Ghanaian Brothers eliminated Island Warriors and Nigerian Community also eliminated National Port Authority, yesterday in the first round matches of the Kelvin M. Bayoh friendship soccer tournament at the Conference Center sports ground in Virginia, outside Monrovia.
“The tournament is to honor a member of the Logan Town Old Timers Association,” said organizing chairman Mohammed Sheriff, “it is for his invaluable contribution to uplift the association and its members.”
Ghanaian Brothers’ Seydou Ndaoo found the winning goal in the first half and during the second half his side wasted a penalty that could have raised the tally to 2-0.
The Brothers’ Oumaru Koulibaly was good at his game and helped his side to deny their opponents chances that came their way.
Island Warriors FC is the host of the tournament and having been eliminated, they will sit on the sideline to enjoy and cheer on their favorite teams to win.
In the second game Nigerian Community defeated National Port Authority 1-0 to their NPA’s dream and they too will be watching the rest of the tournament from the sidelines.
The third game was won by Botfa against Doe Community, 4-3 on penalties, after both teams settled to 1-1 at regular time.
The remaining two games scheduled at press time were Clara Town v. Amuenu and Bushrod Bull v Cameroon Community.
The second round matches are scheduled at the Caldwell sports pitch on Sunday, May 18 and in the first match Ghanaian Brothers will clash with Nigerian Community.
The venue of the 3rd Round matches will be determined later, according to Sheriff.
