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.

Elsewhere in Makeni, Diamond Stars stunned FC Johansen 3-1 as they battle to escape the relegation red line.

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.
