Tournament Fixture

KAW Soccer 2016

In one of the most exciting Final matches that KAW has seen in recent times, Chempada FC became the 2016 KAW Men's soccer champion by beating Black Hawks (4 - 3) in extra time.

During regular time, the teams were tied at 3 - 3. During the first half, both teams played with a cautious approach. Chempada led the first half with a goal headed in by Joshy off of a corner kick.

The second half saw Black Hawks storming into the Chempada half again and again resulting in two quick goals. Renjith Mukundan scored the equalizer with a long range kick and Najeev (Golden Boot winner) increased his tally of goals in the tournament to five, by tapping in a rebound from the post making it 2-1 for Black Hawks.

Chempada FC fought back to equalize through a brilliant ground goal scored by Joshy. Black Hawk's pressure on Chempada FC's goal mouth yielded results yet again, with a self goal by one of the Chempada defenders from a corner kick, making it 3-2.

A renewed Chempada team equalized yet again, with a goal scored by George Cherian to make it 3-3 for the regular time.

In extra time, both teams created opportunities, but failed to score in the first half. Chempada FC missed some sitters to take the lead. As the matched looked certain to go to the penalty shoot out, with one minute remaining in the match, Nikky Stephen scored a stunner from just inside the penalty box that ricocheted off the top left post and into the goal sending the tired Chempada players and fans into a frenzy.

Chempada held on to that lead to become the champions of KAW 2016 Men's Soccer Tournament.

The tournament also saw brilliant performances from the upcoming players Hemanth and Vishnu along with the seasoned players.
