Vidar FC on Saturday at the Bakau Mini stadium recorded a dramatic 10-9 penalty shoot out victory over Ron Mango to lift the Super Cup title.
The Bakau outfit whose outstanding performances saw them become the runners up in last year's league competition had a promising start to the game, but all their brilliant attacking options and some wonderful passes were not good enough to earn them any victory in regulation period.
Ron Mango on the other hand was many pundits' favourite to win the title, having won the accolade two years in succession. But two poor penalty kicks cost them the title, leading to their defeat to the disappointment of a number of spectators, including the team officials, despite the presence of experience players such as Musa Njie, Lamin Njie, Assan Jatta, among others.
The Bakau New Town outfit who became the winner of both the knock out and the league cup last season had a man (Omar Jammeh) sent off for a hefty tackle on Lamin Jammeh in Vida's defence.
Vidar walked away with a trophy and a cash prize of D5, 000 while Ron Mango the runners up collected D3, 000 as a consolation prize.
According to Masanneh Jammeh, the Secretary General of Bakau Zonal Sports Committee, the Super Cup final was sponsored by Seedy Kinteh, President of the Gambia Football Association, and he thanked him on behalf of his fellow committee members for his continuous support in the development and promotion of sports in Baku, and football in particular.
