Guinness “Greatest of the Streets” Linden: Silver Bullets eliminate holders Swag Entertainment in quarterfinal battle

  • by

A new champion will be crowned in the Guinness “Greatest of the Streets” Linden edition, as Silver Bullets eliminated three-time winners Swag Entertainment 1-0 in the quarterfinal round on Wednesday evening at the Christianburg hardcourt.
Witnessed by a large crowd, a first-half goal from Colwyn Drakes in the eighth minute proved enough to dethrone the three-time defending champions. The Silver Bullets unit will now oppose the Spaniards in the semifinal round after the latter squeaked past YMCA 1-0. Shaka Lewis found the back of the net in the 17th minute.
The Turf President outfit dismantled the Pro Ballers 3-0. Kelroy Anthony recorded a “Guinness Goal” [a goal scored in the final three minutes of normal time which counts as two] in the 29th minute. Breaking the initial deadlock was Anthony Layne in the ninth minute.
