Ebbeh Gi on Sunday defeated Cannon 1-0 to reach quarterfinal in the ongoing Serrekunda East Knockout competition played at the Serrekunda East Mini Stadium.

Sulayman Sonko came very close to opening the scores for Ebbeh Gi in the 25th minute of the game but his shot failed to hit the target before Sering Faal netted the only goal for the Tallinding-based outfit in the 51st minute of the game after a deadlock in the first period.

Omar Sonko could have doubled Ebbeh Gi’s lead in the 72nd minute of the game but his effort was denied by the wood work thus the game ended 1-0 in favour of Ebbeh Gi.

Elsewhere, BJ Academy beat Manchester United on the same score line on the same day to sail to the quarterfinal in the Serrekunda East summer biggest football fiesta.

Ebbeh Gi and BJ Academy are both through to the last eight of the Serrekunda East Knockout competition after eliminating Cannon and Manchester United in the round of sixteen at the weekend.
