Much like their lady counterparts some weeks ago during the Donnie and Mary Knowles Soccer Jamboree championship last month, the Lucaya International Buccaneers and Bishop Michael Eldon Warriors’ senior boy squads needed extra time to determine a champion.
The Grand Bahama Secondary School Athletic Association: Arthur Paris/Mary Nabb senior boys’ soccer championship came to a climax this past Wednesday at the St. George’s soccer field.
The Warriors and Bucs put on a thrilling performance in regulation and in overtime tied at 1-1.
The hero in the extra period happened to be the Bucs’ Nick Lane, who found the back of the net on the go-ahead attempt at goal to lift the Bucs to a 2-1 victory.
The Most Valuable Player Award, however, was awarded to the Bucs’ Cameron Chandler.
While the senior boys’ championship was determined, the junior boys championship picture became clearer at the conclusion of that division’s semi-final round. The Bucs took on the Eight Mile Rock Blue Jays, while the Warriors faced off against the Jack Hayward Stars.
In the end, another LIS/BMES championship match was determined as both squads overcame their respective opponents.
The Bucs held off the Blue Jays to walk away with a 1-0 victory. Likewise, the Warriors blanked the Stars 1-0 to advance to yesterday’s championship contest. The results of that championship game was not known up to press time. That game also took place at the St. George’s soccer field.
