Feb 17, 2012 Sports Comments Off on NaMilCo Football Festival…GDF, Santos latest teams to advance
The Guyana Defence Force and Santos registered impressive wins when action in the NaMilCo Football Festival continued on Wednesday evening, at the Tucville ground.
On the second night of competition, GDF and Santos emerged victorious to join first round winners Sunburst Camptown and Beacon FC in the next stage of the knockout tournament.
The army lads proved too strong for a game, but outclassed the Black Pearl unit, beating them 4-0, while Santos eased to a comfortable 3-1 triumph over the Guyana Police Force.
In the opening encounter, Delwin Fraser nudged GDF ahead with the opening goal in the eighth minute, before Stephen Dolphin doubled the advantage after 26 minutes.
Two minutes later, Eusi Phillips made it three-nil to put the game beyond Black Pearl, before Sherwin Caesar completed the rout in the 78th minute.
In the feature contest, Santos was given an early lead when Michael Pedro found the back of the nets 10 minutes after the opening whistle.
Veteran player Gerald Whittington was on target in the 24th minute to put Santos 2-0 up, before Rondell Archer pulled one back for Police a minute later.
Santos, however, tightened their grip on the match a minute before half-time when Ryan Seales breached the lawmen’s backline, before beating the goalkeeper as well.
It proved to be the last goal of the game and the 16th of the competition after four completed games.
Action continues this weekend with two double-headers tomorrow and Sunday.
In tomorrow’s round of matches, Riddim Squad tackles Houston Stars from 18:00 hrs and that will be followed by the clash between Alpha United and Banks All-Stars.
The following day brings together Flamingo and GFC from 18:00 hrs, while in the feature game hosts Fruta Conquerors entertain Charlestown United at 20:00 hrs.
All matches in the competition are being hosted at the Tucville Ground, and the teams are battling for a first prize of $1million.
