Empire’s striker Zinio Harris was in fine form during match day 15 of the Barbados Football Association’s Capelli SuperCup, securing a beaver trick on the night to lead the Mighty Blues to an 8-0 draw over Whitehall Titans.
In the nightcap game at the Wildey Turf, play began slowly and at the end of the first 45 minutes, Harris was the only scorer having pocketed in the sixth minute.
The Bank Hall team returned and as early as the 48th, Harris struck again off a corner kick by Brazilian Daniel Calvi, before he once again pocketed from just outside the box eight minutes later.
Seven minutes later, Jabarry “Papi” Chandler, who had squandered a lot of his chances throughout the night, was finally able to get his name on the scorecard, when he beat the Titans’ keeper and volleyed his shot into the top of the net at near post.
Harris came back with a superb finish in the 73rd, to bring up his beaver trick of the night and pocket his double hat trick of the tournament. The ball was floated over to Harris by Ramario Clarke, before Harris used his left foot to finish flawlessly into the side netting from the left of the penalty area.
A very confident Clarke secured a brace in the 81st and 85th minutes with passes from Shanoi Evans and substitute Jamali Hutson respectively, before Chandler sealed the deal one minute later and the Titans’ fate heading into the Championship Stage.
Meanwhile, in the earlier game, Brittons Hill played to a 2-0 victory against Technique, with a goalless first half.
While Ishem Ellis must once again be commended for his efforts on the field, he was unable to secure any goals for his team. What should have been a clear goal for Technique was squandered when Michael Burgess’ shot just outside the box went up and over the crossbars.
However, Carl Joseph was the star of the night when he secured a brace for his team in the 51st and 53rd minutes to give Brittons Hill the victory in Group A.
