the football title.

Andrew Omara gave PATS the lead in the 7th
minute.

Ismat Anthony brought the game level towards the
end of the opening 45 minutes.

Then two late second half strikes from Solomon
Odongo and Alex Sida capped the icing on the cake.

PATS were reduced to 10 men after a red card given
to Odongo for time wasting (two bookable offences).

I am really impressed about the Commissioner General’s cup. The excitement generated, spirit upon which they have been organized is amazing. These games have brought out the cohesiveness of the different people. Next year, we shall expand to all corners of the country. We want this tournament to be the flagship event in sports within the prisons department. It should in fact be the tapping ground for Maroons Football Club. This tournament will also raise the bar for sports in Prisons.
