Ports ride past Interior

By Sulayman Bah

Gambia Ports Authority Saturday evening rode past a resolute interior Gambia ports Authorityside to hit the ground running in the league.

Ports were held to a one-all affair in their match before this and needed to buckle down to be considered serious league contenders by picking up points.

Against the Police outfit, Alagie Sarr’s charges left no stone unturned managing to break apart the opponent’s resistance courtesy of a second-half goal. Either sides settled for a goalless affair in the first period and looked to head to the same path in the final part until a well aimed right-footed blast from inside the box found its way to the back of Interior’s net.

Elsewhere, Brikama United breezed past weeping Boys Serrekunda United in Brikama. They were forced to a stalemate affair in their last encounter but managed to squeeze the points off United who are proving every team’s ride having lost most matches in a row.

And finally, Champions Real de Banjul were given a taste of what they should expect this term in what’s already becoming bumpy for the capital-based club. Despite a summer of player signings, Real picked three points in their last two games drawing all.

Bombada stunned the all whites with an opening goal before Real wriggled out a stalemate with an equaliser.
