The semifinal lineups for this year inaugural Linden Town Week, Linden Mayor’s Cup football tournament was decided on Sunday night when number two ranked Net Rockers and the Haynes and Lewis Winners Connection defeated Blueberry Hill United and Silver Shattas respectively on Sunday night at the Mackenzie Sports Club ground.
Shaquille Frank would get a brace as the Winners Connection who turned back the challenge of the Shattas by a 3-1 score in the first game of the night, as Net Rockers eliminated Blueberry Hill United 2-1.
The Winners Connection gained the lead through a 10thminute Rennard Caesar header from a squared ball put in from Cedric Hunt for a 1-0 advantage.
Goal number two came after a feed to Frank would allow him to score his first goal in the 39th minute for a 2-0 score-line, which they held until the first half ended.
Captain Marley Davidson would facilitate the Winners Connection third goal as he sent Frank away in the 54th minute.
But Rehu Regis pulled one back after a defensive lapse by the Winners Connection occurred in the 62ndminute but the game was beyond the Shattas and ended with victory for the Winners Connection 3-1.
Game two began with Net Rockers gaining a 4th minute goal against Blueberry Hill to put them into the lead through Royston Fraser.
Before the first half would end the Rockers doubled that score when Joel Isaacs completed a fine play to score in the 27thminute and give the Rockers a 2-0 lead.
However, Blueberry Hill would cut that lead when off a defensive error by the Rockers goalkeeper, allowing Karon Noble to capitalize and score soon after play resumed in the second half in the 46thminute.
