Beavers take third
Uitvlugt Warriors defeated old rivals Pouderoyen 4-2 on penalty kicks following a 1-1 stalemate in regulation time in the final of the West Demerara Football Association (WDFA) qualifier competition.
The two sides faced off on Sunday last at the Den Amstel Community Centre ground where Beavers FC got the better of Stewartville 5-2 to win the third place match-up.
Starring for Uitvlugt was Keon Duke in an exciting and fast paced game with the two young sides going at each other. Pouderoyen took the early lead through a Marvin Frank goal midway through the first half; his angled drive across the goalkeeper ended in the back of the nets as a result of sustained pressure in the penalty area.
Second half substitute for Uitvlugt, Keon Duke scored equaliser with his first touch, running on to a forward pass to drill home a first time strike from just inside the penalty area. He also scored the winning penalty for his team who pressed and dominated most of the second half.
The WDFA has informed that by virtue of their win, Uitvlugt will the association’s representative team in the GFF Elite tournament.
The WDFA will continue its programme over the Christmas season with the Annual Banks sponsored Josiah KO tournament; Slingerz FC won last year’s competition. All matches will be played at the Leonora Athletics Complex on December 11, 13, 20 and 27.
