Hawks on Sunday defeated Bombada 3-1 in the first leg of the 2016-2017 GFF FF Cup semifinal played at the Brikama Box Bar Mini Stadium to increase their chances of playing the country’s league cup final.

The Brikama-based outfit were the FF Cup runners-up last season after losing to rivals Brikama United in the final prior to their first-leg clash with the Red Devils.

Red Devils beat them 3-1 to boost their hopes of playing the FF Cup final since 2014 when they lost to Banjul United 1-0 in the final game played at the Independence Stadium in Bakau.
