St George South U-17 champs
ONLY PENALTY KICKS could separate St George South and St Lucy, and in the end St George South emerged winners in the inaugural National Sports Youth Development Programme Under-17 football final at Briar Hall on Thursday night.
After the scores were locked 1-1 in regulation and extra time, St George South lifted the title by winning a tense penalty shoot-out 5-4.
One of the coaches of the St George South team, Corey “Beenie Man” Barrow, said the boys deviated from the plan they set up, but he was certain they would take home the championship trophy.
“They didn’t follow the game plan at all. It had me and the other coach here real disturbed . . . ,” he told the SATURDAY SUN.
