Soesdyke and Grove to clash in EBFA Senior KO final on Sunday
Soesdyke Falcons have earned the right to battle Grove Hi Tech in Sunday’s (November 18) final of the East Bank Football Association (EBFA) knockout competition. The same two teams will also be the association’s representatives at the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) Super 16 tournament year-end.
Contesting the lone semi-final of the competition, which attracted 13 clubs, at the Diamond Community Centre Ground on Sunday last, Soesdyke, making a comeback at the senior level were outplayed, but buried one of the few chances created and that was all that was needed to send their neighbours, Timehri Panthers packing.
Colin McLean found the back of the nets in the 38th minute to punch Soesdyke’s ticket to Sunday final and a date with Grove Hi Tech, the association’s number one club over the past couple of years. Kick-off time on Sunday will be 14:30h.
Prior to meeting Timehri, Soesdyke had a solid win over Herstelling Raiders by a 4-1 margin, but will find the going tough against the rampant Grove Hi Tech side which has scored a total of 24 goals so far without letting in any.
Grove had trounced Samatta Point/Kaneville 14-0 in their opening fixture before walking past Kuru Kururu Warriors 10-0.
