There was plenty of thrilling action in the Hackney Super5League earlier this month as the finals of four competitions took place.
The final of the Champions League saw Intermediate League winners Miss Kicks take on runners-up Colebrook.
After the match ended goalless, Colebrook triumphed in the penalty shootout to claim the trophy and gain an element of revenge after missing out on the league crown to Miss Kicks.
The Europa League final pitted Beginners League champions Whippets against underdogs Torriano Turtles.
Torriano looked on course to upset the odds when leading 3-1, only for Whippets to hit back and take the game to penalties.
In the shootout, Turtles held their nerve to beat Whippets and claim the crown in the Europa League.
The Intermediate Supe5League Cup was won by N16ers after they beat rivals Tottenham Hotsnatch over two legs.
The Beginners Super5League Cup was also decided over two legs, with newcomers MSA & Frenford beating Brockwell united 8-4 on aggregate.
There was certainly enough action across all games to keep those interested entertained and the victors will hope to carry their cup form into their upcoming league campaigns.
