The popular Topp Class ended the hopes of one of the tournament favourites, Hard Knocks, condemning them to a 0-3 loss while New Era Russians ensured that El Dorado were not on course for gold, beating them 2-0 at the Mackenzie Sports Club (MSC) Hard-Court. We Are De Boss triumphed over Phoenix 1-0 and Retrieve Unknowns cooled off Hot Skull 3-0 Wednesday night to also advance to the semis of the Mackeson ‘Street Football’ Challenge that started in Amelia’s Ward last Sunday night.
Playing in front of another bumper crowd, which continually followed the encounters, Retrieve Unknowns were led to their victory through the superlative strikes of Jamal Rogers, who headed past the Skulls to send his team to the semis.
The semifinals and final of the competition are slated for tomorrow night at the MSC Hard-Court.
After that win from Retrieve Unknowns, the Christianburg-based side, Hard Knocks were easily dismantled by the strike force from Topp Class. Jermaine Grandison, Rawle ‘Boney’ Gittens and Ashton Angel were on target for Topp Class.
Following the upset win, Phoenix, which consist mainly of players from Blueberry Hill were needled out of contention as they came up against We Are De Boss who beat them 1-0 off the lone strike of the game from Shawn Seaforth.
In the feature game of the night, New Era Russians controlled the pace well, powering their way over Silvertown’s El Dorado, who was shut out 2-0 as Travis ‘Chicken’ Waterton and Terrence Aaron finished with solid goals.
It means that with all to play for tomorrow night, the semifinals and final should once again be well-attended as the football fans converge to see the four semifinalists battle it out to cash in on the lucrative first place award.
Ansa McAl under its Mackeson Brand is the sponsor of the tournament. The top team will walk away with $250,000 and trophy while second place pockets $150,000 and trophy; third place $100,000 and trophy and fourth place $40,000 and trophy.
In addition, the interactive promotions to get the fans involved where there will be giveaways on game nights will continue. The Most Valuable Player will also be rewarded.
