Group stage action in the Linden leg of the 2012, Guinness Greatest of the Street Futsal competition continued on Tuesday evening at the Silver City Hard Court with six of the eight fixtures producing results.
Just like the opening night on Sunday, fans in the mining town were treated to an exciting brand of all-round street football which resulted in a total of 28 goals being scored. Just one less than the match day one games, which saw 29 goals scored.
The highlights of the evening were two lively end-to-end encounters between Street Vybz and HI-Stars along with Hardknock and Trainline Warriors. Although both of these games finished 1-1, numerous attempts on goal were made by the quartet of teams. But very good defending forced each side to orchestrate incisive plays in order to find the goal.
Adrian Edmundson, I. Webster, Darrel George and S. Breweley produced the best individual performances on the night, scoring two goals each.
These double strikers aided their respective teams Coomacka United, El Dorado and Retrieve Unknowns and ½ Mile/1 Mile in securing 3-1, 5-2 and 3-0 triumphs over Exodus and $100 Cars 2, Baresenal and Scheme.
The competition continues on Sunday with a further eight preliminary matches at the New Silver City Secondary School.
