Ahed bag Cup after dramatic penalty shootoutAhed doubled their trophy count for the season following a dramatic penalty shootout win over rivals Nejmeh in the Lebanese Cup final Sunday. The sides couldn't be separated following an absorbing 90 minutes, with extra time failing to buck the trend as both sets of players looked dead on their feet.The grueling contest clearly took its toll on the players and, when penalties rolled around, it was Nejmeh who faltered first.A central dart in the eighth minute had the Ahed back line on its heels, but Maatouk badly pulled his shot from a good position.Micevski's deflected effort, however, trickled agonizingly wide of the goal post.After latching onto another delightful ball from Haidar, Zreik cut inside before squaring for Chaito replacement Mohammad Kadouh.Haidar and Zreik combined for the umpteenth time to open extra time.A raking pass from Haidar had Zreik again bearing down on goal, but the bouncing ball forced the diminutive winger into a rushed header that Sabeh in the end gratefully clutched.
