SLFA Secondary Schools Football Festival Ends


In recognition of Women Football Month under the theme Let Them Play, the SLFA Inc. staged a successful Secondary Schools Football Festival on Thursday 16th November at the Soufriere Mini Stadium.

A total of 13 Secondary Schools participated with the Micoud Secondary fielding two teams.
Following a dipping process, the teams were placed in two groups where they engaged in a
single round robin format.

Matches were nine a side with roll on and roll off substitution and were of 10 minutes duration with no half time.

At the end of the preliminary round, Vieux Fort Comprehensive Secondary and The St. Lucia Sports Academy topped their respective groups.

In the finals the Sports Academy defeated Vieux Fort Comprehensive 1 – 0 to be crowned winners.

At the conclusion of the Festival trophies were awarded to the following schools.

Fourth Place – Soufriere Comprehensive

Third Place – Leon Hess Comprehensive

Second Place – Vieux Fort Comprehensive

First Place – St. Lucia Sports Academy

This is the second year the Festival has been staged, with Leon Hess Comprehensive winning the inaugural one.

However, this time around, one witnessed, not only a vast improvement in schools participation, but also an increase in the number of participants from the respective schools.

This was coupled with a high quality of skills displayed. Congratulations to everyone.
