Rivalry in the Bartica Independence Cup organised by the Bartica Football Association (BFA) in collaboration with the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) is set to continue this afternoon at the Bartica Secondary School Ground after kicking off on Sunday last.
Beacon FC would be seeking their first points when they come up against Wolves United also seeking to get on the points table.
In the first match after the official kick off was done by GFF President, Wayne Forde on Sunday last, Daniel Moshett made good use of a defensive error to give Mill Ballers an early lead over Beacons FC in the sixth minute.
But the hard fought battle saw Beacons returning the favour in the 32nd minute, thanks to a Rolando Parris strike.
Lazio and Rising Stars then took the field in what turned out to be a crowd-pleasing clash. Young Mark Richards forced the Rising Stars Goalie into making a mistake to put Lazio one up in the 53rd minute; but their jubilation was cut short by a Colin Joseph goal from a set play that went over the Lazio custodian and dipped under the crossbar, just one minute later.
On Monday, Strikers FC tamed Wolves United 4-0 at the same venue; one match would be played daily from 16:00hrs.
Meanwhile, at the opening ceremony, GFF President Wayne Forde in declaring the tournament open congratulated the BFA for rising to its mandate to organise football in spite of the many challenges.
Forde stressed the importance of club management, continuity and youth development in order to take the game forward. The tournament, which was launched against the backdrop of Mother’s Day, bears the message of the fight against domestic abuse, with the captains of the first two teams reading short messages to that effect.
