Camptown stun Police 1-0 to claim Turbo football title

first_imgIT was a night of upsets and one that will be talked about for months to come as Camptown FC stunned tournament favourites Police for the Turbo KO football title.Against the grain and underdogs on the night, the Camptown side showed what grit and determination can do for a team when they needled Police 1-0.The final started as expected with the Police unleashing their arsenal on the Camptown defence but the Camptown side were ready for it.Former national keeper Richie Richardson was on point to deny the lawmen when they looked most dangerous and while one did slip through, it was later disallowed after play was stopped for an earlier foul.Still, Camptown did well to absorb what the Police threw at them and delivered the rabbit punch through player-coach Troy Prescott.Prescott’s set piece proved troublesome for the Police with the end result being a goal for the underdogs when the Police least expected it.The Police, unable to answer with a goal of their own despite several tries, had finally fallen in the tournament they were favoured to win and Camptown had toppled the tournament giants.Captain Lazhan Lord contended that hard work and training was keys in his side’s success on the night which will now see them $500 000 richer.Meanwhile, in the third place playoff, Pouderoyen took home top honours over Grove Hi-Tech as well as the $100 000 up for grabs.last_img read more
