SINGAPORE - In a rematch of last year's Schools National B division girls' football final, Bowen Secondary School triumphed over defending champions Queensway Secondary after a 2-0 win on Monday over at the Serangoon Stadium.
Last year, Queensway clinched the title after a 3-1 penalty shoot-out victory when the final finished 0-0.
The first half saw Bowen go on the attack at Serangoon Stadium, coming close on a few occasions. Their best chance came early on when Bowen's Lynn Rashiqah could not connect with a low cross to tap in from close-range.
Bowen kicked off the second half and continued piling on the pressure. The tournament's top scorer, Ong Yan Ting, came off the bench and notched her 22nd goal in the 57th minute to put her side in front after receiving a pass from captain Riddle Reneelyn Sison.
Two minutes later, Riddle got on the scoresheet after the Queensway defence suffered a lapse in concentration. Once the final whistle blew, Bowen supporters roared as the school won their third national B division girls' championship in four years.
In the third and fourth place play-off which took place earlier, Hong Kah Secondary School claimed a comfortable 3-0 victory over Woodlands Secondary School.
