FC Kallon go three Points Clear in Premier League Screamer
FC Kallon cemented their position at the top of the Sierra Leone Premier League table after winning by one goal to nil against Kamboi Eagles on Saturday evening in a match classified as a screamer.
Kamboi Eagles were the brightest in a pulsating first ten minutes of footballing action hitting the woodwork in the process.
FC Kallon gradually came into the match creating endless chances which were also thwarted by Eagles goalkeeper, Mambay Satti.
The match ended goalless in a first half classified by football pundits as the best so far in the Sierra Leone Premier League.
Kamboi Eagles started the second half with a more determined spirit from the dog out, dictating proceedings and providing promising moments.
Ibrahim Turay’s (IB Computer) heroics could not provide the Eagles elusive moment of redemption as most chances were squandered by anxiety.
The introduction of Gibrilla Kamara (Osu) and Ibrahim Kallay (Sogor) midway through the second half by FC Kallon changed the cavallians fortune by stabilising the midfield and creating defensive unrest for Kamboi Eagles.
A cynical tackle by Kamboi Eagles Sallieu Barrie on Sallieu Tarawalie in the 84th minute gifted a set piece opportunity for FC Kallon, leading to a free kick beautifully curled in the top right hand corner of goalkeeper Satti’s goal in the 85th by sensational Emmanuel Samadia.
The defeat for the Eagles against Kallon on Saturday evening is their second after eight matches and further preventing them from scoring from away for the first time in four away outings.
FC Kallon who will be welcomed by third place East End Tigers on Tuesday at the Siaka Stevens Stadium now sit comfortably on top of the log with 18 point till next week, regardless of the outcome result in their Tuesday’s fixture against Tigers.
