SV Laar FC on Monday defeated Juventus FC by 2-0 in a game that was ended just after ten minutes into the second half by referee Landing Nyassi due to Juventus FC players’ (notably captain David Gomez and Alieu Ceesay) attempting to beat him.

The whole trouble started when Juventus FC conceded their second goal just four minutes into the second period of the match, with captain David Gomez protesting, which resulted in his first booking by the referee.

Things got out of hand in the 10th minute of the second period of the game, when a Juventus FC player went down inside SV Laar FC’s eighteen yard-box, and appealed for a penalty which was not awarded by referee Landing Nyassi, resulting in captain David Gomez approaching him again and, in the process, receiving a red card after an exchange of words with the referee.

David Gomez and Alieu Ceesay both attempted to fight the referee, after he had already sent off David Gomez for protesting against him for not awarding the penalty.

Consequently, Ousman Jallow, head coach of Juventus FC, entered the field to stop his players from touching the referee, but could not also hide his disappointment with the referee after he ended the game with just ten minutes played in the second period, even though there were PIU officers present to protect the referee. 

Ebrima Sowe and Ebou Sanyang scored SV Laar FC’s goals in the 8th and 44th minutes of the game to earn their side its first win of the nawetan competition in three games.
