NPA Anchors have won the Liberia Football Association Knockout Competition.

The Anchors did so in grand style with a 3-2 win over Mighty Barrolle in post match penalty kicks.

NPA won the competition on Friday after their sides failed to score in the remaining fifteen minutes of the knockout final continuation.

The teams played to a 2-2 draw on two occasions.
Last Sunday, the game between Barrolle and NPA Anchors could not end due to poor visibility at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.

However, the 15 minutes did not provide the expected excitement as Barolle who were playing 10 against 11 decided to slow down the game.

The Liberia Football Association will soon announced the date for the Super Cup game.

Meanwhile, the President of the Barrolle Sports Association has expressed regrets that his team was forced to play for fifteen minutes on last Friday.

Mr.Gramondeh Karnga claimed the LFA acted against the will of Barrolle.

Mr.Karnga said he expected the football house to give consideration since it was a knockout final.

The Barrolle president also claimed the action was intended to deny Barrolle of the triple championship.

Football regulations state that any game that is discontinued because of natural or non-natural causes should be continued from the point it stopped
