Football - Real Maldives crowned Championship One champions

Real Maldives captain Terry Crea receives the Championship One league title from SFF president Elvis Chetty

Real Maldives were crowned Championship One League winners after a 1-1 draw with their nearest rivals St John Bosco at Stad Linite last night in a title decider.

Real Maldives needed a point from this match to secure the league crown against their closest challengers who could have won the title if they could collect a win in this final league match.

Pointe Larue-based St John Bosco took the lead in the 16th minute from a sumptuous free kick by Yves Zialor for a 1-0 advantage for the players of coach Vivian Bothe.

But the players of coach Don Anacoura secured the crucial point deep in injury time through a strike by their star player Josip Ravinia who made 1-1 in the 94th minute and the score stood until the final whistle.

Sports NATION would like to congratulate Real Maldives and we will have a more detailed report on the match in our Saturday issue.
