Den Amstel’s Andre Hector single handedly led his side to a crushing 6-2 win over Wales United when play in the Trophy Stall / West Demerara Football Association (WDFA) Under-17 league continued at the Den Amstel Community Centre Ground this past weekend.
Hector, the leading marksman of the tournament which is two weeks old has taken his tally to 8 overall so far having also netted a double when his team brushed aside Young Achievers of Pouderoyen on the first weekend of play.
Against Wales, Hector who has exhibited a penchant for scoring, netted in the 17th, 18th, 26th, 48th, 68th and 89th minute. Netting for Wales were Levi Anthony (42) and Sherwin Bernard in the 55th.
Also recording victories on the weekend were Stewartville which edged fellow Stewartville based Eagles FC 2-1.
On Saturday, Seawall won via the walk over route from Stewartville, Uitvlugt hammered Young Achievers 5-2, while Eagles soared to a convincing 5-1 win over the whipping boys of the tournament so far Wales.
Leading Eagles to victory was Juel Stephens who netted a hat-trick (8, 47, 76) with one each off the boots of Jason Carrol (55) and Stephan Griffith (71). Pulling one back for Wales was William Mundon in the 20th minute.
Uitvlugt’s Mark Evelyn and Dellon Lanferman scored a double each in their triumph over Young Achievers; Evelyn hit the net work in the 1st and 5th minute, while Lanferman was on target in the 39th and 50th minute. Jamal Harvey sealed the deal on the stroke of full time. Lexroy Mansfield (35) and Marvin Frank (41) sought to pull things back for Young Achievers but their efforts were not able to stave off the rampant Uitvlugt youths.
