Real De Banjul on Sunday thrashed Armed Forces 3-1 in the week-ten fixtures to bounce back to their winning way in the 2013-2014 Gambia Football Federation (GFF) division one league played at the Banjul KG5 Mini Stadium.

Real De Banjul lost to Samger 1-0 in the week-nine fixtures played at the Serrekunda East Stadium last weekend knowing that a defeat against Armed Forces would hamper their title ambition. They therefore caused many troubles in the goal mouth of Armed Forces.

Bubacarr Trawally, alias Steve, gave Real De Banjul the lead in the 3rd minute of the game after slashing through Armed Forces’ defence line to give the city boys the lead.

Moments later, Real De Banjul found themselves 2-0 ahead when Bubacarr Trawally netted the second goal in the 16th minute of the game, from Famara Jarjue’s brilliant cross, to complete his brace, before Abdoulie Jallow sealed the victory in the 32nd minute of the game to snatch the vital three points.

Baboucarr Badjan’s 77th minute long-range strike only proved to be a consolation.

Interior have also bounced back after having the upper hand against newly-promoted side Banjul United at the Brikama Box Bar Mini Stadium.

Elsewhere, Hawks were held to a goalless draw by Bakau United in the other week-ten fixtures played at the Serrekunda East Mini Stadium the same day.

In the other week results, Brikama United beat Samger 1-0 at the Serrekunda East Mini Stadium on Saturday. Bully Drammeh was on target for Brikama United in the 16th minute of the game.

Gamtel defeated Wallidan 2-1 with goals from Sam Gibba and Assan Ceesay in the 3rd and 32nd minute of the game respectively, while Modou Lamin Manneh’s 52nd minute strike proved to be a consolation for the blue boys.

Gambia Ports Authority have snatched their first win in the 2013-2014 GFF division one league following their 1-0 win over current league champions Steve Biko at the Banjul KG5 Mini Stadium.

Real De Banjul are still leading the league table with 19 points in ten games, Brikama United are 2nd position with 19 points in ten games, as a result of Real De Banjul’s hegemony on goal difference.

Wallidan and Gamtel are 3rd and 4th positions respectively with 15 points each but Wallidan have played more games than Gamtel, who have a game in hand against Samger.

Hawks and Interior are 5th and 6th positions respectively with 12 points each in ten games. Reigning league champions Steve Biko, Banjul United and Samger are 7th, 8th and 9th positions with 11 points in ten games, save for goal difference.

Bakau United and Armed Forces are 10th and 11th positions respectively with 10 points each in ten games, while Gambia Ports Authority are rooted at the bottom of the league table with 8 points in ten games.
