Saltus Middle School won the over 13 six-a-side championship tournament

Saltus Grammar School dominated school six-a-side tournaments on Tuesday, winning both the Primary School B Championships and the Middle School over-13 competition at the National Sports Centre

In the Primary School tournament, Saltus did not concede a goal and went through the tournament undefeated. Facing Warwick Academy in the final, Chance Franks and Oliver Anderson each scored to lead the Knights to a 2-0 victory.

Saltus had earlier defeated Dalton E. Tucker Primary 4-0 in the semi final largely thanks to a hat-trick by Roman Galglio with Anderson scoring the other. In the other semi-final Gebre Vickers scored twice and Lochlann Muirhead added another to steer Warwick Academy to victory over Francis Patton.

It was a similar story in the Middle School over-13 event as Saltus emphatically beat Whitney Institute Middle school 4-0 in the final with Malik Paynter scoring a hat-trick and Christian Piney adding the fourth.

Paynter also scored in Saltus’s 2-0 semi final win over Somersfield Academy with Carter Thomas also netting. Mheki Wilson scored all three goals in Whitney Institute’s 3-0 semi-final win over Mount Saint Agnes Academy.

The Berkeley Institute green team won the senior girls school six-a-side tournament after beating Warwick Academy 2-0 in the final on Monday.

Keidel Astwood gave Berkeley the perfect start to the final when scoring inside the first minute of the game with Jahni Simmons extending the lead in the second half to seal the victory for the Greens.

The winning side had made it to the final only after surviving a dramatic penalty shoot out against CedarBridge Academy. Berkeley were forced to come from behind twice in the semi-final, with Astwood grabbing both Berkeley goals to cancel out Eva Tuzo’s double strike.

Warwick Academy’s semi-final success was just as exciting with a last-minute own goal from their opponents Saltus Grammar handing them a 2-1 victory. Adriana Argent had given Warwick the lead in the first half with Camryn Lines’s equaliser for Saltus in the second half setting up a thrilling climax to the game .
