Sparta Boss was placed on the brink of elimination in the Guinness Cage Street-ball Championship, after losing 1-3 to Alexander Village on Wednesday at the Haslington Market Tarmac.

 It was an inspired performance from veteran marksman Shem Porter in front of a mammoth crowd, as he recorded a hat-trick to dismantle the Spartans’ rearguard.

 Porter found the back of the net in the eighth, 12th and 14th minute, as Alexander Village sent a stern warning to the remaining teams. For the loser, Sheldon Shepherd scored in the fourth minute.

 Sparta Boss must now win their final group fixture to remain in contention for an elimination berth. Meanwhile, defending champion Ol Skool Ballers edged host Haslington Hypers 4-3 on penalty kicks, after regulation time ended 2-2.

Beres Parkinson bagged a double for Ol Skool Ballers in the fourth and eighth minute, while Nicosie McLeod tallied a brace in the third and 12th minute.

 Similarly, Uprising edged Buxton Diamond 2-1 on penalty kicks, following a 1-1 scoreline at the end of regulation time. Shamar Scott netted for the eventual victor in the fifth minute, while Shamar Beckles initially handed Buxton the lead in the fourth minute.

 The tournament continues tomorrow with the final round of group matches.
