The battle for supremacy in the inaugural Stag Super XV1 knock-out football tournament will continue today at the #5 ground West Coast Berbice with another double header featuring two home teams.
First up at 18:00hrs will be Timehri Panthers and New Amsterdam United. The Timehri boys will be led by Troy Johnson, Seon David (Captain), Rodwell Grant (goalkeeper), Christopher Messiah, Alvin Adams, Oren, Samuel, John and Lawrence Steele, Hubert Adams and Delon Douglas.
New Amsterdam will look to the likes of Captain Adrian Adams, Leonardo Adams, Jovano DosSantos, Devin Ferdinand, Travis Williams, Devon James, Dane Johnson, Jason Drakes, James Isaacs, Samad Arokium and Dwayne Hazel as they seek a place in the quarter finals but Timehri will have other ideas.
The feature clash brings together home side Rosignol United and Mahaica Determinators in an Ancient county / East Coast showdown. Rosignol will go into the game as odds on favourites to win given that they are a GFF Premier League team but that status will not faze the East Coast side as they too, are on a mission to prove they have what it takes to win too.
Rosignol’s Captain, Curtis Moore will lead their quest with support from Newt Mahaica, Keenon Rajgopaul, Olvis Mitchell, Calvin McKenzie, Oswin Michael, Javell Fraser, Akheem Hutson, Mark Wronge, Shane Gangoo and Dewayne Perry.
Determinators’ challenge will center around Travis Charles, Charles, Andrew Williams, Kurt Roberts, Azumah Roberts, Mikel Benjamin, Quincy Holder, Julian Harte, Sherwin Hermanstine, Tryon Rutherford, Samuel Charles, Royden Ramsey, Kevin Porter Abrams Brown, Delon Perreira and Keith Grimmond.
Meanwhile, Grove Hi Tech and Ann’s Grove of East Demerara are the latest teams to book quarter finals spots following their round-of-16 matches on Friday night at the Grove ground, East Bank Demerara.
Grove defeated BV Triumph United 2-0, while Ann’s Grove booted Agricola Red Triangle 1-0. Both winners sealed their advancement in the competition which has a top prize of 1.5 million dollars in the first half. Grove’s leading marksman Domini Garnett wasted little time in handing his side the ascendancy.
Nine minutes into the game, Garnett was on target much to the delight of the appreciative crowd on hand. And even before the BV side could have conjured up a plan to keep the home team at bay, they found themselves trailing 2-0, Orson Francois hitting the ball past custodian Darren Marks in the 14th.
The exchanges continued at a fast pace between both sides but there were no more goals which meant that Grove have moved on to a quarter final on Christmas day against the winner of the round-of-16 clash between Buxton United and Kuru Kururu Warriors set for next Tuesday at the Victoria ground.
Friday’s opening game saw Ann’s Grove spoiling the Agricola Red Triangle party by the lone goal of their encounter which came off the boot of Quincy Johnson in the 29th minute. Agricola only have themselves to blame since they squandered a number of opportunities including a penalty late in the second period which would have changed the complexion of the game.
Kacy John was the culprit, putting the ball wide of the right upright, goalkeeper Kevon Barry did not have to do anything. Earlier, Ann’s Grove were denied the chance of doubling the lead owing to some fine work by National Under-17 custodian Quazim Yussuf in goal for Agricola.
