Gambia: Senegal's Casa Sport Humbles Brikama Zonal

Casamance-based Casa Sport brushed off Brikama Zonal side for second time in an internationally friendly.

Champions of Senegalese premier league, the Ziguinchor outfit showed clinching of the league title was no fluke subjecting the Brikama zonal team to yet another awkward submission, this time in a brutal fashion.

Before a soldout crowd and unsurprisingly packed stadium -down to the locals unwavering community support, pundits had expected a bittersweet revenge for the home side having lost 1-0 in the two side's meeting, but instead the visiting Senegalese team deservingly won the bragging right.

Casa Sport had it's all packed in a package and the deadlock broken not until in the second half following a blank first-half.

While either affects a host of changes, Brikama had paid in their own coin for retiring Lamin Gibba amid fans' disapproval and the midfielder's replacement was wholly short of the vigor and his rather frequent poor marking was a presented chance Casa Sport pounced on.

A loose ball from the middle of the park had Casa Sport stylish Mohamed Ndiaye cut in down the flanks and swiftly beat past his marker before sliding past a helpless Brikama goalkeeper, Lamin Kanteh to nestle the ball to the back of the net in the 71st minute.

Five minutes on, the host's glimmer of hope eventually got shattered and substitute Lamine Fanne sharply powered home for a decisive 2-0 score after Brikama's goalie adjudged it for a foul on him.
