In the final Thursday, BPA beat the Department of Physical and Natural Sciences 3-2 in post-match penalty shootouts after a 1-1 draw in regular time. Amadou Jallow pushed the game to a breathtaking start with an early goal for Natural Sciences faculty in the 4th minute but John Correa’s glancing header in the 24th minute levelled matters for the BPA. Both sides created multiple chances from then on but good goal keeping acts by Sarjo Dukureh and Malick Joof for their respective teams dragged the stalemate beyond regulation time. In the ensuing penalties, BPA’s shooters won the day 3-2.
