Supersport are PSL champions

2008-05-18 00:00

IN one of the closest and most dramatic finales of a South African season, SuperSport United yesterday won their first Premier Soccer League title despite losing their final game 2-1 to Bloemfontein Celtic at Seisa Ramabodu Stadium.

This meant that, provided the SuperSport score remained 2-1, Ajax needed to score once more to be level with the Pretoria team on 54 points, and win the league on goal difference. Having fought back from 2-0 down to 2-1, SuperSport also had to score once more to draw against Celtic and finish champions on 55 points.
