Former national mid-fielder Collie Hercules relived his golden years with a stunning performance as Linden teams enjoyed 100% success on opening night of the Guinness ‘Greatest of the Streets’ National Playoffs which begun Friday evening, at the Banks DIH Car Park, Ruimveldt.
Hercules, who is a Vice-President on the current Guyana Football Federation executive, replaced the office attire and donned playing uniform as he exhibited admirable fitness and nimble footwork to bamboozle opposing teams en route to ensuring that his outfit, Silent Assassins, remain unbeaten heading into tonight’s second round of matches.
The other entrant from the Linden community, recently crowned champions in their segment, Silver Bullets, also looked impressive as they too maintained an unblemished record at the end of opening night action, played before a fair-sized crowd.
Silent Assassins registered wins over Plaisance, who they beat 3-2 on penalty kicks after regulation time failed to break a 1-1 deadlock, before they returned to defeat Bartica’s Millenium 2-1.
Silver Bullets on the other hand, first cruised past Bartica’s Hard Core Bar 3-1, before surviving 2-1 on penalty kicks in an epic battle against Victoria Church Yard after regulation time ended 0-0.
East Coast Demerara runner-up Victoria Church Yard scored an impressive 2-0 win over Georgetown winners Leopold Street, before the latter returned to beat Hard Core Bar 1-0.
The exciting Victoria Church Yard was unfortunate to lose their first game on penalty kicks against Linden’s Silver Bullets.
Back Circle beat Millenium 3-0, but went down to Plaisance 1-0, while Leopold Street rebounded to edge Hard Core Bar 1-0.
The only teams to have lost both of their games to date are those from Bartica.
Meanwhile, action in the competition resumes tonight after the Organisers were forced to postpone last evening’s scheduled round of matches due to the inclement weather.
