Persistent rain in the mining town of Linden has forced the Upper Demerara Football Association (UDFA) to cancel its league format championship for the Guyana Football federation (GFF) /NAMILCO Under-17 tournament into a knockout competition for Linden teams.
In a release the UDFA, who are staging the tournament on behalf of the Guyana Football Federation (GFF), made the adjustment to ensure the tournament produces the representative Linden team for the national playoffs.
The UDFA squashed the matches played earlier in the tournament and now has a knock championship which starts this afternoon Saturday at the Wisburg Secondary School ground.
The first game in this new competition will see from 13:00hrs game one pitting Botafago versus Coomacka Mines, while in game two Milerock are facing Hilltop United from 15.00hrs.
Tomorrow another double header will be played at the same venue and Amelia’s Ward United will face Topp XX from 13:00hrs and the other game will feature Eagles United and Hi Stars from 15:00hrs.
The UDFA has indicated that if a game is deadlocked at the end of regulation time, the decision is to go directly to penalty kicks and an official said that next weekend is set for staging the semifinals.
