This goal gave life and motivation to the team. Full time score was 2:2 so we went in for extra time. The rules stated that extra time is going to be played against the golden goal rule. This meant that, whoever scored first would emerge as the winner. So the first half of the extra time still ended 2:2. In second half, Olimi Nyarwa scored an outstanding free kick outside the 18 yard box making the score board 3:2 in favor of EYP. This goal gave Edgars Youth Programme the victory it deserved. The hard work, team work and determination brought joy which filled the hearts of the fans as well as providing victory to the EYP U14 team hence emerging Champions of the Rising Stars U14 category. Congratulations boys!!
