The West Ham United Under-17 side thrashed Bermuda Select 5-1 in the Bermuda International Football Festival at Goose Gosling Field yesterday.

The visiting side, who drew 1-1 with Bermuda Under-19 in their festival opener on Monday, opened up a two-goal lead at the interval thanks to some clinical finishing from forward Evan Khouri.

They struck again early in the second half when Bermuda Select defender Seth Somner was caught in possession allowing forward Emmanuel Longelo to steam in and sweep the ball home from close range.

Bernando Rosa, playing as a withdrawn striker, extended West Ham’s lead on the hour mark crashing home a bouncing ball beyond substitute goalkeeper Shaquille Trott.

Anouar El Mhassani missed a good opportunity for West Ham, forcing a fine save from Trott, while at the other end Donovan Thompson, a second-half substitute, saw an effort blocked and Jahiem Iris dragged a shot wide.

West Ham added a fifth when substitute Kyle McGeachy’s effort took a wicked deflection off Somner before ballooning over the outstretched arms of Trott.

Bermuda Select pulled a goal back when substitute midfielder Calin Maybury powered home a free kick late on.
