G-Camp new champions
G-CAMP futsal team is the new champions of the Wantok Futsal Cup.
The Glen Buka coached side snatched the title on Saturday defeating Ngu Brothers 4-3 in a spectacular grand final at the Multipurpose Hall.
Ngu Brothers were forced to play in their own half by the G-Camp side lead by the experienced George Stevenson.
They grabbed the first goal of the match but saw Albert Wetney leveling the scores 1-1 for Ngu Brothers four minutes into the game.
G-Camp retook the lead just before the break through Atana Faarodo Jnr firing outside the box to lead 2-1.
Lenson Bisili tied the scores 2-2 when second half resumed and gave Ngu Brothers a 3-2 lead second six minutes into the game.
Ngu Brothers fortune however did not last long as G-Camp found the back of the Anthony Talo guarded goal a minute later to level 3-3.
Fortune swung G-Camp’s way in the final minute of play after a quick counter resulted in an Atkin Kaua own goal that caught Talo by surprise, flying in for their fourth goal.
Ngu Brothers came close to grabbing their equalizer in the final seconds of play but saw Wetney, Bisili and Atkin Kaua’s shot on goal all denied by the wood work and see G-Camp win the 2017 Honiara Wantok Futsal Cup challenge.
“First of all thank you to the talented Ngu Brothers team for giving us a good game.
This is a huge competition for my players and is a big win for us,” G-Camp head coach Glen Buka told Sun SPORTS after their win.
“Our objective since day one was to win this competition and I’d like to thank my players for their hard work and commitment.
“Thank to our loyal fans that are known to be loud, for coming out and supporting the boys in the final. Without all of them there would be nothing to celebrate today,” Mr Buka said.
Meanwhile, Port Villas has been named as the host city for next year’s Wantok Futsal Cup challenge and Buka says G-Camp is definitely heading to Villa to defend their title.
“Definitely we will attend next year’s wantok Cup in Port Villa. We look forward to defending our title next year,” he said.
