Sierra Leone Sports: Ports Authority wins; Central Parade and FC Kallon draw

One of the members of the Premier League Board, Morlai Kargbo, said that Ports Authority has jumped to the top of the Sierra Leone Premier League after a one nil victory against Bo Rangers at the Approved School Mini Stadium courtesy of a goal by Foday Mansaray (Ballack) in the 43rd minute. The water front boys overpowered a lively Bo Rangers side in a jam packed Approved School Complex late in the first half of play. Victory for Ports means they are now level on six points with the same number of goals scored on the top of the log with East End Lions who had won against Mighty Blackpool and Old Edwardians at the Siaka Stevens Stadium respectively. Central Parade on the other hand could not produce the same magic which made them comfortable winners against Anti Drugs at the Approved School Complex on Saturday. The draw means Central Parade sits third on the log with three points while yet to score Mighty Blackpool, collect their first point in what was considered a disappointing performance from the two. Central Parade travels to winless Bo Rangers in the southern city of Bo on Saturday, 9 February, while the Tiss Tass Boys host FC Kallon for a classic at the Siaka Stevens Stadium on Sunday, 10th February 2019. Another member of the Ministry of Sport, Festus J. Lahai, said FC Kallon could not prove efficient in front of their fans in an all entertaining match under the floodlights of the Siaka Stevens Stadium on Wednesday evening against a determined Anti Drugs Football club. The match was expected to be a thriller especially from a lively Kandeh Turay for Anti Drugs who mesmerized opponents and fans alike. Mamoud Fofanah (Lampard) would have broken hearts of Anti Drugs fans in two occasions both in the first and second half of play, only to show true profligacy on both ends. Paul Kabba Tucker’s goal was rightfully disallowed in the 67th minute.  A draw was a better fit to an intriguing match un-decisive throughout the ninety minutes. Relieved, Anti Drugs welcome East End Lions at the Approved School Mini Stadium on Saturday, 9th February, encouraged by a far better performance to Saturday’s defeat to Central Parade.
