The Ansa McAl/Stag Beer West Side 5-A-Side football tournament started at the Vergenoegen Rice Mill Tarmac on Friday last with several teams recording victories in front of a large crowd.
Stewartville Gunners, Woodcrest, Vergenoegen All-Stars and New Road Eagles were victorious in the first edition of a tournament of this nature being held on the ‘West Side’.
In the opening encounter, Kwame Hyman scored a double (30 seconds and 56 seconds) along with an own goal in the 19th minute to see Stewartville Gunners defeating Woodcrest 3 – 0.
The night’s second game was decided on lone goal which came off the booth of Orlanzo Henry in the first minute that saw Vergenoegen All-Stars edging Shattaville Pacesetters.
New Road Eagles, through Paul Rodney’s eighth minute goal, upset a star studded Tuschen Up-Top Youths 1 – 0 that featured the likes of Devon Millington and John ‘Brown Boy’ Waldron.
Meanwhile, in what was by far the evening’s most entertaining clash, Woodcrest rebounded from an early defeat on the night to beat Shattaville Pacesetters 4 – 2.
The tournament will continue on August 27, 29 and 31, along with September 3, 5 with the grand final on September 7.
