Thursday, June 21, 2012
Both teams displayed good football especially in the first half of the game. But it took Gamtel thirteen minutes into the first half to open the scores courtesy of Matarr Sarr after slashing through Wallidan’s wobbly defense line to put his side ahead.
Meanwhile, Wallidan fought hard for an equalizer and the blue boys were rewarded in the 38 minutes after Gamtel’s custodian Adama Sillah brought down Wallidan player in the penalty spot, and team captain George Cole did not hesitate as he coolly slot pass the Gamtel short stopper. Gamtel 1 Wallidan 1 it ended in the first half.
Coming into the second half, Wallidan introduced some fresh legs but despite that the blue boys could not make their numerical superiority count. Lamin Sanneh of Gamtel could have doubled the score line for his side in the 74th minute, but his 18 yard strike went off target.
And later in the dying minutes of the game, Modou Lamin Sowe of Wallidan found himself in a one on one situation, but the striker failed to hit the back of the net. Finally it ended Gamtel 1 Wallidan 1.
Gamtel finished the season on 7th position with 27 points whilst Wallidan were relegated to the second division with 20 points.
