Peak Bottling cop Business House 5-A-Side KO final
LAST year's beaten finalist Peak Bottling defeated Scotiabank 'B' 3-0 in the final of the 2012 Business House Five-A-Side Football Knock Out competition at the NWC playing field, Mona recently.
Troyland Williams, who plays for Cavalier Soccer Club in the Red Stripe Premier League, scored a brace for his team. The game started at a brisk pace with both teams trying to gain the upper hand. Both goalkeepers — Dwayne Colley and Tavar McQueen — were kept busy for the first 15 minutes with some fine saves.
Peak Bottling took the lead in the 15th minute after defenders Ramome Reid and Marlon Henry gave Troylan Williams too much space and time and he shot past a hapless Mcqueen in goal. The winners went farther ahead in the 24th minute on a counter attack, which caught the Scotiabank team by surprise.
A shot to goal from Williams was parried by goal Mcqueen, but it resulted into an own goal as a retreating Akeeli Martin, in attempting to clear the ball, kicked it into his goal.
Scotiabank made some changes for the second half, and they came out more purposeful in trying to reduce the deficit. Resilient defending from Rohan McDonald, Duju Murphy, David Smith and Colley prevented them from scoring.
Peak Bottling went 3-0 in the 40th minute when Murphy found an unmarked Williams, and he shot past the 'keeper. Peak Bottling then got behind the ball and ensured that no more goals were scored, as they soaked up the pressure from Scotiabank for the remainder of the game.
They pocketed $40,000 for their victory, while Scotiabank Group receive $20,000.
