Following the end of group play among the 12 teams contesting the 4th edition of the East Bank Football Association (EBFA) Under-11 League sponsored by USA based Guyanese Ralph Green, the four teams to contest the semi finals have been decided.
Yesterday was the final day of group play and saw Vurlon Mills Academy closing off with a 2-0 win over Eagles Football Club of Stewartville to end with the most points of all the teams as they also posted the most wins, four out of five matches and was also the lone team not to concede a goal.
Scoring for Mills Academy was Romario La Rose in the 25th minute and Shaquille Dhrymple three minutes later.
Kuru Kururu Warriors waltzed into the semis without breaking a sweat, gather three points and two goals which took them past Agricola Red Triangle as Swan Football Club, their Linden Soesdyke Highway neigbours, failed to show up.
Also winning via a similar route was Friendship All Stars (their first win) over Grove Hi Tech which also failed to turn up. These two walk over’s were the first for the tournament which had kicked off on September 14.
The biggest win of the day was recorded by Diamond United which defeated Fruta Conquerors 6-0. Rick Ramatar converted the second helmet-trick of the tournament in leading Diamond United to the biggest win of the tournament which bettered Fruta Conquerors and Agricola Red Triangle’s 4-0 triumphs over Eagles and Friendship All Stars, respectively.
Ramatar’s performance has also seen him take over the leader board for the most goals in the competition, he ended on seven; Timehri panthers’ Jaden Tasher has five. Ramatar scored in the
3rd, 5th, 7th and 17th minute with the other goals coming off the boots of Iouson Da Silva (10) and Danile Morgan in the 28th minute.
