GREMIO produced the most dramatic of collapses on Saturday but still managed to cling on to beat Dream Team 5-4 on penalties after remarkably letting a 4-0 lead in regulation time slip in the quarter-finals of the Caribbean Welders Fishing Pond Football League.
THE Big 8 of the Caribbean Welders Fishing Pond Football League will be decided this weekend with the final round of the matches in the group phase kicking off. Group A is going down to the wire with three of the four Big 8 qualifying spots already taken. Former winners Dream Team are clinging to the fourth and final spot with 11 points from six matches. Defending champions Take That and Cool It are staring elimination in fifth place, with nine points from six games after a sluggish start to the season. 'Cool It' need to defeat group leaders Pinto United at 2pm tomorrow and hope Dream Team drop points at 4pm against an Alexcon FC team with nothing to play for. 'Cool It' have typically been slow starters in the league and built momentum towards the Big 8 which they have won for two years in a row. This year, however, they've left it late and out of their hands and will need luck to go their way on Sunday.
