– Puerto Rico Islanders win final
Puerto Rico Islanders defeated Haiti’s Tempete FC 3-1 in overtime in the final of the North and American Caribbean Football Union Club Championship last evening, at the Guyana National Stadium.
On target for the winners was Jonathan Fana, who netted a double, while Jay Needham scored the other goal. Tempete FC goalscorer was unavailable up to press time.
In the playoff for third place, Guyana’s Alpha United created history beating Trinidad and Tobago’s Defence Force on sudden death penalty kicks after regulation and overtime failed to break the 1-1 deadlock. This is the first time any team from Guyana have reached this far in the CONCACAF Champions League qualifying tournament.
Scoring for Alpha United was Dwight Peters, who gave the hosts the lead in the 50th minute of play, while Richard Roy responded for the visitors in the 58th minute.
President Bharrat Jagdeo and PPP Presidential candidate Donald Ramotar visited the victorious Alpha United team in the presence of Club President Odinga Lumumba and they thanked the team for doing a splendid job in progressing to the next stage, while taking Guyana’s football to a higher level.
Coach Wayne Dover in his comments said that the win must be dedicated to Lumumba, who he referred to as someone that has sacrificed a lot for the team which is now the undisputed champions of Guyana.
Speaking about the performance of the team, Dover pointed out that it was a disciplined display and he was pleased with the players’ performance and is excited about moving deeper into the competition.
Ramotar in his remarks congratulated the team for its success, while urging them to reap more in the coming engagements. He called on them to continue to entertain the country with their brand of football and do Guyana proud.
