Koko FC a football academy based at Old Jeshwang last Tuesday played a 2-2 draw with neighbours Old Jeshwang Prison Service FC in a test match played in order to assess the state of preparedness for both teams prior to the forth coming qualifiers to the nawettan proper.

At the game played at the GTTI football field, Koko FC dominated and controlled possession in the initial stage of the game creating numerous goal attempts at the goal mouth of their opponents who were resilient to the pressure in the first 30 minutes of the first half.

In the 35minute of the first half Babucar Jeng of Koko FC gave his team the lead to usher in some wake up call to the Prison Club and responded by putting up more pressure to level the score but the first half ended 1-0 to Koko FC,

At the resumption of play on the hour mark of the game Koko FC apparently seems to snatch away the three points when defender Abdullah Bass, Alias Zacasta, scored a stunning and spectacular goal increasing the score to 2-0 for Koko FC.

But, however, Old Jeshwang Prison Service FC reacted swiftly and made their opponent felt their presence when the giant striker of the Prison Club reduced the score to 2-1 in the 67th minute. This goal served as an inspiration to the Prison Club and started to muster some strength coupled with some changes at the Prison Club defence which really paid dividends for the Prison Club and in the 78th minute, the number 14 of Old Jeshwang Prison Service FC levelled the score to 2-2, the score that left Koko FC frustrated at the end of the 90th minute.
