Kartong are set to clash with Tanji in the 2015 Kombo South District football tournament final after eliminating Tujereng and Nyofelleh in their semifinal matches at the Sanyang football field.
Kartong beat Tujereng 7-6 on a marathon penalty shootout, after the regulation time failed to produce a winner in the semifinal to progress to the district’s biggest football fiesta for the third time after losing to Sanyang 2-0 in the 2000 final and Farato in 2008 final on penalties, after the regulation time failed to produce a winner.
Tanji beat Nyofelleh in the other semifinal game to sail to the final for the second time after losing to Sifoe 1-0 in the 2014 final played at the Jambanjelly football field.
The Folonko boys will be striving for a victory against the beach boys to clinch their Kombo South District’s biggest football fray title since the inception of the tournament in the 80s.
The beach boys, on the other hand, will also be fighting for a win to claim their first-ever Kombo South district tournament title.
It would be recalled that Sifoe won the Kombo south district football tournament for the past three years, but were eliminated in the group stage in the 2015 edition.
