Guinness ‘Greatest of de Streets’ Competition…
-Semi-finals on tonight
A packed Mackenzie Market Tarmac crowed with supporters from the competing teams
hugged the barricades sweating with anxiety as three matches had to be decided via penalty shootout in quarter-final action of the Linden segment of the Guinness ‘Greatest of de Streets’ Competition which ended late Tuesday evening.
The most pulsating of the three was the final game of the night between Hard Knocks and Star Boys which ended in favour of the latter in sudden death penalty kicks after regulation and extra time failed to produce an outright winner.
In the lone game that finished in regulation time, Russians squeezed past Speightland 1-0 thanks to a briliant Terrence Aaron goal.
In the opening encounter of the night, Wisroc moved on after prevailing 2-1 on penalty kicks after the game ended nil-all.
Panthers and Unknowns then took to the park and they too failed to penetrate each other’s airtight defence resulting in a goalless stalemate, before the latter triumphed 2-1 in the shootout.
The night’s full results are seen below:
Wisroc 0 Classic Six 0
Wisroc advance on penalty 2-1
Unknowns advance 2-1 on penalty
Russians 1 Speightland 0
Terrance Aaron 14th min
HardKnocks 0 Star Boys 0
Star Boys advance 7-6 on penalty
Meanwhile, Terrance Aron received a cash incentive for his goal scored from former Mackenzie Star player Garth Nelson, owner of ‘WE CAN AUTO REPAIR’ from NY.
The semi finals will be played tonight at the same venue, but before that there will be four exhibition matches.
