Trinity Shield: Late Grouville win completes semi-final line-up

Charlie Petulla

Striker Charlie Petulla netted a last-gasp winner to fire Grouville into Jersey's Trinity Shield semi-finals with a 3-2 win over St Clement.

Carl Hinds had given St Clement a second-half lead, but Petulla equalised with 19 minutes to go.

In a topsy-turvy ending, Calvin Weir netted to put St Clement ahead but Henry Le Maistre levelled soon after.

Petulla's 88th-minute second goal gave Grouville the lead for the first time and sent them through to the semis.

They will now face last season's Shield winners St Lawrence, who thumped St Ouen 14-1 in their quarter-final.

The other semi-final will see St Saviour take on Trinity on Thursday.

The annual tournament over the festive period pits parishes from across the island against each other in a knock-out format.

Players represent the parish they were born into or live in.
