With the defending champions Uprising out of contention in this year’s East Coast Zone Guinness ‘Greatest of the Streets’ Competition, the buzz over who will be the new champions is dominating the conversation among fans and the respective team supporters with just over 24 hours to go.
The semi-finals and final is set to highlight the Easter activities on the East Coast with Haslington Market Tarmac anticipated to be besieged with people eager to see a new champion crowned.
The competition which has grown in popularity and participation over the years to become the most eagerly anticipated event in the shorter version of the game, will conclude this evening and the feedback is that the surrounding communities and those further afield are excited to witness the impending showdown between the four remaining teams.
The hot favourites are Paradise A, whose form have rightly installed them as the team to beat, but Victoria Church Yard, a team that is a model of consistency over the years could have the final say in the tournament’s outcome.
Then there is debutant Lilliendaal Hustlers, who after a few uninspiring performances suddenly found form to qualify for the semi-finals with an impressive display.
Melanie B is the other semi-finalist and they too have a legitimate chance to go all the way and should not be underestimated.
Paradise A will have in their line-up the cool, but deadly Quincy Adams, who to many has been the tournament’s Most Valuable Player and he will have in support Tyreek Cummings.
On the other hand, Hustlers will look to players such as Tevin Fowler, Sunil Logan, Stephon Reynolds and Anthony Sancho to lead their quest for victory.
Victoria Church Yard will no doubt be depending on performance of Rashleigh Morrison to secure their spot in the final, while Melanie B’s chances of advancing rest surely on how well Odell Gulliver and Ryan Seales perform.
However, before the two semi-finals are played there will be action in the Plate Section and former champs Uprising will have a chance to win some consolation if they could capture the winner-take-all $60,000 up for grabs.
They face BV A in the first game, while Belfield Warriors take on Buxton Diamond in the other with the winners to collide in the final.
