-‘Gold is Money’ vs. Leopold St clash a must see
Former national player Trayon Bobb’s four-goal onslaught proved sufficient to lead West Side’s Showstoppers into the last eight of the inaugural Magnum ‘Mash Cup’ Classic following the completion of Round of 16 action on Monday night, at the National Gymnasium.
Playing before a fair-sized crowd, Bobb’s heroic performance which was registered in the 4th, 7th, 16th and 22nd minutes along with a solitary strike from Stephon Jupiter in the 23rd accounted for the scalp of Georgetown’s Back Circle who succumbed to a 3-5 defeat to exit the competition.
However, West Front Road ‘Gold is Money’, Sparta Boss, Bent Street, Ol Skool Ballers and Leopold Street remain in contention, while Linden’s Swag Entertainment and Silver Bullets join the abovementioned teams for tonight’s fixtures.
They face each other thereby guaranteeing that a team from the Mining Town makes it to the semis.
Silver Bullets win over the young promising Future Stars unit was one of the exciting games of the night, while Ol Skool Ballers narrow 2-1 victory over the highly touted NK Ballers out of the Linden community was another impressive matchup.
The two teams that are tipped to go all the way ‘Gold is Money’ and Sparta Boss both survived tough encounters against North East La Penitence and Ansa McAl All Stars respectively, but will need to reproduce those steely performances to progress to the next stage.
Sparta Boss is matched against Ol Skool Ballers, a team that have beaten them in the past so utmost on their minds will be revenge, while the latter will no doubt be looking to sustain their dominance.
The ‘Gold is Money’ versus Leopold Street clash judging from the latter’s current form could be the game of the night.
The return of inspiration leader Hubert Pedro to the ‘Gold is Money’ lineup makes them even more formidable than in the two previous tournaments, while Okanie Fraser and Omallo Williams are displaying irrepressible form and could prove difficult to keep off the score sheet.
What more could be said about Bent Street with the skilful duo of Job Caesar and Andrew Murray Jnr. in their lineup.
They face Showstoppers and this showdown is certain to ignite the anticipated fireworks that follow their opening engagement.
It promises to be a full night of pulsating action and a must see for futsal fans.
The winning team will receive $400,000 + Trophy, runner-up $200,000 + Trophy, third place $100,000 + Trophy and fourth place $50,000.
The sponsors on board are: Ansa McAl under its Magnum Tonic Wine brand, STP Investment, Oasis Water, Trophy Stall, Oasis Café and National Sports Commission.
