… NIS and Lotto Company no-show
BANK of Guyana (BOG) mauled the Ministry of Tourism 5-1, when action in the Kalden Organisation-organised Inter-Ministry/Corporation seven-a-side football competition continued at the Banks DIH Thirst Park ground, last Saturday night. National Insurance Scheme (NIS) and Guyana Lottery Company were a no-show for their fixture, while MACORP, Neal and Massy and Ministry of Foreign Affairs all gave walkovers to Media United, J&S Electrical, Guyana Pharmaceutical Corporation and Republic Bank respectively.
Travis Griffith scored in the 5th minute for Ministry of Tourism before Steve McLean grabbed the equaliser three minutes later for BOG, whose Orlando Fredericks sent them ahead with his 11th minute strike and Marvin Yaw gave them a two-goal cushion just before the lemon-time whistle.
Goals from Quason Fanfair (27th) and Shem Porter (29th) enabled BOG to complete the win over their hapless opponents.
Guyana National Shipping Corporation (GNSC) were also in winners’ row when they defeated Ministry of Public Works 4-1, with the first and last goals of the game coming off the boot of Jamal Cozier in the 8th and 29th minute.
Stellon David also got a brace in the 16th and 20th minutes for the victors. Jermaine Weekes scored the lone goal for Public Works.
Telecommunication giant Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company (GT&T) went under to John Fernandes Limited 2-1, with David Britton and Paul Daniels finding the back of the net for the winners in the 7th and 20th minutes, while Dellon Williams pulled one back for GT&T, two minutes after Britton’s strike.
In the final game of the evening Banks DIH handed Guyana National Industrial Corporation (GNIC) their first loss, as the host club came away with a 4-1 victory.
Ike Garraway scored a double for Banks in the 3rd and 22nd minutes, Seon McKenzie in the 6th and Quacy Alleyne in the 29th while Travis Griffith scored GNIC’s lone goal in the 25th minute.
The action continues tonight at the same venue with four more matches beginning at 18:00hrs, at which time Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport will take on BOG while Ministry of Tourism will be hoping MACORP turn up for their 18:45 encounter.
The other two matches pit Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) against GT&T at 19:30hrs before John Fernandes Limited and Ministry of Foreign Affairs close off the night’s action with their matchup. At stake for the winner of the tournament, is $250 000.
