Who gets the ball? Action at the Blue Field Sports pitch

The Orange-sponsored Liberia Football Association (LFA) second division national league resumes across the country on Tuesday.

Barrack Young Controllers (BYC-II) will meet Junior Professionals at the Blue Field in Monrovia while Freeport FC will meet Jai FC in Kakata, Margibi County at 4:00 PM respectively.

Muscat FC will be without Konah Gbolor when they welcome Nimba Kwado at the North Star sports pitch in Mount Barclay at 2:00 PM.

At the Antoinette Tubman Stadium (ATS), Srimex, formerly ELWA United, will knock boots with Invincible Eleven at 2:00 PM while Pags FC are up against Bristol FC, who will also be without Aloysius Davies, at 4:00 PM.

Gbolor and Davies will serve a two-game ban following their red cards when Bristol drew 3-3 with Muscat on 26 February in a match that witnessed two hat-tricks, five penalties, and seven yellow cards.

In Margibi County, Mighty Blue Angels will take on Tony FC in Unification Town at 4:00 PM.
Moses Korbah misses the first of two matches for Blue Angels following his red card against Srimex on 26 February.

Defending champions Bea Mountain are at home to Gardnersville in Kinjor, Grand Cape Mount County while Heaven Eleven will knock boots with Samaria FC in Sanniquellie at 4:00 PM respectively.

Mighty Barrolle are not in action on match day two due to the odd number of teams.

Fans attending league games stand a great chance to win L$50,000 as part of enticing sponsorship promotions provided by Orange.

An undercover photographer will visit match venues to take photos of a jubilant fan, who will have three days, to identify him/herself on Orange-Liberia Facebook page.

Meanwhile, last Sunday in Ganta, Nimba County, Nimba FC drew goalless with sensational LPRC Oilers in the first division league.

In Kakata, Margibi County, defending champions Barrack Young Controllers (BYC) defeated NPA Anchors 2-0.

William Freeman scored in the 46th and 86th minutes to move BYC at the top of the table.

At the North Star sports pitch in Mount Barclay, Nimba United came from a goal down to beat Keitrace FC 2-1.

Nicolas Blapoh gave the visitors a 50th minute lead but Samir Dukuly equalized in the 68th minute.

Morris Janteh found the winner in the 93rd minute when everyone thought the spoils would have been shared.

In Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, LISCR FC also came from a goal down to beat Jubilee FC 2-1.

Sam Smith handed Jubilee a 66 minute lead but Amadiah Kawah equalized in the 86th minute.

And Emmanuel Tarpeh eased the early season pressure on Gambian coach Tapha Manneh with the winner in the 93rd minute.

At the Antoinette Tubman Stadium, Watanga FC struggled to beat Monrovia Club Breweries 1-0 in game one when James Konuwa scored in the 73rd minute.

And their coach, Matthew Julutweh, said he is on a mission to end the dominance of LISCR and BYC.

“This is a message going across to other teams to do well. Honestly, I am here to stop the dominance of BYC and LISCR. I must admit that Club Beer was a difficult team to beat.”

It was the second successive defeat for Breweries but head coach Francis Samujeabo Sarploh seems not to be troubled.

“From one standpoint, that is not good. From another standpoint, this is practically a new team that we are building. So sometimes it is not about the result but the improvement.”

There was also a late winner in game two at the ATS between Small Town and Fassell.

Anthony Kelgbeh gave Small Town an 18th minute lead after exchanging passes with a teammate but Perfect Deah equalized for Fassell a minute to half time.

Fassell’s George Pele appealed to his critics to start to judge him based on performance after five games.

The league will continue on Wednesday and Watanga can make it three wins in a row with a victory over Keitrace in Buchanan at 4:00 PM.

In Kakata, NPA Anchors will meet Jubilee at 2:00 PM while Small Town will engage undefeated Nimba FC at 4:00 PM.

At the Blue Field, it will be first against third when defending champions BYC take on Nimba United at 4:00 PM.

At the ATS, LISCR will take on Oilers at 2:00 PM while Breweries and Fassell will go in search of their first point at 4:00 PM following two defeats.
