Scotiabank lift Buttekist five-a-side trophy
Scotiabank had to work hard to defeat defending champions Carib Cement and win their fourth Kingston & St Andrew Business House one-day five-a-side football rally last Saturday.
The competition which was previously played for the Pronto Porridge Mix trophy was renamed the Butterkist trophy by sponsor Seprod Limited. They defeated Carib Cement 3-1 in penalty shoot-out in the final, after both teams played to a 0-0 full and extra-time draw at the National Water Commission (NWC) playing field, Mona.

Carib Cement defeated the star studded Petrojam team 1-0 in their semi-final while Scotiabank and NWC played to a 0-0 full and extra-time draw. Scotiabank won 1-0 in penalty shoot-out. NWC could not put a penalty past goalkeeper Obrian Duncan. Kevin Lamey was on target for Scotiabank.
After an exciting full and extra-time draw and the final was decided in the dreaded penalty shoot-out. Goalkeeper Obrian Duncan saved Alanzo Adlam's penalty kick and Jabeur Johnson scored the only goal for Carib Cement in the shoot-out. Akeeli Martin, Rohan Reid and Lamey all scored their penalties to give Scotiabank a first hold on the Butterkist trophy.
New Scotiabank coach, Marcel 'Fuzzy' Gayle, was elated with his team's performance especially his goalkeeper who did not concede during regular play.
