GFF/Stag Elite League Finale…

Alpha United and Pele FC seemed to shrug-off their indifferent performances in the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) Stag Elite League Finale with their second successive wins on the trot at the Georgetown Football Club (GFC), Bourda on Wednesday.

In the first match, Alpha United made light work of Monedderlust   in their 3-1 victory over the Berbice team.

Colin Nelson was the man to get the ball rolling for Alpha as he struck goal in the 31st and in the space of one minute, Alpha were up by two goals as Anthony Abrams continued his impressive goal scoring form to hit the back of the net in the 32nd.

The Berbice based side, never looked like they were completely out of the match as they found goal in the 39th from a shot by Kevin Layne to end an eventful first half.

Monedderlust bid to find an equalizer seemed to be blockaded by Alpha’s backline but on the other side of the field, forward Dwight Peters ensured that any chance of the opposition making a comeback would be nullified when hit the back net in the 84th.

With the win, Alpha now moves two points behind second place Fruta Conquerors, with 20 point by copping their sixth in ten matches.

Mondedderlust on the other hand, have lost their sixth match from ten matches and remain among the bottom placed teams on the table.

The other match saw Gregory Richards’ goal in the 32nd minute proved to be winner for Pele in their clash against Buxton United as the scores ended 1-0.

Pele would be grateful for the points, as now just one point separates them from the top four.
