Lukeman Brooks sank four goals to pilot host San Juan North Secondary School past Speyside High, 6-1, in the Premier Division contest of the Shell/First Citizen Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL), yesterday.

The win in its final league match, moved the previously fifth-placed San Juan up into fourth spot, bumping Shiva Boys High down one place following its 4-1 loss to Carapichaima East in Pointe-a-Pierre.

In San Juan, it was Tigana O’Brien opening the scoring for his team in the seventh minute. He was joined by Brooks on the scoresheet getting San Juan’s second goal, a minute later.

The team from Tobago managed to pull one back in the 10th thanks to Kerry McDonald but the Bourg- Mulatresse team continued to attack and was rewarded with another item from Brooks in the 39th before Renaldo Boyce put in another in the 42nd, giving San Juan a 4-1 lead at the half.

In the second session, play remained in favour of the San Juan unit with Brooks continuing where he left off scoring another goal in the 49th to increase his team’s advantage to 5-1.

Speyside, which in cellar-place on the 15-team table, managed to hold off its opponent for much of the second half but was unable to restrict Brooks, who sealed the victory with a goal in the final minute.

At Guaracara Park, the upset win by Carapichaima over Shiva also saw some movement upward for the Central-based team progressing from ninth spot to eighth. Kevon Williams and Theophilus Bourne netted a pair of goals to earn their team the much needed success.

Jabari Graham scored the lone item for Shiva in the 71st.

Fatima College also jumped two spots up into sixth place despite drawing with Signal Hill, 2-2 at Black Rock in Tobago. Jean-Heim Mc Fee and Joshua Araujo-Wilson was on target for Fatima while Ronaldo Samuel and Jokiah Leacock found the back of net for the host.

Another winner in the round of rescheduled matches was Presentation College, which topped St Augustine Secondary, 3-0 with goals coming from Omri Baird in 16th, Shakeel Louison in the 44th and Ackeel Jacob in the 85th to keep their team in third place.

The league, which have been tainted by a number of protest issues over the past few weeks, comes to an end on Saturday as two teams, St Anthony’s College and Naparima College battle for top honours.
