The 2017 Blackheart preliminary final got on the way at the scenic La Resource Playing Field in the Mabouya Valley. In the first half, Vieux -Fort North held a comfortable 2-nil lead over Desruisseaux. Kevin Myers netted in the 18th and 28th minute to put the Sheldon Emmanuel led team in front. In the end, those two goals were enough to secure victory for Vieux-Fort North.
The two teams were playing for the final spot in the 2017 Blackheart Knockout Tournament proper, scheduled to kick off on September 16th 2017 at the lovely Phillip Marcellin Grounds in Vieux -Fort South. A number of warm up games have been carded in anticipation of this year’s massive event.
