Intercol 19: Azahrias fills his boots as Fatima spank Blanchisseuse 10-1 in pick of Friday’s fixtures

Fatima College breezed into the North Zone Intercol quarterfinal round yesterday after an emphatic 10-1 win over Blanchisseuse Secondary at the St Mary’s College ground in Serpentine Road, St Clair.

Fatima, who are also fighting for promotion to the SSFL Premier Division via the Big Five competition, did not mess about against their fellow Championship team. Attacker Azahrias Ali scored four times for the Mucurapo Road boys while Giovanni Warner and Joshua Mason notched doubles and Joshua Nurse and Christopher Syms chipped in with a goal apiece.

Elsewhere in the North Zone, recently relegated Premier Division team St Mary’s College were made to sweat in Westmoorings as they scraped their way to a 5-4 win over Diego Martin Central Secondary. And it was slightly more comfortable for Tranquility Secondary as they downed Mucurapo West Secondary 2-0 on Mucurapo Road.

Fatima will now play East Mucurapo Secondary from 3pm in a North Zone quarterfinal double header at the Hasely Crawford Stadium on 12 November while St Anthony’s College and Tranquility clash from 5pm at the same venue.

St Mary’s College face rivals Queen’s Royal College from 3pm on Mucurapo Road on 7 November in another North quarterfinal.

Intercol action continues on Monday as Malick Secondary tackle Diego Martin North Secondary and Trinity College Moka take on St Francis Boys in a double header at the Hasely Crawford Stadium from 3pm and 5pm respectively.
