The 2018 Magnum/Kingston and St Andrew Football Association (KSAFA) Super League and Major League football season closes on Friday with the playing of the league finals at Constant Spring Football Complex.

Meadforest FC and Constant Spring FC will contest the Magnum/KSAFA Major League Final following contrasting wins in their semi-final matches played at the Constant Spring Football Complex on Sunday. Meanwhile, Barbican FC and Brown's Town FC will contest the Super League Final in the feature game.

Former Premier League campaigners Barbican FC clinched their spot in the Super League final by defeating Rockfort FC 2-0 in the semis with goals coming from Deshawn Morrison in minute 78 and Shaquille Lewis in the 90th+3 minute.

In the other semi-final Brown's Town FC defeated Molynes United FC 4-2 on penalties after Molynes United had recovered from two goals down to draw 2-2 in regulation time with goals from Patrick Schecklude in the 28th and Kemar Seivwright in the 45th minute to cancel earlier goals from Tevin Scott in the fourth minute and Bryan English in the 22nd minute for Brown's Town FC. Extra time also failed to break the deadlock with penalty kicks eventually deciding the winners.

The winners of the Super League will go on to contest the Premier League play-off, while Major League finalists Constant Spring and Meadforest will next season campaign in the Magnum/KSAFA Super League.

In their Major League semi-final clash on Sunday, Constant Spring advanced to the final ahead of Seaview Gardens FC 4-2 on penalties in the opening game of the evening's double-header. The teams had played to a 1-1 scoreline in regulation time and with extra time failing to break the deadlock penalty kicks were introduced.

During the penalty-taking exercise, Seaview missed their first two kicks, while Constant Spring missed their second. In regulation time it was Seaview Gardens who opened the scoring through Zenard Street in minute 23. However, 10 minutes later, Constant Spring drew level through Tafarie Robel.

The second game saw Meadforest advancing ahead of Greenwich Town FC 1-0. This was a game that was much of the same as that of the Constant Spring versus Seaview. Here again the eventual losers created the major scoring opportunities but failed to make capital of their good fortune. Twice in both halves Greenwich Town missed chances that could have been considered sitters from on the goal line at each end.
