Gambia: Brufut Stun Sukuta in Zonals

Newcomers Brufut continue to prove that despite being debutants in the Zonals, they can do it like any other team. Coming off from solid performances against Bakau and Brikama, the Sanimentary boys Wednesday beat high flying Sukuta 3-1 in a game played at the Father Gough Sports Complex in Manjai Kunda.

Goals from Omar Jarju and Pamodou Jatta in the 26th, 36th, and 47th minutes of the first half of the game were enough for the coastal village team to grab three valuable points in their quest to secure a place beyond the group stages. Sukuta got a consolation goal in the 62nd minute courtesy of Abdoulie Cham.

In a post-match interview, Malick Gassama, the head coach of Brufut, said he was very happy with the victory. "We just implemented what we trained and that is it and we will continue to give good and respectable performance as we progress," he said, while commending his boys for the good performance and the fans for turning out in numbers to cheer the team.

A visibly disappointed Sukuta Coach Seedou Barrow said his team will go back to the drawing board and prepare for their next game against Gunjur. "I am still optimistic that we can make it to the next stage of the competition," he added.
