Sunburst Camptown and Victoria Kings also win
By Franklin Wilson
Front runners Alpha ‘The Hammer’ United has maintained their unbeaten run following a come from behind 2-1 win over upstarts and hosts Rosignol United when competition in the Guyana Football Federation Super League continued yesterday.
Also in winner’s row was Seawall FC by the odd goal in three against home team Liquid Gold of Bartica and at the GCC ground in the city, Sunburst Camptown got past Buxton United while Victoria Kings thumped Milerock both teams winning by similar 2-0 margins.
Gladwin Johnson had eased Rosignol United into the lead against Alpha who leveled the score through a Wendell St. Hill strike. When it looked like the game was going to end at 1-1, senior statesman Abassi McPherson had other ideas as he rocked the nets one minute into added on time (90+1) to seal full points for the leaders who now move to 17 points and are assured on a final four spot. Rosignol remains on 9 points.
Up at the Bartica Community Centre ground, West Demerara based Seawall FC took the lead against Liquid Gold through substitute Clement Browne’s 31st minute effort six minutes after his introduction to the game.
Liquid Gold fired back in the 58th minute when Whitney Welcome’s well taken shot from just outside the 18 yard area sailed into the back of the nets. But Browne again was instrumental in sealing the game Seawall’s way when he was fouled in the box. Darivs Garraway stepped up to take the shot and made no mistake in making it count in the 67th minute.
Sunburst Camptown taking on Buxton United in the feature game at GCC were held up but never threatened as they romped to a 2-0 win. Lance Rolston in the 43rd minute and Telson McKinnon in the 70th were the players inking their names on the score sheets in the 80 minute encounter.
The time was reduced for both games due to the late arrival of one of the teams due to no fault of theirs. Nigel Codrington, while not scoring impacted on the outcome of the encounter, his experience and nimble footwork proved to be too much for the young Buxtonians to handle at times.
Camptown again were guilty of slacking up in the attacking third but the Buxton custodian Brian Robinson also thwarted many of their attempts on goal. The opening game saw East Demerara’s Victoria Kings producing a solid win over Upper Demerara’s leading side, Milerock.The game battle saw the deadlock as regards scoring being broken until the 63rd minute when Rashleigh Morrison buried his shot from the penalty spot. That lead was doubled in the final minute of regulation time when Donald Lutchman who had missed a penalty against Camptown one week ago, made good on his promise to make up this time around. He put away his shot with ease after getting past the defence of Milerock and their keeper, Michael Rose.
