-Wisroc gets second chance at redemption
Team 25 talisman Collie Hercules led from the front, opening the scoring after fourteen
minutes to engineer a comfortable 3-0 triumph for his team over upstarted High Rollers in their semi-final clash in this year’s Linden segment of the Guinness ‘Greatest of the Streets’ Futsal Competition which continued on Monday night, at the Amelia’s Ward Tarmac.
The win set up a clash against Wisroc last evening’s final which was scheduled to be played at the Mackenzie Market Tarmac.
Playing in the first semi-final in front of a large crowd, Hercules, a former national mid-field maestro expertly pulled the strings for Team 25 and he gave them the lead when he dummied a pass, before firing in from close range.
They held that slim advantage until the break.
Coming out of the break, both teams came close to scoring, but near misses kept the scoreline at 1-0 in favour of Team 25.
However, Team 25’s Ryan Noel made it 2-0 in the 26th minute with a first time strike from the right side after racing on to a pinpoint pass from Hercules, before exquisitely slicing the ball into the roof of the net.
Four minutes later, Romain Adams showed some deft skills when he back-heeled a pass delivered on the right side past a pedestrian attempt by an opposing defender to intercept the ball.
In the second semi-final, last year’s beaten finalist Wisroc needed just the solitary strike from Orandy Wills in the 3rd minute to erase the ambitions of Classic 6 to make it to the championship round.
In a cat and mouse affair, Wills collected a pass from the back and in one sweeping motion, swiveled and hammered a fierce shot past the last stop for the only goal of the game.
High Rollers is set to take on Classic-6 in the third place playoff.
The winning team was guaranteed $400,000 and the Championship trophy, while the second, third and fourth placed teams received $150,000, $75,000 and $50,000 respectively.
