FALMOUTH, Trelawny - Prospect Links and Salt Marsh are the mid-season champions in the Trelawny Football Association's Monymusk Overproof White Rum competitions after wins in Sunday's incentive finals played at the Elliston Wakeland Centre in Falmouth.

Dobby Little's 80th minute goal was the decider in the Major League mid-season final as Zone 2 leaders Prospect Links prevail 1-0 over Zone 1 leaders Invaders in the second game of the double header.

Prospect Links who had topped Zone 2 with 17 points, pocketed $20,000 while Invaders who had scored 19 points to win Zone 1 will get $10,000.

In the first game, Salt Marsh scored two late goals to come from behind to beat Lorrimers All-Stars 2-1 in a dramatic finish in the Division One game.

Clinton Blake's 48th minute goal appeared to be all Lorrimers needed to win the final but Glenmore Plummer equalised for Salt Marsh in the 83rd, while Anthony Knuckle scored the winner two minutes later.

Salt Marsh, the highest scoring team in the Division One, collected $15,000 for their efforts, while Lorrimers will get $10,000.

Meanwhile the Major League will resume this weekend with the cross-zone round of matches that will decide the semi-finalists.
