ST MARY’S COLLEGE (CIC) will return to the Premier Division of the Tiger Tanks Secondary School Football League in 2023, having picked up a third win in the Championship Division Big Five playoff on Wednesday.

Also in celebratory mood were Signal Hill Secondary, who won the Tobago Girls’ InterCol title after defeating Bishop’s High 1-0 on Sunday at the Dwight Yorke stadium, while Holy Name Convent are North Zone Girls’ champions after defeating St Joseph’s Convent, Port of Spain, 3-1 at St Mary’s College Ground Wednesday.

GOALKEEPER Jair Buckmire made three crucial saves as St Benedict’s College won a second title of the season when adding the Coca-Cola InterCol South Zone crown to their Tiger Tanks SSFL title they won last month.

St Benedict’s defeated Presentation College (Sando) 4-3 after sudden-death penalty kicks and now move onto Monday’s InterCol quarter-finals phase against Carapichaima East. St Benedict’s still possess a chance of the treble, should they also capture the national IncerCol knockout title.

HAVING successfully qualified Trinidad and Tobago’s “Calypso Girls” for the 2023 netball World Cup, the services of the Tobago-based duo of national coach Kemba Duncan and manager Ashelle Legall, have been terminated just eight months shy of the World Cup.

Duncan’s dismissal makes her the second national coach dismissed by the current Trinidad and Tobago Netball Association (TTNA) administration in just over a year. Former top player Duncan replaced Althea McCollin, who was appointed in August 2021 and terminated shortly after, following a disastrous Tri-Series in Jamaica in September 2021.

Had QRC won, it would have been a surprise.

Given the Royalians’ brittle defending all season, Fatima College’s 5-0 thrashing in yesterday’s Coca-Cola InterCol North Zone final at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, was routine given their second-placed league finish in the 2022 Tiger Tanks Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) last month.

Michael Chaves scored twice, with Jaden Williams, Christian Bailey and Alijah Nunes getting Fatima’s other three goals, while QRC had just one shot on target.

AS much in the dark as most present during Tuesday’s announcement of the return of elite football in Trinidad and Tobago, representatives of the two major leagues are hopeful, but taking a wait and see approach.

Along with representatives from FIFA and CONCACAF and the Sport Ministry through its SportTT financial arm, normalisation committee (NC) chairman Robert Hadad announced the restart of organised football in early 2023 with a transitional league, to be followed by a main, nine-month long competition to be run from September 2023 to May 2024.
