Kissy CommunityKissy scored an early goal in the first half of play to secure a 1-0 victory against Kuntoloh in the opening match of the Alhaji Unisa Alim Awoko Memorial inter community football competition at the Approved School playing ground, east of Freetown, on Sunday 10 September 2017.
Osman Kamara, fondly called M2, scored the only goal in the match to give his side the much needed victory against a sunburned and experienced Kuntoloh side.
James Fofanah said 18 communities are competing for the title in the competition, which was organized in honour of the late Alhaji Unisa Alim Awoko Sesay, a renowned football administrator who passed away last year.
Captain of Kuntoloh Community, Kai Gborie, said it was unfortunate that they got a disappointing start in the competition, having narrowly lost to their counterparts.
Gborie further said they felt the absence of a host of key players who were unavoidably absents, but promised they will improve their game plan in the coming matches.
“The defeat means a lot to us, we didn’t plan for it. We actually came here to win, but it ends the other way. We are very much conscious of the fact that we’ve given aware a vital 3 points, therefore we are assuring our fans of winning our remaining matches in the group, “the Captain assured.
Celebrating the victory, Head Coach of Kissy community, Raymond Samuel Lewis hailed his players for their resilient effort in ensuring they keep their opponent off from scoring against them as they went on to defend their lone goal to secure the 3 points.
Lewis boasted that his players have the attitude and energy to win against any opponent. Citing, they will approach each match with different system to overawe their opponent.
He remarked: “My boys are determined to win this trophy as they want to prove to the people of Kissy community that they have good footballers”.
The Coach admitted that he believes in hard work and that has always been the basis of his game. Adding, he will do all he can to inspire his boys to lift the 2017 Awoko trophy
