As Sierra Leone Premier League gains momentum, on Saturday the Old Edwardians came on very strong to win their second match against RSLAF by two goals to nil (2-0) at the Siaka Stevens Stadium in Freetown. Edmond Michael and Sufian Kalokoh scored goals for Old Edwardians in both half. On the same day in Lungi, Kamboi Eagles played well to defeat East End Tigers at home by a goal to nil (1-0) to secure 4 points from two matches. In Bo, Central Parade registered their second win as they defeated the Bo Rangers by two goals to one (2-1). This is the third straight defeat for Bo Rangers. While East End Lions and Anti Drugs played to a goalless draw at the Approved playing field while Diamond Stars and Freetown City played to a goalless draw in Kono. FC Kallon ride second place on the table of the Sierra Leone Premier League standings after a brilliant performance on Sunday evening, which saw them emerge victorious against Mighty Blackpool by two goals to nil at the Siaka Stevens Stadium. Two late goals, one from the penalty spot by Sallieu Tarawalle in the 83rd minute and another six minutes later from Abu Komeh sealed a deserving victory for the Cavallians overtaking East End Lions on the second spot with the same number of points but a better goal difference. Mighty Blackpool started bright in the early stages of the match dictating the pace of the game and creating scoring chances as well. FC Kallon, after a disappointing showing against Anti Drugs on Wednesday, started showing some team spirit around the 20th minute championed by Emmanuel Samadia and Mamoud Fofanah keeping fans in a jam-packed Siaka Stevens Stadium lively. The defeat for Mighty Blackpool means, the Sierra Leone Premier League’s most decorated team are still searching for their first league goal and three points in this year’s league.
