The Viana Football Tournament came to a close September 19 with Surinam defeating a strong B.G. team 3 to 0 at Lago Heights Field. The teams were closely matched and the final contest was a real battle.

The tournament brought out the usual rabid set of football fans who follow their favorite team wherever it goes and cheer its athletes lustily. The presentation match, which is to be played this week, will be a real test of the winners' skill, for they will face a composite team made up of the best players on the Trinidad, Jong Holland, and B.G. teams, the other three in the competition.
