Sanchaba United on Saturday defeated Old Hands 5-0 in the ongoing late Lamin Janneh memorial football tournament game played at the Sifoe football field.

Sifoe United’s Ebrima Touray aka Stra, Ras Demba and Sainey Jabang, Sanna Barrow and Sheriffo Touray were on the score sheet for Sanchaba United to snatch the vital three points.

Sanchaba United are now with maximum 3 points in one game after their convincing victory over Old Hands, and are aiming to win their remaining games to maintain their hundred percent record in the tournament.

Old Hands are with zero points in one game and they need to win their remaining fixtures to increase their chances of qualifying for the next round, as well as keeping their title ambitions alive.

Elsewhere, on Sunday Orlando beat Canada 1-0 courtesy of Siaka Saidykhan’s strike to clinch their first win in the championship.

Orland are with maximum 3 points in one outing following their slender win over Canada, and are hoping to win to maintain their hundred percent record in the tournament.

The tournament was organized by the Sifoe Sports Committee in memory of the former chairperson of Kombo South District Sports Committee, late Lamin Janneh, who passed away a few months ago after a brief illness.
