Limacol Knockout Football Tournament…
The Limacol Knockout Football tournament continued over the past weekend with a massive double-header in which, in a series of twists and thrills that left the vociferous crowd satisfied at the end of the night’s proceedings, Pouderoyen defeated Grove Hi-Tec 2 – 1 and Georgetown Football Club (GFC) trounced Buxton Stars 4 – 1, to truly show that only time can tell the final outcome of this tournament.
Pouderoyen and Grove Hi Tec were both looking for wins in the competition, and their intent was fully expressed on field with both sides’ playing an attacking style of play. In a game filled with trips, flips and appeals, Denzil Crawford was able to place his team in a comfortable position with a one goal advantage in the 13th minute.
Already having a goal to their name, Grove Hi Tec continu
ed to play in a desperate hunt for the second; and as time elapsed, desperation got the better of them and the players seemed to slack up, leaking opportunities to the opposing team.
Pouderoyen wasted no time in capitalising, sinking their first goal in the 65th
minute off the boots of Sebastian Edwards. The shock took a toll on Grove Hi Tec, as Ashley Harding came through for his team as he did in their previous match, with a goal in the 70th minute. The encounter ended 2-1 in The West Coast team’s favour.
