The Starting Gate Harps finally annexed their first Bronx Irish Soccer League title when they clinched the Cup final with a 3-0 victory over the Southbend at the weekend.
A moment of handball madness in the Southbend penalty area gave Ann Carr the opportunity to convert the resulting penalty, leaving the Harps a goal up at the break. With the Southbend minus a number of notable starters, their main scoring threat, Petrona Kemp, was well shackled by the Harps backline, and the Queens women always looked like winning.
A great steal from Carr gave the Harps their second goal. That was followed by her third to wrap up a thoroughly deserving win that left a delighted Harps to crack open the champagne.
