Earlier in week six, played earlier, Ali Sowe's brace helped Serrekunda -United East get past Young Africans on Saturday at the Serrekunda East Mini-Stadium.

Serrekunda-United who managed only 2 victories in six matches opened the scoring with just 3 minutes on the clock through striker Ali Sowe before increasing his tally to two in the 86th minute with a superb close-range finished.
