Sotuma Sere United on 19 February 2013 beat Koina FC 2-0 in the ongoing third edition of the annual Dynamic Sarahuleh Association For Changes and Development Tournament.

Musa Kanuteh scored both goals for Sotuma Sere United in the 46th and 75th minutes of the game to give his side their first three points of the competition at the encounter played at the Father Gough Sports Complex in Manjai Kunda.

Speaking to reporters shortly after the game, Abdoulie Jallow, head coach of Sotuma Sere United, said he was very much pleased with his players and the win because they stuck to his game plan.

Their target this year is to win the trophy, he said, adding that they would do their best to ensure they emerge triumphant.

He also thanked all those who supported the team, either in cash or kind, during their preparation for the tournament, saying they all want to see the progress of their village.

He also called on the fans to come out in their large numbers to support the team.

His players are determined to achieve success in all their encounters, he said, adding that they will even prepare more for their next game.

Suwanding Marong, head coach of Koina FC, said his team lacks collectiveness because his players come for training on and off.

His defence, he added, was also sloppy during the game.

He says he always urges his players to maintain discipline because without it they would not be able to achieve any success.

They will prepare very well for their next encounter to be able to collect the maximum points, he however said.

Isatou Sinera, assistant coordinator of the Dynamic Sarahuleh Association For Changes and Development, said she was impressed about the progress of the tournament, since everything has been going on smoothly.

She called on all Sarahulehs to come out and support their teams as the tournament is meant to bring all Sarahulehs in the country under one umbrella.

She also urged everyone to maintain discipline during the tournament as well as join hands with members of the executive so they could take the association forward.
