Red Star FC and Reliance FC are set to battle for the 2016 Green Vision International Real Estate Company Limited-sponsored Gunjur Nawettan league title after Dunes FC and Kundembo FC to reach the final.

Red Star FC beat the reigning league champions Dunes FC 1-0 in the semifinal game played at the Gunjur Nyamina Football Field on Saturday to progress to the league since 2015 season.

Defender Ebrima Jatta alias Mario’s 43 second long-ranged strike was enough to earn Red Star FC a place in the league.

The Nyofelleh-based outfit fought back for an equaliser but to no avail thus the game ended 1-0 in favour of Red Star FC.

Reliance FC defeated Kundembo FC 4-2 on penalties, after their 1-1 draw in the regulation time in the other semifinal played on Sunday.

Prolific striker Yaya Touray, alias Rapa, gave Reliance FC the lead in the first half from an excellent strike.

Midfielder Ebrima Njie alias Cesc levelled matters for Kundembo FC in the second half to cancel striker Yaya Touray’s first half strike to make it 1-1.

This pushed the game into a post-match penalty shootout, which ended 4-2 in favour of Reliance FC.

Reliance FC will now face Red Star FC in the 2016 Green Vision International Real Estate Company Limited sponsored Gunjur nawettan league final after eliminating defending champions Dunes FC and runners-up Kundembo FC in the semifinal matches at the weekend.
