A number of the young GCC Spartans, who won the Solo Beverage Girls’ U-20 Outdoor Development Hockey League, last September, should be in action today. SEVEN male teams and five female sides will battle from this morning in a one-day outdoor hockey competition at the Guyana National Stadium, Providence. Twenty-five games will be played simultaneously on two pitches in the Bounty and Antonio’s Grille-sponsored event.
GCC will field three teams: GBTI GCC Tigers, GBTI GCC Spice and GBTI GCC Spartans. The other female sides expected to compete are Saints and YMCA Old Fort.
In the male competition, GCC, Saints and YMCA will all have two teams, while the Hikers will field one. The men’s group is split into two groups. Group A includes: Bounty GCC The Sequel, Saints Splinters, YMCA Old Fort Warriors and Pepsi Hikers, while Group B will have Bounty GCC Pitbulls, Saints Savages and YMCA Old Fort Carriers.
The day’s action bullies off with the Old Fort Warriors tackling the Saints Splinters at 11:30hrs, before the females take to the field 25 minutes later with the GCC Spice tackling Saints on pitch one and Spartans meeting Old Fort on pitch two.
The teams (both males and females) will continue battling throughout the afternoon until they play the semi-finals from 15:40hrs.
The men’s final is scheduled for 16:30hrs, while the female final is scheduled for 16:55hrs.
