New Town won the ultimate cash prize of GHS10,000 and the giant trophy

Accra New Town won the GHS10,000 at stake at the African Games Zongo Football Competition after walloping Madina 4-0 in the final on Sunday.

Bernard Cofie, 30, also from Accra New Town emerged the top-scorer after netting 4 goals in 3 games.

The winners also took home a giant trophy sponsored by P5 Ventures.

Skipper Cofie struck thrice with Mubarak Yahaya adding the other goal.

Eight (8) Muslim communities featuring Maamobi, Sukura, Madina, New Town, Cow Lane, Fadama, Nima, and Tudu competed for the ultimate.

The rationale behind the African Games Zongo Football Competition was to sensitise everybody, particularly the Muslim community about the 13th African Games.

Nima earned GHS8,000 for finishing in second place while third-placed Maamobi pocketed GHS6,000.
