Pepsi Hornet’s pulled off a comfortable victory against Yamaha Caribs in the tournament decider of the William Blackman 15-a-side Rugby League to take the coveted crown on Saturday at the National Park Rugby Playfield.
Hornets won 38 – 22 with national player Kevin `Buck’ Mc Kenzie proving to be the star of the proceedings in the lone match of the day.
Hornets ended the tournament unbeaten winning all four of their matches while Caribs lost both matches to Hornets but defeated the Guyana Defence Force in both their encounters.
On Saturday, Hornets entered the game as the favourites against the youthful Yamaha Caribs side which included national coach Theodore Henry and national captain Claudius Butts.
Hornets though showed in no uncertain terms that they were the superior side stinging the Yamaha Caribs team with regular tries and conversions which proved very frustrating for the Caribs side.
Mc Kenzie led the way with three tries while Christopher Singh, Troy Bascomb and Elwin Chase supported with a try each while Ryan George made four conversions.
For Yamaha Caribs, Butts scored two tries and Henry and Walter George one each while Henry scored the lone conversion.
