Conquerors warm up for Elite League resumption with win over Santos

Fruta Conquerors continued their preparation for the resumption of the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) Elite League on a positive note, downing Santos 4-2 on Friday at the Tucville Community ground.

Eon Alleyne handed the host the lead in the fifth minute, cutting in from the left side, before hammering a right foot shot into the back of the net.

Alleyne then made it 2-0 in the 12th minute, slotting his effort into the back of the net, after receiving a right side cross from Simeon Moore.

Santos pulled one back in the 20th minute, as Keith Caines netted, unleashing a strike which took a deflection off defender Trevon Lythcott and settled into the right side.

However, Pernell Schultz restored the two goal advantage for Fruta Conquerors in the 25thminute, blasting a powerful right foot shot from just outside the 18 yard box, which sailed into the right corner.

Schultz made his presence felt once more in the 37th minute, racing in from the left flank, before thumping a right foot attempt into the lower right corner.

Santos eventually grabbed another consolation goal in the 88th minute, as Caines rounded the advancing goalkeeper inside the left of the box and finished into the lower left side. The GFF Elite League is set to resume on February 2nd.
