-Melanie ‘A’ finishes third
A late strike in extra time left the large turnout out of fans stunned as visitors
BV ‘B’ escaped with a narrow 1-0 win over host North Haslington to win the final of the East Coast Zone of the Guinness ‘Greatest of the Streets’ Futsal Competition on Sunday, at the Haslington Market Tarmac.
With the win they not only took home $250,000 and the championship trophy, but also grabbed a place in the national playoffs which is expected to start tomorrow, at the National Cultural Centre Tarmac.
The final commenced with both teams showing a bit of nervousness and clearly failed to create opportunities to score before the half ended.
The second period saw them both try to construct chances, but poor finishing kept the contest goalless and it stayed that way until the whistle sounded to end regulation time and signal the start of extra time.
The same pattern of play continued, but just when it seemed as though penalty shootout was in the making BV ‘B’ managed to conjure up one last trick when Stephen Miller dribbled one defender, before rifling his effort into the goal to stun the large crowd of home supporters.
However, North Haslington did not walk away empty-handed, they received $150,000
and a trophy.
In the 3rd place playoff, Melanie ‘A’ squeezed past Plaisance ‘B’ 1-0 with Rondell Assanah netting in the 30th minute.
It meant that Melanie ‘A’ collected $100,000, while Plaisance ‘B’ won $50,000.
Earlier, in semi-final play, BV ‘B’ beat Plaisance ‘B’ 3-2 on sudden death penalty kicks after normal and extra time finished 0-0.
North Haslington edged Melanie ‘A’ 1-0 courtesy of a Randy Waldron goal in the 17th minute.
