GFF Inter-Association Female Championship
A determined display by Georgetown proved to be decisive in their marquee encounter against Rupununi which ended in a 3-1 defeat for the visitors yesterday, at the GFC ground.
The result meant that Georgetown are the champions of the Guyana Football Federation Inter-Association Female Championship.
The hosts opened their scoring in the 13th minute when Nicola Leacock, who netted a brace in the match beating the goalkeeper.
The Rupununi team, who came into yesterday match as the leaders in the points standing, though, showing glimpses of their skills were outclassed in speed and strength and many of their buildups were easily nullified by robust defending from the Georgetown-based opponents.
Georgetown’s Andrea Lashley, a national rugby player as well, stretched their advantage after racing on to a pass from the back, before hammering a powerful shot over the leaping Rupununi goalkeeper stationed on the near post and that goal came in the 24th minute of play.
However, five minutes later, Rupununi’s Samantha Daniels pulled one back after netting following a scrimmage in the Georgetown goal area.
The half came with no addition to the scoreline, but Georgetown looking the stronger of the two teams in the soggy conditions.
In the second period, both teams attacked with menace, but once again, stout defending from the backline erased any chance of either team netting.
Georgetown, however, added another to seal the win in the 60th minute when Leacock ran on to a long ball from the back, before firing a shot past the goalkeeper.
The hosts after that had to repel several threatening raids, but rallied until the end clenching to their two-goal lead until the final whistle sounded, sending their supporters into wild celebrations.
