The A-AA Championship was a rematch between MBA and Sheffield from a couple weeks ago when MBA handed Sheffield their only loss this season. The Sheffield Knights didn’t waste any time getting on the scoreboard first. Halfway through the first, Sheffield scored again sending the ball sailing over the goalkeeper’s hands into the top right corner. Minutes later MBA got a chance to get on the board with a PK but just missed as it hit off the top post. The Knights had no shortage of scorers in this game, their forward was all alone in the backfield scoring the third goal of the night. Later in the first half MBA made an impressive strike on goal from several yards out to get their first and only score of the game. Sheffield scored two more goals in the second half to earn another championship for Coach Jonathan Cole. The MVP of the game was keeper Ibrahima Toure.
In the AAA Championship Overton and Central from District 16 met up once again. Overton won the first meeting during the season but Central came out attacking early in this game. The Warriors had a great look on goal with a header and a shot from 15 yards out but missed both attempts. Overton had a couple good scoring opportunities as well but both keepers defended well ending the half scoreless for both teams. At the start of the second, Central wasted no time finally getting a shot passed Overton. Later in the game the Warriors followed up with an excellent shot right over the keeper’s head. Overton’s efforts to score were useless against Central’s defenders until Central missed a PK and with just minutes left Overton was able to set up a nice pass and score their only goal of the night. As the whistle blew Central celebrated their 2-1 win for Coach Cory Salter. The MVP of the game was Fidel Nibaruta.
Congratulations to both teams on an excellent season!!
