Waramardong defeats Bartica to advance to next round of Digicel School’s Football Tourney – 24th Jun 2013
In what could be described as one of the best display so far in the Digicel School’s Football Championship Waramardong Secondary inflicted a thrilling 5-2 drubbing on Bartica Secondary as they were crowned region 7 champions on Sunday.
Playing in not so favorable conditions at the Bartica School ground, Waramardong started the ball rolling, scoring two goals and Bartica secondary, 1, from a penalty after a player was fouled in the box in the first half of the game.
Resuming play the Bartica Boys looked more determined to represent their home turf and leveled the score – two all- as they blasted another goal some five minutes into the game’s second half. But Waramaradong Secondary turned up the heat and played like warriors in the wet and soggy conditions scoring three more goals, ending any hope of Bartica boy from advancing to the next round of the tournament.
Stating it was a good game, Coach of Bartica secondary school said the defeat was due to the indiscipline of some of his players.
The two teams were presented with trophies and medals, while bartica was given full sets of gears for finishing second. Waramardong now awaits the winners of the other regions for the regional playoffs. The tournament continues around the country with several games.
