League leaders Cougars FC suffer upset defeat

League leader Cougars FC slipped to an unlikely 1-0 loss to Hopetown Rangers, when the Berbice zone in the National Milling Company (NAMILCO) U17 Football League continued on Friday

Staged at the Burnham Park ground in New Amsterdam, Dave Torrington was the difference on the day in the reduced 60 minute affair, uncorking a right foot shot into the roof of the net in the 29th minute.

With the win, Hopetown climb into the second position on 15 points, while Cougars remain on the top spot on 15 points due to their superior goal differential.

The event resumes today at the Skeldon Estate ground, with a doubleheader. At 14:00hrs, Monedderlust FC battles the home team Corriverton Links FC, while Young Strikers FC, of Liverpool Corentyne engages Paradise Invaders at 16:00hrs.
