BIGGEST crowd of the tournament so far, saw St. Mary's College, schoolboy soccer champions of Trinidad, gain their second victory of the tour last night at Sabina Park, as they defeated Munro College, DaCosta Cup winners, by three to nil.

There was never any doubt as to the superiority of the visiting team.

The Trinidadians repeated the high standard of play they showed on the opening night when they defeated Manning Cup champions, Kingston College, by a similar margin.

The accurate shooting of their forwards and the fast and clever pattern of attach, plus a very sound defence were the outstanding features of their victory.

Two of the three goals came in the first half from the boots of inside left, Richard Neives. Both were neatly placed shots. The goals were scored in the fourth and twenty-seventh minutes.

Centre forward Mahon put in the third goal in the thirty-fifth minute.

The Munronians had no pattern, and though they tried hard, were not good enough for the Trinidadians.
