were treated to a game that was worthy of a final
which was full of goals, entertainment and watched
by a supportive crowd who thoroughly enjoyed it.
The best thing about the final was that as the
two teams took to the field it was a 50/50 guess
on who would come out on top.
Local de Palma had managed to grind out results
all day with a certain amount of flair and great
deal of determination. Quayaquil 100% had been
flamboyant and been knocking in goals for fun.
They were on a great run of 5 games without a
defeat – a 6 th would see them emerge as champions.

the floodgates seemed to open and Policia de Palma
scored at relative ease through Pedro Barcelo,
