The Guyana Hockey Board, in collaboration with LUCOZADE, kicked off their first Indoor Hockey Tournament of the year yesterday and will continue every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday onward. This is be the first local major tournament since the new Executive was elected, and eyes and ears are glued to observe the potential progress of this vibrant group. The other substantial point to note is that this tournament is a stepping stone for both the male and female teams since they have their sights set on the Pan American Indoor Championships in Canada slated for April of next year, and the locker room gossip is that the odds are, so far, in the local teams’ favor.
GCC has entered three male teams and two female teams, the A team being sponsored by Pizza Hut. This A team has been crushing the competition for some time and are touted as the tournament favorites, but the second string GCC female team (The Spartans) has shown vast improvement and promise to hold their own as well. The Old Fort squad boasts of two formidable male teams and a female “underdog” side that will hold no punches.
The Hikers, on the other hand, brings one male team to the game but are confident in their numbers, while their female squad is in its rebuilding stages but promises to make their mark nevertheless. The Saints squad brags of male team that is a force to be reckoned with. All junior players return to their respective sides after not playing with their teams for two years due to under 21 training. This bolsters the anticipated competition and will make for some exhilarating entertainment.
Players to watch are Junior National stars Aroydy Branford and Andrew Stuart from the Hikers team, which also consist of Senior National players Robert France and Shane Samuels. The latter is the reigning MVP of the National Indoor Tournament. Juniors Daniel Hooper and Kareem McKensie, along with National Goalkeeper Medroy Scotland (who is in for an injured Junior Captain Mark Sergeant), will rejoin GCC; while Saints will have the skills of Ato Greene and Hilton Chester in their arsenal. Old Fort will also be stronger due to Omar Hopkinson’s presence. The action goes down at the National Gymnasium, beginning at 17:00hrs daily.
