Guyana’s senior men’s national team and the U-17 and U-19 outfits used home turf to their full advantage and upstaged the visiting French Guiana teams when the Goodwill tournament was staged Saturday at the Police Sports Club Ground, Eve Leary. 

In less than ideal playing conditions, the flagship senior team defeated their French speaking counterparts 14-nil apiece in the first two games, then 26-12 in the final encounter of the three-game format. Winger, Patrick King was instrumental in all those victories.

The U-17 team drew first blood in a tight contest which ended 14-12 in their favour. The visitors then turned the tables with a 36-7 thrashing in the second encounter owing to poor defence. The Guyanese teens bounced back in the decisive third match to pull out a 24-14 win much to the delight of the crowd…..
