Saltus Grammar School won both titles at the Bermuda School Sports Federation Primary School Boys’ field hockey tournament at the National Sports Centre yesterday.

A sudden-death overtime goal from Zackary McGuire helped Saltus lift the A Division title with a 2-1 win over rivals Warwick Academy.

Nayan Grant had given Warwick an early lead in the final before Nick Southern tied the game up late in regulation time.

McGuire then stepped up to score the winner with a long-range effort.

It was Warwick who needed to come from behind to win their semi-final over Gilbert Institute. Zachary Brown gave Gilbert an early lead before Warwick scored twice in the last two minutes to seal a final berth.

Warwick’s goals came from the sticks of Grant and Xavi Derosa. Saltus had a much easier path to the final after defeating East End Primary 4-0 in their semi-final.

James Morrison led the Knights with two goals, while Essien Binns and McGuire added one each. All of the semi-finalists cruised past their opponents in the quarter-finals with shutout victories.

The champions got past Somersfield Academy with goals from Binns and Southern. Brown scored a hat-trick to lead Gilbert over Heron Bay Primary 3-0.

Grant, Derosa and Rory Fleming scored a goal each for Warwick in their 3-0 win over Francis Patton. East End defeated East Zone foes Harrington Sound Primary 3-0, with two goals from Ia’yah Pitcher and one from Roydon Grant.

Saltus Whites cruised to the gold medal in the B Division. A six-team, round-robin format was used to determine the B Division champions.

Saltus cruised to the title with four wins and a draw. Saltus had a 5-0 win over Harrington Sound before beating Gilbert, Saltus Reds and Somersfield Academy by the same 3-0 scoreline. Their only blemish was a 0-0 draw with runners-up Warwick Academy. Warwick got wins over Somersfield, 2-0, Harrington Sound, 4-1, and Gilbert, 5-0.

Saltus Reds did their school-mates a favour by drawing 1-1 with Warwick and securing the title for Saltus Whites.
