LISCR to Represent Liberia at 2022/23 CAF Confederation Cup

LISCR players celebrate with the PetroTrade Cup trophy.  

... Defeat Tony FC 4-2 on penalties 

LISCR FC will represent Liberia at the 2022/23 CAF Confederation Cup after they were crowned winners of the 2021/21 LFA Cup (known as the PetroTrade Cup due to sponsorship reasons).

LISCR had a fair share of the game by recording two goals in the first 30 minutes, thanks to goals from Tommy Songo and Rufus Padmore. Coach Sam Chebli and his boys seem to have fallen asleep as Tony FC got a consolation to end the first half 2-1.

Tony FC returned to the second half rejuvenated and went on leveling the score to 2-2, sending the match to extra time. Both teams were unable to score in the extra time, which resulted in a post-match penalty that LISCR won 4-2.

This was the Shipping Boys’ fifth FA Cup Title after they last won it in 2019. Saturday’s Final was Tony’s first-ever FA Cup, as the players were in the high zeal to win the title after they were promised L$1 million by their president if they had won it.

Elsewhere, in the women’s category, Determine Girls continued their dominance of the season as they went on to complete their double by winning the Women’s PetroTrade Cup. The double champions defeated Ambassadors FC 4-2 at the Tusa Field to climax the season.

Guinean international Bountou Sylla was again the star player after scoring a brace to help her team win the title. She became the first Guinean player to win both league title and FA Cup and first Guinean to win the league back-to-back.
