Defending champions Bo Rangers were held to a 1-1 draw by newly promoted side Real Republicans on Friday at the Bo Stadium. 

A bright start for Real Republicans – the Soccer Ambassadors after their long absence in the top flight. 

Real Republicans were up for a difficult task away from home. Both sides failed to score in the opening 45 minutes despite the few chances created. 

Late In the second half, the visitors opened their account through Ibrahim Sorie Conteh’s 88-minute goal. Substitute Fleance Kamara draws parity for the reigning champions. 

Rangers Lamin Kargbo was named Man of the Match in friday’s opener against Republicans.

Elsewhere, East End Lions kickstart their campaign with a 3-1 win over newly promoted side Lamboi FC of Lungi Town. 

The Killers were brilliant as they recorded two quick goals in the opening 10 minutes from new striker Sulaiman S. Kargbo and left-back Mohamed A.K Koroma, aka Ajay.

Centre-back Abdul Razack Conteh accounted for their third in the 49th minute before a consolation from Lamboi FC Skipper Basiru Olu Koroma, who scored from a rebound of Striker Sheka Noah Kamara’s missed penalty in the 55 minutes. 

History 

It’s worth mentioning that Lamboi FC’s Skipper Basiru Olu Koroma scored the club’s first-ever goal in the history of the Sierra Leone Premier League. However, not enough for a comeback as the league’s debutant struggled to match the prowess of the Killers.

After a glittering display, Lions Left Back Mohamed A.K. Koroma was named Man of the Match by match-day technical observers.

FC Kallon played a 2-2 draw against Bai Bureh Warriors in Portloko as Central Parade defeated East End Tigers in Magburaka on Saturday.
