It was another exciting evening of junior hockey at the National Gymnasium in action of the Guyana Hockey Board (GHB) Junior National Indoor Hockey Championships.
Capturing the headlines once again was Bingo Spartans, who romped up two more wins in the girls under – 16 and 21 categories to maintain their unbeaten run.
Spartans, in the girls under – 16 category, completed a 1-0 win over Joseph Stars.
The lone goal came off the stick of young sensation, Sarah Klautky, who netted two minutes before the clock stopped, in the 18th minute to ensure Spartans continue their impressive streak.
Saints, on the other hand, defeated GCC Her-ricanes 2-0 in the other girls under – 16 match of the evening. Mariah Seegobind and Captain Charlia Webb were the goal scorers for the winners.
Meanwhile GCC Pitbulls, for the second night running, was involved in another exciting drawn match, levelling 2-2 with Toco in their boys under – 16 encounter.
Toco led for the entire first period 2-0 after goals from Tyrese Lewis and nippy Joshua Ramsay, who snuck pass Pitbulls’ defence on a couple of fast breaks to leave the more seasoned campaigners trailing.
The experience of Samuel Woodroffe and Rahim Oliver, nonetheless, came to the fore as they converted two penalty corners late into the second half to tie the game at 2-2 to save the favourites from enduing an embarrassing defeat.
The final boys under – 16 match of the evening saw Hikers and Saints drawing 0-0 in their encounter.
Spartans in their lone under – 21 match of the evening, sniffed past 2-1 to keep their record intact. Klautky starred with both strikes which came in the fifth and 19th minute, respectively to eclipse Seegobind’s 13th-minute penalty conversion.
In the other girl’s 21 contest, Old Fort gold chasers hammered Her-ricanes 4-0. Akeaba Singh converted a double while Captain Minsodia Culpepper and Bushani Kaladen had the other two goals.
Hikers and Saints played to a nil-nil draw in their boys under – 21 match-up.
