Fc Kallon Suffer First Sierra Leone Premier League Defeat
Fc Kallon succumbed to a two nil defeat against a zealous East End Lions team which was by far the match’s better side of Sunday evening clash. In a stadium packed with fans surplus the expected by pundits before the encounter, league leaders Fc Kallon could not live up to the heat of their guests from the first sound of Referee’s Dawudu Williams whistle to his last. East End Lions shown true purpose of a title battle which they won through due resilience and a stiff tactical approach.
The brilliance of twin brothers Alhassan and Alusine Koroma was unmatched prompting endless roars from fans who were touched by their countless gimmicks. The midfield struggle was entirely won by the Killers midfield pair of John Caulker and Abu Dumbuya with the later dictating it pace throughout the cause of the process.
East End Lions will get the match breakthrough in the twenty eighth minute from a lofty pass by Alhassan Koroma coupled up with a defensive mixed up allowing Musa N. Kamara to chip on top of goalkeeper Isaac Caulker’s head and sent the ball into an empty net.
Despite the setback, the Cavallians cannot still keep up with the pace of their opponents doing little to salvage something before the match’s recess.
East End Lions came out of the recess possessing the same momentum they have in the first half which actually made them the better side of the first forty five minutes.
Fc Kallon in the second half took a different approach to the match, dictating it earlier pace and creating some few half cut chances, but the defiance of East End Lions defenders gave them little or no space to penetrate.
The witty figure of Alhassan Koroma was a class apart for the Cavallians defenders, mesmerising and keeping fans lively throughout the match. The introduction of Mamoud Fofanah, Saidu Fofanah and Abu Komeh did little to change the scope of a match well balanced on one side.
Another poor defensive setup in the seventy sixth minute paved way for left full back Foday Kamara to send the ball in the top right hand corner of goalkeeper Caulker’s net from a wallless free kick.
The win for Lions means they go joint top with Fc Kallon with twenty three points and one game to spare, while the defeat for Fc Kallon was their first in the league in twelve(12) matches played and still sit top of the log on goal difference, but a win or draw for the Killers in the next outing to Ports Authority could see them fall one space down.
