Momar Academy on Sunday lost to Oxford United 6-5 in a penalty shootout, after goalless draw in the regulation time in the ongoing Serrekunda East Nawettan qualifiers game played at the Serrekunda East mini stadium.

Both teams came into the game with the ambition of winning the clash and qualifying to the nawettan proper; hence launched several goal-scoring opportunities at the each other’s goal mouth.

Ousman Mbowe could have opened the scores for Momar Academy in the 40th minute of the game but his shot wasted wide.

Oxford United also came close to scoring but they also failed to utilize their limited goal-scoring opportunities.

This pushed the game into a post-match penalty shootout, which ended 6-5 in favour of Oxford United.

The victory has afforded Oxford United a place in the next stage of the qualifiers, and the defeat has seen Momar Academy out to hanging their boots till next season.
