Fruta Conquerors climbed atop the Guyana Football Federation [GFF] Elite League standings, overcoming Den Amstel 2-1 on Sunday at the National Track and Field Centre, Leonora.
Following a scoreless first half period, Den Amstel took the lead in the 51st minute compliments of a Delon Lanferman strike.
It was a moment of quality from the burly forward, who uncorked a thunderous strike from 30 yards, which fizzed into the top right corner.
Den Amstel’s lead would last for 28 minutes, as Eon Alleyne equalised from the penalty mark, following a hand-ball infraction.
The Tucville unit then snatched the win in the 90th minute, as Domini Garnette scored, slotting home into the back of the net from the right of the box, after collecting a left side pass from Anthony Belfield.
Meanwhile, defending champion Guyana Defence Force (GDF) crushed Ann’s Grove 4-0. Delroy Fraser recorded a second half brace in the 64th and 76th minute, while Shawn Arthur and Sherwin Caesar scored in the sixth and 90th+3 minute apiece.
Also, Buxton United edged fierce rival Victoria Kings 1-0. Delon Wright found the back of the net in the 36th minute. The event continues on Friday at the same venue.
