With only two week-ends of Premier League football remaining, the top teams continue to trade positions with no one team really cementing a place at the top of the heap. Alpha United with a come from behind 2-1 win over Santos have once again vaulted into the top spot ahead of Pele. On Friday night at the Georgetown Football Club ground, Alpha fell behind Santos early after a sterling solo run from Santos Captain Renault Fraser and a powerful right foot shot sent the Santos team one clear. The equalizer was to come just a minute from lemon time from a floated ball into the Santos area which eluded the goalkeeper and which Jermaine Fraser could only head into his own goal.
The two teams then went into the break locked on one goal apiece with all to play for in the second half. On the resumption, Andrew Murray jr. who had missed a golden opportunity in the first half, made amends tucking in the decider for Alpha. With six wins, four draws and two losses, Alpha have now claimed sole position at the top of the Premiership on 22 points while Santos with the loss slid to second to last just behind the Guyana Defence Force on goal difference and above last placed Police.
In the earlier game Camptown and GDF paled to a one all draw with each team taking home one point as a result. Jaganauth Peters opened the scoring for GDF in the 27th minute while Troy Prescod ensured the draw for the Campbellville side on the stroke of halftime. With 15 points Camptown remains in the fifth spot in the Premiership. Today second placed Pele on 19 points, could cause another shakeup in the standings when they take on Western Tigers who are currently fourth. In the supporting game third placed Fruta Conquerors will lock horns with Police. Kickoff time is 15:30 hrs.
