Manus reclaim Besta FA Cup

Manus has retained the Besta FA Cup to be the 2015 champions.

They defeated Madang 1-0 in the grand final today at the Lae Football Association Park thanks to a goal from Richard Lote.

It was a replay of last year’s grand final where both teams played for the Cup with Manus finishing on top.

Manus wasted no time scoring 35 minutes into the first half 1-0 through Lote who found the net five metres outside the goal keeper’s box. 

It was a tough encounter as Manus maintained defence preventing Madang from scoring in the second half despite several attempts.

A huge crowd turned up to see their favourite team in action and went wild at full time as Manus took out the win. 

In the womens final, Port Moresby Soccer Association beat Lahi 1 - 0 to be crowned champion.

Home team Lae took out fourth place after losing to newcomers Koupa 6-4 in the play off.

The winners took home K20 000 prize money, second placed teams took away K15 000, third place received K10 000 and fourth place got K5 000.
