Port Kaituma of Region One and Parima of Region Seven captured the male and female football titles respectively when the Indigenous Heritage Games concluded on Sunday night at Everest Cricket Club.
Watched by a large and colourful crowd, Port Kaituma beat Waramadong 2-1, while Parima defeated Lethem 3-0 on penalties.
Port Kaituma dominated the early proceedings and Cornell St. Romain put them ahead in the first half when he slotted home from inside the area. The region one side continued to attack following the interval and Floyd Thomas stretched the lead before Lynden Joseph pulled one back for Waramadong.
Waramadong tried desperately in search of an equaliser, but Port Kaituma defence stood firm to give their fans much to cheer about.
The female final did produce some exciting moments, but both teams failed to find the back of the net in the 70 minutes regulation time. Even the 15 minutes of extra time failed to separate the teams which sent the game into penalties. Olivia O’ Selmo, Betsy Gonsalves and Jean Edmund converted for defending champions Parima.
