After three sizzling nights of action, play in the GT Beer / Petra Organisation Futsal Competition is expected to resume tonight with four more matches in the preliminary phase, at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.
In the opening fixture, North Ruimveldt tackle Beterverwagting (BV) from 19:00hrs; Showstoppers square off against Broad Street from 19:45hrs; Albouystown go up against Alexander Village from 21:00hrs and West Front Road-Gold is Money and Sophia collide at 21:45hrs.
The North Ruimveldt versus BV affair should provide the perfect start for the night’s action since it is a battle between two teams looking to register their first set of points in the tournament.
The experienced Gerald Gritten and the energetic Joshua Brown are the leading players to instigate a win for the Georgetown-based side, while BV’s pursuit of victory will depend heavily on the services of Warren Gilkes, Delroy Dean, Devon Griffith and Reon Hopkinson.
The game that follows is between West Demerara Showstoppers and Broad Street and here again this is a duel that involves two teams that lost their opening fixtures so right away fans could anticipate a close and exciting contest.
Anthony Sancho and Simon Emmanuel, the two players that displayed prolific form in their previous clash will once again be called upon to lead the charge for victory, while Leon Richardson, Ryan Jones and Devon Charles will have to play similar roles for Broad Street if they are to stand any chance of beating their rivals.
Albouystown and Alexander Village matchup should be a bruising encounter, but the former seems to have the slight edge.
The speedy Devon Dooker, who had a terrific first game along with Lennox Cort, Marlon Nedd and Denvor Dennis, all are lethal in attack and Alexander Village backline will have to defend for their lives to stop the East Georgetown juggernauts.
On the other hand, Jermin Junor, Shem Porter and the wizardry of Leon Yaw could prove effective in stopping Albouystown’s forward march.
This game could go right down to the final minute and fans could be the real winners.
In the final encounter of the evening, West Front Road-Gold is Money and Sophia is a definite blockbuster and a guaranteed sellout.
The star-studded lineups of these two teams will provide a fitting conclusion to the night’s proceedings, especially with the early form that they’ve demonstrated so far.
Sophia was explosive in their demolition of Showstoppers, slamming in eleven goals with Dwayne Lowe and Akeem Jaikissoon hitting the target thrice each, while the Kamal siblings Sheik and Joshua, also showed glimpses of their talent.
What more could be said of their opponents West Front Road, a team loaded with flair and enchantment.
The calmness that Hubert Pedro brings to the team is a special expertise, but his pace and power are also a joy to watch, while Randolph Wagner, Michael Oie and Michael Pedro, all have the ability to penetrate any backline.
The race is on and teams are battling hard to make it to the next round.
Close to $1million in prize monies and trophies are up for grabs and apart from Banks DIH under its GT Beer brand, the other sponsors on board are NaMilCo and Trophy Stall of Bourda Market.
