Day Two | The Road to the States
Another exciting day of football was upon as at the Road to the States football tournament in Gouna, with all the players having their mind set on one goal, early qualification.
After the tournament’s impressive opening day results, another good show of football was set to be served as some teams’ hopes of qualification were all but sealed while others were extinguished.
Hayah 3:0 MAC
Mac were dealt a heavy loss against powerhouse Hayah. The latter’s second match of the tournament and their second win after goals from Youssef Akram, Yassin Akram and Leithy, who all scored for Hayah against GPS, clinched the maximum points for the away side.
Manor House 0:1 Alsson
After beating Narmer the day before, Manor house failed to get any point of Alsson, who drew their last match against TBS. Ramzy the scorer for Alsson leaving them with four points, to Manor’s three.
MLS 2:1 GPS
MLS continued to surprise the audience after winning their second match in a row. Morshedy and Ismael Hosny scored the goals for MLS while unsurprisingly, Al-Hussein Amr scored his 4th goal in GPS but it was not enough as GPS are virtually out of the tournament after getting one point from three matches.
Narmer 3:1 TBS
After a disappointing first day for Maadi Narmer where they lost their first two matches of the tournament, they managed to turn the table around in good fashion the next day. Seif Sameh scored once while Mahmoud ‘Hoss’ Hosam struck twice for the hosts with Yousef Ashraf scoring a consolation goal for his side. TBS remain with one point from two matches.
Green Heights 0:5 MAC
Green Heights were dealt the heaviest defeat in the tournament so far as they got completely steamrolled by MAC. Youssef and Ziad scored once but the hero of the day was Omar Tomoum who got his hat-trick after scoring once in their opening day loss against MLS.
DEO 3:1 Alsson
It looks like there is no stopping DEO at this rate as they outplayed Alsson. Zamalek youngster Hamouda scored his first goal of the tournament, as well as Saleh and Ziad. Ramzy managed to pull one back for his side but it was not enough.
MLS 1:4 Hayah
Hayah managed bombard MLS’ net by scoring four times. Again, Leithy scored for Hayah but we got our second hat-trick of the tournament from Yassin Akram, who brings his goals tally to five in three matches. ENPPI youngster Rikka managed to score for MLS. Hayah have scored a staggering 11 goals in three matches and without a doubt, are heading to the final.
DEO 2:0 Manor House
DEO managed to collect their 7th point from three matches, as an easy double from MOTM Soraya ‘Scarello’ were enough to seal the win against Manor House.
Alsson 3:0 GPS
Alsson have now won, drew and lost in this tournament. It was clearly their day after their clean win against GPS. Man-of-the-Match Zeinab Safty scored twice, while Hanna Fahmy scored the other.
TBS 1:0 DEO
DEO continue to collect mixed results as a single goal from TBS’ MOTM Sarah Essam was enough to sink the German school.
Hayah 1:0 GPS
GPS were all but eliminated after their loss against Hayah. Farida Soliman scored the only goal of the match, which all but sends Hayah to the final after collecting the full points from three matches. Surprisingly, it was GPS keeper Jana Moussa who was voted MOTM after her superb showing.
Manor House 0:0 TBS
A dull final result to end the day as Manor House drew their second game in a row while TBS collected their first point in the tournament. Dina Harbey was voted MOTM.
