- Fittest team survived – Garrett
FRESH off their 3-2 penalty shootout win against Morgan’s Learning Centre on Sunday, three-time Milo schools football champions Chase Academic Foundation captain Jeremy Garett has attributed the win to superior fitness on their part.Following a one-goal stalemate after extra time, the Chase side held their nerves to win from the penalty spot, sending fans into jubilation. However skipper Garrett feels that a team effort was also one of the components that led to their victory.“It was a very good performance by each and every individual, I think that the main aspect pertaining to the guys was fitness tonight and it proved a lot because we were fitter than Morgan’s,” the skipper said.He added, “Coming down to the end, they stumbled and we had opportunities later in the game but overall we came out victorious and I thank God.”Chris Macey’s 15-minute beauty into the side netting was cancelled out by a powerful header into the crossbar which deflected down and into the goal by Shemar Smith in the 26th as the side battled for supremacy.Several more chances were skewed wide including Chase’s Job Caesar who missed the chance to convert a difficult ball in the area, in the absence of the goalkeeper, as well as a one-on-one chance for Morgan’s that was directed squarely at the keeper.Nonetheless, at the end of the penalty shootout, it was the Chase side who celebrated their victory as three-time champions. Coach Gordon Henry contended that the unit played to his satisfaction.“We did what we came out to do. We did what we had planned on the training pitch and we executed tonight. Even though we came from a goal down, i think the team stood their ground, stayed focused, played as a unit and did exactly what we did on the training pitch,” the coach said.He added, “We knew the team (Morgan’s) was going to come at us, we knew it was going to be a tough game but we’ve been preparing for months for this. We are just grateful to God for helping us to be three-time champions.”In the third-place game, Masters Academy routed Sir Leon’s Lessons 5-1.Calvin Peters opened the scoring for the winners in the 4th with Omari James slotting home to bring the game level in the 20th minute.The half continued with both teams trading unsuccessful strikes until the whistle.On the return, Tyrone Khan broke the deadlock with a clinical effort into the back of the nets in the 73rd and in the process opened the floodgates.Peters scored two more for the hat-trick (75th and 88th) while Khan completed his brace in the 81st.
