Kolongba FC lost to a team composed of football veterans in the semi-finals of the Bundiadu  Nawettan.

The Veterans beat Kolongba FC 2-0.  Despite losing in the semis, Kolongba FC gained automatic qualification to the final following unsporting behaviour by Alieu Manneh of the Veteran side. He was shown a red card by the referee during the game and refused to follow the referee's orders as a result the organising Committee decided to forfeit the Veterans points and gave Kolongba FC a ticket to the final.

In the second semi final,  Bereto FC came from a goal down to squeeze a 2-1 victory out of Bantanto FC.  Lamin Nyani put Bantanto in the lead in he first half.

 Jorbateh Manneh and Aziz Hydara goals in the second half sent Bereto FC to the final.

Kolongba FC will now take on Bareto FC in the final slated for after the holy month of Ramadan.
