Fruta Conquerors maul Beacons 8-1

Georgetown Football Association first division league

Fruta Conquerors rebounded from their earlier loss, mauling Beacons by an 8-1 margin when the Stag Beer-sponsored Georgetown Football Association (GFA) first division league continued on Wednesday at the Georgetown Football Club (GFC) ground.

Jahaal Greaves led the assault as he opened the scoring in the sixth minute with a simple tap in down the middle of the goal from the centre of the area, after latching onto an Eon Alleyne left-sided cross.

Greaves would double the scores in the 26th minute, placing his right-footed attempt into the centre of the net from within the right side of the area.

Dwayne Lawrence would make it 3-0 four minutes later, finishing his right-footed attempt into the right- hand corner of the net from within the left side of the 18-yard box, after rounding the keeper in a one-on-one situation.

The Tucville side would enjoy a four-goal cushion in the 41st minute as Alleyne netted through a right- footed strike into the right-hand corner of the net, from within the centre of the penalty area.

The goals would continue to rain as Greaves completed his hat trick one minute later with a strike to the lower left-hand corner from the middle of the area, after racing onto a through pass from Lawrence within the centre of the field.

Rafael Edwards would complete a dominant first half showing for the Tucville outfit in the 45th minute, heading his effort into the right hand corner from within the 18-yard box, following a Kareem Knights left-sided cross from a free kick.

The lopsided nature would persist in the second period as Greaves sealed his helmet trick in the 51st minute with a strike down the centre of the goal from within the box, after latching onto another through pass.

Beacons would then have their custodian Keith Fraser shown a straight red card for denying Lawrence a clear goal scoring opportunity in a one-on-one situation within the penalty box in the 68th minute.

However Lawrence would be shown a red card, picking up his second bookable offence seconds later for unsporting conduct.

The resulting spot-kick would be calmly dispatched by midfielder Shaquille Davis in the 68th minute, lashing his flat-right footed effort into the lower left-hand corner of the net.

Chris Galloway would net a consolation goal for Beacons in the 74th minute, curling his right-footed effort into the top left-hand corner of the net from within the right side of the penalty area.
