Godwin Primary School add Monteagle Shield to league title.
Godwin Primary School added to their silverware with victory in the Monteagle Shield for the third time in succession.
Having already secured the league title over a fortnight ago, the Finnymore Road-based school capped off another successful campaign with a 2-1 extra-time win over Richard Alibon.
Both finalists secured comfortable victories over Henry Green in the group stages with Godwin’s Chianna Belsham notching up her 99th and 100th goals for the team in her final outing before moving to senior school.
Godwin then brushed aside Borough five-a-side champions Hunters Hall with goals from skipper Lois Ford and Adesuwa Edomwande for a 2-0 triumph.
Richard Alibon drew their encounter with Hunters Hall, before narrowly losing out to Godwin 2-1 after goals from Belsham and Ford, despite taking the lead through Beau Parker.
The final group game witnessed another stalemate between Hunters Hall and Henry Green, and set up an Alibon-Godwin final.
Godwin dominated from the off with little for goalkeeper Charlie Russell to do, and they eventually took the lead through Ford once again.
But Parker clawed Alibon back level with just three minutes remaining to send the game into extra time.
And it proved to be a fitting finale for Belsham as she struck the winner from a free-kick after being hauled down five yards outside the box as Godwin finished the year with a memorable win.
