Eagles United remained unbeaten when they recorded a second win in Group B to
advance after beating Botafago 2-1, while defending champions Silver Shattas were able to come away with a 0-0 draw against a good performance from Kwakwani Strikers which facilitated Shattas’ advancement. This is the narrative of the action when play continued last Friday evening in this year’s Upper Demerara Football Association (UDFA) 5th GT Beer Christmas tournament being played at the Mackenzie Sports Club ground.
Eagles United were able to rebound from a 27th minute goal by Botafago courtesy of D. Francis, as before the half time they were able to tie things up when Kwesi Quintin netted in the 39th minute.
With the game on even keel, Eagles United got the winning goal when Kellon Primo scored in the 76th minute to give his team the lead that provided a safe passage to the semifinals.
The defending champions Silver Shattas were held at bay by an energized Kwakwani Strikers team which matched them all the way to the final whistle and both teams remained scoreless. However, by virtue of their first 3-1 win over Topp XX and their unbeaten play, allowed the Shattas to top Group A.
Come next Wednesday when the competition continues at the Mackenzie sports Club ground Blueberry Hill will face Net Rockers in the first game at 19.00hrs which will conclude play in the round robin format.
