Wednesday March 12th sees the culmination of a long and successful season of competitive games as AC Millies take on Cable Bahamas Stars in The Whirlpool Cup final at Freeport Rugby & Football Club.

AC Millies surprisingly struggled last week against playoff winners Borco and were somewhat flattered by the 3 nil score line. In an open, end to end game Borco had a number of chances to create a shock but were foiled by some resolute defending by Melyvonn Leon and goalkeeper Roger Johnson. Andre Turnquest, in particular for Borco, suffered at the hands of Johnson who pulled off some good saves from the young Borco player. AC Millies eventually took the lead after good play from Michael Lockhart who set the ‘ball on a plate’ for Richardson to drive the ball home. Good play from the same player doubled the score line before Sam Taylor netted a third as Borco looked desperately to get back in the game.

In the second semi final, Cable Bahamas squeezed though on penalties after a thrilling 3:3 tie after regular time. Denzil Deveaux looked to have steered his team into a commanding lead however a spirited GB Shipyard rallied to actually take the lead 3: 2 with only five minutes remaining. Cable Bahamas however were not to be outdone and equalized to take the game into penalty kicks. After a nervy series of penalties in which both goalkeepers (Ralstan Francis and Kevin Winter) pulled off some splendid saves, Coral Bahamas eventually won through to their third successive final. They will, however, be hoping to perform better than the previous two finals as they have lost on both occasions they went to ‘The Big Dance’!
