GCC draw with All Greys 3-3 in a fiery showdown at Bourda
The heat was on from the sound of the opening whistle with continuous
attacks by both teams hoping to open the score sheets and go forward.
But in the end the pair held onto to drum out a 3-3 stalemate after the furious exchanges.
The All Greys pressed hard into the Bourda Boys’ half and capitalized on a defensive error with a counter attack that saw Azad DeAbreu’s shot in the 3rd Minute finding the back of the goal to take the score to 1-0.
However, immense pressure displayed by the Bourda Boys broke through the All Grey’s defence and Mark Sargeant in the 8th Minute finished with a all out dive to deflect a ball which slipped past Goalkeeper Whitehead and leveled the score 1-1.
The attack continued with both teams sharing almost equal possession of the ball. It was the Bourda Boys who edged forward once more to 2-1 when Keon McKenzie in the 21st minute tapped in a slick pass from Stuart Gonsalves which had beaten the veteran defenders.
The second half began with the same pace and intensity and it was the veterans who took the score to 2-2 with a blistering shot by Azad DeAbreu in the 42nd Minute.
The Bourda Boys responded with the same sly stick-work when Meshach Pierre worked his way down the wings of the field and passed a ball to Patrick Edghill in the 54th minute who hammered his shot into the back of the Nets to take the game to 3-2.
With the game on the edge of completion, the veterans fought on and Azad DeAbreu drew the score once more in the 59th Minute with his shot which deflected off of the keeper’s glove into the back of the goal.
This adds another draw and an exciting match for the John Fernandes 2nd Division League.
