STETHS find groove in 6-0 victory

first_imgWestern Bureau: Michael ‘Diddy’ Kerr struck a four-timer in leading former champions St Elizabeth Technical (STETHS) to an emphatic 6-0 drubbing of Newell High in the ISSA/FLOW daCosta Cup yesterday to overturn Tuesday’s surprise loss to BB Coke and ease pressure on their campaign. Glendon Gopaul and Calvin Campbell were the other scorers for a STETHS team that may have finally found its groove. Kerr, who is coming off an unspecified injury, ran the Newell defence ragged with his power and speed to thrill his school’s supporters. “We know that we can win any game, and although we were under a little pressure before this game, we were confident about getting all the points,” Kerr said. In addition, the young forward said that he is delighted with the four-goal return and that he hopes to continue scoring in order to take STETHS to the next round. “It is a good feeling because I am coming off an injury, so to score so many goals today is wonderful!” the player said. The victory was an important one for STETHS, who entered the contest in fourth position in Group E and were staring up on the likes of Lacovia (10 points), who they will next tackle on Saturday, as well as BB Coke (10), and Maggotty, who remain on five points. Now on eight points, STETHS coach Omar Wedderburn believes they are in a position to finally be challenging for group honours. “We are all about climbing the standings, and honestly, we have a good team that brought us victory,” Wedderburn said. BB Coke meanwhile, showed that their win against STETHS was no fluke by edging Maggotty 1-0 to go joint first in the standings, while the Lacovia versus Munro match was postponed because of rain.
