A GRIPPING final ending in a 4-2 penalty win for Copesville Unique over Hillview Old Boys FC summed up a perfect weekend for lovers of the game who came out each day to show their support for local talent at the Hillview grounds in Raisethorpe.

Beginning on Easter Friday, the Hillview Easter Tournament sponsored by Hugo’s Panel Beaters, included 13 teams altogether of which three competed in the over 35 division and 10 teams competed in the open division, which consisted of two groups of five teams each.

It was Copesville Unique who walked away with all the spoils, winning the annual curtain raiser called “The Grand Challenge” on Friday, and the Easter tournament final on Monday, winning a grand total of R7 000 altogether.

Tournament director Raj Parus said that this year’s Easter tournament was a huge success and he thanked everyone for their support.

“We are very thankful to everyone who came out and supported us even through the bad weather that we experienced. It did not deter the people’s love for the game,” said Parus.

Parus said that they are hoping to exceed expectations and have an even bigger tournament next year and that he is sure they are on course to achieve this given the success of this year’s event.

Dellarn Naidoo of Copesville Unique won player of the tournament, with another Copesville Unique player, Terone Pillay, winning goalkeeper of the tournament for his valiant efforts in keeping other teams’ scoring attempts at bay.
