Camptown overwhelm Flamingo 4-1

Stag Beer football

Sunburst Camptown swamped Flamingo by a 4-1 margin when the Stag Beer sponsored Georgetown Football Association (GFA) first division league continued on Wednesday at the Tucville Community ground.

Kwame La Fleur opened the scoring for the Campbellville side in the fourth minute, tackling the ball into the lower right-hand corner of the net, after fortuitously receiving a clearance inside the six-yard box.

Their lead would be doubled in the 15th minute through veteran midfielder Troy ‘Bugs’ Prescod who placed his first time left-footed effort into the lower right hand corner from just inside the centre of the area, following a left-sided cross by Reshawn Sandiford.

It would become 3-0 in the 24th minute as Sandiford scored through a right-footed penalty kick conversion into the lower left hand side of the net, following a rash challenge inside the area.

Camptown would further add to their score in the 48th minute as La Fleur netted his second, compliments of a simple tap-in, unmarked inside the right side of the box, after collecting a pass from the left side of the field.

However the Campbellville team would suffer two setbacks with minutes of each other as Kenneth Jackson and Jermaine Blue both picked up their second bookable offence in the 70th and 72nd minutes respectively.

Flamingo would quickly capitalise on their numerical advantage, scoring their only success of the matchup as Ravi Chand netted three minutes later with a finish to the left hand corner of the goal, from inside the centre of the penalty area.
