Red Star Family FC will clash with Reliance Financial Service FC in the 2016 Gunjur Knockout final after winning their semifinal matches played at the Gunjur Nyamina Football Field at the weekend.

Red Star Family FC sailed to the knockout final following their 1-0 win over FC Bax in the semifinal game played on Saturday.

Defender Saikou Barrow scored the only goal for Red Star Family FC, after the interval from a long-range strike to send his side to the knockout final after a deadlock in the first half.

Elsewhere, Reliance Financial Services FC booked their ticket to the knockout final after beating Gam Rock 1-0 in the second semifinal game played on Sunday.

FC Reliance Financial Services opened the scores through centre-back Fabakary Touray aka Maxi, after the interval from the penalty spot after a Gam Rock player handled the ball inside the eighteenth yard box, which eventually proved to be the winner for FC Reliance’s boys and also earned them a place in the knockout final against Red Star Family FC.

Centre-back Bolong Susso alias Del could have leveled the scores for Gam Rock in the dying minute of the game, but his free header went away thus the game ended 1-0 in favour of Reliance Financial Services FC.

The knockout final between Red Star Family FC and Reliance Financial Services will be announced by Gunjur Sports Committee later.
