Hotel boys Seaview on Friday defeated Latrikunda United 1-0 in the Week 3 fixtures of the 2011-2012 Gambia Football Association (GFA) second division league played at the Serrekunda West Mini Stadium.

Both sides came into the game single points with the intention of bagging the maximum points and moving away from relegation as well keeping their hopes of gaining promotion to the topflight next season.

Seaview’s goal opened the score through Julaba Suwareh in the 77th minute of the game to give his side the lead, which eventually proved to be the winner for the hotel boys.

Latrikunda United fought back for an equaliser but could not break through Seaview’s solid defence line thus the game ended 1-0 in favour of Seaview.

Elsewhere, Serrekunda East thrashed debutant Gunjur United 2-0 in the other Week 3 fixtures played at the Brikama Box Bar Mini Stadium on the same day.

Serrekunda East opened the score through Assan Jawo in the 64th minute of the game from a range shot before Matt Jagne sealed the victory in the 81st minute of the game, a spectacular long range strike to make it 2-0 for Serrekunda East.

Seaview, Serrekunda East, Gunjur United have all collected 4 points, but Serrekunda East and Seaview both played two games with a game in hand, while Latrikunda United are still struggling on the table with a point in three games.
