This Day in History

Saturday, 01 December 2012

Shiva Boys Hindu College created history as it lifted the Coca-Cola National South Zone InterCol title for the first time after defeating favourites Presentation College of San Fernando 4-2 on penalty kicks after a goalless encounter. The match did not feature as much flair and excitement, which was on display at the original hosting of the final on Monday, which was abandoned after 80 minutes after a referee’s assistant Kevin Charles was attacked by an unruly spectator (Godfrey Adams). Monday’s match was called off, at which point Presentation held a 2-1 lead. Presentation almost did not participate in a replay of the South Zone final as it held the view that it should have been awarded a win, due to the fact that the supporter, who struck the official allegedly admitted to being a supporter of Shiva Boys. The Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) subsequently awarded Shiva a place in the national semifinal. However, Presentation later consulted with several players, who unanimously agreed to replay the match in which Shiva Boys won the reply. The match ended with Shiva edging Presentation in many ways apart from the score. Shiva followed up by converting all of its attempts from the penalty spot, while Presentation failed in its second and third attempt. Shiva goalkeeper Quesi Weston scored the first, followed by successful shots from Anderson Cornwall and Dwight Pope. The final shot taken by Shaquille Jogie found the back of the net to the jubilation of the Shiva players.
