Stores successfully defends Banks DIH Limited five-a-side football title

Stores successfully defended their Banks DIH Limited Inter-Department 5-a-side football championship edging Berbice Branch 1-0 Friday at the Thirst Park ground.

Royston Dublin settled the contest in the 38th minute of extra time.

Lurking inside the right of the box, Dublin latched onto a loose ball, after an initial Phillip Rowley effort struck the post, before thumping his effort into the centre of the net.

With the win, Stores walked away with the championship trophy and medals while the Berbicians had to settle for the runners-up accolade and medals.

Prior to the finale, Berbice downed Central Service 1-0 in the lone semi-final fixture after Stores were awarded a berth to the finale.

On target for the Berbice unit were J. Joseph and S. Hinds in the 26th and 29th minute respectively.
