A sensational 82nd minute flying header from Steve Biko centre back Modou Jallow was enough for the Bakau giant killers to collect a narrow one-nil win over Hawks in an action packed and well attended GFA Division One league match at the country's biggest football arena on Saturday.

Biko that secured one of its most outstanding achievements as they occupied the second spot last season on 33 points, 11 points behind the champions Armed Forces began the campaign in a spectacular style, after edging pass the 2006 league champions Real De Banjul with an impressive 2-nil advantage before turning out in a dramatic fashion to snatch a late win over Hawks to collect their first two wins in a row.

The 2001 FA cup title holders snatch a late winner when the U-17 trialist Modou Jallow AKA (Fedo) took advantage of a clever long range free-kick by right back Modou Jatta, within the twinkle of an eye. The rocky centre back drilled home a power header into the top corner of the net to the delight of Coach Abdoulie Bojang, who has been anxiously waiting for the first goal of a titanic encounter.

Hawks whose first match of the championship against Bakau United failed to proceed due to the sudden demise of Coach Sang Ndong’s brother last week went into Saturday's encounter aiming to put that sad news behind them to collect their first victory of the twelve club championship. But the Banjul club's efforts of going away with any victory was dealt with a hammer blow when they conceded their first win against the Bakau giants killers who entertained them to a hard fought one-nil victory, thanks to a late goal by Modou Jallow.
