-Three teams from Mining Town make it
A fair-sized crowd that converged at the Mackenzie Sports Club ground in Linden on
Sunday saw all three teams from the Mining Town that took to the starting line in this year’s Limacol Round Robin / Knockout Football Competition make the qualification mark and by virtue are among the teams in the quarter-finals.
In the feature clash, Milerock and Winners Connection played to a nil-all draw in what many felt was a disappointing game with the teams merely content on securing their berths to the next stage.
However, in the opening fixture, the young and entertaining Eagles United produced another encouraging performance en route to a comfortable 3-0 triumph over Berbice’s New Amsterdam United.
The skilful Kendolph Lewis opened the scoring in the 8th minute to give the partisan support much joy, but that was contained to the break as the visitors defence adjusted from a nervous start.
After the break, the hosts continued to create chances, but were held at bay as the NA United packed players behind the ball.
However, Eagles were able to prise open the airtight defence through Kurt Johnson, who nettted in the 70th.
Playing an attacking brand of football, Eagles looked menacing on every possession and should have scored another shortly after, but Lewis saw his effort pushed wide into touch.
Not content with the 2-0 scoreline, Eagles continued to push forward and got their reward three minutes from full time when Kelon Primo made it 3-0 which lasted until the final whistle
sounded to hand the Mining Town team a place in the last eight.
