Defending Champions of the Guyana Football Federation’s (GFF) Elite League, Guyana Defence Force Football Club (GDF FC), defeated Victoria Kings 2-0 on Sunday evening at the Georgetown Football Club (GFC) ground, in a much needed win in their season III title defence bid.
In that feature match, Delroy Fraser (31st minute) and Carlus Adams with a stoppage time strike, sealed the victory for the army men.
In the first match of the evening which began at 17:30hrs, New Amsterdam United Football Club recorded their first win of the season with a 2-1 edging of Linden’s Milerock Football Club. Jeremy Samuels (59th) and Jomaul Butts (65th) both scored before Colric Beckles (79th) scored a consolation goal for Milerock.
Meanwhile on Friday, Hubert Pedro’s hat-trick performance for Western Tigers secured a comfortable three points when they came up against Cougars United at the same GFC ground venue.
Pedro netted first for the Tigers in the 13th minute then doubled six minutes later. Pedro’s teammate Colin Nelson supported with a 39th minute goal as the Ruimveldt based club enjoyed a healthy lead at half time.
Cougars scored a consolation in the 83rd minute through Mark Wronge before Erwin Johnson took the score to 3-2 in the 87th minute, giving Cougars some hope of securing their first point in league this season but Hubert Pedro completed his hat-trick in stoppage time and Tigers won the game 4-2.
Prior to that showdown, Fruta Conquerors needled Den Amstel (1-0) as the game saw the winning coach, Sampson Gilbert, use four subs, while O’Neal Heywood, used a handful of substitutions.
