Rising Stars ended the first round of the GFF/NAMILCO Thunderbolt Flour Power National
Under-17 Intra Association League undefeated when they edged past Potaro Strikers 3-2 on Thursday afternoon at the Bartica Secondary School ground.
In their toughest match of the first round which also ended on Thursday, Rising Stars which ended with an unblemished five wins in as many matches conceded their first goals of the round including falling behind in the 16th minute when Potaro Strikers’ Daniel Gardener handed his team the lead.
This tested the resolve of Rising Stars which not only equalized in the 33rd minute through Dornell James goal but went on to take the lead two minutes later on account of McQuain Smith’s effort.
Their one goal cushion was increased to two on 47 minutes when Tyrese Gomes found the back of the nets and even though Raymond Bacchus netted Potaro Strikers’ second goal in the 49th minute to make it a 3-2 game, Rising Stars was able to keep their opponents at bay to walk away with three more points which solidified their hold at the top of the leader board heading into the second round, next week.
Lazio ended in the second place three points adrift of Rising Stars following a comfortable 5-0 thumping of Strikers FC. Doubles each from Ayube Khan in the 5th and 12th minute, Ezekiel King 32nd and 43rd and one off the boot of Jeremy Marslowe in the 38th minute carried Lazio to victory handing Strikers their second loss of the round.
