Pouderoyen, Police strike on second night of Limacol league

first_imgThe Limacol Knockout footfall tournament continued on Monday evening with two more exciting encounters at the Ministry of Education ground.In the first of the two matchups, Pouderoyen and Beacon FC were slated to compete, with both teams now playing their first match of the tournament, the encounter was sure to be exciting as both would want to get their points ticking.After what seemed like a tense first half, Pouderoyen shockingly took the lead with a goal from Esan Nelson a few minutes before the whistle was blown, signaling the end of the first half. Acting on the momentum they got from their goal in the first half, Quessey Alleyne netted another one for the ecstatic Pouderoyen team in the 48th minute.Knowing they had to make a comeback or suffer a defeat, Beacon began to play harder but it was to no avail. Trying their best to bounce back, Kimba Brathwaite netted the team’s first and only goal, but it was indeed a little too late for them. Pouderoyen won 2-1.Minutes later, Police and Northern Rangers took to the field for the second matchup of the evening. With Nothern Rangers settling for a draw and Police completely missing out in their respective first matches, both sides hungry for a win. The experience in both teams was clearly displayed as they pulled out all the stops to restrict the opponents. As such, the defense was on an all-time high for both teams as they came up with one near miss after the other. After a goalless first half and quiet for much of the second half, Rawle Haynes of the Police team finally got a rewarding breakthrough in the 70th minute allowing his team to take the lead and eventually the game.The Limacol knockout tournament which is organized by the Petra Organization continues on Friday September 7, with Campton FC facing off with Georgetown Football Club (GFC) at 18:00h and then at 20:00h Santos FC will clash with Grove Hi Tec.
