William Europe kept his cool and scored to help his side, the East Coast Demerara based Ann’s Grove Football Club needle Region six’s Cougar’s Football Club in round three play of the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) 2017-18 Elite League at the Buxton Community Center ground yesterday afternoon.
Europe, a current national forward and former left winger at the Alpha United Football Club, left it late until the 81st minute to break the deadlock at the cool and breezy sea-side venue.
Cougars were rightfully disappointed with the loss after having the bulk of chances in front of goal in addition to dominating possession but Europe’s clinical finishing trumped the Berbicians statistics as his team Victoria Kings added a valuable three points in their bid to dethrone champions Guyana Defence Force.
In the feature match of the day, scores of fans that were mostly supporting the home side Buxton FC, had to stomach their team suffering a 2-0 loss at the hand of rivals Victoria Kings.
Aubrey Gibson was the hero for the Kings and netted both goals during both periods of play in the match. His first came two minutes before the first break and his second successful strike came two minutes after halftime.
The win has resulted in Victoria Kings surging to the top of the points table with six points after winning their three games played, usurping last round leaders Den Amstel who lost to defending champions Guyana Defence Force on Friday’s match day.
Matches continue Wednesday at the Mackenzie Sports Club ground with a double header. Admission is $500, women and children 12 years and under are free. (Calvin Chapman)
