It was the Curtez Kellman show in the fixture which was a rematch of the previous Futsal final. The Georgetown Football Club midfielder made his presence felt, banging in a hat-trick.
Kellman rifled a right shot into the right side in the 15th minute to break the deadlock, before lashing another powerful effort into the back of the net in the 28th minute to make it 2-0.
Gold is Money eventually pulled one back in the 35th minute through the evergreen Michael Pedro.
However, Kellman restored his side’s advantage two minutes later, thumping a right foot strike into the roof of the goal from the right side of the field.
The final nail in the coffin was applied in the 45th minute, as Akeemo Anthony etched his name on the scorer’s sheet.
With the win, Future Stars copped the championship trophy and $700,000. On the other hand, Gold is Money collected the runners-up package of $250,000 and a trophy.
