Sierra Leone Premier League Updates (Saturday February 16)

*The Killers Takes the Summit as Bo Rangers Continue to Stay Down
*The Tis Tas Boys Get First Win as Tigers bow down again at home
*Eagles Claw another Away Win in a 5-goal Thriller

East End Lions had to wait till the last quarter of a pulsating encounter at the Siaka Stevens Stadium to secure all three points against Bo Rangers to be at the summit till the next 24 hours. Thanks to substitute, Solomon Toby, whose second touch of the match put the game to bed. 
The Killers could have got the opener after the referee adjudged Alhassan Koroma to have been fouled in the penalty area. Gibrilla Woobay stood up for the challenge but his shot was parried away by a stubborn Bo Rangers goalie. 
The win gave The Killers three wins and a draw in four matches with ten points, three goals and yet to concede. 
Bo Rangers on the other hand are yet to clinch a single point after losing all four matches, conceding five goals and scoring only one to remain at 13th position on the league table.

At the Parade Grounds, Kambui Eagles secures a 3-2 entertaining win against Central Parade to take their tally to seven points from four matches and move to 5th place temporarily on the league table. 
Football pundits had described Central Parade as the most improved team in the league after winning away to Anti Drugs and Bo Rangers respectively and drew blank against Mighty Blackpool at home. However, pundits might change their opinion after the 5-goal thriller that has seen them dropped from 3rd to 4th temporarily. 
The Kamboi Boys got a 4th minute goal through Ron Gandi Williams but Alpha Conteh cut the jubilations short two minutes later with a solo equalizer; bringing the match back to life.
The visitors however took the lead again in the 26th minutes through Ibrahim Turay and 11 minutes later, Abu Bakarr Kanu’s unsympathetic finish put the game to bed at half time. 
Central Parade got the consolation from a spot kick scored by Alpha Conteh in the 78th minute but time was not on their side to at least get a point from the match.

At the Lungi Community field, East End Tigers suffered a back-back home defeat to Mighty Blackpool, who waited for four games to secure a well deserved lone goal win. Substitute, Paul Kai scored a free header from a Sahr Morsay cross in the 88th minute. 
The win put The ‘Tis Tas Boys tally to four points from four matches and temporarily placed them at 8th position while East End Tigers dropped to 6th position on the league table.
