Ensuring Bethel’s berth in the senior finals for the fourth successive year, were Malcolm Stewart with two goals and Kimron Charles, the other.

This Thursday, November 20 at the Victoria Park, are the date and venue for the finals, as Bethel meets the Central Leeward Secondary in the juniors championship match and the seniors take on the Dr JP Eustace Memorial in the title decider.

Central Leeward, in the other half of the junior semis, got past the Emmanuel High School Mespo, 3-2 and Dr JP Eustace Memorial clobbered Georgetown Secondary 7-0.

Gareth Leigertwood, Corey Anderson and Gibson Francis netted for Central Leeward in their win, with Nigel Mathias and Michael Matthews replying for the losers.

For the Dr JP Eustace Memorial, Hosni Chandler poked in a hat trick; Keron Pitt hit a brace, and one each came from Ronaldo Baptiste and Mickele Culzac.

On Thursday, both third places were decided, with St Martin’s defeating Emmanuel High Mespo, 2-1 in the Juniors, and Georgetown Secondary outplayed Sandy Bay Secondary, 4-1 in the Senior play-off.

St Martin’s Secondary’s goal scorers were Dave Duncan and Erel Hector. Benjamin Williams replied for Emmanuel High Mespo.

For Georgetown, Lesron James had two goals and there was one each from Lewis Joseph and Delroy Collins, with Sandy Bay’s coming from Othneil Stay.

In Saturday’s final, Bethel High would be looking to do what Central Leeward attained in 2011, when they left the Victoria Park, clutching both titles.

It is the first time in the history of schools netball and football that one institution is in all four finals of the two disciplines.

The netball finals are slated for Friday afternoon at the Arnos Vale Netball Complex.
