Marvin Joseph netted a brace in the 82nd and 91st minute with support from Joshua Britton (26), Stellon David (63)
and Lorenzo Duesbury (77) to lead Western Tigers to a decisive victory over Houston All Stars when action in the GFA/Banks Beer Cup round robin knockout tournament 2014/15 continued at the Tucville Ground Sunday evening last.
The two teams tangled in the Group ‘A’ encounter moments before Fruta Conquerors and Georgetown Football Club (GFC) battled to a nil all stalemate. The initial stages of the Western Tigers/ Houston All Stars encounter were fraught with tactical blunders that saw both teams wasting perfect opportunities.
Nevertheless, the common trait was determination and persistence, forcefully underlined when Britton collected a pass from Marvin Joseph and pasted the Houston All Stars custodian. The success seemed to have buoyed the spirit of the ‘Tigers’ and a brilliant pass from Joseph landed on Britton’s ‘sugar foot’ and he duly converted with relative ease.
All along, star striker, Stellon David, was working relentlessly but was denied by a strong defensive line up of the opposition. The dapper front man underlined the benefits of persistence just after resumption when he performed a solo from halfway down the field to send his team up 3-0. Suddenly, Joseph came to life and his double in quick succession sealed the deal for his team.
The feature match was a fiercely fought affair but like the preceding encounter, was rife with missed chances. Activities continued last evening at the GDF Ground, Thomas Lands, when Santos FC took on Beacon FC while Riddim Squad FC played Camptown FC. Tomorrow’s encounter will see GDF battling Black Pearl FC followed by the highly anticipated encounter between Pele FC and Flamingo FC.
