North Village Reds 6 Vasco da Gama 0

North Village Reds virtually had things all their own way in a resounding 6-0 win over Vasco da Gama in the Gregory Grimes Under-13 Tournament Plate Final at the Clyde Best Centre for Excellence last night.

Village took the lead in the fifth minute when Vasco defender Matthew Troake turned Zaedyn Philpott’s low cross from the right-hand side into his own net.

Sa-Qui Robinson then slotted home Malik Paynter’s through pass to double Village’s advantage in the 20th minute.

Chazz Manning made it 3-0 three minutes later when he ran onto another through pass, rounded Vasco goalkeeper Jai Simmons and stroked the ball into the empty net from an angle.

Nakai Smith added a fourth in the 30th minute from close range after Vasco failed to clear their lines to leave his team firmly in the driver’s seat at the interval.

Village picked up where they left off as Philpott’s left-footed blast from outside of the box flew into the roof of the net in the first minute of the second half.

D-Ari Coddington then capped Village’s dominant display when he scored from a shot from inside of the area.

“I was happy with the performance, we stuck to the game plan,” Reeve Young, the Village coach, said. “Sometimes winning games we get complacent. But I told the players it’s a final and so we have to play our football, which they did.”

Chris Smith, the Vasco coach, praised his side’s second-half display.

“I think we got a little nervous but second half we pushed and were really good,” he said.

Village’s Jayus Dill was voted as the man of the match.
