Bishop’s Secondary, in their second foray into the BGT&T/First Citizens Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) Girls “Big Four”, are now into the national final after a hard-fought win over Fyzabad Secondary yesterday from the penalty spot.
Kerrisha Simon, Lakita Hall and Player-of-the-Match Krystal Taylor each scored from the spot after a 0-0 regulation scoreline forced the shootout.
“Fyzo’s” Shaminka Rocastle was the only player for the new South champions to beat Bishop’s goalkeeper Nafeisha Radgman, meaning her team’s League campaign has ended.
The first portion of the encounter was played under a strong downpour that forced the teams off the field. After a significant stoppage the girls returned to the pitch, but struggled with their passing and shooting due to a swampy outfield.
Fyzabad had to overcome some late pressure, but made it to the shootout.
And after their triumph, Bishop’s will play the winners between St Augustine Secondary of East Zone and North champs Bishop’s Anstey of Port of Spain in tomorrow’s semi at Larry Gomes Stadium in Malabar from 2 p.m.
