For the record, semifinal and finals of Central Zone high school football

In our report last weekend, Wesley girls and boys were through to the Finals of the Central Secondary Schools Sports Association (CSSSA) football competition. Both Gwen Liz females and males had a 1-0 edge going into their semifinal game 2 on Friday against SCA and ACC, respectively. Here are the results of those games.

On Friday, Gwen Liz girls and boys repeated their shutout victories in game 2. Gwen Liz girls won, 2-0, over SCA, with goals from Tyra Moreira and Kishay Bevans; and Gwen Liz boys blanked ACC, 3-0, with a goal apiece from Albert Davis, Clinton Dawson and Allan Castillo.

That set the stage for the Finals best-of-two series between the females and males of Wesley College and Gwen Lizarraga High School, to be played on Monday and Wednesday, February 3 and 5.

Noteworthy is that, throughout the semifinals, neither Gwen Liz female nor male team had conceded a single goal.

In the Finals game 1 on Monday, Wesley and Gwen Liz girls drew, 0-0; and Wesley and Gwen Liz boys drew, 1-1, with Kenyon Lewis scoring for Wesley and Clinton Dawson scoring for Gwen Liz.

That was the situation leading up to yesterday’s dramatic Finals Game 2 at the MCC for the Central Division high school football championship for both females and males.

As described in another article in this issue, Gwen Liz girls won 1-0 in a penalty shootout, after going scoreless with Wesley girls through regulation and overtime. And Wesley boys prevailed, 2-1, in overtime, after being 1-1 with Gwen Liz in regulation. Nathan Oliver put Wesley in front in first half, and Allan Castillo equalized for Gwen Liz in second half; the game winner for Wesley boys was by Keeron Young in overtime.

Gwen Liz girls and Wesley boys are therefore CSSSA 2013-2014 football champions, and will represent the Central Zone in next week’s high school football Nationals in Dangriga.
