Soccer royalty was crowned at the 2015 Supersonic Street Ball Kings tournament on Saturday.

Living up to the hype, 24 teams battled for supremacy in the four divisions, getting the ball rolling from a shade after 9am on the day.

Spectators and players created a real buzz as the games got under way.

After the court titans were said and done, Real Alenco under-17s edged out Cool Customs in a penalty shootout, to claim top honours in the juniors category.

Imphuphu Wholesalers beat NFL6 to claim third spot.

In the ‘cultural division’, NFL6 redeemed itself with a four-nil win over Real Alenco to take third position, with Cutting Edge Ministries defeating Hope Church for numero uno.

The over-40s division came to a thrilling end.

Newcastle United displayed a very mature brand of football, netting two goals against a spirited Legends FC, to assail the top spot.

In the open division, NFL6 put on its best performance.

Taking the overall Street Ball Kings title for 2015, the side scored four penalties in a shootout to hold Zenith FC at bay.

Earlier, it was uncertain NFL6 would even pass the group stages.

Scraping through by goal difference alone, the team got it together as the tournament progressed, while Real Santos claimed third position over NCC Stars.

Event organiser, Terence Chetty described the tournament as well-supported.

“We would like to thank all the teams and supporters who visited and enjoyed the day with us. We also thank our sponsors and Matthew Shunmugam for their role. A special thanks goes to Spencely Perumal, the tournament director.”
