Point Fortin East and St Madeleine Secondary Schools marched on to the quarterfinal round of the Coca-Cola Intercol Play-Off in similar fashions yesterday in their respective South Zone matches of the Secondary Schools Football League.
Akiel Vasprey continued his rich goal-scoring form with a beaver trick to help Point Fortin East march on from the early round of the Intercol Play-Off, with a convincing 8-0 victory over Fyzabad Anglican Secondary at Clifton Hill.
Vasprey's goal-scoring asset had been the one thing that the Point Fortin men were hoping for, and they got it. His four goals were complimented by other items from Rickel Ramgosine, Ruben Phillip, Serryon Mitchell and Jamal Seepersad.
However, it now puts them in line to face southern champion Presentation College (San Fernando) in the first match of a doubleheader at Mahaica Oval on Thursday.
St Madeleine Secondary also moved on by virtue of hammering Princes Town Secondary, 7-0, courtesy of double strikes from Kiaheem Dyer and Kareem Stewart.
Jamali Barclay, Tyrell Dyette and Adriel Acheverro scored the other goals to complete their passage into the quarters, where they face an intimidating task against Tiger Tanks Premier Division champion St Benedict's College in the second match of a doubleheader at Mahaica.
Despite the unpredictability of the Intercol, St Madeleine coach Anton Quashie said they will be facing the storm after the calm.
