MONTEGO BAY, St James - Moy Hall were crowned champions of the All Community Summer Football League following an enthralling 5-4 win over King Gate in the dreaded penalty shoot-out at the Bogue playfield last Sunday.

At the end of regular and extra- time both teams were locked in a 1-1 stalemate, forcing the game into a penalty shoot-out.

Moy Hall collected the winner's trophy and $50,000 cash prize during the presentation which followed the well attended finals.

King Gate were presented a trophy and cash, amounting to $20,000 as the first runners- up prize.

Meanwhile, Little Miami from Catherine Hall beat Unity Hall 1-0 to capture the third place in the curtain raiser.

Unity Hall's Goal poacher Owani Curniffe who scored a total of nine goals walked away with the top goal scorer prize.

King Gate have only themselves to blame for not finishing at the top of the competition. After going ahead early in the first half from a Shane Drummonds strike, the team squandered several easy goal scoring opportunities to increase their lead.

Moy Hall who soaked up the pressure gradually launched several counter attacks of their own which eventually reaped success in the dying moments of the second half when Garth Lawrence got the equaliser.

The competition kicked off on July 22 with a total of 16 teams, drawn from around St James.

The All Community Summer Football League is the brainchild of Paul Nelson, a Red Cap porter at the Sangster's International Airport, who has shouldered most of the sponsorship for the competition over the past 21 years.
