Gunjur United on Friday defeated Misira United of Brikama 2-1 in the week-eleven fixtures played at the Gunjur Nyamina football field to top the 2015-2016 West Coast Regional third division league.

The Brikama-based outfit were unbeaten in nine league matches prior to their Friday’s tie with the Gunjur-based outfit.

Gunjur United opened the scores through creative midfielder Salifu Bapa Bojang alias Aaron Ramsey before break.

Winger Memba Fatty alias Andreas Iniesta sealed the victory for Gunjur United after the interval, from penalty spot after Misira United’s defender handled the ball inside the eighteen to earn the Gunjur-based outfit the vital three points to top the West Coast Regional third division league with 20 points in ten league matches.

Misira responded back quickly for an equalizer and managed to pull back one through striker Dembo Darboe in the dying minute of the game, which eventually proved to be a consolation goal for the Brikama-based outfit.
