It rained goals in the North Zone of the Co­ca Co­la In­ter­Col on Mon­day at the Hase­ly Craw­ford, Mu­cu­rapo, with Pre­mier­ship strug­glers Mal­ick Sec­ondary ham­mer­ing Diego Mar­tin North Sec­ondary 13-0. And in an­oth­er game, de­mot­ed pre­mier di­vi­sion cam­paign­ers Trin­i­ty Mo­ka made a bold state­ment for the zone's In­ter­Col ti­tle by clob­ber­ing St Fran­cis Col­lege 3-0.

In the end, how­ev­er, the tal­ly showed 17 goals scored in two match­es. Mal­ick's Zion Car­pette, Nick­el Alexan­der and Jabari Williams all scored hat-tricks in the win to set up a mouth-wa­ter­ing con­test with Trin­i­ty Mo­ka on Thurs­day at St Mary's Col­lege Ground in St Clair.

The trio has scored more than three-quar­ter of their school's goals this sea­son de­spite their 12-place fin­ish.

Yes­ter­day coach An­tho­ny Bartho­molmew sent a warn­ing to his op­po­nents who de­feat­ed them in the pre­mier­ship sea­son, that they should not be com­pla­cent when the teams meet in the In­ter­Col.

"The play­ers en­tered the Pre­mier Di­vi­sion an in­ex­pe­ri­enced bunch, but have now got­ten the ex­pe­ri­ence they need­ed. We are se­ri­ous­ly go­ing af­ter the In­ter­Col ti­tle and we be­lieve we can do it. We are ready now," Bartholomew said.

He added, "We have even changed our for­ma­tion from 5:3:2 to 4:3:3 to al­low the at­tack­ers the room and chance to ex­press them­selves and score goals."

In the oth­er game, Trin­i­ty Mo­ka got goals from Jardel Mitchell, Je­sus Phillip and Josi­ah Su­perville in their 3-0 tri­umph of St Fran­cis Col­lege. Man­ag­er Shawn Lyn­d­say said he team will be pre­pared for Mal­ick when the time comes, say­ing foot­ball is played on the day. "For sure we will not be un­der­es­ti­mat­ing any team and we will be go­ing out to play."
