After weeks of negative news, the St. Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) now has some positive news to celebrate.
SLFS edged the Goddard Group 56-54 on Saturday to capture the 2014 KFC/Inter-Commercial Basketball League title.
Jerry Charles scored the winning basket.
This is the second year that this tournament has been hosted and SLFS has been finalists on both occasions, narrowly losing to the Royal St. Lucia Police Force last year.
The firemen boasted on their Facebook page that they won without any outside player.
“Whereas every team was given the privilege to have one foreign player (someone who is not a member of their organisation), the SLFS team was a full contingent of firefighters only, no foreign player was included in the team. Whether by choice or circumstances, these guys proved that they possess what it takes to be Champions without the assistance of a foreigner.”
