Pakau Njogu FC was over the weekend declared winner of the late Bai Mundaw Jobe of Kahel.

This followed their 5-4 penalty shootout win over Pakau Saloum FC in their final after a goalless score line in regulation time.

Pakau Saloum dominated the first half and were awarded a penalty but they failed to convert the spot kick.

As action resumed in the second period, Pakau Njogu were the better side but could not also break the deadlock.

Thus the game ended nil-nil, therefore proceedings went into to post match penalty shootouts which ended 5-4 in favor of Pakau Njagu.

As winners, Pakau Njagu received a trophy and a cash amount of D9, 000 while runners up Pakau Saloum pocketed home D6, 000.
