KUWAIT, Jan 28 (KUNA) -- Qadsia SC won His Highness the Crown Prince
Football Cup for the eighth time in the club history after beating rival
Al-Arabi SC 2-1 on Tuesday.
Qadsia's first goal was scored by Syrian international Omar Soma who nailed
a penalty in the 79th minute of the final which was patronized and attended by
His Highness the Crown Prince Sheikh Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah,
Parliament Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim and other officials.
Saif Al-Hashan added Qadsia's second goal. Al-Arabi's Syrian international
Mahmoud Mawwas scored his team's lone goal in the 93 minute.

against the referee's calls, foremost the penalty kick.

Cup with six titles. Kuwait SC won it five times, while each of Samliya and
Kazma won it once. (pickup previous)
