SSFL 19: Oliver and Yorke star against former schoolmates as Malick edge Trinity East 2-1

EPL Properties Ltd

Malick Secondary snapped a three game losing streak this afternoon in Trincity as they edged Trinity College East 2-1 in a rescheduled Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) Premier Division fixture.

It was not an unfamiliar ground for Malick attacker Dwight Yorke and goalkeeper Khalil Oliver, as the former ‘Blue Hawks’ students returned to haunt their former school. Oliver saved a penalty from Trinity East captain Romario Mahabir while Yorke, who represented Valencia Secondary last season, scored the winner as the newly promoted team climbed to fifth place with nine points—five points below current leaders and defending champions, Naparima College.

Jabari Williams scored Malick’s opening item.

For Trinity East, it was their fourth loss on the trot as the east zone team are yet to win since their season opener against St Benedict’s College. The Hawks are 11th in the 15-team Premier Division standings and just two points clear of cellar placed St Benedict’s, who have three points.

Up next for Trinity? They travel to Lewis Street, San Fernando on Wednesday to face ‘Naps’. Malick will remain on east-west corridor in midweek as they face another struggling outfit, St Augustine Secondary.

The ‘Green Machine’ are the only top flight SSFL team yet to register a win in 2019 although four of their six matches have ended in draws.
