Baracus does it for St Michael


Share post:

DARIUS “BARACUS” GASKIN was the saving grace for St Michael, winning his third Under-21 National Sports Council’s Inter-Parish road tennis title at the Wildey Gymnasium Sunday night.

The former Coleridge & Parry schoolboy showed the stuff champions are made of with a marvellous fight back to beat defending champion Emar Edwards of St George, 21-23, 21-19, 21-14 and give traditional powerhouses St Michael a consolation crown after they failed to win either the “A” or “B” class titles.

In the night’s first final, St George’s pair Kertman Yearwood and Terry “Puncher” Dottin won the Masters title by sweeping aside St James in both singles to take the first prize of $5000 and Digicel mobile phones.

Yearwood, using his chops and sliced injections with telling effect, slaughtered Edwin “Dark Man” Ward 18-21, 21-9, 21-6 as he handed him two straight ‘piglets’.
