BYC II Overcomes Marrakech but Fails to Advance


In their second leg CAF Championship League encounter yesterday at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium, Barrack Young Controllers, ll, played a yeoman’s game and had all the chances to have cancelled their opponents, Kawkab Marrakech of Morocco 3-0, but managed to score 2-0 which is not enough to see them through to the next round.

The Liberian side, beaten 3-0 in the first leg in Morocco turned the formbooks in their favor and wasted a penalty award before scoring another spot kick and then added the second goal in the second half.

The Liberians needed 3-0 to have cancelled Kawkab’s lead and then campaign for the final goal which evidently it was in their reach. They played as if possessed, but with the first penalty loss and their hunger for goals aggressively haunted their opponents, the Moroccans adopted a system to protect their lead.

Playing under the principle that if the Moroccans could score three goals without reply at home, the Liberians could do the same in Monrovia, the Liberians played with a simple objective of scoring as many goals as they could which did not materialize.

BYC ll’s failure to qualify has concluded the campaign of Liberian teams in the CAF Competitions. Nimba United, representing the country in the CAF Confederation Cup, fell to Union Duoala both at home and in Cameroon to end their campaign.
