Sainey Sambou’s last grasp assault fires Brikama Utd to win in 1st Division

Wednesday, November 28, 2018

It was midfielder Sainey Sambou alias Butta’s last grasp strike that inspired Brikama United to a victory in the 2018-2019 Gambia Football Federation (GFF) domestic division one league.

They defeated Tallinding United 1-0 in their opening league, encounter played at Box Bar Mini Stadium in Brikama on Monday evening.

The Sateyba boys, who finished fourth in the top flight league last season, were absolutely instrumental in the game and crafted several goal scoring opportunities.

The creative midfielder missed a penalty before netting a late minute goal to inspire Brikama United to a slender win over visiting Tallinding United.

The Tallinding-based club were completely resilient and contained Brikama United in the game but bounded the maximum three points to Sateyba boys in the dying minutes of the game.

Brikama United now leveled on points with Marimoo and Wallidan in the top flight league with 3 points each after edging-past Tallinding United, Gambia Ports Authority and Banjul United in their opening league encounters.

Tallinding United, Gambia Ports Authority and Banjul United are all pointless after losing to Brikama United, Marimoo and Wallidan in their opening league fixtures.
