– round robin segment commenced last evening

Spectators and supporters of the various community teams got their monies worth on the second night of action in the inaugural Xtreme Clean & Maintenance Co. / GT Beer ‘Gold Rush’ Futsal Tournament which continued on Saturday night, at the National Gymnasium.

Once again a large turnout witnessed some pulsating encounters as teams’ battle for places in the round robin stage which begun last evening.
From the start of the night’s action, Broad Street Bullies had to pull out all the stops to ward off a determined challenge from Buxton Diamond, making their debut in Georgetown.
In the end, the experienced Broad Street Bullies escaped with a narrow 2-1 win thanks to goals from Darren Benjamin in the third minute and Daniel Favourite’s winner, one minute from full time.
Delon Wright had given Buxton hope when he equalised in the 14th minute of play.
However, the game of the night was the clash between another debutant, Plaisance and Alexander Village which required sudden death penalty shootout to determine the winner after regulation and extra times failed to unlock a 4-4 stalemate.
Another game that produced fireworks was the Tucville versus Melanie ‘B’ affair which the former prevailed 5-4 despite a heroic performance from William Europe, who slammed in four goals.
Other teams booking their spots in the next phase following wins were Bent Street, Back Circle and Future Stars.
Future Stars, an off-shoot of Broad Street Bullies looked in delightful form during their 5-1 demolition of the up and coming North East La Penitence and have now positioned themselves as one of the favourites to go all the way.
Bent Street and Back Circle oozed confidence and eased to comfortable victories, making it difficult for pundits to pick a winner.
The winning team will take away $500,000 and the winning trophy, while second, third and fourth placed teams take home $200,000, $100,000 and $50,000 respectively.
Meanwhile, ladies have the opportunity to shoot for a pennyweight of gold or its equivalent every night.
