BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, May 1 (By Cable).—Trinidad forwards went on a goal-scoring spree when they opposed a combined second division team at Kensington this afternoon and gave them a 9-one lacing in the one-sided game.

Oliver (Sackie) Govia headed the goal-scoring parade for the tourists, ramming home four goals in the hour's play.

Rex Burnett, clever Notre Dame inside left, crashed the nets three times, while Bertie Thompson and the speedy Nattie Sealy each scored a goal for the winners.

At no time was the homesters' defence able to withstand the clever Trinidad attacks, and the game, more or less, served as a shooting practice for the first Colony game on Thursday.
