FCDS, champions of the Joint Football League
The City of Knowledge Foundation (FCDS) football team won the 8th City of Knowledge Joint Football League by beating the Metropolitan School of Panama (MET) team, 2-0.
In an exciting match, the FCDS team managed to get ahead on the scoreboard with an early goal that gave them tranquility to face the rest of the game. But not everything was written since the great MET team, instead of collapsing, kept a high pressure and with great ball handling succeeded in disturbing the FCDS team in search of the equalizer. This, however, never happened, and just minutes from the end of the match a lethal counter attack by FCDS concluded in the second and final goal that brought the cup to the tournament’s host.
Fans of both teams enjoyed a great and highly disputed match, which was played in an excellent sporting and camaraderie atmosphere. After the game, in the facilities of the Kiwanis Sports Village, teams and fans enjoyed food, drink and music to celebrate another successful football league.
