Senior School Boys

East 3

West 0

A closer contest than the scoreline suggest, East won the Bermuda Schools Sports Federation (BSSF) All-Star game at the National Sports Centre.

Both teams created goalscoring opportunities in last weekend’s game but it was the East who managed to convert them.

CedarBridge’s Dakai Grant scored on the stroke of half-time finding the far corner of the net.

CedarBridge’s London Steede-Jackson controlled the match for the East and his strike midway through the second half doubled their lead.

Saltus Jebeu Swan sealed the match with a late goal.

Senior School Girls

East 1

West 2

The East took the lead against the run of play through a fierce long range effort from CedarBridge Academy’s Cleshaunay Darrell-Virgil.

The goal did not discourage the West team, however, and they soon levelled the score after Warwick Academy’s Kerri Furbert outpaced the East backline before calmly slotting the ball past the keeper.

Berkeley’s Rayni Maybury was behind every attack for the West and she earned MVP status after scoring the winner for her side.

MSA’s Chelsea Harvey had a fine game in the East goal, and her MVP performance kept the East squad in the match.

Middle School Boys

East 2

West 0

The East opened the score through Clearwater’s big striker Zenawi Bowen, but were held at bay for most parts thanks in large part to Saltus’ Nathan Trott who made many outstanding saves in the West goal earning him MVP status.

The frustrated East team finally found a way past him through a brilliant free kick from match MVP Azende Furbert of Whitney.

Middle School Girls

East 0

West 4

The Middle School girls game was a one-sided affair with the West earning an easy victory over the East team.

The West got two goals from Sandys Deshae Darrell and team-mate and Dahja Greaves, the MVP, also found the back of the net.

West captain Eva Frazzoni from Saltus scored the other.

Primary School Boys

East 3

West 1

After years of losing agonisingly close matches the East finally prevailed in the Primary School Boys game to defeat the West in an entertaining match.

The East got to goals in quick succession from MVP Kanfari Swan of Northlands.

The West got into a deeper hole after Somersfield Academy’s Diego Richardson extended the East’s lead.

The West made a spirited effort in the second half but could only manage one goal through MVP T’ahje Smith of West Pembroke.

Primary School Girls

East 1 (4)

West 1 (2)

The first half of this encounter was dominated by the East with Francis Patton’s diminutive striker Jadae Steede-Hill causing all sorts of problems for the West defence.

The deadlock was broken on the stroke of half-time through Steede-Hill.

The West fought back impressively in the second half and were rewarded an equaliser through Xah-Nayia Lopez-Gibbons of West Pembroke.

Neither team could find the net again, with the East winning 4-2 on penalty kicks. West Pembroke’s Nia Christopher was named the West MVP while Le Lanni Nesbeth from St David’s Primary claimed the honours for the East side.
