Air Force SC edged Renown by 1 goal to nil to clinch the Dialog Champions League 2013 title in the final played at the Vernon Fernando Stadium in Kalutara on Sunday (22).
After a goalless first half Kumara Lankeshwara scored in the 57th minute to give Air Force their first DCL title in history.
Renown, who clinched the title from Air Force in 2009, attacked severely in the second half but ran out of luck while the winners played a well balanced game to take home the trophy and a cash award of Rs. 750,000.
Match-winner Lankeshwara was named the most valuable player of the tournament while Army SC’s Mohamed Izzadeen, who scored the most number of goals in the competition, won the golden boot award.
