Timehri Panthers has maintained their unblemished record with a 2-0 win over Kuru Kururu Warriors when play in the Stag Beer sponsored East Bank Football Association division-one league continued at the Grove Playfield yesterday afternoon.
Both teams were unbeaten prior to the clash but at the end of 90 minutes it was Timehri that walked away with full points, now moving to 9 which place them at the top of the points standings.
The win by Timehri also saw them maintaining their record as the best defensive team so far in the competition, scoring a total of six goals, while their defence is yet to be breached by any of their opponents.
The game was much closer than 2-0 as the score line suggests, Timehri took the lead in the 20th minute compliments of a Collis Massiah goal. Eight minutes later the advantage was doubled when Timehri were awarded a penalty.
Lawrence Steele stepped up to take the kick and did not disappoint, hitting the ball past custodian Nijun Hooke in the 28th minute.
Despite conceding two early goals, the Warriors living true to their name keep up their offensive game but were not allowed to prosper owing to some solid defending by the Panthers.
Both teams utilised their full quota of substitutes during the course of the encounter, Timehri in an effort to maintain the advantage and Kuru Kururu, which sought to score, but were not allowed to as they now drop one place down to third in the standings behind Agricola.
The league is set to continue today at the same venue with a clash between Grove Hi Tech and Herstelling from 15:30hrs.
