Fruta Conquerors and Western Tigers stayed unbeaten in the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) ‘Elite League’ after defeating Ann’s Grove and Milerock respectively Friday at the Mackenzie Sports Club (MSC) ground, Linden.
The Tucville-based giant downed the East Coast Demerara unit 3-0.
Jermin Junior opened the scoring in the second minute, heading the ball over the advancing goalkeeper from inside the box.
Veteran forward Anthony `Awo’ Abrams doubled their lead in the 79th minute, racing onto a through pass before dribbling a defender and firing a powerful effort into the top left corner of the net.
The score line was then sealed in the fourth minute of stoppage time when Eon Alleyne scored, blasting his effort into the lower left side, after racing onto a through pass.
In the other fixture, Western Tigers overcame a one goal deficit to edge Milerock 2-1. The Linden unit took the lead in the fifth minute when Kester Randolph scored from the penalty mark.
However, Andrew Murray Jr., equalised in the 43rd minute with a curling free-kick which sailed over the wall and settled to the right corner, from just outside the left of the 18-yard area.
