Gambia: Real Win Again

Defending league champions Real de Banjul's defence of the title they won last year received another boost at the weekend when they secured their second straight win as week two of the domestic Gambian premier league got underway.

In a second successive game played at the KG5 Mini-Stadium in Banjul where they defeated Banjul Hawks 1-0 in week one, Real beat giant killers Steve Biko with a similar scoreline.

Again Alagie Sarr's side had to rely on the prolific prowess of forward Baboucarr Trawally who scored his second strike of the season for all three points. The defeat means Biko stayed on three points following their last weekend's 1-0 defeat of Gamtel while Real have a maximum six points from two games. Trawally had a magnificent effort foiled by the Biko keeper in the first half when his individual effort saw him unleash a ferocious effort which was dealt with by the giant killer's net tender.

With the entertainment from the game pleasing to watch, both teams couldn't find the net in the first period but that was to change as Real worthily set themselves in front. A good exchange of passes between Baboucarr Savage and Baboucarr Trawally ensued at the edge of the opposition box as the former teed up the latter to strike home the winner inside the box.
