…Den Amstel add 3 points to tally

Den Amstel FC (white) drubbed Buxton United 4-1

Berbice Football Association’s (BFA’s) Monedderlust FC were all smiles at the Guyana Football Federation’s (GFF’s) National Training Center (NTC) on Tuesday night, after narrowly getting past Ann’s Grove United in a hard-fought battle, by which they picked up their first full three points of the sixth season with a 2-1 victory.
Atlyn Brown opened the scoring for the Berbice side in the 27th minute, and it wasn’t until the second half that Shaquan Moore of Ann’s Grove levelled the scores in the 68th. Then in the 80th minute, Monedderlust were granted a penalty opportunity, which was successfully converted by Stephon Moore to seal the victory.
Later in the evening, Den Amstel added 3 points to their tally with a 4-1 victory over a hapless Buxton United FC. Anthony Benn was the first to add his name to the scoresheet, in the 8th minute, and Gideon Payne made it a 2-0 affair in Den Amstel’s favour in the 19th.
