This match, which is the curtain- raiser for the Pro League season, pits the League champs (Central FC) against the victorious team of the FA Trophy competition (Defence Force).

Defence Force did well to rally from 2-0 down to end regulation time locked at 2-2 with Central but, in the penalty shootout, Williams, a halftime substitute, came up trumps with three consecutive saves to decide the outcome.

After Devorn Jorsling and Leston Paul scored for Defence Force and Central respectively, Williams went to his right to deny Hashim Arcia’s try, low to his left to hold a tame effort from Jerwyn Balthazar and then stuck out his right hand to parry Marvin Jones’ kick.

But Nicholas Dillon calmly scored his effort to guarantee the $10,000 jackpot for Central – the money will go towards a charity chosen by the winners.

Earlier, a rampant Central went 2-0 up within the first five minutes of the contest.

The deadlock was broken in the second minute with midfielder Darren Mitchell hitting home a rebound after Marchan blocked a shot from Kenwyne Jones and, three minutes later, the national captain slotted home from close range after a feed from Joseph.

Central FC, after making their three substitutions, were forced to play the dying moments with 10 men as new signing Robert Primus (from Morvant Caledonia United) had to be taken to the locker room with a right knee injury.
