AKEEM GARCIA scored a beaver-trick as St Augustine humiliated Five Rivers 13-0 yesterday, in the first game of an East Zone double-header at the Marvin Lee Stadium, Macoya.

Action was in the Quarter Final Round of the Coca Cola Inter-Col.

Garcia found the back of the net in the 60th, 65th, 66th and 81st minutes, while Akim Andrews contributed a hat-trick, in the 19th, 42nd and 44th.

Ricardo John notched a pair, in the 14th and 39th, while Mickal Johnson (84th), Jordan Devenish (87th), Triston Hodge (88th) and Keshorn Marcelin (89th) added one apiece.

Trinity East overcame a setback to edge San Juan 2-1 in the second game at Macoya.

National Under-17 forward Brent Sam put San Juan in front after 43 minutes before Tyrik John equalised a minute into the second half. The game seemed destined for a penalty shoot-out before Taja Commissiong notched the winner in the 87th.

St Mary’s rebounded from their controversial loss in the Big Five Final against Presentation San Fernando last Monday with a narrow 1-0 win over Trinity, in the first of back-to-back North Zone Quarter Final matches.

The fans at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Mucurapo saw Rashad Hyacinth score the game’s only goal, in the 20th.

Fatima cruised into the last four with a come-from-behind 4-1 spanking of Diego Martin.

Christopher Biggette put Diego Martin ahead, on the half-hour mark, before Fatima responded in emphatic fashion, in the second half.

Kyle Lancaster scored twice, in the 54th and 68th, while Brendon Creed (65th) and Dominic Jangoo (77th) chipped in with one apiece.

St Benedict’s and Princes Town both progressed to the South Zone Semi Final Round, following yesterday’s pair of Quarter Final games at Skinner Park, San Fernando.

In the opening game in the South, Shaquille Ferrier netted a pair, in the 13th and 60th, to guide St Benedict’s to a 2-1 victory over Pleasantville. Yohannes Richardson found the back of the net for Pleasantville in the 56th.

And Anderson Toussaint struck in the 65th as Princes Town knocked out Naparima 1-0. The final set of Zonal Quarter Finals will take place tomorrow at Skinner.
