The cops were helpless against a star-studded Kandy outfit with the likes of Danushka Ranjan (R), Danush Dayan and Gayan Weeraratne

The Cops who made it to a cup championship after a lapse of over two decades were impressive all throughout their campaign causing early upset in the quarterfinals defeating Havelock SC.
