Junior football finals set for Flora Duffy Stadium
The fifth annual Gregory Grimes and Leonard DeRosa Holder Youth Football Finals will be held tomorrow at the Flora Duffy main field at the National Sports Centre.
The two tournaments honour former long-standing executive members of the Bermuda Football Association who have passed away.
PHC will face FC Bascome in the Under-13 Gregory Grimes final at 2pm.
PHC blanked North Village 3-0 to reach the final after Kalen Brunson led the Zebras with two goals with Harlem Bean Fox adding the third.
FC Bascome fought back from a 2-0 half-time deficit to overcome Dandy Town 3-2 in the other semi-final. Ramsey Souter scored twice while Mosias Mills scored from the penalty spot to secure FC Bascome’s passage to their first Gregory Grimes final.
FC Bascome will again feature in the Under-15 Leonard DeRosa Holder final when they take on Warwick Archers at 4pm. Both teams easily cruised into the finals with comprehensive victories.
Archers, the defending champions, dispatched Somerset Cricket Club 5-0 as Zias Smith led the charge with a brace while Edward Perinchief Ingham, Alexander Lipinski, and Paris Robinson each added single strikes.
Nijae Aberdeen scored a hat-trick to lead FC Bascome 6-0 over Vasco. Thomas Elison, James Morrison and Enoch Joseph also got on the score sheet.
The first match of the finals day will feature Southampton Rangers and Vasco Youth Programme in the Under-13 B final. Four different goal scorers contributed to Southampton Rangers’ 4-2 win over Devonshire Colts in the first semi-final as Kyah Richardson, Josiah Smith, Qash Lambert and Mahki Wilson were all on target for Rangers. River Curtis and Cairo Tucker scored for Devonshire Colts.
Vasco booked their place in the final with a 3-1 win over FC Bascome Gold in their semi-final. Connor Redcliff was on target twice for Vasco with Max Kimberley adding the third. Aiden Cumberbatch scored FC Bascome’s lone goal.
The Under 17 Charles Marshall Final will be a repeat of last year's final. Warwick Archers will look to avenge last year's 4-2 loss to PHC when both teams square off at a date yet to be confirmed.
Warwick Archers overcame Dandy Town and the harsh elements to win 2-0 with goals from Cody Robinson and Tajai Goater.
PHC reached the final after defeating Somerset 1-0 with Nyrico Swan scoring the game's only goal.
