The 2009 U-19 Round Robin tournament organized by the Guyana Football Association (GFA), in collaboration with DeSinco Trading Ltd which was temporarily aborted late last year, resumed last Saturday morning with Alpha ‘The Hammer’ United and Uprising FC playing to a 3-3 stalemate.
Organizers were forced to put the matches on hold to facilitate the yearly K&S year end football extravaganza. Additionally, the GFA had been deemed an unconstitutional body and was subsequently disbanded.
Following the appointment of Alpha United President, Odinga Lumumba and Western Tigers President, Gordon Gilhuys to head an interim committee, organizers have received the go ahead to resume activities.
Keson Dey netted a double for Uprising in the 33rd and 57th minutes to draw level, while Kimba Braithwaite breached the Alpha custodian in the 46th minute to give them the lead for the first time in the game.
However, earlier, Mikhail Stewart and Noel Russell had put Alpha ahead, while Marcello Yansen equalized the situation for ‘The Hammers’, goals coming in the 4th,15th and 54th minutes, respectively.
Dwayne Greaves of the Uprising FC received marching orders after receiving the second of two yellow cards. The tournament continues next Saturday morning with four matches. The teams and venues would be announced later in the week.
