Inset: Samuel Elis collecting his prize from the Dir. of Sporting Activities on the ASB, Mr. Joshua Remy

It’s here again! At last, the return of the beautiful game to our great institution. Football, lovely football made its return to the USC Savannah today, October 4th, 2017 as the Dr. Trevor Gardner Football League. Opening day rekindled the flames of a heated rivalry as the School of Science and Technology took on the School of Theology in what was expected to be a close encounter.
With kick-off slated for 3:05, line-ups were soon drawn  and the start of a new season  commenced. First half drama was soon on full display as fans were graced with an early goal scored from the open play of midfielder Samuel Elis after a fluent move. This was to be the order of the day as the men from Science and Technology saw much of the ball during the first half.  Two others were added through McKuelan Morris and Kelson Charles before the break. Theology’s problems soon compounded as they lost their goalkeeper to a dislocated finger just prior to the first half whistle.
The flood gates were seemingly opened after the interval as Sci Tech continued to dominate possession, frequently exposing the opposition’s clear defensive woes and soon hammered home their advantage again through Elis and Charles respectively. Theology showed more fight in the second period, but to no avail as the game ended six goals to nil in favour of Science and Technology with Elis claiming the accolades as the game’s most valuable player.
A brilliant start to a league campaign for Science and Technology and bitter loss for the reigning champions of the league’s sister tournament.
