Pele hold on for draw with GFC

Georgetown Football Club (GFC) were denied their first win in the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) Stag Beer Elite League as a Travis Grant 86th minute goal secured Pele a 1-1 result yesterday at the Leonora Sports Facility.

With the score 1-0 in favour of GFC, Grant snatched the dramatic equaliser as a punched clearance from the GFC goalkeeper fell into the path of Gregory Richardson who fired his effort goal bound only to witness it take a fortuitous deflection and fall into the path of the midfielder who slotted the ball home.

Prior to the dramatic end, GFC had taken the lead in the 40th minute when  Keiron Solomon scored. Stealing the ball off the boot of defender Jumane Somerset, Solomon flicked  the ball over the onrushing goalkeeper and  into the back of the net. With the result, Pele remains in fourth position on 17 points while GFC remains in the cellar position on two points. .

Winner of the League Finale round will pocket $4,000,000 while the second, third and fourth place teams will collect $2,000,000, $1,000,000 and $500,000 respectively. Similarly, the point’s leader prior to the knockout stage will pocket an additional $1,000,000.

The season champion will then be crowned when the winner of the League Genesis and League Finale respectively faceoff in a single matchup. That winner will then earn an automatic berth at the CFU level.

If the winner of the League Genesis and League Finale rounds are the same team, they will earn the automatic CFU spot, with the second berth going to the team with the most accumulated points in both rounds non-inclusive of the eventual season champion.
