Santo Su FC on 20 August 2013 defeated Kabafita FC 2-1 in the opening game of the 2013-2014 Brikama Nawettan game played at the Brikama Mini Stadium.

Santo Su FC and Kabafita both came into the game with the intention of bagging the maximum points to keep their chance of qualifying for the second round as well as avoiding relegation after their dismal performance in Brikama Nawettan last season.

It was Santo Su FC who carried the vital three points after netting two stunning goals to snatch their first in the Brikama Summer biggest football fray after their woeful performance last season.

Santo Su is a household name in Brikama Nawettan in the early 2000s and won series of trophies as well as produced very good players for the Brikama Super Nawettan team.

While Kabafita FC’s lone strike only proved to be a consolation goal, they need to win their two remaining group games in order to stand a better chance of qualifying for the second round as well as avoid relegation.

Meanwhile, Mbemba Manneh’s hat-trick inspired Steve Biko FC to a convincing 5-2 victory over drubbing Sibindinto FC side in the ongoing Gunjur Nawettan game played at the Gunjur Nyamina Football Field on Tuesday.
