Guyana Defence Force storms to another Elite League title

Guyana Police Force had to settle for second

The score at the end of the half remained stuck at 3-1, but this would change early in the second segment.

Stephen McDonald completed his brace in the 58th, which was the last goal of the 4-1 encounter between the disciplined forces’ teams.

“In retrospect, I must say that the work on the field reflects what happens behind the scenes. I thought that the players were committed, I thought that the support was there and that’s what showed out in all 9 games in the league,” GDF Head Coach Joseph Wilson said about the team’s victory.

Wilson added, “The players were determined, the players gave up their stint in the national team training programme to be part of this success, because the players see it as an important part of their future going forward.”

The victory brought the GDF outfit 25 points.

Meanwhile, Den Amstel came from behind to upend former champions Fruta Conquerors FC in the penultimate game of the league.

At the end of the first half, Fruta led 2-0 with goals compliments of Dennis Edwards and Samuel Garnett in the 12th and 41st, respectively.

However, Den Amstel’s Stephon Jupiter and Cleavon Murray cut out the deficit with goals in the 55th and 56th, while Malcolm Dainty handed the west Coast outfit the lead in the 64th.

Andre Hector made it a 4-2 game in Den Amstel’s favour in the 72, via penalty.

Although Deandre Linton struck or Fruta in the 83rd, it was not enough to bar Den Amstel from the 4-3 win.
