Reports were scary prior to the match that the Lions camp was stumbling – not in form to take on the city boys. The fans had to wait when the end result threw their apprehension into jubilation.
The match was considered a crucial one for both teams but it was East End Lions who carried the day with Foday Koroma’s fifteen minute lone goal. The returning Foday Koroma aka Kaka from Chelsea’s West London Academy was excited to have produced the golden toes.
Freetown City FC brought into the match fresh legs ahead of the hour mark to upset the Lions boys and parried shots that shook the Eastern Lions back third of defense, but an equalizer was not forthcoming with all the chances they made.
Young Idriss Scott spoke to our reporter on his brilliant through pass to Foday Koroma who poached the goal. He said: “I feel very much happy and proud of the team’s performance for being able to maintain a first half lead to the full 90 minute. It is important that we secured all the three points which means more to the team”, he said.
“Am just too excited and passionate about the match and I must say thanks to my colleagues for being supportive, this helped to improve my game”, he noted.
In another matchday result, the Kenema guys, Kambo Eagles were forced into a draw with Central Parade at the Kenema town field on Friday evening.
