The 2015-2016 domestic division one league champions Gambia Ports Authority on Sunday thrashed Samger 3-0 in the week-two fixtures played at the Banjul KG5 Mini Stadium to close gap on 2016-2017 domestic division one league leaders Marimoo to just two points.

The ferry boys were held to a 1-1 draw by Bakau giant killers Steve Biko in their opening league fixtures prior to their Sunday’s 3-0 win over Academy boys to close gap on current league Marimoo in the top flight with only two points, who have won their two opening league fixtures after beating Tallinding United and Bombada.

Gambia Ports Authority opened the scores through midfielder Muhammed Kabba in the first half before Alagie Sarr and Mbemba Colley netted the second and third goal in the second half to inspire Gambia Ports Authority to a resounding 3-0 victory over Samger to close gap on league leaders Marimoo to just two points after two games played in the country’s premier league.

Samger responded back quickly for an equaliser and came very close to pulling one but squandered their limited goal-scoring opportunities thus the game ended 3-0 in favour of Gambia Ports Authority.

Gambia Armed Forces beat Hawks 1-0 at the Serrekunda East Mini Stadium to land their first-ever win in the new league season.

Elsewhere, Bakau giant killers Steve Biko drew goalless with Brikama United in the other week-two fixtures played at the Independence Stadium in Bakau on the same day.

League champions Gambia Ports Authority, Brikama United and Gambia Armed Forces are second, third and fourth with 4 points each in two league matches.

Tallinding United, Real De Banjul and Hawks are fifth, sixth and seventh in the league with 3 points each in two league matches.

Bakau giant killers Steve Biko are eighth in the league with 2 points in two league matches following their 1-1 and goalless draw against current league champions Gambia Ports Authority and FF Cup champions Brikama United.

Gamtel, Samger and Serrekunda United are ninth, tenth and eleventh in the league with only 1 point in two league matches.
