Pro Shottas are the new champions of the Coca Cola Barbados Football Association’s Under-17 Youth tournament.
They took the title after defeating Gall Hill 1-0 in the final at the Wildey artificial surface yesterday.
The goal, a penalty, was scored in the 81st minute by Albert Collymore.
Pro Shottas coach Fabian Massiah said that he was delighted with the result and hoped the team continued its fine form.
“I am really happy that the guys won it because the team is still young and they have another year in this division,” he said.
Massiah added that he was satisfied with the team’s win as they prepare for a tour of Cleveland next month.
“We worked really hard towards it. We are now looking ahead to the tour,” he said.
Gall Hill coach Randolph Cox said that his players’ lack of communication contributed to their defeat.
“Basically the guys did not carry out instructions properly and it showed in the second half,” he said.
“They [Pro Shottas] wanted it more but what we need to do now is to revisit and see what we did wrong and let’s work towards next year.”
In the third-place play-off, Pinelands succumbed to a 7-0 demolition (half-time 4-0) at the hands of Soccer Academy.
A hat-trick from Ocean Sobers-Henry, who scored in the ninth, tenth and 50th minutes, was the highlight of the clash.
Sobers-Henry blamed complacency for Soccer Academy’s third place finish and added that he wanted to do better.
Carl Hinkson also scored a double and Damien Clarke and Kevin Scott contributed a goal each.
