Cable Bahamas Stars and GB Shipyard Wanderers to meet in Whirlpool Cup Final

After two dramatic and eventful semi finals , CableBahamas Stars and GB Shipyard Wanderers emerged victorious to contest the first Whirlpool Cup Final on Wednesday February 14th.

The first game saw the Wanderers make some tactical changes before kick off to bolster their defence by moving Roger Johnson from midfield back to goalkeeper ( a position he starred in with the GBFL Men’s champions Brita Red Bulls). The change by coach Scott seemed to work as the Wanderers swept into a 3 goal lead with goals from Claudio Vietti, Ralston Francis and Riko Jean. All credit to the Dynamos however as they came back strongly with two goals to ensure a nervy last few minutes for the top seeded Wanderers before they booked their cup final berth.

CABLE BAHAMAS STARS 1 BORCO OILERS 1 aet ( Stars go through on penalties)

The second semi final saw the Cable Bahamas Stars scrape through against a gallant Borco Oilers. In a close contest with chances few and far between , The stars’ Denzil Deveaux opened the scoring with a sweetly struck half volley midway through the second half . This looked as though this would be enough to secure the win until a last gasp free kick from Tootx Sands looped over the outstretched arms of stand-in goalkeeper Andre Bethel who had a great game nonetheless . Extra time saw no more goals but , as the darkness descended , Wanderers held their nerve to convert all 3 of their penalty kicks to win the tie on penalties.
