GCAA were on Saturday crowned National Inter-Departmental Sports Association football tournament after beating daily observer 4-3 on post-match penalty shootout, after the regulation time ended stalemate in a final game played at Serekunda East mini stadium.

Sang Gomez opened the scores for GCAA in the 32nd minute of the game after capitalizing on Bubacarr Sonko’s low cross to fire home the opener that gave his side the lead.

Daily Observer responded back and levelled the scores through substitute Biram Gaye, after the interval, to cancel Sang Gomez’s 32nd-minute strike to make it 1-all.

Both teams finished the game with ten men, a situation that pushed the game into penalties, which ended 4-3 in favour of GCCA.

The winners, GCAA, received a giant trophy and cash prize of D10,000, whilst Daily Observer received D8,000 as runners-up.
