Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS -

ST CATHER­INE: McKOY LANDS crowned them­selves king in the IN­SPORTS/Babsy Grange Com­mu­nity Foot­ball com­pe­ti­tion, reg­is­ter­ing a 1-0 vic­tory over Genosyde in the fi­nal. The win­ning goal was scored by Christo­pher Foster in the sev­enth minute of a highly en­ter­tain­ing and com­pet­i­tive fi­nal on Sun­day.

Genosyde made sev­eral well-in­ten­tioned at­tempts at se­cur­ing an equaliser but were un­able to breach the de­fen­sive tac­tics of McKoy Lands.

For their well-de­served win, McKoy Lands were awarded a $100,000 cash prize, while Genosyde re­ceived $50,000.

In the third-place play-off, Rebel United ham­mered Brunswick United in an em­bar­rass­ing 8-1 thrash­ing.

Rebel United took the lead in the fifth minute through Mar­lon Robin­son.

How­ever, Devon Francis was the star player for Rebel United as he net­ted a hat-trick (13th, 16th, 31st). Fa­ther and son duo Wil­son Her­rera Jr (19th) and Wil­son Her­rera Sr (20th) also got in on the act with a goal apiece.

In an em­bar­rass­ing turn of events, Brunswick United scored an own goal, in­creas­ing Rebel United’s sub­stan­tial lead.

Brunswick United’s Robert Ju­nior scored his team’s only goal of the match, in the 32nd minute.

The sec­ond half pro­ceeded with no ad­di­tional goals, and Rebel United were the clear third-place win­ners.

For that out­stand­ing ef­fort, Rebel United pock­eted $25,000, while Brunswick United re­ceived a $10,000 cash prize. The lead­ing goalscor­erwas Dawayne Mac­Don­ald of Genosyde, who re­ceived a $10,000 prize, while Viper FC were awarded $15,000 for be­ing the most dis­ci­plined team.


“This was a great con­clu­sion to the IN­SPORTS/Babsy Grange Com­mu­nity Foot­ball com­pe­ti­tion and we would like to con­grat­u­late McKoy Lands for tak­ing the ti­tle,” de­clared Ian An­drews, IN­SPORTS’ ad­min­is­tra­tive direc­tor.

“All teams played very well, and we are pleased with the level of com­mu­nity sup­port. We are now look­ing for­ward to see­ing more teams in ac­tion for the up­com­ing IN­SPORTS All-island Foot­ball Cham­pi­onship, which is pop­u­larly re­ferred to as the ‘Ghetto World Cup’, where I am con­fi­dent we will see many more tal­ented ath­letes,” he added.
