Brikama-based outfit Bombada United recently defeated Banjul-based outfit Young Africans 3-1 in the 2013-2014 Gambia Football Federation second division league fixtures played at the Brikama Box Bar Mini Stadium.

The game was not an easy road to cross as both sides launched series of goal-scoring opportunities at each other’s goal mouth but it was Bombada United who were able to snatch the vital three points after scoring three stunning goals to dash Young Africans hopes of coming back to their feet.

Young Africans responded quickly for an equalizer and mounted pressure on Bombada United as well as created some goal-scoring opportunities but managed to pull back one goal, which eventually proved to be a consolation for them, thus the game ended 3-1 in favour of Bombada United.

The victory has boosted Brikama-based outfit Bombada United’s chances of gaining promotion to the top tier next season since making their debut in the country’s tier football last season and finished 3rd place.

Bombada United missed promotion to the premier tier to Banjul United after finishing 3rd place on the second tier last season, while Young Africans were demoted to the second tier after finishing at the bottom in the top flight last season following their dismal performance.
