GFF/NAMILCO Thunderbolt Flour Power Nat. U17 ….
BV Triumph United and Victoria Kings joined Mahaica Determinators and Golden Stars as teams taking full points on the weekend when competition in the East Demerara Football Association leg of the GFF/NAMILCO Thunderbolt Flour Power National Under-17 league continued.
Playing at the BV ground, the home team rallied for a 3-2 win over Ann’s Grove. BV it was that took the lead on 10 minutes through a Temar Robinson goal. The remainder of the first half did not produce any more goals which was as a result of balanced football played by both teams. However, play in the second half was more aggressive and resulted in Ann’s Grove drawing level in the 54th minute through a Randy Hamilton goal, the home team would be stunned in the 65th minute when the visitors took the lead compliments of a Shamar Brandon strike.
But some composed football from the BV boys not only saw them cancelling out Ann’s Grove’s advantage but they found the winning goal, all in a two minute burst. Dequan France it was who notched in the equalizer in the 70th minute, while his teammate Omari Glasgow hammered in the winner in the 72nd minute to seal a memorable win.
In the opening match on Sunday, Victoria Kings ruled the roost in their clash with Buxton Stars to win 2-1 on account of a double off the boot of Kareem Josiah in the 2nd and 28th minute. Buxton got their consolation goal from Shemar Scott in the 33rd minute. The young Kings had to pull out all the stops to defend their slim one goal lead to walk away with full points.
On Saturday, Mahaica Determinators trounced Plaisance Panthers 6-0, while Golden Stars got past Bachelors Adventure/Paradise Sports Club 2-0. Matches will continue this weekend.
