Western Region based fans of Italian football giants; Juventus, have won the maiden Club Championship organised by Western Region’s leader in entertainment and sports radio; Westgold Radio, by beating fans of Real Madrid in the finals of the competition.
The fans of Juventus, before reaching the finals on Saturday, were given their toughest test in the competition in their semi-final match against fans of Barcelona. The match ended in a goalless draw, and therefore had to be settled through penalty kicks. Prior to the semi-final match, however, the Juventus team had to put a spirited ‘fight’ to come from behind to beat fans of Arsenal by two (2) goals to one (1).
The Arsenal team was too fantastic to watch, though it was made of up players who are playing in Ghana’s Division One and Two, as compared to that of Juventus who play in top flight football in Ghana and abroad. Many pundits at the Gyandu Park, where the games were held, believed that Arsenal was going to carry the day because of the composure of the team in surging forward, coupled with a superb defending ability.
The whole competition begun with a game between staff of Skyy Power FM and Westgold Radio, in which team Skyy amazingly dismantled the ‘wack’ Westgold Radio side. Team should have scored Westgold by five (5) goals by the end of the game, but the attack of Skyy Power FM was a bit sluggish on the day, and thus forced the game to a goalless draw. The game was therefore settled through the penalty spot, and Skyy eventually won by four (4) goals to three (3). The spotlight of that game was when the Co-Host of the Jolly Breakfast Show (JBS) on Skyy Power FM, who happened to be in poles for team Skyy, Victor Baffour Awuah Socrates, beautifully saved a penalty to hand team Skyy the bragging right, at least until they play each other again.
The maiden edition of the Westgold Club Championship was supported by Karma Industries, Okutey Local Food Joint, and Sahara Herbal.
