Zonal final descends into chaos

The trophy of the Muhammed Yahya Jammeh Cup was heading to Serekunda East when they took a first half lead through Ousman Touray before tensions erupted with stones thrown at the linesman.

Serekunda East dominated and dictated the pace of the opening minutes and had numerous opportunities to take the lead which they squandered before Bakau also missed their own share of the chances.

Bakau grow in confidence as the game enfolds but an avoidable error from goalkeeper Yaya Sidibeh gifted Ousman Touray a goal in the in the 31st minute to gave Serekunda East a deserved lead.

With his defender raising with Touray, Sidibeh came out of his area when he should’ve stayed in the post. He collided with the defender that allowed Touray to sneak in a tapped the ball into an unguarded net.

Serekunda East goalkeeper Alagie Jobe made a string of fine saves to deny Assan Jatta in two occasions before Ousman Touray and Serekunda East’s second goal was incorrectly ruled out for offside in the second period.

But then, the central referee Papa Gassama had to stopped the play in the 73rd minute when he was alerted by the fourth official that stones are been thrown at the assistant referee on the far side at the Kairaba Avenue end of the Serekunda West Mini-Stadium.

The fracas ended up between the Bakau players and Serekunda East striker Buba Jallow alias Meles. The lad was seen picking something from the Bakau post which many observers believed is a ‘Juju’ before he was chased by a group of angry Bakau players led by Assan Jatta.

The game was called off eventually and no decision is made yet as to the outcome of the game so we will wait and see what the organizing committee will come with after their meeting sooner rather than later.
