A fine match took place, but it was the Black Pearls who eventually triumphed 41-25.

The Cup final was between 10 times in a row winners Red Devils and Red Stripes, making their first final for a long time.

The first quarter was tight and it remained a reasonably close game at half time.

However, Red Devils stepped up their game in the second half and showed just why they were champions for the past 10 consecutive years, as despite Red Stripes never giving up, ran out 71-25 winners.
