Kuru Kururu Warriors recorded the biggest upset of the Stag / EBFA Senior League to date when they handed defending champions Grove Hi Tech their first loss of the season whilst notching up their second win via a 2-0 score line in the feature match on Sunday last at the Grove Playfield.
Sunday’s opening match saw Soesdyke Falcons also recording their second win in four matches when they overcame Mocha Champs 3-2.
KK Warriors, also competing in the inaugural Beach Soccer League wasted little time in establishing that they were out to grind the defending champions as they were players minus three of their starters who were all suspended due to red card violations.
Ryan Scott, who has been displaying good form in both the 11-a-side and beach soccer leagues was once again the man who would craft what can be described as huge win for the Linden Soesdyke Highway based side.
Scott tormented the Grove defence for the entire 90 minutes with his first goal scored in the 6th minute when he beat goalkeeper Rondell Alleyne at the near post, the ball squeezing into the back of the nets in the little space provided at the right post.
The goal brought jubilation from the KK Warriors players, reserves and Coach, Dale Roberts. But while they were sitting pretty ahead, the Warriors never lost sight of the task at hand and kept the pressure on the defending champions.
Grove did get behind the Warriors defence on a few occasions but lacked the potency upfront as they were constantly nullified. The Warriors would double the advantage on 30 minutes when Scott fired in his and his side’s second of the match.
Poor defending yet again allowed the nippy and nagging Scott to get behind the defending
champs backline as he tapped in the squared ball comfortably. Grove tried their best to pull themselves back into the match but every effort was dampened by the energized Warriors as they romped to a big win but more importantly, three points.
Despite losing however, Grove still holds down the number one spot in the points table on goal difference ahead of Herstelling Raiders.
Soesdyke Falcons, led by goals from veteran Troy Johnson in the 25th minute, Captain Marvin Joseph in the 41st minute and another seasoned campaigner Collis Messiah in the 58th minute staved off a spirited late surge by Mocha Champs to win 3-2.
Both of Mocha’s goals were scored by Andel Anthony in the 57th and 67th minute, respectively. Another potentially exciting double header is fixed for this Sunday when Grove will have the chance to restore some lost pride when they oppose Diamond United.
KK Warriors and Herstelling Raiders will set the afternoon’s play off at 13:30hrs in the first game and this will be a keen battle.
