Fruta Conquerors brush aside Bakewell Topp XX 3-0

first_img… GFF/STAG Elite League underwayIT WAS a nightmare welcome to Guyana’s top flight football for newcomers Victoria Kings and Bakewell Topp XX when the GFF/STAG Elite League season two got underway last Sunday at the DCC ground in Queenstown.After Kings were outclassed by the GDF 1-7 in the opener, Topp XX were brushed aside by Conquerors 3-0, to end a goal-feast opening night of the ‘Beautiful Game’ that produced 11 goals and heavy defeats for the debutants.A double within a two-minute spell by midfielder Jermaine Junor in the 38th and 40th minutes laid the foundation for the youthful Tucville-based side to easily overcome their Linden counterparts. After the break, Kwame La Fleur made it three-nil when he converted in the 70th minute.Although they lost the game, the 3-0 score-line does not reflect the competitiveness of Topp XX as was promised by coach Collie Hercules.The comprehensive victories by the top two contenders of the six-team race for the coveted title were the ideal starts they expected. While it is just the opening game day, both sides have positively responded to their labelling as the main challengers for the top prize worth $6M.The 6-team STAG Elite League will switch to Tucville this Friday where there will be another double-header beginning at 18:00hrs. The first game will feature Buxton United and Monedderlust FC, followed by home team Conquerors versus Victoria Kings. (Ras Wadada)last_img
