Four teams still in the running for Turbo football honours

first_imgTHE battle is on for the Turbo Knockout Football title. Four teams are still in the running to lift the trophy and grand prize.Today’s semi-finals will see two teams move forward to the final hurdle with a chance to pocket half-a-million dollars. The losers have to settle for half of that.In the first of the two matches at the Ministry of Education ground, Carifesta Avenue, the Georgetown-based Camptown, who have largely surprised the rest of the field, will stand before Pouderoyen while the boys in blue battle Grove.The city side Camptown will meet West Demerara’s Pouderoyen after which the colossal clash between Police and Grove Hi Tech will take place.Advancing through the detriment of Linden’s Silver Shattas, the Camptown side will have plenty to prove against an effervescent and improving Pouderoyen unit..The West Dem side has shown over previous tournaments that they possess something special and whether this is their tournament remains to be seen.What is known is that only one team can emerge from that fixture as champions and the prediction is a 2-1 scoreline in favour of Camptown.The second match of the night is anyone’s game, since both Police and Grove have produced hands-down some of the best football games of the tournament.If there were to be odds, however, they would have to go to Police, considering that they had won their last tournament in convincing manner.Still, upsets are nothing strange in football and one could very well be on the cards knowing the nature of the tournament.The first semi-final is expected to kick off at 18:30hrs with the second commencing at 21:00 hrs.The runners-up will receive $250 000. The third-place team will receive $125 000 and fourth-place finishers will have to settle for $75 000.last_img read more
