Mavs are U-17 champs


Share post:

KEMAR JOHN’S 20-minute double capped off an inspired display from Mavericks Fire as they triumphed 3-1 over Pro Shottas United in the Under-17 final of the Barbados Football Association’s National Youth Cup Tier 1 finals on Saturday at the Wildey Turf.

Mavericks handed the advantage to their opponents with an own goal, but a vastly improved second-half performance helped them to the trophy.

In the Under-15 final, Pro Shottas squeezed out a slender 1-0 win over Pinelands United, who boasted the inclusion of a handful of national Under-15 selectees. However, Aaron Cumberbatch’s lobbed solo effort in the 27th minute was all the Shottas needed to seal the victory.

Jaheim Neblett was unlucky to convert into his own net in the 26th minute, but for Pro Shottas, it was the only grace they would receive from Mavericks.
