Ann’s Grove and Milerock battled to a 1-1 result when the Guyana Football Federation [GFF] Elite League continued Tuesday at the No. #5 ground, West Coast Berbice.
Maxton Adams handed the East Coast giant the lead in the 25th minute. Racing to the right side of the penalty box, Adams directed his first time effort into the back of the net after latching onto a perfectly-placed, left-side cross.
Veteran forward Rawle Gittens ensured the Lindeners left the Ancient County with a share of the spoils levelling proceedings compliments of a 79th minute conversion.
It was a moment of individual brilliance from the wily elder football statesman, who rolled back the years with a finish that was good enough to be a winner for a match of any level.
Receiving the ball at the top of the 18 yard box, Gittens weaved past the onrushing Selwyn Isaacs, before curling his right foot effort past the goalkeeper and into the net.
Milerock now has 15 points and remain in seventh place while Ann’s Grove sits a position below with 11 points.
Meanwhile, Cougars FC and New Amsterdam [NA] United played to a scoreless draw. The highlight of the cagey clash which lacked clear cut opportunities, was the 34th minute red card of NA United’s Leonardo Adams.
With the result, NA United remain in ninth place with as many points while it was the first draw for cellar occupant Cougars, who now have seven points.
