Conquerors bang Pele 6-2 for third
By Franklin Wilson
It was 30 minutes of pulsating and riveting action which at times had fans at the edges of their seats at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall but it just took a mere 3 minutes to decide the champions of the inaugural Guinness, Georgetown Football Association, Ministry of Culture Youth and Sport, National Sports Commission Futsal competition.
When the final whistle sounded just after 01:00hrs on Sunday morning, massive celebrations broke out as Uprising came out winners over Flamingo 2-1 in what was a memorable match and tournament.
Omoli Nassy was the star of the show for Uprising scoring in the 26th and 28th minutes, Flamingo responding through Dwayne Layne in the 27th minute.
Neither team was able to dominate in any big way, the exchanges equal throughout the encounter barring the goal scoring moments. Flamingo, were handicapped somewhat with their main strike weapon, Leon ‘Zambuly’ Yaw playing with an injury he sustained in their semi-final clash with Pele.
Prior to the final, where he spent lots of time on the bench, it was only in the semi-final that Yaw spent time on the bench.
Uprising came with a plan and executed it to perfection and are deserving winners, the packed house enjoying every moment of the game, booing at times but also applauding when necessary.
The third place match up saw Fruta Conquerors hammering Pele 6-2. Trevon Lythcott scored a double (22, 25), the other players on target were Sheldon Shepherd, Odel Williams, Paul Bobb and Captain Joylon Harry. Okeene Fraser and Solomon Austin netted for Pele
The presentation of prizes is expected to take place sometime later this week. Nassy will lead the individual prize winners after being named MVP of the tournament for his outstanding showing.
A number of exhibition matches were played. Among them, Guinness Bar defeated Sweet point 3-1 and Eagles got the better of Victoria in a female encounter.
