Phillip Fernandes had an outstanding season and finished the Guyana Hockey Board of Control's 2003 first division outdoor season as the highest goal scorer.

The Georgetown Cricket Club forward blasted in nine goals in the season to finish ahead of Aderemi Simon of Old Fort who came in second with four goals. Third was Shane Samuels of Everest with three goals.

However, Simon was able to turn the tables on the field in the indoor first division competition. The Old Fort forward finished with nine goals to share the top spot with brother Askofu who also had nine goals.

In the men's second division competition, David Fernandes of The Degener-ates ended with nine goals, while Dion Bradford of Western Dragons had seven successful attempts at the goal.

In the women's outdoor competition Amanda and Marisha Rodrigues flicked in five goals apiece to share the highest goal scorer award.

Treasurer of the board, Ivor Thompson, said that after a long time the board was able to complete all tournaments in a calendar year.

Thompson disclosed that the Guyana Cricket Club (GCC) won the Farfan and Mendes outdoor tournament, Everest Hikers won the female's national outdoor tournament and the Degener-ates was first in the John Fernandes Insurance second division outdoor tournament.

In the two indoor competitions, GCC's women's team won both the GT&T national and the GHBC tournaments. Old Fort won the GT&T men's indoor tournament.

According to Thompson, the GHBC will bring down the curtain on activities for 2003 with a grudge match between The Degenerates, captained by Gregory Sills, and a combined team of players over 30 years.

The match was scheduled for GCC ground yesterday afternoon.
