The Petra Organised Corona Football Tournament continued on Wednesday evening and soggy conditions did not hamper a flurry of goals as 29 were scored in the three matches held at the Georgetown Football Club (GFC), Bourda.
The upset of the night was Camptown’s 1-0 win over the host. Ozei Small struck the only goal of the match in the 43rd minute after which his team withstood a barrage of shots of goals by the opposition to secure a vital three points in their opening fixture.
The other two matches were more a one-sided affair, with Police and Western Tigers dominating their opponents.
