The Cavalier football team just before taking the field for their Lynk Cup final at Sabina Park. The team had its dressing room burgled ahead of a 2-0 loss to Pormore United.

Tonight’s Lynk Cup final was a loss in more than one way for Cavalier, who were beaten 2-0 by Portmore United at Sabina Park, after their changing room was broken into and valuables stolen.
The Rudolph Speid-coached team returned to their dressing room at the half-time break to find the room ransacked and valuables missing, including phones, money, footwear and car keys.
Cavalier trailed 1-0 at half time, courtesy of a Chevaughn Walsh goal in the 35th minute.
Cavalier’s loss was sealed in the second half with Lamar Walker’s 63rd-minute strike.
Portmore took home a cash prize of $1.65 million, while Cavalier received $1,450,000.
