BYC I head coach, Cooper Sarnor has expressed confidence of winning the 2015/2016 Championship after a crucial 2-1 win over defending football champions Nimba United on Saturday.
The newly employed BYC I head coach said he is not only convinced that his side would win the title race because of the caliber of players, but also of their deadly plots.
Despite being License B holder, Coach Sarnoh said he’s better than a License A coach and would win the championship.
It has become a controversial talk over Coach Sarnor with BYC against a “new ruling” from the LFA that this year only License A coaches would be allowed to coach 1st division teams.
BYC challenged the LFA decision and argued that the LFA would begin to effect that on the national team – in which James Debbah and Kelvin Sebwe are License B coaches.
However, BYC I’s win over the weekend put them on top of the 1st division log with six points out of two games.
BYC’s Most Valuable Player and defensive midfielder Junior Barshall raised the curtain in the 45th minute from a straight-tricky shot around the center circle on the Blue Field.
In the 68th minute, Sylvanus Morris increased the tally through a skillful assist from Van Dave Harmon.
Newly signed Folay Sumah from Sierra Leone rotated the score for Nimba United from a scramble ball.
Earlier, Nimba United’s midfield maestro Babu Kollie was sent out of the field owing to a “foul,” and Coach Kollie Korvah described it as a “wise call” and threatened to drop him because of his continuous un-sportsmanship.
Also, at the ATS on Saturday, Watanga and Holder drew 0-0; and LISCR FC convincingly beat Mighty Dragon 6-0.
In the opening games fortnight ago, BYC convincing beat Keitrace FC 4-0, a score-line, which the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of BYC Football, Robert Sirleaf called a “Statement made from BYC.”
The 2015 LFA champions and LPRC Oilers settled to a 2-2 draw, including LISCR and Watanga; and Holders and ELWA United.
FC Fassell narrowly whipped Mighty Dragon 1-0.
Yesterday – Sunday, January 31, ELWA also convincingly thrashed Keitrace 4-0; and FC Fassell led LPRC 1-0 up to press time.
