Grove Hi Tech are ahead of their rivals by the slimmest of margins following the third day of action in the Third Edition of the annual East Bank Football Association (EBFA) / Ralph Green Under-11 League which was contested at the Diamond Community Centre Ground on Saturday last.
The matches were switched to this venue from the New Diamond Grove Primary School Ground since that venue was being used for the just concluded Local Government Elections.
The widest margins of victory on the day were recorded by Diamond Upsetters and Agricola Red Triangle which defeated Samatta Point/Kaneville and Kuru Kururu Warriors by identical 5-0 score lines.
Hararuni Eagles and Herstelling Raiders recorded their first wins of the league, while Timehri Panthers continued their winning ways whilst Grove Hi Tech were held to an exciting 2-2 draw by Swan Football Club.
Diamond Upsetters, led by a double each from Mohamed Amin in the 1st and 29th minutes and Huzaifa Kasim 15th and 25th minutes along with an own goal from Akeem Francois in the 6th minute was too much for Samatta Point to handle.
Mickel Morris blasted to a helmet-trick to lead Agricola Red Triangle past Kuru Kururu Warriors. Morris was on target in the 21st, 25th, 30th and 31st minutes; Seon Grant backed up with one of his own in the 14th minute.
Hararuni Eagles soared to their first win of the tournament by a solid 2-0 margin over the previously unbeaten, Diamond United. Josiah Ross in the 4th and Richmond Kanhai in the 29th minute were the players on target for the winners.
Herstelling Raiders also posted their first win of the league and a tense one it was as they prevailed 3-2 over Friendship All Stars storming back from being two goals down. Friendship All Stars had cantered into the lead thanks to goals from Lloyd Baker in the 1st minute and Jaden McLean in the 10th minute.
At that point, the Friendship lads were riding high and could not anticipate the fight back that was on the horizon from the Herstelling boys. Timothy Melville halved the deficit in the 12th minute, while Herstelling drew level when Melville achieved his double in the 14th minute.
The winning goal was converted by Ray Singh in the 29th minute to snatch a memorable win for the young Raiders.
Timehri Panthers continued their unbeaten run with a 2-0 triumph over Mocha Champs. Their goals were scored by Jadon Tasher in the 13th minute and Omar Sam in the 17th minute. And Grove High Tech was held to a 2-2 draw by Swan FC which showed great resolve in fighting back from being two goals down.
Jason Pluck and Joshua Fredericks had placed Grove into the lead though goals in the 3rd and 14th minute but the second half was all Swan’s as they fired back with unanswered goals in the 19th and 29th minutes thanks to Mc Lennon Roberts and Anderson Webster.
The league will continue on Saturday at the same venue with six more matches.
