BA won the annual Vinod Patel in-house soccer tournament on Monday.

Ba beat Central Warehouse of Suva 4-2 in penalty shootout after both sides were locked nil-all at fulltime and extra time.

Ifraaz Ali Jan, Munendra Gangaiya, Moneil Kumar and Mohammed Shameem scored spot kicks to help their side win the VINCO Sports tournament at the Nadi Sangam College.

Team secretary Vijay Vikash said the tournament was tough but his side worked hard to win.

"The tournament is organised to allow us to socialise with staff from other branches and bring unity to the staff of the Vinod Patel group," he said.

"And this is the first time in 31 years that we have won the tournament."

A total of 16 teams participated in the tournament and Vikash said the tournament helped his teammates bond as workers of the same branch.

"This Sunday, we are going to have a celebration at Volivoli beach to thank the players and their families for the win."
