USC football team off to a winning start

Game 1: USC vs SBCS

A seven-goal thriller it was; seven great goals.

When the dust settled, however, one team had scored 5 goals and the other scored 2. This was what transpired at the opening game of Tertiary Sports Association of Trinidad and Tobago's (TSATT) 2018 Football Competition, on Thursday 11th October at the UWI East Admin. playing field. 

This game between USC HUMMERS and SBCS which began at 7:00 pm was evenly matched for the first 15 minutes of the encounter until USC HUMMERS scored the first of their 5 goals in the 19th minute. The goal came in the 19th minute through a strike from USC's HUMMERS' star forward, Canias Wilson.

By the halftime whistle, USC HUMMERS were comfortably ahead 3 - 0 and were expected to go on a goal spree in the second half of the fixture. SBCS, on the other hand, played with determination to at least make a contest of the game.

Four minutes into the second half, SBCS' hearts were shattered even further as Mr Wilson of USC HUMMERS scored his second of the match. USC HUMMERS became complacent and SBCS, seeing this, went into another gear and with that new vigour were rewarded with the first of their two goals in the 57th minute, making the score, 4 - 1.

USC HUMMERS though would seal the contest by adding a 5th goal two minutes later. With nothing left to play for but pride, SBCS's Kyle Garcia who came on as a second-half substitute would release a rocket of a shot in the 79th minute, from 30 yards out, beating the USC HUMMERS custodian Netuan Burton and settling into the back of the net - "Goal boy; Goal of the match!!!" This ended all scoring, and the match would eventually finish 5 - 2 in favour of USC HUMMERS.
