Sierra Leone Premier League: Luawa FC beat Old Edwardians 2-0 in Kailahun, Wilberforce Strikers and SLIFA share point at Parade, FC Johansen and Mighty Blackpool postponed

An impressive Luawa FC beat Old Edwardians 2-0 at the Kailahun town field on Saturday afternoon to solidify their stay in the Sierra Leone premier league.

Edward Fornah hits the net 15’ minutes into the first half when he converted a fascinating goal from the penalty spot to put the home side ahead before Daffae Nabieu doubles their lead 48 minutes into the second half.

The win was enough for the Cacao boys to take their points tally to 40 as they safely sit in eighth place on the table after playing thirty-two games.

Elsewhere in Freetown, relegated bond Wilberforce Striker came from behind to force Freetonian SLFIA to a 2-2 draw at the Parade playing field.

Idriss Swarray opens the scores for the visitors with an early goal in the first half. SLIFA doubled their lead in the 36’ minute with a goal from Osman Turay. The visiting side was in control of the match, but they couldn’t hold on to their lead as the home side leveled the scores before the half-time break.

Sesay strikes twice to help the sinking Stirkers secure a point in the game. The result is not favorable either as the threat of relegation continues to hit Wilberforce.

They are currently in sixteenth position with thirty-one points from thirty-two matches played. The possibility of escaping relegation is inevitable with only two games to play.


At the Lungi playing field, Mighty Blackpool and FC Johansen have to reschedule their match due to a waterlogged pitch.

Mighty Blackpool who are fighting to finish second place to gain a spot to qualify for the CAF Confederation Cup have to wait another day to see if they could acquire the result they are anticipating to get against FC Johansen.

Johansen on the other hand, is on the verge of relegating from the league for the first time since they were promoted. The Dream Chasers lie at the rock bottom of the table with thirty points from thirty matches. Winning all their remaining four matches might boost their chances of surviving relegation.
