Hot Peppers thrash Prospect
Hamilton Parish 5 Prospect 1
Ian Coke netted a hat-trick as champions Hamilton Parish advanced comfortably to the semi-finals of the Shield competition at Wellington Oval.
Coke opened the scoring for Parish, Shield winners the last two years, after just four minutes when he drove a left-footed shot into the roof of the net from close game, giving Dennis Joell in the Prospect goal no chance.
Patrick Richardson doubled that lead in the 15th minute when he took a pass on the left side of the penalty box and hammered home a shot that went between the keeper and the near post. Prospect responded a minute later with an equally taken goal when Quinn Simmons’ volley from the edge of the box dipped past Kai Hollis in the Parish goal.
The home side finally did get a third in the 43rd minute when Coke controlled a pass on his chest and then turned and volleyed a shot into the roof of the net from 18 yards.
Parish extended their lead six minutes into the second half when Coke completed his hat-trick with a shot from an angle inside the box.
Parish scored a fifth in the 73rd minute courtesy of a Micah Smith own goal.

Paget 1 Devonshire Colts 9
Devonshire Colts made certain of their place in the semi-finals with a nine-goal hammering of Paget in the opening match at BAA Field. Colts supplied all the scoring as an Ellington Weldon Jr own goal in the 21st minute erased the lead Lozendro Symonds gave them in the 15th minute.
After that it was all one-way traffic as Paul Smith and Terry Foote netted in the 34th and 37th minutes to give Colts a 3-1 lead at the half. Foote scored again in the 60th minute before Smith scored his second two minutes later. Eli Smith, a substitute, then helped himself to two goals in the 72nd and 75th minutes before two more late goals closed out the scoring when Raekwan Hare netted in the 85th minute and Jahi Samuels in the 90th minute.
