The final two semi final spots will be decided tonight when the quarter final round of
the Stag Nations Cup knock-out football championship ends tonight at the Tucville ground.
Grove Hi Tech will come up against Police in the feature match from 21:00hrs with the winner set to collide with Western Tigers in the second semi final on Sunday at the GFC ground. Tonight’s opening clash at 19:00hrs will see Riddim Squad facing off with Den Amstel, the winner of this shindig set to oppose Santos in the first semi final on Sunday.
Police’ first and only match of the championship produced the largest margin of victory for any team in the competition to date, 13-2 and this was achieved against Rosignol United of Berbice at the #5 ground on December 16th, last.
But coming up against Grove Hi Tech which also defeated a Berbice Team, their #1, New Amsterdam United 4-2 on Wednesday last at the Grove ground, Police will find themselves facing a much more potent force.
The Lawmen however, would fancy their chances of easing into the semis given the players in their arsenal who they would be confident can deliver on the night for them. Police would be looking to the man that scored a hat-trick for them against Rosignol, Quinsen Holder to lead their charge against the #1 team on the East Bank.
Support would come from the likes of Kester Dundas, Atto Wallace, Junior Gordon, Dwayne
Charles, Jermaine Castello, Grayson Barker, Jermaine Grandison and Rawle Turnell who all scored in that huge win, Barker achieving a double.
However, Grove Hi Tech will not be intimidated by Police’ dominance in City football and would be out to prove that as champions of the first two editions of this championship which had attracted three GFF affiliated associations in each instance, they would not be easily daunted as they have yet to lose a match in nine (9) outings over a three year span.
Grove’s Captain, Sherman Doris will once again be at the helm and will look to lead from the front as usual. He would fancy his chances of repeating his performance of a brace of goals which piloted them to victory over New Amsterdam United on Wednesday night last.
Able support would come from Mervin Squires and Joel Dick both of whom scored in the win, Teshawn Blackman, Dexter Archer, Seon Thompson, Trevor Jones, Clive Matthews, Kevin Padmore, Akel Forde, Delroy Dodson, Moses Fraser, Shane Singh, Antony Stanton, Nicholai Matthews, Denzil Crawford, Devon Joseph, Akeem James, Alwyn Haynes, Jermaine Benjamin and Ronaldo Romelho.
Riddim Squad will also find that the Den Amstel unit, the last standing side from the West Demerara, will be much tougher than Cougars of Berbice whom they trounced 5-2 in their round-of-16 clash on December 16th.
The East Bank based Riddim Squad will hope to cross tonight’s hurdle successfully and will turn to the likes of Kevin Gordon, Sceyon Hope, Dellon John, Kevin Agard and Teon Jones who netted for them against Cougars, to be on target.
Den Amstel had to pull out all the stops to get past a game Ann’s Grove United on Wednesday night last via kicks from the penalty mark. Gavin Graham, Kevaughn Ward, Maurice Charles, Kerwin Ward, Clevon Pryce, Travis Hilliman, Akimbo Henry, Joseph Payne, Wycliff Simon, Derron Wilson, Alista Lynch, Keon Marcus, Ryan Hunte, Prince Payne, Kevin Murray, Colin Benn, Jamal Perreira, Kerry Harvey, Welton Jordon, Anton Jackman and Andre Hector will carry their charge for a victory and place in the final four.
