The competition, which had 20 teams participating in its first year, was keenly contested, and individuals will be selected to enter an international tournament alongside teams from the Cayman Islands, United States of America, and the United Kingdom, organiser and INSPORTS Portland parish officer Sharon Harris disclosed.

The winning team earned a trophy and $20,000, while Fire Service received $15,000, with third place going to JCF Police, who received $10,000. Captain of the winning team, Tyrone Vernon. said, “It is a wonderful feeling and I am very proud that our team came out on top as we all played an essential part in our team winning.

We will continue playing and do whatever we can to improve the sport in our parish.” Losing captain, District Officer Lloyd Johnson, was proud of his team’s involvement.

“We had a bad start tonight and just did not get back into the game. I commend GeeJam for winning this competition. We will be back next year and expect to do very well as we came here to win, but were derailed.” Benny White, mayor of Port Antonio, said: “This is good, as we have a blend of persons taking part.

I am proud, as it helps to promote the parish and its sporting activities while keeping persons active mentally and physically. I look forward to us hosting the international teams coming and playing here.”
