Wales double up

WEYMOUTH WALES completed the league and cup double in the most dramatic of fashions, after Akeem Maloney rose in the final seconds of extra-time to head his side to knock-out football glory with a 1-0 victory over Paradise in the Stag Beer Champions Cup final.

The game needed extra-time after neither side could break the deadlock during the allotted 90 minutes at the Wildey AstroTurf, after a combination of brilliant goalkeeping and some erratic finishing.

Wales were the quicker out of the blocks and dominated much of the first-half proceedings. The defending champions’ early dominance translated into arguably the best opportunity of the first half after another slick move proved too good for the Paradise defence.

A lovely ball over the top from Arantees Lawrence found Hadan Holligan in space down the right. Holligan then drove into the area and shifted back onto his right, before squaring a pinpoint pass back across the face of goal for Tristan ‘Fishy’ Parris. (ML)
