Teams from all four Harris primary schools contested the annual Crossroads Football Tournament which took place last week in Sir E. Scott School.
As ever, the competition was close with some thrilling games of football being played and as was the case last year, from the four qualifying sections, two Sir E. Scott teams, a Leverburgh and Scalpay team progressed to the semi-finals.
Scalpay Rovers met Leverburgh Lightning in the first semi and it was an exciting game. Leverburgh played very well, However, Scalpay Rovers proved too strong for them, winning 5-0 and progressing to the final.
The second semi was the SES Tigers against the SES Stars and this was an entertaining game with end to end action. However, after taking the lead, SES Tigers went on to lose the match 2-1, with two goals from Andrew Morrison for SES Stars.
The final between the SES Stars and Scalpay Rovers was an enthralling and closely fought game with the Stars taking an early lead and capitalising by scoring another two goals to make it 3-0. Scalpay Rovers did manage to get a consolation goal through Daniel Macleod, but was too late for a comeback and lost 3-1.
In the running for the ‘Player of the Tournament’ Trophy there were a variety of players from all of the school teams who displayed a high level of skill, goal scoring ability and fitness throughout the tournament. However, Daniel’s contribution in terms of goal scoring, with an amazing 24 goals in the tournament, as a member of Scalpay Rovers meant that he would be the recipient of the award this year.
Playing in the final:
SES Stars: Andrew Morrison, Katherine Morrison and Erin Murray.
Scalpay Rovers: James Morrison, Andrew Morrison and Daniel Macleod.
