Old Edwardians hammered Wusum Stars 4-0 in Freetown to register their first league win of the ongoing season in seven months.

Their last win was back in September 2021 against Bai Bureh Warriors (2-1) in Port Loko.

Edwards’ goals come through winger Ernest Harleston’s hattrick and Mohamed Kamara to ensure a big 4-0 triumph at the Approved School on Saturday.

It was a comfortable evening for the home fans, but the win was not enough to get them out of trouble as they’re still standing second from the bottom with 23 points from 26 matches, four wins eleven defeats and eleven draws.

Their next outing is against East End Tigers a must-win for them if they are to fight their way out of the relegation tussle.

Goals from Abass Conteh, Abdul Sesay and Mohamed Fofanah were enough to hold on to a big win at the Wusum Field. Abu Bakarr Kamara netted Johansen’s only goal.

In Port Loko, host Bai Bureh Warriors defeated Central Parade 2-0 courtesy of two penalties scored by Mohamed Kanu and Momoh Sankoh, respectively. As a result, they moved up to 14th on the log with 27 points.

Recap: Holders Ahly edge Raja in CAF CL quarter-final first leg

Two first-half goals from Amr El Solia and Hussein El Shahaat were enough as Ahly gained an early 2-1 advantage in their CAF Champions League quarter-final first leg match at the Al Salam Stadium in Cairo on Saturday night.

Raja’s Mohamed Zrida pulled one back at the end of the first 45minutes, but the holders held on to a vital home win.

In the second half, Raja looked determined to find the leveller but suffered a setback when Marouane Hadhoudi was sent off for a foul inside the box. However, El Solia missed the penalty.

Both sides will meet again in Morocco next week in the second deceived contest on April 23 with a spot in the semi-finals at stake.

Elsewhere, two-time winners Wydad Athletic Club beat home side CR Belouizdad 1-0 in the first leg of their TotalEnergies CAF Champions League quarter-final encounter on Saturday.

An early second-half goal from Guy Mbenza was enough as Wydad had the job done to give them an advantage heading into next weekend’s return tie in Casablanca.
