Young Solifo FC were crowned champions of the annual Diamond Fitness Intermediate Football Tournament title following their 3-2 victory over Young Commit FC in the final, after goalless draw in the regulation time, at the Gunjur Upper Basic School playground on Wednesday.

The tightly contested game, characterised by delightful exhibition of skills and panache, attracted spectators from Gunjur and its surroundings and both teams had series of goal-scoring opportunities in front of each other`s goal mouth but failed to capitalize on those opportunities thus the game ended goalless.

The encounter went into a post-match penalty shootout which ended 3-2 in favour of Young Soilifo FC.

As champions of the tournament, Young Solifo FC were crowned with a giant trophy and a cash prize of D1,500, whilst Young Commit FC received D1,200 as runners-up.

The kick-off was taken by the former chairman of Brikama Area Council, D. R. Amat Gibriel Jassey.
