Teams book berth in youth league finals

Cains Advocates won their match in the most thrilling fashion possible to earn a place in the final of the Boys U14 Champions category of the Barclays ISF Youth Football League at the National Institute of Physical Education and Sports on Sunday.

The Advocates edged out Juice Master United 3-2 on penalties after the regulation time was a 1-1 deadlock. For the season’s top honours, The Advocates will take on Black Fins, who found a much easier route with a 4-1 win over Bong Paoun in the other semi-finals.

Scherini FC and Kew Park Rangers set up a final showdown in the Boys U14 Premier class after coming through their semi-finals in differing styles.

While Scherini downed The Blue Flag 6-4, the Rangers shook off Flying Tigers 9-3.

Mekong Reds and Robas Rangers were on the right side of two high scoring affairs in the Boys U10 section as both chose to punish two outfits from the Seasiders, who were gallant even in defeat.

The Reds managed to put out Seasiders 2’s 10-6 and the Rangers got the better of Seasiders 1’s 11-7.

Sunrise and ANDC Bulls will figure in the Girls U14 final. Sunrise were too good for Chak Kropop Po Mankol 3-0, but the Bulls were made to sweat it out by Taylormade before winning 7-5.
