-More action set for Tuesday
Defending champion Showstoppers made an impressive start to the defence of their title with a convincing 3-0 triumph over Small Panama on opening night of the 3rd Annual West Demerara / East Bank Demerara Guinness ‘Greatest of the Streets’ Futsal Competition, being played at the Pouderoyen Tarmac, West Demerara.
The reigning title holders were led to victory through strikes from Dexroy Adams (16th ) and Kayode King (20th ), while an own goal in the 7th had given them the lead early.
Also producing an effective display was Admiral United, who beat Speed Boat by a similar margin thanks to goals from Lexroy Manfield whose brace came in the 2nd and 5th minutes, while Emanuel Henry completed their tally with an 11th minute strike.
In the first game, Kurt Garnett (15th) and Andre Bernard (18th) efforts allowed Patentia Street Ballers to cruise to a 2-0 win over Raiders.
Bagotstown teams suffered mixed fortunes in their quest for top honours.
Bagotstown Warriors survived 1-0 in sudden death penalty shootout against Young Ballers after regulation time ended 0-0, while Bagotstown Ballers fell to Hustlers via a similar result following a 0-0 score-line in regulation time.
