Gambia: Sukuta Teach SK Central Footballing Lesson in Zonals

The Serekunda Central Zonal team was taught some lessens in football on Wednesday when Sukuta put them to the sword with a thumping 3-0 defeat at the Serekunda West Mini-Stadium.

The win, the biggest by any team in the competition in recent memory, ensured that Sukuta recovered from their first ever defeat to West Coast Region rivals Brikama in match day to remain second in the group after the Sateba Boys were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw by Gunjur in another West Coast derby at the Box Bar Mini-Stadium on Wednesday.

Sukuta came into the game with the intention of securing all three points to put their campaign back on track following last week's defeat against a Serekunda Central side that were making their debut in this year's competition. Lamin Jobe opened the scorings after only 14 minutes from the penalty spot when Amdou Soley was brought down in the area.

Despite Serekunda's dominance in the second period, it was Sukuta who had the better of the chances and were always threatening on the break. Sukuta had to wait until the hour mark to take total control over the scoreline when Seedy Saidy scored with a tap-in having been teed up in the area.

Former Wallidan player Lamarana Jallow then made it three when he converted an 87th minute penalty after Habib Cham was also wrestled to the ground by a Serekunda Central defender.
