McAuley of Spanish Town, St Catherine, are champions of the INSPORTS National Primary School football competition after defeating Mandeville 2-1 in the final at Jamalco Sports Club on Wednesday.

Goals from Tevin Grey in the 29th-minute and Mark Drummond's 48th-minute strike ensured that the championship trophy will go to Windsor Road in the old capital following an exciting exhibition of youth football.

Gengkhis Lowe's brilliant freekick in the 41st-minute levelled the scores and gave Mandeville much hope, but they were denied in the end while suffering their first defeat of the season.

Meanwhile, August Town defeated Alley of Clarendon in a five-goal thriller for third place, with Javian Dubidad scoring the winner a minute from full time.

Dubidad (eighth) and Jonathan Boyden (19th) scored in the first half to put the St Andrew side comfortably ahead at the break. However, Alley, through top striker Deshawn Panton (44th and 46th), scored twice in as many minutes to set up an enthralling finish.

Panton finished the national round with 13 goals to take the leading goalscorer award during the presentation ceremony. McAuley swept the main awards, including being named most disciplined team, while Grey copped the most valuable player, Jahray Marshall was named best goalkeeper, and Shane Richards named best coach.
