WESTERN BUREAU:

Baca Star United prevailed in a 3-2 penalty shoot-out to win the Trelawny FA Knockout title over Harmony FC on Saturday at the Elliston Wakeland Centre.

The teams had to settle for the dreaded spot kicks to determine the outcome of a spirited final, which had plenty of twists along the way, but it was particularly a sweet win for Baca Star, which signalled their recent appetite for the big occasions with yet another victory.

Harmony grabbed the lead in the 35th minute through Kevin Woollery, the midfielder firing home to complete a sweeping move.

Baca Star responded in typical fashion in the second half. Hosawani Mendez's free kick was too good for the Harmony FC goalkeeper in the 51st minute of play.

With neither team able to break the 1-1 stalemate after regulation and extra time, they had to settle for the penalty route.

Captain Ziddane France, Nichoy Campbell and Shane Brown scored for Baca Star, while Shaquelle Reid and Fitzroy Shirley converted for Harmony, giving the Cassman Williams-coached Baca Star the title.
