Naparima College made a magnificent start to the Secondary Schools Under-14 football league when they hammered Fyzabad Anglican Secondary 12-1 at Lewis Street in San Fernando on Friday.
Leading the way for Naps was Molik Khan who scored an amazing six goals.
He was well supported up front by Kern Cedeno who netted four times, while there were single strikes for Nirvan Ramnarine and Terrel Rajoon.
While Naps peppered the Fyzabad net, their goalkeeper Joshua Dowlath was very good between the sticks and kept the opposition at bay.
Sports administrator at Naparima College Percy Samlalsingh told Guardian Media that he is very pleased with the development programme that the school has in place and the young players are pointing to a bright future. “At Naparima College we are all about a balance with the academics and sport.
We try to do things properly here as this has been drilled into us by principal Dr. Michael Dowlath and we are starting to see the results.”
Samlalsingh added that although Naps have a young team in the Premier league this season, he sees no reason why they can’t win every title that is before them.
“We have a young team this season but still we have retained 11 players from last year.
These guys have the experience and talent, so I see no reason why we can’t go on and win every title that is before us.”
Last season Naps won the Digicel Play Big-4 and finished second to Shiva Boys in the league. In the Intercol, they were beaten by penalty kicks in the semi-finals of the South Zone.
