The wins kept both teams at the head of their group from two wins, when the Upper Demerara Football Association’s (UDFA) 4th annual GT Beer Cup Christmas football tournament continued its preliminary round at the Mackenzie Sports Club ground on Saturday night.Playing in the second game after match officials ruled the walkover when Hi Stars failed to show for their match against Winners Connection, Shattas, last year’s runners-up got their lead through Williams when a corner was awarded to them.Then Jashawn Freeman, their defender sent a high ball from the right and Williams rose to head home for a 1-0 advantage in the 41st minute.The Shattas then continued to look the better side as their defence stood up to maintain their advantage at the break.The heavy conditions continued to make play a bit tough but the Shattas were determined to come away with another victory and they doubled the score in the 75th minute after Dexter Garraway was able to send Drakes through for a neat shot, which gave them a 2-0 lead. When the final whistle came their second win was assured.The competition continues today with two matches.
