St Augustine Secondary’s Rivaldo Patron

TRYING FOR GOAL: St Augustine Secondary’s Rivaldo Patron, centre, attempts a shot while surrounded by three Carapichaima East Secondary opponents during their Shell/First Citizens Secondary Schools Football League Premier Division match at Warren Street, St Augustine, yesterday. The match finished in a 2-2 draw.

Amir Simmons thought he had rescued a precious point for Malick Secondary when he scored from the penalty spot in the last minute of regulation time. But Seon Shippley left Simmons and his mates in despair when he scored in the fourth minute of added-on time to steal all three points for Naparima College yesterday afternoon.

The last-gasp 2-1 win at their Lewis Street base ensured that defending champions “Naps” remained at the top of the Premier Division standings in the Secondary Schools Football League.

Earlier, Nathaniel Prouse had given the home team the lead in the second half, one which seemed to have been enough until the late Malick equaliser. Then Shippley came up trumps for Naps with his third goal in four matches.

The win kept Naparima a point ahead of southern rivals Presentation College who blanked St Benedict’s College 4-0 at the Manny Ramjohn Stadium.
