NagaWorld went into the showpiece of the 5-a-side PP Premier League finals on Tuesday night on an unbeaten run after disposing of Wing in last week’s semifinal. Cellcard, who finished the league as runners-up, thrashed CTN/MyTV 9-1 in the other semi.
Both teams started the final brightly, with Cellcard dominating the early part of the game. NagaWorld appeared to be content to concede possession and wait to strike on the counter. It was Cellcard who broke the deadlock midway through the first half with a well-worked goal from Khin Makara.
The second half began with Naga pushing to get back on level terms. As they went for the equaliser, they left themselves open to counterattacks that Cellcard fully exploited, scoring their second goal through Kea Lyhang. Naga continued to try to get back into the game but didn’t create many clear goal scoring opportunities. In the end Cellcard were worthy winners.
The playoff for third place and the bronze medal between CTN/MyTV and Wing was a close game, despite the misleading 6-2 scoreline.
The Community Cup was won by Schindler after they defeated Vattanac 3-2 in a close, tense final.
