When play in the Stag Beer sponsored East Demerara Football Association (EDFA) senior league continued last weekend,
taking full points from their encounters were home team Buxton United and BV Triumph United (BVTU).
Playing at the Buxton Community Centre ground, BVTU trounced another of the home teams, Buxton Stars, 3-1. Buxton Stars took the lead in the 11th minute through a Cubina Watson goal but their celebrations were short lived since BV fired back six minutes later compliments of a Deshawn Garnett strike to draw level.
There was no looking back for the BV side as they hit the back of the nets two more times in the second half, unanswered. Grabon Blenman handed them the lead in the 60th minute while the icing was put on the cake in the 67th minute by Quacey Price’ goal.
In the opening game, Buxton United found themselves trailing Sparta United seven minutes on after Jamal Woodman rocked the nets, the lead would stand for the remaining minutes in the first half.
But the flood gates would open in the final half of play not for Sparta, but for Buxton United who fired in six goals. Clive Andries blasted a helmet-trick (55, 68, 78, 80), Keoma Sullivan was on target in the 73rd minute and two minutes later it was Denver Dennis who hit the network to seal a commanding win.
Competition is set to continue on Saturday at Victoria Ground when the home team and current points leaders, Victoria Kings face Sparta United in the lone fixture. On Sunday, a double header is set for the Buxton Community Centre ground; BVTU will face Golden Stars from 14:00hrs with the feature clash between Buxton Stars and Buxton United.
Points Standings to date: Victoria Kings (25), Buxton United (21), Mahaica Determinators (21), BV Triumph United (17), Ann’s Grove (14), Golden Stars (12), Buxton Stars (10), Sparta United (8).
