The current West Coast Regional third division league champions, Jambanjelly United, on Sunday beat Busumbala 2-1 in the week five fixtures played at the Jambanjelly football field to keep their hopes of retaining their 2013-2014 league crown.

The Jam-city boys, who lost to Sifoe United in the all-Kombo South derby clash a fortnight ago, were able to secure a slender win against the Kombo North team to boost their title hopes.

The defeat was Busumbala’s first-ever defeat in the league since it started in mid-January 2015.

Brufut United were awarded the vital three points, after their opponent, Nema United, failed to turn up for their week five fixtures at the Brufut football field at the weekend.

Brufut United are now second place in the league with 12 points in five games, and a single point behind league leaders, Gunjur United, who have bagged 13 points in five games.

Busumbal are now third place with 10 points in five games, and Jambajelly United are mid-table with 7 points in four games, with a game in hand.
