The Lawyers opened the scoring through striker Assan Martin in the 14th minute of the game.
The doctors, who were determined and hungry for an equalizer, leveled the scores through Ebrima Jallow in the 19th minute and the first half ended 1-1.
The score line turned in favour of the doctors in the 44th and 47th minutes through Dr Madanneh Ceesay and Amadou Jallow.
