Eagles FC’s Orlanzo Henry, Den Amstel’s Akimo Henry and Gavin Graham, Leonard Wilson of Jetty Gunners and Lawrence Phillips (Wales) all netted a brace of goals each in leading their respective teams to victory except in the case of Wilson and Phillips when the Stag Senior League on the West Demerara continued last weekend at the Den Amstel Community Centre ground.
Also in winner’s row were Young Achievers and Vegae Boys. In the clash of the Stewartville teams, Eagles fought back from a goal down to soar past Stewartville in a tight battle 2-1 on account of Henry’s second half double.
Stewartville, the older of the two clubs, had taken the lead in the 31st minute through a Horace Caines goal; they enjoyed that advantage until Henry came into the picture, first with the equalizer in the 57th minute then the game winner in the 75th minute.
Den Amstel made light work of Jetty Gunners after also having to erase a one goal deficit to win 5-2. Jetty Gunners’ Leonard Wilson who netted both their goals drew first blood in the match when it was 14 minutes old.
Wilson’s effort woke up the sleeping giants even though it took quite a few minutes. Henry
was first on target for the home side with the first of his two in the 38th minute doubling that and giving his side the lead on the stroke of half time, 45th minute.
Den Amstel, like they always do, came out all guns blazing in the second half as they outplayed Jetty Gunners. Paul Miggins increased the home side’s hold on the match in the 57th minute before two more goals were converted, this time from Gavin Graham in the 59th and 61st minutes to increase the lead 5-1 up to that point.
Jetty Gunners still continued to show some heart and pulled another back with three minutes to full time as Wilson completed his double; final score Den Amstel 5 Jetty Gunners 2.
In matches on Saturday, Young Achievers were led to their 2-1 triumph over Golden Warriors on account of goals from Tifel Adams in the 10th minute and Tiffon Welcome, two minutes later.
Golden Warriors, which were reduced to 10 players after Dellon Layne picked up his second yellow card of the match in the 53rd minute following one in the 35th minute, got their consolation strike off the boot of Jermain Isaiah in the 62nd minute.
Vegae Boys also won a close encounter 3-2 over Wales United. Shemar Hetmyer (10th), Cordel Walcott (31st) and Carlos Caesar in the 75th minute were the goal scorers for winners. Wales United got their goals from Lawrence Phillips in the 46th and 51st minute.
Four more matches are carded for this weekend as rivalry continues. On Saturday, Eagles will aim to fly further when they engage Vegae Boys in opening play with Uitvlugt taking on Stewartville in the main game.
On Sunday, Pouderoyen match skills with Golden Warriors in the main event preceded by a clash between Jetty Gunners and Beavers. (Franklin Wilson)
