Two-time defending champs Sparta Boss reached the elimination round of the Guinness Greatest of the Streets after edging edging fierce rival Channel-9 Warriors 1-0 Thursday. In what was a must-win clash in front of a mammoth crowd at the National Cultural Centre tarmac, the holders produced a gritty performance to secure the win. Unlikely hero Cleyon Forrester placed his effort into the back of the net in the fifth minute to stun the partisan crowd which brazed the pouring rain.
Meanwhile, Ol Skool Ballers kept their hopes alive of clinching a knockout berth by edging Gaza Squad 1-0. Roy Cassou scored in the 15th minute.
Also, West Front Road dismissed North Ruimveldt 2-0 through goals from Deon Alfred in the sixth and seventh minute.
In other results, California Square crushed Stabroek Ballers 3-0 while Norton Street downed Sophia by an identical scoreline.
Similarly, Upsetters edged East Front Road 1-0, Kingston defeated New Market Street 1-0 and North East La Penitence overcame Festival City 1-0.
