New MILO football champs to be crowned today

first_imgCHRISTIANBURG/Wismar Secondary School (CWSS) and Lodge Secondary will battle today for the prestigious MILO schools football title. The duo emerged via different methods in the semifinal stages.In the first game, eventual winners Christianburg/Wismar were made to work for their win against Annandale Secondary.In spite of Andre Mayers’ 7th-minute goal which initially proved to be the deciding factor, Annandale had several good chances.The tenacity of the Linden-based goalkeeper kept CWSS in the money, as they move closer to the grandest stage of the tournament.In the other game, Lodge’s railroading effort put President’s College to the sword. The Georgetown-based side seemed to score at will, netting seven times during the course of the game. A brace on either side of the half from Dorwin George (37th and 76th) led the line with single strikes from Rasheed Roberts (27th), Thurston Gordon (44th), Nicolas Trotman (70th), Leroy Sealey (84th) and Marcus Bamfield (90th).Today’s final will begin at 17:00hrs at the same venue.The tournament is also sponsored by the Ministry of Public Health through its ‘Stop Gender-Based Violence’ campaign.last_img read more
