West Demerara / East Bank Demerara Guinness Competition…
It was a night of penalty shootouts with defending champion Showstoppers, also being
required to go that route, before surviving 2-1 over Brothers United after their pulsating quarter-final encounter ended 0-0 in regulation time on Wednesday night, at the Pouderoyen Tarmac.
Appearing in the third quarter-final fixture in this year’s West Demerara / East Bank Demerara Guinness ‘Greatest of the Streets’ Competition, Showstoppers were pushed to the brink by a determined Brothers United, before prevailing in a tense penalty shootout to set up a semi-final date with the Money Team this evening, at the same venue.
The Money Team enjoyed a similar 2-1 triumph against favourite Tajoe’s Admiral United in a penalty shootout after their clash also finished with neither team able to score in regulation time.
In the other quarter-final matches, the growing crowd favourite ESPN which is led by Stabroek News Reporter Duncan Saul frustrated Agricola with a stifling defence, before beating them 2-0 in another penalty shootout.
Also, tournament joint favourites Hustlers saw a one-goal lead disappear two minutes from full time, before outlasting Goal Getters 3-2 in a penalty shootout to set up a clash against ESPN in what promises to be a sizzling affair for a final berth.
