Gambia: GFA League Roundup

In our round up of the Gambia Football Association, Samger lost on home ground to a ravaging Steve Biko side.

Coach Abdoulie Bojang and men put their defeat to Real De Banjul two weeks ago behind them with an astonishing performance putting three goals past the Academy Boys at the Serrekunda East mini-stadium in a game that ended 3-1.

Gambia Ports Authority eased past Bakau United at the Boxbar mini-stadium on Sunday. Draw specialist Interior held Sea View to yet another stalemate show.

On Saturday, Brikama United picked up their first three points halting Gamtel's fine form taking full advantage of their home grounds.

While first-half had nothing to show the Sateba Boys returned in the other half quite resolute and clutched all points -their first of the season after three matches - courtesy of super sub Yankuba Jarju's last-gasp match-winner.

Jarju controlled well in the box to blast past an advancing Gamtel goalie Baka Ceesay for the winner.

Banjul Hawks slammed two past Young Africans on Saturday at the East park.

Real De Banjul are the sole club to garner all nine points in three matches snatching victory from the jaws of defeat, thanks to Jallow's goal that ultimately proved match winner against Armed Forces. It is a perfect start and on a perfect path for their title defense crusade.

Interestingly, Coach Alagie Sarr won all three matches on fragile margins -one in all games with a total of three goals and no goal concede.

They remain top of the 12-league standing.
