Home Sports Riddim Squad, Buxton Stars, Beacon, Santos to battle tonight
Limacol Knockout Football Tournament
The Ministry of Education Ground on Carifesta Avenue will again host the Limacol Knockout Football competition tonight. The tournament, whose third installment began about three weeks ago, provides an opportunity for community teams and other clubs to showcase their raw skill.
Matches in the tournament will continue this evening when Riddim Squad faces Buxton Stars in the first encounter at 18:00 hrs. Coming off of a shocking loss, Buxton will look to improve their game at the back end, having conceded three goals within their final 10 minutes of playing time.
On the other hand, Riddim Squad is currently in a comfortable position after the last match went their way. In fact, it was a 3-0 win for Riddim Squad, which gives a massive confidence boost to the otherwise formidable team.
As the evening winds down, Santos will have their first meeting with Beacon FC at 20:00 hrs. It will truly be a clash of the titans, with each team already registering a remarkable win over the course of the tournament. Beacon will be very confident, after stealing a win in their last match. Despite it being a 1-0 encounter, Beacon’s defence played strongly to prevent the opposing side from scoring.
Santos played to a draw in their first match. However, the longstanding team made a great comeback in their last match to register a victory. Thanks to two beauties from their player Keith Cains, the team was able to make it over the line while holding off its opponents from scoring.
A total of 12 teams are currently competing for first place glory, with Group A featuring a mixture of experience and youth in Guyana Police Force, Pele Football Club, Northern Rangers and Mahaica Determinators. Over in Group B, Campton, Georgetown Football Club, Riddim Squad and Buxton Stars will fight for the most points in the group; while Group C: Santos, Pouderoyen, Grove Hi Tec and Beacons Football Club, are competing against each other in the round robin segment. The winner of the tournament is slated to receive a cash prize of $600,000.
