Brotherhood FC champs in Marriaqua football
Brotherhood FC’s players and supporters kicked dust in jubilation at the Cane End Playing Field, after being crowned the Hairoun/ FLOW Marriaqua football league winners.
A 7-6 trumping over Pride and Joy, in kicks from the penalty spot, handed Brotherhood the title.
Both teams had played it out without scoring in regulation time and extra time.
Brotherhood pocketed $2,500 and lifted the large winner’s trophy as well, while Pride and Joy had to settle for $1,500 and the runner-up trophy.
Brotherhood’s last route to Sunday’s final, was a 2-1 win over Cane End Gunners, while Pride and Joy had a 2-0 triumph over Groove Street Ballers, as the last four battled it out in the semi-finals.
Groove Street Ballers won by default on Sunday, as Cane End Gunners did not show for the third place.
Groove Street Ballers, therefore got the third place trophy and $1,000.
The awards and presentation ceremony, which followed Sunday’s final, saw Pride and Joy’s Anthony Hazell, again taking the best goalkeeper award. Hazell was also declared the MVP of the tournament.
Junior Baptiste of Pride and Joy was selected as the best defender, with Alistair Williams, also of Pride and Joy, the best midfielder.
Cane End Gunners’ Omar Thomas won the most goals awards for his 19 goals.
