KGH Sports Football Academy on Saturday beat Yarambamba Football Academy 4-1 in the final match played at the Brikama Box Bar Mini Stadium to lift the West Coast Region inter-academy football tournament title.

The final was attended by GFF president Lamin Kaba Bajo and other dignitaries.

Yarambamba Football Academy opened the score through Alieu Cassama in the 12th minute of the game from a fantastic shot to give his side the lead.

KGH Sports Football Academy responded back quickly for an equalizer but could not break through Yarambamba’s solid defence, thus the first half ended 1-0 in favour of the New Yundum-based outfit.

On the far side of the field after the early goal, KGH mounted pressure on Yarabamba but could not break through their solid defence, hence the first half ended 1-0 in favour of Yarabamba Academy.

Upon resumption of the game, KGH Sports Football Academy coach Baboucarr Jatta made some tactical changes, which paid dividend when Yahya Danso levelled the score for KGH in the 55th minute of the game to make it 1-all.

Yahya Danso netted the second goal for KGH in the 60th minute of the game.

Amadou Jallow notched in the third goal in the 77th minute from a fine volley before Yahya Danso completed his hat-trick in stoppage time.

As winners, the KGH Sports Football Academy received a giant trophy and two footballs, whilst Yarabamba Football Academy received a small trophy and two footballs.

The best player award went to Kutubo Sanyang of KGH Sports, who received a set of jersey and a pair of football boots.
