[] – The Yamaha Caribs are the Golden Brook/Windjammer Seven’s league champions after the final of the tournament culminated on Saturday, October 18 at the National Park Rugby Field.

Caribs played stiff defence on the University of Guyana (UG) Wolves which allowed them to win the game 19-14 in front of the small crowd that turned out to cheer for their respective teams.

Carl Lewis was tremendous throughout the game, displaying great speed in tracking down offensive players that had breakaways and shutting them down, his activity on the defensive end was in full effect with a number of pass deflections that broke up plays for UG.

Lewis, who happens to be a former national sprinter, broke a tackle and scored the game’s first try displaying his speed on offence while Theodore Henry scored the conversion.

Walter George and Akeem Fraser also scored tries for the Caribs as Henry converted once more to secure the lead for the Caribs.

UG’s game had too many mistakes as players were unable to find their rhythm especially with their passing, dropping a number of passes while over or under throwing a few.

Godfrey Broomes was the top scorer for the Wolves scoring a try and converting twice while the team scored off a penalty to add to the score in the loss.

Meanwhile, the Pepsi Hornets defeated the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) 17-7 to finish third in the tournament. Rockford Cummings, Leon Greaves and Jason DeFreitas scored tries while Ryan Gonsalves converted once in the win for the Hornets.

The teams received their medals and trophies immediately after the conclusion of the final and were greeted by the sponsors of the tournament.
