Bridgeport High advanced to the semi-finals of the ISSA-FLOW Walker Cup knockout competition with an easy commanding 2-0 win over Denham Town High at the Constant Spring Complex yesterday. Shane Moodie sealed the victory in the 90th minute with a brilliant goal after Javaughn Dunn had headed the Portmore-based school in the lead in the 40th minute. Moodie’s goal was one of the best seen in urban area schoolboy football this season. He made a good run down the left before controlling a peach of a cross from Ronaldo Banks on his chest. He then struck a ferocious volley which rocketed into the roof of the Denham Town net to end the game in style. It was the midfielder’s second goal of the season. “So far, I have scored two goals; this one is very special because I helped to send the team to the semi-finals in the Walker Cup, so this is a blessing to score on this day,” he said. Winning coach Garnett Lawrence was elated with the victory. “It wasn’t one of our best games of the season, but when you come to a knockout, it’s a knockout, so we give God thanks for the victory, and we will just press on for the next game,” he said. Meanwhile, Denham Town’s coach Andrew Edwards said his team “deviated from our game and paid the price”.
