Dippakunda United on Tuesday came from a goal down to beat Gambisara United 2-1 in the Dynamic Sarahuleh Association for Changes and Development (DSACAD) tournament at the Serrekunda East Mini-stadium.
Gambisara United took the lead through Sickou Drammeh in the 9th minute of the game from a penalty spot but Dippakunda United responded in the 22nd minute of the game when Bajaidi Drammeh headed home for his side thus the first half ended 1-1.
Mama Drammeh sealed the victory for Dippakunda United in the 49th minute of the game from a sensible header to bag all three points for his team.
Dippakunda United were reduced to ten men in the 68th minute of the game when goalkeeper Basiru Drammeh was sent off after being shown a second bookable offence.
In the 3pm kick-off of the same day, Jarintos FC hammered Aloungari FC 3-0.
Bajafara Drammeh’s 28th minute goal and a brace from Kababa Drammeh in the 30th and 41st minutes of the game were just enough to earn Jarintos FC an easy ride over Aloungari FC.
Speaking to reporters shortly after the game, Lamin Drammeh, the head coach of Dippakunda United, said he was delighted collecting all maximum three points at the expense of Gambisara United, noting that Gambisara United are not a small team as far as Sarahuleh football is concerned.
He warned their next opponents to be fully prepared against them because they would get to the next game with the aim to secure all three points.
He finally thanked the fans of the team for coming out in their large numbers to cheer the team up.
Ousman Dukureh, head coach of Gambisara United, said he was not discouraged by the defeat because they still have two games to play and it is positive winning those games and qualifying.
Papa Njie, an elder to the association, said he was delighted with the organisation of the tournament, which, he said, was long overdue because it was a form of bringing all Sarahulehs together under one umbrella to play and interact.
He added that Sarahulehs are known to be together as one family.
