Guyana Rush Saints open tournament on a high

Theresa & George Bobb – RFA 7-a-side Women’s football…

In play in the Theresa and George Bobb–RFA Under-17 Women’s round-robin Football 2019 tournament, Guyana Rush Saints yesterday recorded their first win — by a 2–1 margin — against Far East Sports Club as the tournament entered its second day.

Zena Cabral

The winning goals came compliments of a brace from Zena Cabral in the third and thirty-third minutes respectively, while Far East SC’s Waynedella Hernandez was the lone scorer for her team, giving the three points to Guyana Rush Saints.
While the match was initially delayed by the inclement weather, when the first whistle sounded, Cabral took control of the match, and found the back of the net after a quick pass from her team mate.
At the halfway mark, the score remained at 1-0 in favour of Guyana Rush Saints FC, even though both teams looked very aggressive as a team, and individually in all departments on the pitch.
When the second half of play commenced, Hernandez was given a through pass, and made full use of the goal-scoring opportunity, equalising five minutes into play.
Three minutes later, Number 10, Cabral of Rush Saints FC, again placed her team in a better position by scoring her second goal in the match, and further securing the win.
Unfortunately, Match Number 5, involving Sky Kings FC vs Tabatinga FC, was rescheduled because Sky Kings FC were again unable to travel because of heavy rains, which continue to pose a problem for clubs out of Central Rupununi.
The tournament continues tomorrow, August 9th, 2019, at the St Ignatius Sports Club, with a triple-header which is scheduled to kick off at 17:00hrs.
MATCH 6: Terminators FC vs. Moco FC @17:00hrs
MATCH 7: Gladiators FC vs. Saints FC @ 18:00hrs
MATCH 8: Rising Stars FC vs. Tabatinga FC
