    Although play was evenly contested for the most part in the first half, Carib Cement got the winner from ace striker Fabian Nethersole, who scored from a corner kick in the 23rd minute.

    Meanwhile, defending champions Carib Cement, Scotiabank, NWC and The Gleaner have qualified for the semi-finals of the KSAFA/Western Sports league.
