Gambia: Medina Beat S.V Laar to Qualify for the Final

Medina F.C's 16 seconds goal gave them victory against S.V Laar at Serekunda East Football field. Medina's early goal of the game was the only goal of the game and that resulted to their winning against, S.V Laar who already booked their place in the finals in the knock-out cup against Macassa F.C.

Medina's early goal also put extra pressure on the S.V Laar team who eventually played well in both the first and second halves of the game to find an equaliser to no avail.

S.V Laar came close to goal on several occasions during the march but were frustrated for their lack of hitting the net.

In the 51 minutes of the game, just 11 minutes in the half, Ebou Sanyang could've leveled Nfama Camara's goal for Medina, but the ball went wide.

Also in the 60 minute of the march, Lamin Jobateh for SV Laar also got a set piece but his shot turned fruitless. Jobateh again in the 67 minutes with another clear chance to level the score sheet frustrated his fans as it was his best moment to hit Medina's post at the tempo of game.

At this juncture, one of Medina's man from the technical side was driven outside the field, and captain Yankuba was also handed a red card just few minutes away from time.

Speaking to Essa Tamba S.V Laar Manager, blames the referee for not handling the game fairly and expressed believe that the referee was favouring the Medina side.

Tamba said Medina's goal is a goal and he blames lack of concentration from his side as the cause.

Ansumana Jallow, coach of SV Laar expressed happiness to win this game and said he is glad that his team will be playing in the finals.
