Wales FC edge Jetty Gunners for second win

WDFA Stag Beer League

Wales Football Club secured its second win in the Stag Beer sponsored West Demerara Football Association (WDFA) Senior League edging Jetty Gunners 1-0 yesterday at the Den Amstel ground.

Seon Lynch was the difference on the day as he found the back of the net in the 39th minute to clinch the hard-fought and at times bruising affair.

Wales walked away with three points and are now in sixth position with eight points while Jetty Gunners remain on five points and in eighth place.

The matchup was anything but a technical display as both teams were very guilty of wasting chances in an open contest which could have gone either way.

However, in front of a small gathering, Lynch made his presence felt six minutes before the halftime interval as he fired a right foot shot past the advancing custodian.

Racing onto a through pass from the left side down the centre of the field, the nippy attacker unleashed a well-placed strike from the top of the penalty box into the right corner, with only the goalkeeper in his path.

Although Jetty Gunners tried desperately to seize an equalizer in the second half, the nature of the contest took its toll on their ranks as two players were issued with red cards.

Brian Rodriguez was first to make his exit as he collected his second yellow card for a rash challenge in the 65th minute.

He was soon followed by Ryan Haynes five minutes later who also was guilty of receiving his second yellow card for an infraction. The numerical handicap played into the hands of Wales who saw out the encounter to clinch the result.

The event will resume at the same venue today with another doubleheader. In the opening fixture, Stewartville will lock horns with Vege Boyz from 13:00hrs while the feature affair will witness leaders Den Amstel matching skills with Eagles FC.
