St Augustine routs Pres; CIC, Arima keep 100 percent records

There was no place like home for St Augustine Secondary as the “Green Machine” kicked into gear with a 5-2 win over Presentation College (San Fernando) this evening in SSFL Premier Division action in St Augustine.

St Augustine was hammered 3-0 in its season opener against St Mary’s College on Wednesday but rebounded in positive fashion today thanks to a hattrick from playmaker Jesse Joseph. Levon Bass scored twice for Presentation to take his tally to three goals from successive matches but it was not nearly enough to avoid another lopsided defeat for the San Fernando schoolboys.

Arima North Secondary whipped Presentation 3-1 on Thursday evening. And the “Dial Dynamos” were at it again today as they whipped guest team East Mucurapo Secondary 3-1.

The Arima team, which has a 100 percent record from its two outings, already has six different scorers this season.

St Mary’s College is the other team that has snatched maximum points from its games thus far although all-action midfielder Ethan Shim was again an inspirational figure. Shim, who got among the goals in midweek, scored in the 42nd minute to give the “Saints” a slender 1-0 win away to Naparima College.

There was disappointment in La Romaine as today’s fixture between St Benedict’s College and St Anthony’s College never kicked off. Up to the time of publication, there was no referee’s report to explain the problem there.

In the remaining two matches, Navin Suraj scored an 85th minute winner for Shiva Boys Hindu College against Chaguanas North Secondary at Guaracara Park while Fatima College endured a nightmare trip to Bourg Mulattrasse as the northerners were routed 5-1 by San Juan North Secondary.

  1. That Arima squad with papa , trotman and Mr Brent Bennett was a bomb squad colleges league based on what clips ive seen has deteriorated tremendously but I’m a Roylian for life:)

  2. These were good competitive teams though we can all admit.

  3. Woaps woaps, big teams get big team calls by refs and assistants. Maynard was making big team calls. ha ha ha.

  4. Not ah change… refs still atrocious …

  5. Things ain’t change much nah

  6. Hahahaha is Ref Maynard you referring to? He is still around

  7. We get our rough up in 89….. flickin’ Nixon score offside goal after Gustine couldn’t find dey way against CIC on serpentine rd… ent Kester Lendor 🙂

  8. Yeah our 1990 squad was loaded… disappointed we didn’t bring home a national title because i felt it was our best chance. Thanks to that &%#$ Maynard lol….

  9. That 1990 squad, if memory serves, had Brent Bennett on top with Granville Millington and Kerwyn “Papa” Emmanuel in centre and Mickey on the right. My good pal Joel Nesbitt on the left…
    You might be right. Papa was one of my favourite all time Trinidad playmakers.

  10. I’d argue that Arima’s 1990 team was better… but hey I’m biased

  11. Ok. Allyuh had a lil spell there Chaim. 🙂
    That Arima squad in 92 is one of the strongest I’ve seen btw.

  12. Qrc after 1993 still did well with Marco Elcock and team

  13. No bird the only time CIC beat QRC during my time was in a big 8 down in south we played a bad game that day and that was the only title we didn’t win in 1991 other than the intercol finals that never played which should have been QRC/Arima in 1992 when we didn’t do well we still beat CIC and 1993 we did as well.

  14. If qrc lucky, they will draw the Saints in the Intercol for some licks for ole time sake!! Right Chaim Mckain and Walter Alibey?

  15. Crazy eh when I left Trinidad QRC was ah force to be reckon with! They need to rise again!

  16. TIKKI TAZZA!!!!! (CIC for life)… 🙂

  17. I feel we could do it, every year we getting better. East zone intercol at least!

  18. Make allyuh history Aaron Pollard just not this year and not against the Dial Dynamos

  19. Ok. I think ILP might have a better shot at the next general election. But nice to have ambition. 🙂

  20. Trinity is the only team in the 14 team premiership that have never won a zonal or national title, but we changing that this year for sure!!!!

  21. Hahaha. Ouch. Give us the history of Trinity College East Inka Raphael and Aaron Pollard

  22. And as for you Ms. Inka, who on earth are the Blue Hawks?

  23. Blah blah blah, Briggsie, Aaron Pollard and Lasana talk allyuh talk now now. Yuh cyar put Bolt to run in the 5,000 m steeplechase in the olympics. (lol)

  24. I understand Trincity College East is not yet at full strength either.

  25. Agreed.
    Pres San F’do will really br a force to be reckon with on the return of their players

  26. I saw CIC in the opening. I am very impressed. They are the most organized team I have seen so far

  27. That Etham Shim fellah looks like a prospect to me too. St Mary’s is the best team I saw so far. But I still have to see Arima.
    And the south teams will be better when W Connection returns from Italy with their players.

  28. Interesting that no one is commenting on CIC’s early form

  29. Yea…I in shock. I saw them in a pre season match just before the season started and I found they looked poor. They clearly found their way now

  30. Never hear about him but kudos on his first 2 wins

  31. It’s John Henry. He was the assistant coach of the relegated ElDo Blue. He only came in this year. Before him was the PE teacher at Compre

  32. Kester Lendor is that old kiss meh ass principal we had that cause Gray to leave. Anyway anybody know who is the coach of Arima?

  33. Kester Lendor I supporting the blue hawks now…no hating on Aaron Pollard either.

  34. hmmmm… dat sound like an undercover “gun talk” shot dey Kester.. Kester Lendor… wha is dat one Lasana Liburd? lol
