First division outfit LISCR and Keitrace FC continued their unbeaten streak, while Jubilee FC grabbed a pulsating draw to top Group A in the ongoing LFA League.
The 2012 football champion, LISCR FC thumped in-form FC Fassell 3-1 in a convincing fashion Saturday as if the Cooper Sarnor’s men were made to fight for all three points.
The Ship boys were unconvincing in the first 30 minutes and never really hit top gear at the goal fencing the Red Cross but a swap of position which sent skipper Mohammed Varney on the left fling and put net-tender Dominic Jarteh in front of the goal, made LISCR comfortable before the break.
LISCR’s midfield ace Julius Nah and hefty right-winger Samir Kamara ’s struggle in the axis became fruitful when Jarteh’s fiddly shot beat goalie Jeremiah Sickey to put his side in the lead in the 39th minute.
FC Fassell’s core defenders Oliver Sossa and Musa Dagbeson might have still be in the shock owing to an elementary miss-out of a cross ball from Kamara which was exceptionally converted by Stephen Seameh in the 41st minute.
Sam ‘Chebli’ Kollie pulled one back for FC Fassell with 34 minutes to go.
Coach Matthew Julutweh’s decision to replace the so-called FC Fassell’s marksman Kesselly Kamara was criticized but the stand-in’s goal silenced the noise and the substitution also, saw a couple of excellent chances go begging, although LISCR ultimately sealed all three points 11 minutes from time.
Although FC Fassell came into the clash in fine form, LISCR’s fighting spirit kept them alive.
The Gardnersville based team is the second leader of Group B, with six points and four goals difference.
Keitrace’s hitman Amadiah Kawah netted the first hat trick of the 2015 LFA League against Aries FC’s 5-1 loss.
In Keitrace’s opener game, she whipped MPA Anchors 4-1.
Over the weekend, NPA Anchors whipped LPRC Oilers, 1-0 in Kakata to sit third in the Group B. The Anchors bowed 4-1 on Sunday to Keitrace FC at the ATS while FC Fassell forced LPRC to 1-1 tie.
LPRC Oilers is fourth with one point and one goal difference while FC Fassell is 5th with more goals against and Aries.
Meanwhile Jubilee tops Group A yesterday with four points and five goals difference. If BYC won IE more than four goals she would become the group leader, but if less than four she would be second with four points, evidently of the 2-0 lead up to press time yesterday.
If Nimba United maintained her 1-0 lead, she would be third on the table also with four points and Watanga would be 4th with two points. Monrovia Breweries would be 5th with a point and IE would be without a point.
