Signal Hill, led by Asha James, rolled out another win in the Tobago Zone of the Shell/First Citizens Secondary Schoolgirls Football League Championship Division on Thursday evening, claiming a hard fought 5-3 victory over host Mason Hall.
The other goal for the winner came from Avonel Lorraine, to help Signal Hill closeout round one as the leader.
Mason Hall, who was previously undefeated with wins over Bishop’s (3-2), Scarborough (2-1) and Pentecostal Light and Life (8-0), got a goal each from Desiree Cox, Celine Lorraine and Curisia Campbell but they were all in vain as their team suffered its first loss of the season.
There were a flurry of goals in the other matches played in the zone as well, with Scarborough sealing a 6-nil victory over Speyside High and Bishop’s High, a 6-1 win over Pentecostal Light and Life.
Aaliyah Charles and Jahmilia Edwards netted three goals each for Scarborough, who secured its second victory from four matches.
In the other affair, Megan Henry, Darianne Henry and Dinesha Manning each netted a pair of goals for Bishop’s. Faith Joseph hit the lone item for Pentecostal.
Denecia Prince finally returned to action for Fyzabad in the South Zone after getting approval from the Ministry of Education and her presence was immediately felt, notching four goals, to pilot Fyzabad to a 11-1 win in a one-sided encounter.
Abishai Guy and Shanaqua Lewis scored a double each while their teammates Aniyka Sylvan, Precious Paul and Douanna Osbourne added one apiece in the comfortable win in Pleasantville, to complete the first round on top of the standings. St Joseph Convent got an easy three points after Point Fortin East forfeited the other match in the South Zone.
North Zone’s leading scorer Shauna Lee Govia scored the winner for Tranquility, who escaped with a narrow one-goal victory Bishop’s Anstey High.
Govia’s tally now goes up to 12 goals after netting five in her team’s opening match against St Joseph Convent Port-of-Spain, bettering that on Sunday against St Francois Girls, with six.
On Sunday from 3.45 pm, Tranquility will be looking to stay unbeaten to end the first round on top when it meets Diego Martin Central, who also has no losses.
