The 2012-2013 Kombo South district football tournament runners-up Tujereng on Sunday shared spoils with Tanji in the 2013-2014 the late Kajali Badjie and late Ismaila Nyassi Kombo South district football tournament, after a goalless draw in a well-contested local derby played at the Jambanjelly Football Field.

Tujereng, wholost to Sifoe 1-0 in the final last year, came all out for a win against their local rivals Tanji to grab the vital three points to keep their chances of qualifying for the quarterfinal and were able to threaten their opponents’ defence line but failed to make best use of their limited goal-scoring opportunities.

Tanji, on the hand, were absolutely superb and solid at the back but were very weak at the upfront. They also created copious scoring opportunities but failed to utilize their limited chances thus the game ended goalless.

Tujereng and Tanji are leading group B with a single point each in one game after their goalless draw at the weekend, and Nyofelleh and Mamuda are with zero point but are yet to play a game in the competition.

Banyaka and Jambur are currently topping group C with 1 point in one outing following their goalless draw in the opening game played at the Tujereng Football Field on Saturday

While reigning champions Sifoe and Jambanjelly are languishing with zero points as they are yet to play a game in the championship, they will be hoping to win their upcoming games to keep their dreams of making it to the quarterfinal.
