Gambia: Impressive Ten-Goal Hit in League First Week

Unlike last season, the start of the 2013 new domestic championship witnessed goal galore in the first week and Gambia Ports Authority couldn't ask for a better start hitting Interior FC for four.

It was a bit of a feista for the Ferry Boys brushing off Interior in a gruesome fashion on Sunday putting four past them - the team with the highest goal count out of the twelve teams.

Real De Banjul opened their title defense campaign as Bubacarr Trawally's lone goal which proved decisive garnered the capital club the spoils in a heated capital derby against Banjul Hawks at the KG5 rejuvenated mini-stadium.

Coach Alagie Sarr had his new signing tested including January signee Brikama United's Modou Jallow who is on a one year loan deal with the all whites.

Real drafted in a lot of new signings to beef up its roster in anticipation of the Caf Champions League as they make a return to the continental showpiece after a twelve year absence.

Elsewhere, Academy Boys, Samger were held to a goalless stalemate affair with Sea View at the Serrekunda East mini-stadium on Sunday.

2011 league champions Brikama United failed to put visitors Young Africans to the sword at the Sateba Boys so-called slaughter house center. Young Africans forced the host to a one-all draw.

An overall ten goals were netted at the weekend
