-Trafalgar demolish Lichfield in tense final
– Hopetown cop third place
AFTER dispatching last year’s winners of the Berbice Zone Guinness ‘Greatest of the Streets’, New Amsterdam Kings in the quarter-final, Trafalgar ran riot in the final on Sunday night, hitting four goals past Lichfield to claim the 2018 title.
Ryan Schultz was the man on target for Trafalgar, netting goals in the third and sixth minutes before adding the icing on the cake with a Guinness Goal in the 38th minute to completely demolish Lichfield who offered no resistance.
Meanwhile, Hopetown needled Outsiders in the third place play-off with Marvin Robertson netting the lone goal for the victors.
Earlier in the semi-finals, Trafalgar needed a win via sudden death penalty kicks to get past Hopetown after regulation time failed to produce a winner.
Lichfield’s route to the final was easier, beating Outsiders 2-0, compliments of a brace from Carlos Grant in the 22nd and 26th minutes.
The latest title holders not only carted off the top prize of $400,000, but also secured a spot in the national playoffs.
Meanwhile, the Guinness ‘Greatest of the Streets’ Bartica leg is slated for July 14, 15 and 16.
