Bundas FC were Saturday crowned champions of the Serrekunda West Sports Organisation (SWESO) tournament after beating Pipe Line FC 4-2 on post-match penalty shootout at the Serrekunda West Mini-stadium.
The two sides played a goalless draw in the Super Cup final named after the Late Ndeneh Nyang former football official of SWESO.
Pipeline were the better side of the day but failed to capitalise on the numerous chances they had while Bundas FC could only create a few half chances.
The game ended 0-0 resulting in a post-match penalty kicks, which ended 4-2 in favour of Bundas FC.
Bundas FC went home with a trophy and a cash prize of D10,000 as winners, whilst runners-up Pipeline FC collected a consolation prize of D5,000.
Speaking to reporters shortly after the game, Ansumana Dampha, head coach of Bundas FC, said he was happy for winning the trophy with Bundas FC. “Football is all about organisation,” he said, adding: “The reason behind Bundas FC’s success is good organisation.”
Saul, as he is commonly called, noted: “The tactics we used led to Pipeline FC dominating the game but what is most important is the win.”
Pipeline FC denied them the trophy last season, which is what made the win more important.
“Our wish is to win both the nawetaan and knockout this year and we will show all the teams that we are ready for it,” Saul added.
