Dave & Celina, Silver Bullets to clash in Linden Guinness final
Dave and Celina and Silver Bullets will face off in the final of the Linden leg of the Guinness Greatest of the Streets small goal football competition, following the conclusion of semi-final action on Tuesday evening.
After losing their first game of the tournament, Dave and Celina Allstars have managed to find their way into the final of the tournament.
While not the easiest road to the final, scratching and clawing their way into the ultimate game of the tournament, Dave and Celina’s grit and will was enough to get them past Swag Entertainment.
The game ended 2-2, with Dave and Celina surviving a late onslaught from Swag Entertainment to get to a penalty shootout that they won 2-0.
Earlier, Mortimer Giddings put Dave and Celina up 2-0 with back-to-back strikes in the ninth and 12th minutes, before Swag Entertainment came storming back with goals from Royston Fraser in the 23rd minute and Shane Luckie in the 35th minute.
Meanwhile, Silver Bullets were on fire against High Rollers, making it to the final with a 4-0 win. From the first whistle, Silver Bullets were in attack mode and struck early with a goal from Jermaine Samuels in the seventh minute.
High Rollers would miss a few chances that definitely caused them in the end as Samuels struck again in the 27th minute to go up 2-0.
The fast pace of the game continued and High Rollers seemed the worse for wear out of the two sides as they started shooting from all parts of the court.
Samuels struck again in the 38th minute with the strike counting as a Guinness goal, which meant that the goal counted as two because it was scored in the last three minutes of the match.
The final between the two teams will be played on Saturday in Linden at the Mackenzie Bus Park Square.
