(SNO) – Blackheart 2018 has commenced with Vieux Fort South and Laborie qualifying from the Southern Zone following victories in the Blackheart football warm-up qualifiers.
They will now advance to the Big Eight which will take place at a date and venue to be decided.
The Southern Zonal preparation was contested amongst three teams namely, Vieux Fort North, Vieux Fort South and Laborie. Matches were of 45 minutes duration.
In the first encounter Vieux Fort South got the better of their northern neighbours 6-5 following the dreaded penalty shootout. At the end of regulation time the score was 0-0.
In game two, Laborie edged out Vieux Fort North 1-0 with a goal by Jason Edwin.
In the day’s final encounter Vieux Fort South got the better of Laborie 2-0. Their goals were scored by Antonius Myers and San Savery.
By all indications the teams looked rusty on the day, though Laborie appeared to have done some preparatory work.
The next zonal preparation involving the Eastern teams will get underway on Saturday, August 4, 2018 in Mabouya.
