FOOTBALL: Last Saturday (July 27) saw the finals of the prestigious Maimorn Cup 2013, which hosted 32 of the best football teams in Phuket competing for a B50,000 prize.
Several foreigners featured in the top three teams this season, including top scorer of the tournament Ryan Adekoya from the UK with eight goals.
The prestigious final of the tournament was between renowned teams The Hulk and Tuk-Tuk FC. Incredible pace and skill set the game alight, with none of these teams used to losing.
It was Tuk-Tuk FC with Jacopo Jajo from Italy who eventually took the lead, but The Hulk were quick to come back with goals by Ryan Adekoya, making it 3-3 at the break. The second half was anxious, but Tuk-Tuk secured the honors with a single brilliant goal in a 4-3 win.
In the runners-up final, Andes Pira’s Phuket Condos & Homes easily overcame opponents Toobo’eh United to snatch third spot in a 6-2 win.
