Swag En­ter­tain­ment crowned PNCR 60th an­niver­sary Fut­sal champs

Stabroek News - - SPORT -

Linden’s Swag En­ter­tain­ment was crowned the Peo­ple’s Na­tional Congress Re­form (PNCR) 60th An­niver­sary Fut­sal Cham­pi­ons af­ter edg­ing Bent Street 2-1 Sun­day at the Macken­zie Sports Club (MSC) ground, Linden.

Fol­low­ing a score­less open­ing half which was wit­nessed by a large crowd, Swag En­ter­tain­ment broke the dead­lock in the 12th minute, as Shane Luckie scored.

The lanky Luckie un­corked a pow­er­ful left-foot vol­ley from just out­side the cen­tre of the penalty area which set­tled into the top right side of the net.

Luckie made his pres­ence felt once more in the 16th minute dou­bling his team’s lead with an equally ef­fi­cient strike.

Rac­ing down the left side, Luckie crashed a flat left foot strike into the cen­tre of the net.

How­ever, Bent Street pulled one back in the 18th minute to set-up a tense fin­ish with John Wal­dron find­ing the back of the net with a stab from the right side into the roof of the goal.

It was a goal that stunned the par­ti­san crowd at the venue as Wal­dron evaded the chal­lenge of a de­fender be­fore ri­fling his ef­fort past the cus­to­dian.

Nev­er­the­less, staunch de­fend­ing from the Swag En­ter­tain­ment play­ers en­sured that Bent Street was un­able to cre­ate the equaliser.
