Kings, Harbour View win Golden League crowns
Kings and Harbour View were crowned champions of the 2015/2016 Bull Investment/Cable Pro Data Services-sponsored Golden League football competition on Sunday at the NWC Playing field.
Harbour View defeated Park Rovers 4-2 on penalties after they played to a 0-0 full and extra time draw.
Kings won their first league title after being the competition for just two years, when they clipped former champions Santos 1-0 in the league final 1-0.
Previously undefeated Santos were playing in their third straight league final. They had lost to Park Rover in 2014 and 2015 1-0.
Santos entered the game with an unbeaten 15 game streak and were expected to defeat Kings whom they clipped 1-0 in their first match up.
This was not to be as the Kings team lead by former national player Nicholas Zaidie, Dane Paralto and John Hunter dominated the middle of the pack.
Santos defenders Trevor Campbell, Joseph Henry, Lance Livingston, Bryan Leon and Jeffery Dillon had a hard time containing them.
Kings got the winner in the 57th minute when Nicholas Zaidie was left unmarked on the right flank and received a pass from Robert Murray which he controlled and shot powerfully past an advancing Wayne Shaw.
Zaidie was named the most valuable player of the competition, while Neville Wright of Dunns All Stars was the leading goal scorer of the season with 11 goals.
Neville Lounds of Harbour View was the knockout MVP and his teammate Ian McNaughton, the leading goal scorer with three goals.
