Amber Penn pulled one back for ESHS early in the second half before D’Arion Williams restored the two goal advantage for BFEC. Penn then scored again with ten minutes remaining to set up a nervous last few moments, but BFEC ran out worthy winners.
SDA made the trip to BFEC on the following Thursday, February 20th, 2014, to face the Begrado Flax girls and found them in rampant mood.
Despite missing the chance to grab two goals early the SDA defence was handed a torrid time by the free running Brittany Peters and the cool finishing of Rigobert.
The game was turned on its head half way through the first period when Rigobert latched onto a loose ball in the SDA penalty area to fire home, giving Keeper Esther St Lot no chance. Rigobert doubled the lead moments later, before a brace from Brittany Peters and one from Tia Modeste made the half time score 5-0.
SDA re formed in the second half to put up a spirited fight, but could find no way past a solid BFEC defense and with Peters, a National team Goal Keeper, again proving a handful upfront the score line became a rout.
Peters managing to find the net twice more to complete a four goal haul and make the final score 7-0.
Back in the Boys U14’s BFEC bounced back from the earlier defeat by ESHS to beat Cedar International 4-0 with first half goals from Elian O’Neal giving BFEC a comfortable lead at half time, before an own goal and a strike from Shamoi Dore in the second half completed the win.
