Stag Beer / WDFA League …Den Amstel remains unbeaten; Seawall FC maul Nismes/Bagotsville
The inaugural Stag Beer sponsored West Demerara Football Association Senior League continued on Sunday last at the Den Amstel Ground with double header action; home team Den Amstel recorded their second win in as many matches while Seawall FC rebound from defeat to maul debutants Nismes/Bagotsville 13-1.
Having defeated Seawall FC in their first game of the season 3-1, Den Amstel replicated that performance against Stewartville, suffering their 2nd loss in as many matches.
Paul Payne sent the home team ahead in just the 5th minute with the advantage being doubled in the 28th minute compliments of a Jeffrey Pereira goal. Stewartville, led by the seasoned campaigner Owen McGarrell narrowed the lead in the 40th minute when McGarrell rocked the nets.
The second half continued to produce competitive football but the home team did not want to keep their opponents too close so they restored the 2-goal cushion in the 78th minute when Keyon Warde found the back of the nets. Final score, Den Amstel 3 Stewartville 1.
Seawall FC did not waste any time in imposing their will and experience on debutants Nismes/Bagotsville scoring the first goal two minutes into the games, Gadi Hoyte the player on target.
The early strike sent the signal that Seawall were not going to spare their opponents and that promises they kept to the very end, rocking the nets on 13 occasions. Rawle Haynes blasted a helmet-trick, hitting the network in the 11th, 34th, 51st and 79th minute.
There were a brace each for Mark Boyce (25, 77) and Andy Gillis (66, 81). The other players inking their names on the score sheets were Marlon Agard – an own goal – in the 16th minute, Julius Griffith (37), Keron Boyce (53) and Sherwin Liverpool (53).
Four more matches will be contested this Saturday and Sunday with double headers on each day.
