KFC Elite League: Slingerz, GDF extend unbeaten run

It was a 3-0 kind of night on Saturday at the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) National Training Centre (NTC), Providence, East Bank Demerara (EBD), as so-far-unbeaten teams Slingerz Football Club and the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) FC maintained their perfect streak.
What was actually a triple-header saw the Guyana Police Force (GPF) Women’s team give a taste of the excitement to come with a 17-0 thrashing of Pakuri Jaguars in the GFF Women’s Division League One.
Akeelah Vancooten led the charge for the Police women with a burst of five goals in the second half. She netted in the 65th, 71st, 77th, 80th and 80th+2 minutes. Meanwhile, Lakeisha Williams (4th, 45th, 69th) and Melina Larson (21st, 24th, 31st) both netted hat-tricks while Keedola Chester added her name to the scoresheet twice in the 44th and 52nd minutes. Collette Rutherford (11th), Sasha James (31st), Jenelle Edmondson (34th) and Latoya Williams (38th) scored one apiece to push Police’s tally to 17.

Marcus Wilson (on ball) opened the scoring for Slingerz FC

Later on in the evening, an ‘off’ Slingerz FC eased past Den Amstel FC in a West Coast derby, 3-0. Marcus Wilson capitalised on a corner kick to slot in his team’s first and only goal of the first half in the 22nd minute. However, the scoresheet could’ve read at least 5-0 after the first, as Slingerz missed out on a number of great opportunities in front of the goal.
Nevertheless, Curtez Kellman found the back of the net in the 58th minute, while Ricardo Halley did the same in the 78th to ensure Slingerz would remain undefeated after seven games in this year’s league.
The script was almost the same in the following game featuring GDF FC and Ann’s Grove United FC, the only difference being Ann’s Grove’s ability to keep the soldiers at bay until the second segment.
It was Abumuchi Benjamin who broke the ice in the 59th minute and he made it a 2-0 affair in the 74th. Amos Ramsey found the back of the net in the dying minutes of the game to push the score to 3-0 in the 87th minute.
The KFC Elite League is expected to continue on Tuesday, April 23 with a clash between Monedderlust and Buxton United FC at 18:30h. That will be followed by a battle between Western Tigers and Fruta Conquerors FC from 21:00h, both at the Providence venue.
