Friday, February 1st:
Donald Wellington’s 33rd minute strike from a scramble ball in the penalty area was enough to give ‘The Water Front Boys” a precious three points away to the Freetown City Council FC.
Ports Authority came close to increasing the score margin but the Mayor’s Boys, who played brilliantly after conceding the opener, waved all threats to maintain the score sheet.
In the second half, Freetown City Council FC improved their attacking prowess; making three successive shots with two on target in the first ten minutes of the second half.
However, the Water Front Boys were able to contain the Mayor’s Boys; thanks to the brilliant display of one of the league’s most experience goalkeeper, Unisa Koroma.
In the other fixtures of the day, a late goal scored by FC Kallon’s Abu Komeh in Bo City Stadium was enough to give the visitors all three points in a pulsating encounter between two sides that could be described as equals; save for the goalkeeping error that gave the visitors the advantage.
In Kenema, Kamboi Eagles were pegged to a one-all draw by visiting Diamond Stars. The visitors opened the score sheet through an Omega Thoronka’s 15th minute individual brilliance opened the score sheet while the Kamboi Boys got their equalizer in the 62nd minute from an Ibrahim Kamara’s header.
Saturday February 2nd:
On Saturday at the Approved School Grounds, Central Parade defeated host, Anti Drugs strikers by 2-0; making the visitors the first team to score two goals in a single match in the 2019 Sierra Leone Premier League season. Ibrahim Dixon, who accounted for both goals in each segment of the match, became the first player to score a brace this season.
At the Wusum Stadium in Makeni, RSLAF FC suffered a 1-0 home defeat to East End Tigers in a very tight encounter with less entertainment. Baimba Sesay accounted for the goal in the second half; giving the Tigers a very big boost as they go into their second match this weekend.
At the Siaka Stevens Stadium in Freetown, East End Lions enjoyed a back-back win as they defeated the May Park boys by a lone goal scored by defender, Frank Palmer.The win gave The Killers a massive boost as they continue their hunt to stay on top of the league table and remain unbeaten in the 2019 league season.
