Signal Hill stop St Mary’s to advance to Intercol “Semis”


An 82nd minute  strike by Signal Hill Secondary attacker Jalanie James settled a tight Coca Cola National Intercol quarterfinal affair this evening at Plymouth, where the Tobago powergouse held off St Mary’s College 1-0. The result sent them into the semi finals where they will meet San Juan Secondary from 3:30pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium on Thursday.

On the “Sister Isle,” it took just one error exploited by canny predatory awareness to make all the difference.

And James was right on the spot to take advantage with a downward header across the goal-line.

In Thursday’s second game of the semi-final double header, Shiva Boys Hindu College will face San Juan North Secondary from 5:30pm at the Home of Foootball in Couva.
