KFC Elite League: GDF, Slingerz stay perfect

The Guyana Defence Force (GDF) Football Club and Slingerz FC continued their winning ways on Saturday night to maintain their positions at the top of the KFC Elite League points table.
The Sixth Season of the Elite League continued with a doubleheader at the Guyana Football Federation’s (GFF’s) National Training Centre (NTC) at Providence, East Bank Demerara as Slingerz FC drubbed a dismal Buxton United 6-0.
The League’s current highest goal scorer, Marcus Tudor, extended his already long tally by opening the scoring for Slingerz in the 36th minute, and recording a goal 3 minutes later to make it a 2-0 game. The half ended 2-0, as Buxton managed to hold off the Slingerz assault of their net.
Gabriel De Souza continued the scoring for the West Demerara Football Association (WDFA) team in the 55th minute, after which Darron Niles went on to complete his hattrick. Niles found the back of the net in the 60th, 83rd and 90th+2 minutes to cap off Slingerz’s dominant win.

Western Tigers (yellow) could not hold off the marauding GDF for more than 45 minutes

In the following game, Western Tigers challenged the defending Champions GDF FC, but could maintain their intensity for only the first 45 minutes.
The first half ended in a goalless affair, as both defensive lines worked over time to keep each other at bay. However, GDF came back more determined in the second half, and were finally rewarded with a goal off the boots of Abumuchi Benjamin in the 50th minute.
Seven minutes later, Stephen McDonald extended GDF’s tally, while Sherwyn Caesar added the cherry on top, in the 90th+2, for GDF’s 3-0 win.
The KFC Elite League will continue this Thursday, April 18, with a solitary game on the cards. A much-needed three points will be up for grabs by either Santos FC or Monedderlust FC in a clash scheduled to begin at 19:00hrs.
