Intercol 2017: East Mucurapo down D’go North; book quarterfinal clash with St Mary’s College

Newly promoted Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) Premier Division outfit East Mucurapo Secondary will have an early test against top flight opposition on Thursday afternoon, as they booked a North Zone Intercol quarterfinal showdown with St Mary’s College at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Port of Spain from 1:30pm.

East Mucurapo, the first Intercol winners of the Premier Division era back in 2014, got their 2017 Intercol campaign off to a good start yesterday afternoon as they downed Diego Martin North Secondary 2-0 thanks to second half goals by Kevon Edwards and Gabriel Charles in the closing match of a Hasely Crawford Stadium double header.

It was a bad afternoon for Diego Martin schools as a Jaheem Granderson double inspired Malick Secondary to a 3-0 win over Diego Central in the opening fixture at the same venue. While, at Queen’s Royal College (QRC) grounds, St Francis College got the better of Tranquility Secondary 4-2 in other North Zone action.

Malick will now face Fatima College in Thursday’s other quarterfinal fixture at the Hasely Crawford venue while St Francis are due to tackle to high flying St Anthony’s College at the same stadium next Monday.

Intercol preliminary action continues today in south Trinidad.
