The 2012 Super Nawettan champions Brikama on Saturday beat Manjai 1-0 in the opening game of the 2016 FiBank-sponsored Super Nawettan played at the Independence Stadium in Bakau.

Brikama are supposed to play against the current Super Nawettan champions Serrekunda West in the opening game but the champions withdrew from the country’s community biggest football fray after a fracas between Serrekunda West Sports Organistion and Kanifing Municipality Sports Committee.

The Sateyba boys snatched the vital three points after netting in a single goal and missed a penalty to grab their first victory in the 2016 FiBank-sponsored Super Nawettan.

Brikama are now currently topping group A with maximum 3 points in one game following their hard-fought 1-0 win over Manjai in the opening game.

Manjai are bottom in group A with zero point in one game after their 1-0 defeat to Brikama in the opening match. They hope, in their next game, to keep their chances of qualifying for the quarterfinal.
