U-13 Football: East Bank, West Berbice and Upper Demerara secure wins
The Tiger Rentals/Guyana Football Federation Under-13 Football tournament continued at the National Training Facility, Providence, with East Bank Football Association (EBFA), West Berbice Academy Training Centre and Upper Demerara locked in the winner’s row after Saturday.
In the first match, EBFA defeated Bartica 2-0 while West Berbice proved too good for West Demerara with a similar 2-0 victory.
Twelve-year-old Nicholai Archer and Clifton Sampson accounted for East Bank goals with one each, while Quivion Julius of Rosignol Secondary scored the first for West Berbice with Leron Grosvenor getting the second.
More so, East Coast was held to a 1-1 draw by Georgetown ATC after being up 1-0 thanks to Mark Glasgow but Darius Chester found the back of the net to ensure Georgetown walked away with a point.
Meanwhile, Upper Demerara defeated East Berbice 3-0 in the fourth and final game. Devon Stuart got two goals while Darius Chester scored the other.
The tournament will feature clubs and Academy Training Centers (ATC) going head to head for top honours while member associations of the GFF have been funded to run inter-association football tournaments.
On January 7, the EBFA kicked off their inter-association tournament with two matches at the NTC. Diamond United edged Agricola Red triangle 4-3 while Timehri A team defeated Herstelling Raiders 8-0.
