Benghazi FC was Sunday crowned champions of the 2018-2019 Kunkujang Jatta-Ya fitness football tournament after beating Fula Kunda FC 1-0 in the final played at the Kunkujang Jatta-Ya village football field.

The tournament was organised by the village’s sports committee to develop football and maintain discipline, togetherness and to foster understanding among youth in the village.

Assan Badjie alias Bakayoko gave Benghazi the lead in the 10th minute of the game from penalty spot after Sambou Manneh downed Assan Manneh inside the eighteen yard box.

Fula Kunda re-acted for an equalizer and came very close to leveling the scores on numerous occasions but were not clinical in front of goal post.

As winner, Benghazi went home with 8000 dalasi while the opponent Fula Kunda FC pocketed home 500 dalasi as runners up.
