DFA PRO Gerald George hands trophy to Bath Estate captain Kurlson Benjamin

Scotia Bank Bath Estate on the weekend has emerged as the champions in the 2012/2013 Premier Division of the Dominica Football Association (DFA).

Last week the team needed just a draw to be crowned champs in their game against well-placed them Portsmouth but failed to win that game after a last, second half goal from Eskim Williams of Portsmouth piloted his team to a 1-0 win over Bath Estate.

On Sunday at Geneva in Grand Bay, Bath Estate, with a superior goal difference against closest rival Dublanc, needed a win or a draw to be crowned champions and got that goal in the 15th minute through striker Kurlson Benjamin.

Benjamin had not played last week’s game against Portsmouth and on Sunday showed his prowess as he latched on a defensive error to give his team that lead in the first half.

Portsmouth got lots of chances, many of them hitting the wood work but at the end of the final whistle, it was the Bath Estate who prevailed to win 1-0 and the title.

In other games KFC Harlem lost to Same Martin Pointe Michel 1-0.

It now means that Kensbro and Wacky Rollers are the bottom placed teams fighting to avoid relegation.
