Paul Babb registered a brace in the 4th and 7th minute and was emulated by Kevin Lewis in the 11th and 18th to lead the Guyana Defense Force into the next round when action in the Georgetown Football Association/National Sports Commission (NSC) Futsal football tournament continued at the National Gymnasium, Mandela Avenue Tuesday evening last.
Those efforts coupled with goals off the boot of Winston Tanner (14), Royon Morrison (16) and Eusi Phillips were decisive in a 7-0 drubbing by the soldiers over Thomas United.
The preceding match between Beacon FC and Camptown FC ended 2-1 in favour of the former team after Daniel Favorite stitched in the first goal for Beacons in the 4th minute. The Beacons squad held that advantage up until Peter Parks thundered down the right wing and plastered the opposition goalie 6 minutes into the second half to level the score.
That strike also ensured the game went into extra time when Orvil Milton sealed the issue with a humdinger way outside the box. Meanwhile, Police won by default after Riddim Squad failed to show up for their match.
The former team still got in some practice when it opposed Houston Stars in an exhibition affair which the latter team won 2-1. Another exhibition match between Lodge All stars and YMCA ended 2-1 in favour of the latter team.
The action is expected to reach fever pitch when the tournament continues tonight with several exciting matches. The first match pits the skills of Georgetown Football Club (GFC) up against Black Pearl followed by defending Fruta champions, Flamingo attempting to enforce their dominance over Thomas Unitedd. Alpha ‘The Hammer’ United will then face off with Houston Stars before Fruta Conquerors play the University of Guyana. The GDF will round off the night’s activities when it tackles Charlestown.
The tournament got underway on June 21st last and will conclude on July 17 next. All teams affiliated to the GFA are involved in the competition.
