St Mary’s College has set up a mouth-watering contest with arch rivals Fatima in the Coca Cola National InterCol play-offs next week after brushing aside East Mucurapo 3-1 yesterday at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Mucurapo.

The usually outstanding Tyrese Spicer was among the goal scorers for the Saints on the afternoon, along with Devon Charles and Michel Poon-Angeron. East Mucurapo, who earned promotion to next year’s Premier Division fought hard in the encounter but could only manage a solitary item from Jelani Ferari in the 56th minute. Coach Dales said afterwards that the better team won on the day.

The win has set up a showdown between the schools at the same venue on November 16.

In the other match at the Stadium, Fatima thrashed Malick Secondary 3-0. Mikhail Mc Comie scored in the 35th minute to send his team to the interval with a 1-0 advantage. And afterwards Jean-Heim Mc See and Joshua Araujo sealed the win with goals in the 79th and 84th minutes.

In the sister isle of Tobago Bishops needed kicks from the penalty spot to turn back Roxborough Secondary 4-2 after the game ended 1-1 at the end of regulation time at Bon Accord.

Roxborough opened the scoring in the 42nd minute from Terrelle Collins and appeared to be heading for the win until Dominic Lyons equalised in the 81st minute.
