Sparta Boss, Bent Street to contest GFF/K&S Futsal final on Saturday
Contrasting semi-final wins on Tuesday evening have placed Sparta Boss and Bent Street into the final of the Guyana Football Federation (GFF)/Kashif and Shanghai Organisation Futsal final on Saturday, January 8, at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.
The ‘new generation’ of Sparta was much too hot to handle for Leopold Street as the favorites produced an emphatic 7-2 triumph.
Ryan Hackett, fresh off his success on the field with Guyana Defence Force in the year-end Super 16 tournament, rocketed Sparta ahead with two quick goals. He completed his hat-trick in the second half.
Leopold Street, who certainly had the crowd behind them, produced numerous near-misses, led by the extremely talented Darron Niles, who at times led a one-man attack on Sparta, but had no goals to show for some stupendous efforts.
Curtez Kellman produced a brace for Sparta, while Esui Phillips and Stephon Alfred were the other men on the scoresheet.
Abumchi Opara and Quincy Adams added some consolation for Leopold Street, who now face Gold is Money in the third place play-off, also on Saturday.
Bent Street is the other side vying for the first prize of G$1 million after they edged Gold is Money 4-3 in a highly entertaining second semi-final.
Daniel Wilson, who was the playmaker for Bent Street, had a brace and was backed up by Colin Nelson and Jermine ‘Pankey’ Junior.
Goals were shared around for the West Ruimveldt unit, as Randolph Wagner, Cecil Johnathon and Marcus Wilson etched their names on the scoresheet.
Saturday’s final will also see the Most Valuable Player riding off in Hero 150cc motorcycle, compliments of Rose Ramdehol Auto Sales.
