No coach Shawn Coop­er, no prob­lem. This as Pre­sen­ta­tion Col­lege of San Fer­nan­do led by a brace from Jaiye Shep­pard con­tin­ued the team's de­fence of its Shell/First Cit­i­zens Sec­ondary Schools Foot­ball League Pre­mier Di­vi­sion crown with a 5-0 ham­mer­ing of Va­len­cia Sec­ondary at Union Hall, San Fer­nan­do, on Wednes­day.

With head coach Shawn Coop­er away on na­tion­al du­ty with the T&T women’s team at the CON­CA­CAF Cham­pi­onship in the USA, all eyes were on Pre­sen­ta­tion to see how the de­fend­ing cham­pi­on would re­spond un­der the su­per­vi­sion of as­sis­tant coach Dun­ston Williams.

And at the half-time in­ter­val, it was steady progress as Pre­sen­ta­tion led 1-0 thanks to a strike from Justin Corn­wall in the 38th minute. How­ev­er, with­in four min­utes of the restart, it was all over as a con­test with Shep­pard scor­ing in the 47th and 49th min­utes to put the hosts 3-0 ahead.

Va­len­cia then pressed the self-de­struct but­ton with Kee­gan Faria (62nd), Dwight Yorke (64th) and Zi­dan Liv­er­pool (67th) all shown straight red cards by ref­er­ee Clevon Joseph, to re­duce their team to eight play­ers. Faria was shown a red for a dan­ger­ous tack­le while Yorke and Liv­er­pool were for dis­sent.

To add to the vis­i­tor's mis­ery, Jardel St Clair and Sha­keem Julien then added to Pre­sen­ta­tion's tal­ly in the 68th and 81st min­utes re­spec­tive­ly to se­cure their biggest win of the cam­paign so far this sea­son, and record the school's sixth vic­to­ry on-a-trot for max­i­mum 18 points, two ahead of bit­ter neigh­bour and for­mer two-time cham­pi­on, Na­pari­ma Col­lege.

The trio of Tyrike An­drews, Isa Bram­ble and Jeron Pan­tor scored a goal each to see Na­pari­ma past Bish­op's High School at Lewis Street, San Fer­nan­do.

Up at San Juan North Sec­ondary ground, Bourg Mu­la­tresse, Jer­ry Mor­ris filled in for the sus­pend­ed pair of Ronal­do Boyce and Tyrell Cameron with a pair of goals in a 3-2 tri­umph over Cara­pichaima East, to move in­to sole pos­ses­sion of the third spot with 15 points and a match in hand on the top two.

Isa­iah Chase added the valu­able third item for San Juan North while Mick­el Alexan­der and Josi­ah King got a goal each in the loss for Cara­pichaima East, which dropped to the sixth spot with nine points, two be­hind St An­tho­ny's Col­lege and Trin­i­ty Col­lege Mo­ka.

Down at St An­tho­ny's Ground, West­moor­ings, Kiron Man­swell and cap­tain Haile Beck­les net­ted first-half items.

Else­where, in an­oth­er North Zone der­by, East Mu­cu­rapo Sec­ondary got a 93rd minute win­ner from Ki­danie Lewis to edge past Fa­ti­ma Col­lege 3-2 at Fa­ti­ma Col­lege Ground, Mu­cu­rapo for its first win, while down at Guaracara Park, Pointe-a-Pierre St Bene­dict’s Col­lege, al­so won for the first time this sea­son, 1-0 against St Au­gus­tine Sec­ondary.

The match be­tween Trin­i­ty Mo­ka and Queen's Roy­al Col­lege (QRC) at Mar­aval was post­poned due to a wa­ter­logged field.

Pres Sando blank Valencia in SSFL.
By Joel Bailey (Newsday).

PRESENTATION San Fernando continued their 100 per cent record in the Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) Premier Division yesterday with a 5-0 whipping of Valencia at Union Hall, Marabella, in a Round Six fixture.

Presentation, the 2017 champs, have 18 points, two more than Naparima, who cruised past cellar-placed Bishop’s High 3-0 at Lewis Street, San Fernando.

The goal-getters for Naparima were Tyrike Andrews (14th minute), Isa Bramble (49th minute) and Jeron Pantor (56th minute penalty).

Like Presentation, San Juan are yet to lose a game this season. They remained in third spot after defeating Carapichaima East 3-2 at San Juan.

St Anthony’s moved up three places to fourth after defeating the struggling St Mary’s 2-0 at Westmoorings.

East Mucurapo and St Benedict’s registered their first victories of the 2018 season. East Mucurapo edged neighbours Fatima 3-2 at the Fatima Ground and St Benedict’s got a narrow 1-0 win over St Augustine at Guaracara Park, Pointe-a-Pierre.

A soggy outfield at Maraval forced the abandonment of the game between Trinity Moka and QRC.

Matches in Round Seven will be contested on Saturday.
