Striker Ibrahim Keita took his personal goal tally to six with a brace as East End Tigers registered their fifth win of the season, defeating Central Parade 3-1 on Friday at the Siaka Steven Stadium.
The Yellow Submarines were brilliant, racing into a three-goal lead before the 75th minute. Ibrahim Keita scored a brace, with both goals coming in the first-hour mark.
After their two goals first-half lead, the home team extended their tally with a goal from Osman Shanghai in the 67th-minute before the visitors pulled one back through Eze Kelechi, but his goal was only a consolation goal.
A season-best for the Tigers player Keita, netting his six goals of the campaign.
As a result, the Tigers registered their fifth win of the campaign against the fourth-placed side Central Parade to gain 23 points from 15 games played.
The season continued today with Bo Rangers hosting Police FC and Freetown City FC, who defeated Wusum Stars in their last outing, taking a much improved Kallon FC.
