QPCC retains Men’s Open, Mixed Vets hockey titles
Queen’s Park Cricket Club made a successful defence of their Men’s Open and Mixed Veterans titles when the 16th annual Ventures Hockey Club Invitational Indoor Hockey Tournament concluded at the Woodbrook Youth Facility, Hamilton-Holder Street, Woodbrook on Sunday night.
In the men’s final, the Parkites got a goal each from national women’s team coach Jerazeno Bell, Jordan Reynos, Darren Cowie and Stefan Mouttet to secure a come-from-behind 4-3 win over Defence Force.
The “Teteron Men” took the lead in the seventh minute through T&T international Mickell Pierre while team-mate Marcus James made it 2-0 three minutes later before Bell pulled a goal back for the Parkites in the 11th.
James then restored Defence Force’s two-goal cushion in the 16th, but national out-door defender Jordan Reynos cut the advantage in the 17th for a 3-2 half-time scoreline.
With minutes left in the match, national outdoor team captain Darren Cowie drew the Parkites level and with two minutes left, Stefan Mouttet banged in the decisive item.
Queen’s Park had a much easier time in the Mixed Veterans decider as national senior men’s indoor team coach Raphael Govia netted seven times in a 12-3 come-from-behind demolition of Defence Force.
Govia got his items in the fourth, fifth, ninth, 23rd, 27th, 31st and 33rd minutes while Rob Wyatt (4th & 38th) and Gary Chin (24th & 35th) added two each, while former National Security Minister Gary Griffith chipped in with the other in the 36th. For the Defence Force Anthony Morales got a double in the third and 20th, and former T&T standout, Nicholas Wren, the third item in the 25th.
And in the Women’s Open Division, Paragon used a late rally to beat host club, Ventures 3-2 for a second title in three years.
After a tense first-half, guest player and T&T international Krizia Layne opened the scoring for Ventures which lasted until the 27th minute when Australia-based Alanna Lewis drew Paragon level.
A minute later Keima Gardiner fired Paragon ahead and Kristin Thompson made it 3-1 in the 29th before Layne added second for ventures in the 33rd.
