Hawks FC needed a magic bullet from Pa Sarr whose crucial goal against Wallidan FC on Saturday night propels them to 33 points. They have now opened up an interesting title race.

The week began on Friday when the champions Fortune FC once against bite the dust to Bakau giant killers, Steve Biko at the independence stadium in Bakau. Biko inflicted another agony and setback on Jane Joof’s Fortune FC who will now need a tremendous fortune to defend the title they won in style last season. Biko only needed the magic from Ismaila Manneh who scored both goals for them.  Manneh’s two goals defeated the petroleum boys.

On the evening game on Friday, Marimoo FC and Waa Banjul played a lacklustre goalless draw.

On Saturday at Yundum, Team Rhino gripped leaders Brikama United to a stalemate draw. The draw slows down the ‘Satayba’ boys’ title race.

Then yesterday, Sunday, The Gambia Armed Forces and Elite United settled for a one-all draw.  In Basori, Real De Banjul came from behind to deny former head coach Ebou Jarra from winning them on their pitch. It ended Real De Banjul 1-1 Gamtel. A win would have put Real back on top of the table standing.
