Gambia: GFA League Week Two Wraps

Steve Biko endured their first defeat of the season after losing to title holders Real De Banjul on a slender 1-0 margin at the Independence stadium.

Gaffer Alagie Sarr made four changes to the side that won against Hawks with Midfielder Bubacarr Trawally increasing his goal tally to two in two matches notching in a decisive 72nd minute goal.

Real's two match unbeaten run halts Steve Biko's blistering start to the season after the Bakau outfit got off to a fine start with a 1-0 win over Gamtel in week one. With back-to back victories, Real De Banjul are on course to defend the league title they scooped last season.

Elsewhere Steve Biko neighbours Bakau United suffered a similar whipping losing 1-0 to capital club Young Africans. Young Africans came from their one-all draw to Brikama United to clutch all points.

Coach Sulayman Kuyateh stuuters again as he is yet to pick his first three points in two matches following a yet another drab stalemate with Interior who earlier came on the back of a 4-1 mauling to Gambia Ports Authority.

Academy Boys Jane Joof's Samger dared the Ferry Boys Gambia Ports Authority humbling Ports on a score of 1-0.

Sang Ndong's Hawks bettered their sloppy performance to hold draw specialist Sea View to a one-all affair.

In Brikama, Gamtel wowed the kaki Boys banging in three second-half goals thanks to Sam Gibba's opener before substitute Hamang Conteh made it 2-1 before Modou Sarr sealed off a complete show of attacking prowess with a last-gasp tap-in.
