Fraser’s magic powers GDF to victory over Monedderlust
GFF/Stag Elite League Finale
Delroy Fraser’s magical performance propelled the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) to a resounding 4-2 win over Monedderlust in the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) Stag Elite League Finale on Sunday at the Track and Field Facility, Leonora.
Fraser, who plays in the attacking midfield position, put his team in the lead with a goal in the 16th minute, followed by another in the 26th, as the soldiers were in total control until the opposition’s Keron McDonald hit a double in the space of two minutes (36th and 38th)
to level the scores at half time.
After the break, both sides continued to force for another goal but nothing materialised until Fraser used his magic once more to find the back of the net in the 75th and break the deadlock.
Fraser’s fourth goal in the 86th pummelled the Monedderlust to their ninth loss in thirteen matches as the Berbice side sit in the penultimate position on the table of the eight teams.
The match certainly had more in it for GDF as their fifth win means they are locked on points with Pele FC for the fourth place position but a superior goal difference give Pele the edge.
In the other match of the double header, Fruta Conquerors rebounded from their horrific performance against Slingerz FC, which they lost 8-1, to win against a spirited Georgetown Football Club (GFC) .
A double by Hubert Pedro, gave their side 2-0 victory and also their tenth win of the Finale which should see them finishing in the second place.
Pedro’s first goal came five minutes into the game, from a classical free-kick that found the back of the net. The men from Bourda did not seem too phased by the early set back as they rallied effortlessly to find an equaliser but to no avail. The first half eventually ended in the favour of the men in orange.
Pedro struck once more in the 80th minute to seal the win for his team, which meant GFC horrific season continued as they were now on the receiver’s end of an eleventh loss in thirteen matches to occupy the cellar position on the table.
The League continues on Monday May 16 at the Tucville ground where another double header is set to unfold when GDF play GFC from 18:30 hrs and then the home side Fruta Conquerors play Pele FC from 20:30 hrs.
