BK Milan at the weekend thrashed Brufut United 3-1 in the week-six fixtures played at the Brikama Box Bar Mini Stadium to move away from relegation zone in the 2016-2017 Gambia Football Federation second division league.

The Bakau-based outfit are languishing in the relegation zone in the second tier before their resounding win over the Brufut-based outfit, who lost to Fortune FC 1-0 in their last outing at the West Coast Region biggest football arena.

BK Milan were able to materialize their limited goal-scoring opportunities after netting three goals to move away from the danger zone on the league table.

Brufut United managed to notch in one goal, which eventually proved to be a consolation goal for Sanimentereng boys.

The victory was BK Milan’s first-ever win since the commencement of the country’s second tier last month.

The defeat was Brufut United’s successive defeat. They are now five points behind league leaders Red Hawks.

Elsewhere, Blue Star snatched their first point in the second tier following their goalless draw with Fortune FC at the Serrekunda East Mini Stadium on the same day.
