Mico University College took their first lien on the Intercollegiate Greg Garel Trophy when they defeated former champions University of Technology (UTech) 6-5 on penalties at the UWI Bowl on Thursday afternoon.

Mico launched numerous attacks through Rosario Harriot, Ricardo Oldham, Mickheal Jones and Donovan Dormer, but UTech repelled the offensive through Milaw Morgan, Sadrque Barkley, Christopher Johnson and Andray Burke.

With no goals to show in the first 45 minutes, both teams launched numerous attacks in the second period, but still neither could find a way through.

With the game goal-less, extra-time was applied in an effort to break the deadlock, but again both goals remained untouched. The dreaded penalty shoot-out was employed as the final tie-breaker.

Winning coach Vassell Reynolds was pleased after the shootout that favoured his team. "I am pleased with our team's performance. This is the third time we are in a penalty shoot-out and we were confident as we were successful in the other occasions. The guys played well and it was a good game," he said.

The winning trophy was presented to the captain Rosario Harriot by football chair Dudley Powell.
