May 25, 2006

ALGIERS, May 26 (Reuters) - JS Kabylie have won the Algerian league title by a single point after an emphatic 5-0 win over already-relegated US Biskra.

Two goals from Hamid Berguiga on Thursday allowed JSK to finish one point ahead of last season's champions USM Alger, who won their final league match of the season 5-2 at home to Mouloudia Oudja.

It marks a record 13th league title for JSK, coached this season by Frenchman Jean-Yves Chay.

The club are also through to the last eight of the African Champions League, which continues after the World Cup finals.
