After playing second fiddle to LFA for the past three years, Lahi have now taken the mantle of Momase champions.
Having battled their way through to the top, it was nemesis LFA whom they would meet in the grand final of the BESTA Cup.
Two goals in the second half have seen Lahi defeat the Lae Football Association by three goals to nil, in the grand final of the women’s division of the BESTA Cup.
The day before, LFA had to overcome Madang in a tense semi final, played twice, and the fatigue set in for the hosts later on.
Defender Carolyn Obi along with international team mate, Kesai Steven held firm and composed, restricting LFA striker Meagen Gunemba, as Lahi went all out to prove, their championship status.
Defender Joelyn Aiei who had had a thigh strain the day before, was able to overcome discomfort and play a pivotal role for her team Fidelma Watpore, who had starred in goal for LFA was unable to contain Lahis attack.
Both teams have qualified for the national tournament which will be held in September.
