Alpha United to face old enemy BK Western Tigers

— Fruta Conquerors One Love football

The quarterfinal round of the Namilco-sponsored Fruta Conquerors One Love Knockout Festival will continue today at the Tucville Community Centre ground with a mouthwatering doubleheader.

In the feature contest at 20:00hrs, Caribbean Football Union (CFU) contenders and leading local side Alpha United will faceoff with the old enemy BK Western Tigers, in what is expected to be an exciting affair.

Forced to overcome Buxton United 12-11 on sudden death kicks after a 0-0 score line at the end of normal and extra time, the West Ruimveldt giants will need an improved offensive showing from the likes of Hubert Pedro, Randolph Wagner and Stellon David, if they are to emerge with the win w.

Defeating a spirited Monedderlust side by a 2-0 margin in their earlier matchup, Alpha will look to their dangerous quartet of Gregory Richardson, Dwight Peters, Kithson Bain and Andrew Murray Jr. to power them to another victory.

In the opening quarterfinal fixture at 18:00hrs, the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) will engage the very formidable Vergenoegen outfit Slingerz FC, in what promises to be a high scoring showdown.

Brushing aside Netrockers 6-0 in their previous matchup, Slingerz will need another clinical performance led by the trio of Vurlon Mills, Devon Millington and Tichard Joseph, if a place in the final four is to be realised.

Dismantling BV/Triumph United by an identical score in their round of 16 matchup, the army side, led by Eusi Phillips, Fraser siblings Delroy and Delwyn and Royan Morrison, will attempt to book their semi-final at the expense of their rivals.
