The 2017 SLFA/Blackheart Knockout Tournament finally got on the way on Saturday 16th September 2017. The event which is being held at the Phillip Marcellin Grounds in Vieux Fort kicked off after a brief showcase of eight teams matching at the grounds. After this, former three time champions opened up proceedings against former finalists Central Castries.
In this encounter, Central Castries lead 1-nil thanks to a beautiful goal from Shaquille Buju Degazon. before the end of the half, Dennery enjoyed most of the possession without having any quality in the final third. Though having a clear cut opportunity to seal the game in the 88th minute, Central Castries kept their shape to seal a technically sound one-nil victory over Dennery!
