Wade, Bobb late goals sink Alpha United to help Slingerz stay on top of STAG Elite League (Finale)
In what has grown to become one of the most heated rivalry in local football, the Slingerz versus Alpha United did not disappoint fans, when the two sides met earlier this evening at the Tucville Community Centre Ground, in the opening game of the STAG Elite League Finale double-header.
In the end, it was Slingerz FC who kept their unbeaten record in the league intact, after edging Alpha United 2 – 1 in an entertaining contest.
The two teams had played to a goalless first half, despite both sides getting their fair chances of finding the net. However, veteran striker Anthony ‘Awo’ Abrams in the 60th minute, scored for Alpha United to give the ‘Hammer’ a 1 – 0 advantage.
But things took a turn when Alpha United was reduced to nine men, as Anthony ‘Natural’ Benfield and Abrams were both shown the ‘red’.
The Vergenoegen based club, winners of the League’s Genesis Championship (Slingerz FC), took advantage of the short-handed Alpha United, and would equalise through Dominican forward Julian Wade and while Trayon Bobb put the icing on the cake for Coach Joseph ‘Bill’ Wilson’s team.
Meanwhile, up to press time, the score between home side Fruta Conquerors and Monedderlust was nil.
