As Dunes complete a brace over Passamai

FC Bax on Friday thumped whipping boys Sibindinto FC 2-0 in the 2016 Green Vision International Estate Company Limited-sponsored Gunjur Nawettan.

As the reigning league and Super Cup champions Dunes FC, on the other hand, completed a brace over Passamai FC.

FC Bax were eliminated in the quarter and semifinals in the league and knockout but qualified to the nawettan proper as the best loser after losing to Lanuja FC on penalties following their goalless draw in regulation time.

Both teams made a stunning start to the game and caused several goal-scoring attempts at each other’s goal mouth but the first half ended blank.

Upon resumption of the game, FC Bax brought in several fresh legs to strengthen their striking force and did open the scores through substitute striker Alasanna Touray alias Lana in the 74th minute of the game after capitalizing on centre-back Ebrima Touray aka Rio’s defensive blunder, to fire home the opener.

Moment later, FC Bax found themselves 2-0 up in the 76th minute of the game through an own goal by defender Ebrima Touray aka Rio after striker Lamin Jallow aka Sako’s shot was denied by the wood work to seal victory for FC Bax.

Sibindinto FC reacted quickly for an equalizer but could not break through FC Bax’s solid defence thus the game ended 2-0 in favour of FC Bax.

Elsewhere, league and Super Cup champions Dunes FC completed a brace over Passamai FC after beating Gunjur-based outfit 1-0 on Sunday.

It would be recalled that Dunes FC thrashed Passamai FC 3-1 in the 2016 Gunjur Super Cup final a week ago.

FC Bax are leading group D with maximum 3 points in one game and Sibindinto FC with zero point in one game.

Dunes FC are also leading group A with maximum 3 points in one match and Passamai FC with zero point in one match.
